    I found this recipe online a few months ago and after a little tweaking it has become my favorite way to cook rutabaga! You could use this as any meal of the day, perfect for dinner or breakfast!

    Rutabaga Puff

    Ingredients:
    4 cups cooked, mashed rutabaga (about 1 large or 2 1/2 to 3 lbs rutabaga)
    4 tablespoons melted butter
    1 teaspoon fresh chopped dill weed or 1/2 teaspoon dried dill weed
    salt, pepper and paprika to taste
    4 eggs separated (I add an additional egg for each additional cup of rutabaga)
    2-3 cloves of garlic (not in the original recipe but I eat garlic with EVERYTHING. Elephant garlic adds a nice buttery taste)

    Preparation:
    To cook the raw rutabaga: peal and chop into small bit-size pieces, boil for about 15 minutes until soft enough to mash.

    Combine mashed rutabaga, melted butter, dill, salt, pepper, paprika and chopped garlic in a bowl. Separate eggs. Mix yokes into rutabaga mixture. Beat egg whites in separate bowl until stiff peaks form; fold into the rutabaga mixture gently (this gives it it’s puff!) Lightly pile finished mixture into a greased 1-1 1/2 quart casserole dish. Bake in a preheated oven at 375 degrees for 30-40 minutes until set and top is golden brown.

    Serves 4-6

    Or just one, in my case 🙂 Enjoy!

    Thank you for the post. I have never had rutabaga and was wondering how to cook it, etc. I think I would replace the butter with ghee though. I’m going to give this a try!

    Yum!! I made this tonight and it was delicious! Some bites were a little bitter but Im guessing that’s what rutabaga tastes like ? But the dish was great. This diet limits everything so it was great to have something different. Thank you for the idea 🙂

    Can anyone explain why does the rutabaga taste bitter? I’m not into bitter stuffs, so.

    I have gotten bitter rutabagas before as well. In my experience they were starting to go bad. A fresh one should taste sweet. The ones I buy are covered in wax. Annoying to peel off but it does seem to keep them fresher.

    Good luck!

    Rutabagas should not be bitter – they are generally pretty sweet tasting. If you didn’t like the results or can’t find good rutabagas, you could try this recipe with turnip roots.
