DIRECTIONS

  • Heat oil or butter in a medium to large sized heavy bottomed skillet over medium heat.
  • Add rutabaga and saute until golden. Can cover for a few minutes with a lid to help steam the cubes. Season with salt and pepper to taste (and ranch seasoning if using), stirring occasionally.
  • Once rutabaga is as browned as you like your home fries, add bacon bits and stir in the Ricotta, if using.
  • Note: This is really a guideline based on how I like my home fries. Onion and peppers could be added to the oil before adding the 'baga. This could be topped with any shredded cheese you like rather than the Ricotta. Pepper jack would be good in this -- It's up to your own taste.
