    Seasoned Cook's Note:

    A delicious southern dish! Rutabaga is a sweet root vegetable that is often seen on the menus of home-style cooking restaurants. It is of the turnip family. This vegetable goes well as a side dish with pork. Great use for leftover ham. Some people prefer it smashed, but we like it in small cubes. Tired of the same side dishes??? Try this'll love it!!!

      OM Goodness. Even the word rutabaga sends childhood chills up my spine. Hated the word, smell etc. Unfortunately growing up in Georgia it was a weekly dish. Trying to get over it 58 years later. Made these with 1 1/2 cups of ham( flavor camoflage). Not too shabby for a hated food

      I love rutabagas and this recipe was really good. I cheated a bit and used canned rutabagas to which I added the ham. They were perfectly seasoned and went well with the pork chops that I also cooked. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
