Bacon provides a simple addition to this tasty side dish that’s made with rutabagas and carrots.

Ingredients

2
rutabagas (about 1 lb), peeled, cut into 1-inch cubes
4
large carrots (about 3/4 lb), cut into 1-inch cubes
1
teaspoon salt
1/2
cup butter
1
large sweet onion, thinly sliced, slices cut in half
1/4
cup whipping cream
1/2
teaspoon freshly ground pepper
5
slices thick-sliced bacon, crisply cooked, crumbled (1/3 cup)
Fresh rosemary sprig, if desired

Directions

  • 1 In 3-quart Dutch oven, place rutabagas, carrots and enough water to cover; add 1/2 teaspoon of the salt. Heat to boiling; reduce heat to low. Cover; simmer 30 to 35 minutes or until tender. Drain.
  • 2 Meanwhile, in 12-inch nonstick skillet, melt 1/4 cup of the butter over medium heat. Cook onion in butter 25 minutes, stirring occasionally, until very tender.
  • 3 In large bowl, mash rutabagas and carrots until almost no lumps remain. Add onion, whipping cream, pepper, remaining 1/4 cup butter and remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt; stir until well blended. Sprinkle with bacon. Garnish with rosemary.
