TRADITIONAL FINNISH RUTABAGA CASSEROLE | BLOGMAS DAY 13


This is something that's pretty popular on our family's Christmas table & now I'm going to share the recipe with you guys. This is something I don't personally prefer to eat, but you know - I'm not a fan of Christmas food anyway. My mom absolutely loves this and could eat it all year round! 


INGREDIENTS: 

- 1kg rutabagas (turnips, neeps, swedes or whatever the fuck you like to call them, image below.)



- 2dl double cream
- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon of salt
- 1 teaspoon of ginger
- 3/4dl syrup

on the top: 
- breadcrumbs
- butter


HOW TO ROLL WITH IT?

1. Peel & slice the rutabagas. Boil them in salted water until they're soft. Pour the water away, but save ~1dl. Squash the rutabagas. 

2. Add all the other ingredients to the squash and add saved water if needed. 

3. Butter the mold, pour your rutabaga squash in and add few small lumps of butter to the top of your casserole. You also want to spread the breadcrumbs on top of it. 

Bake it in the oven in 175°C degrees for 2 hours & enjoy.

    1. Hahah, for the second I thought have I managed to share a recipe with only scandinavian things in it, but yeah - rutabaga is an american word for turnips :D

  3. Sounds nice, I think rutabaga is like what we say is turnips (or neeps if you are from Scotland) here. With the ginger in it I bet that it smells so good when it is cooking
