Have a little difficulty distinguishing a rutabaga from a turnip. In Canada we call the larger yellow vegetable a turnip, but I think in the USA they refer to it as a rutabaga. This delicious recipe calls for the large yellow type turnip. Serves 6

2 medium Turnips 2 medium
2 Beaten eggs 2
1 tbsp Brown sugar 15 mL
3/4 tsp Salt 4 mL
pinch Nutmeg pinch
2 tbsp Butter 25 mL
3 tbsp Flour 50 mL
1 tsp Baking powder 5 mL
Pepper to taste
1 cup Dry bread crumbs 250 mL
2 tbsp Melted butter 25 mL

Cook turnips with salt and a touch of sugar until tender. Drain well, then mash very well.

Add butter and eggs and mix well with wooden spoon. Stir in remaining ingredients except bread crumbs and melted butter. Put in casserole or soufflé dish.

Combine bread crumbs with melted butter. Spread over top.

Bake at 350°F (180°C)for 25 minutes.
