Rutabaga Casserole

Russ Myers


One of the delicious Irish dishes that you can make is Rutabaga Casserole.
Rutabagas and turnips are very similar, with rutabagas being a bit larger and yellow inside instead of white. Rutabagas have a slightly milder, sweeter flavor than turnips, but they also have slightly more carbs per serving.

2 medium
rutabaga, cooked and mashed
1/4 c
fine bread crumbs (for top) (optional)
1/4 c
cream (or whole milk)
1/4 c
brown sugar, firmly packed
1/2 tsp

Bring to a boil; cover and simmer about 30-35 minutes or until tender. Drain well and mash with a potato masher. Add the butter, salt and pepper.
2Add milk, sugar, nutmeg and beaten eggs. Mix well.
Pour mixture into casserole dish.
3Sprinkle top with fine bread crumbs. (Optional)
