      This is a wonderful recipe - soft, mild but hearty and elegant. As I had no turnips at home I prepared it with potatoes and carrots and it turned out just great. While I prepared the sauce I put the vegetable mix in the oven, so it could already cook and the time reduced from 1 hour to 40 minutes all together. I am so lucky you shared this recipe with us, this will definitively become a keeper and is comfort food as its best.

      Oh-Oh-Oh! What a wonderfull way to serve rutebaga. The savory was so perfect with the rutebega flavor. I used fresh grated Gruyere cheese for the sauce. DH and I ate it all! Thanks Allyoop for sharing your family recipe.

      Great recipe! Well seasoned and goes great with my Christmas Tortiere. I have been making this for several years during the holidays, the whole family loves it. Even some relatives that do not like Rutabaga said it was good.
