While most recipes from Farm Journal's cookbooks are basic and delicious, there are a few weird ones!I couldn't resist putting this one up. I had to find a photo of rutabagas online, but of course no one had rutabaga pastries online...
3 c. mashed cooked rutabagas
1 tsp. salt (oh boy, charging the defibrillator)
1/8 tsp. pepper
2 tsp. sugar
1/4 c. melted butter
2 eggs, slightly beaten
1 c. fresh bread crumbs
Combine rutabagas, salt, pepper, sugar, butter and eggs in bowl. Whip until well blended (whipped rutabagas?). Stir in bread crumbs. Turn onto greased 1 qt. casserole. Bake in 325F oven 50 minutes or until lightly browned and puffy. Makes 6 servings.
I finished Maggie Sefton's new one, Skein of the Crime Skein of the Crime (A Knitting Mystery) last night, in between my teen mystery reading and my reading for the ALA Conference next week. I always enjoy her stories with the characters who meet in the knitting shop to ferret out clues and secrets. I had the pleasure of knitting with Maggie in a class at Bouchercon last year. Great fun, just like her books.
