A Word From The Cook

This has become a staple with any of our holiday dinners.   Easy because it can be done in advance and heated when needed.

  • 4-5 grinds (1/2 Tsp) Salt
  • 3-4 grinds (/4 Tsp) Pepper

Topping (optional)


  1. In a medium pot, place the cubed Rutabaga covered with water and boil for 35-45 minutes (rutabaga should be soft enough to mash)

  3. Add the butter and continue to whip until combined.
  4. Add the beaten eggs and whip again to incorporate.
