READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Nana Lee

This is a dish I used to make only at Thanksgiving. I loved it so much that I began making a ton of it and freezing the rest in serving sizes! If you don't like turnip/rutabaga, try this way.

I always add just a bit of nutmeg, adds a different dimension. Guys love this recipe!
