"I had never used rutabaga before. They're really hard to cut through, and tasted kind of like a turnip. My only change was to use stuffing cubes in place of the bread crumbs."

"rutabegas and carrots cook for the same amount of time (20min) then add potatoes cook another 15min. Otherwise potatoes are mush. I diced everything 1/2in square. Boiled milk mixture in microwave 1min, stir, repeat until as thick as I wanted, approx. 4min"
