A good substitute for candied sweet potatoes. Be very careful when you are peeling or cutting a rutabaga. They are a beast to handle.

  1. Cooking the rutabagas in lightly salted water until just soft (about 15 to 20 minutes depending on slice size).
  2. Mix the rutabagas, sweetener, cinnamon, salt, and cream with half of the butter until smooth with an electic mixer.
  3. Spoon into a lightly greased casserole dish and smooth the top.
  4. Bake, uncovered, at 350°F for 30 minutes and melt the remaining butter and set aside.
  5. After the 30 minutes, sprinkle the pecans over the top and drizzle with the melted butter.
  6. Bake for an additional 15 minutes.

This was quite good. Nevertheless, I think it needs a bit of brown sugar--sprinkled on top--and a more sweetner. I also think one cooked/finelly mashed carrot might do the trick to make it look/taste more like sweet potatoes. Will try it next time. Thanks a lot for sharing!
