Potatoes, carrots and rutabagas are a combo in which the whole is greater than the sum of its parts - a menage a trois made in heaven. Add leeks, cheese sauce and bacon, and how can you loose? Quibbles - could have used a little salt (I know Miller is on a salt reduced diet but I'm not.) I cooked twice as many potatoes, carrots and rutabagas as called for, which was a good thing. Two of us (hungry folks) still made serious inroads into '4 servings' but then it was the entire dinner, not a side dish. Other changes: I mashed the veg together lightly to mingle those great flavours, threw a few mushrooms in with the bacon, and made this on a Monday.
