Vegetarian Rutabaga Puffs Recipe

Day 51.

Brunch time again! Yay! This is a CSA box-inspired brunch. Rutabagas!

Rutabaga Puffs
2 C cooked, mashed rutabaga
1 C soft bread crumbs
1 Tbsp. sugar
1/2 C milk
1 egg
1 Tbsp. butter or margarine

Combine rutabaga, bread crumbs and sugar.

Beat milk and egg together; stir into rutabaga mixture.

Spoon into a greased 1 quart casserole; dot with butter or margarine.

Bake at 350° for 45 minutes or until top is lightly browned.

The Results
Yum. Most recipes have spices included like ginger, cinnamon, etc., but I went for the blank slate and figured everyone could add what they want. So yummy and it's sort of like a mild sweet potato. I've not had rutabagas before and I really like them.

  1. A casserole made out of mashed rutabaga is a traditional Finnish Christmas dish. I think it may be sweeetened by a process similar to malting, as it's quite sweet and quite dark and the potato casserole eaten at Christmas is sweetened like this. I believe some cloves/nutmeg/allspice is also used.

  2. I think my husband would really like this. He loves rutabagas, though we rarely get them here.

  3. I really liked it. Jas said it was like squash casserole, which I've never had. Yummy.
