Clapshot (Potatoes, Carrots & Rutabaga)

Recipe by Jenny Sanders
READY IN: 50mins




  • Peel the rutabaga and cut it in thin slices.
  • Put it in a large pot with plenty of water and bring it to a boil.
  • Meanwhile, peel the carrots and cut them in thick slices.
  • When the rutabaga has been cooking for about 10 minutes, add the carrots.
  • Meanwhile, peel the potatoes, and cut them into large chunks.
  • When the rutabaga has been cooking for 20 minutes (total) add the potatoes, and cook for about another 20 minutes.
  • When all the vegetables are tender, drain them and mash them with the butter, salt and pepper.
  • These are delicious mashed somewhat coarsely and served as-is.
  • You can also purée them very well, beat in the egg, and turn them into a buttered casserole dish, then bake them until lightly toasted on top.
