    MarieRynr's Note:

    This is our absolute favorite way of eating Rutabaga. Had it done this way in a Mennonite Restaurant in St. Jacobs, Ontario and I was hooked. Try it, you won't be disappointed! (Use your food processor for the grating to save time!)

      Wow! This was SOOO good! What a nice change from 'boring old yellow turnips'. Added some onions, too. Will definitely make again. Thanks for sharing!

      **Just made it again - fried up some slab bacon & threw it in..... to die for - literally!

      I adore this and DH likes it too. I do add some chopped onion, like a few others do, which I cut pretty small in the blender because grating it doesn't work very well. I think I use extra butter and have replaced it with olive oil before which was good as well. This is the first rutabaga recipe I've tried and I fell in love. Definitely will make this again.

      These are marvelous and buttery and very autumnal - but they do take a long time to cook and they do require a LARGE pan.
