Reviews for Garlic-Mashed Rutabagas & Potatoes
"I like rutabagas but I prefer them mashed with brown sugar and the potatoes separate."
"I've never used rutabagas before and the addition was yummy! I will definitely make this dish again!"
"This was my first time to cook a rutabaga. The dish was good, but I think I prefer regular mashed potatoes over these. But I am glad I tried and encourage others to try as well.Field Editor since July, 2013"
"Made this for Thanksgiving. I used turnips instead. I also fried bacon and used the dripping too !!!! Very Good !!!!!"
