Wonderful stuff. I will keep this and use it over and over. My family is usually luke-warm when it comes to rutabagas (or neeps, as my Scottish friend calls them), but they really liked this a lot. I used a little less sugar and orange juice to suit my own taste. Excellent! Many thanks.

Great recipe, very easy to adapt to your own tastes. I added an extra pinch of nutmeg, some cinnamon, and a couple tablespoons of applesauce to give it more depth (and mask the rutabaga taste from picky eaters!). I also added a light breadcrumb topping for more texture, and baked it off in the oven while I prepared the rest of the meal. Added the fresh parsley on top just before serving. Will be making this for many years to come!
