Updated Dec 21, 2011

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

Steps
