Canned Rutabaga at Wallies..(hash browns)

I was shocked to see canned rutabaga, so I bought a can.

Fried up some bacon (4 strips), took it out of the pan and added 1/4 of an onion and 1/4 of a green pepper and cooked that in the bacon grease. Then I added the drained rutabaga and cooked it about 10 minutes..Added the cooked bacon in pieces. We are having this with eggs tonight..I wonder what dh will say..LOL.

Interesting post, I have never had rutabaga. Are they diced in the can and what do they taste like?

It was great..Dh even ate all of his (I put it on the plate).

Yes, they are diced into little cubes and taste like turnip. I think the bacon grease gave it more of a bacony flavor..

Yikes..I threw away the can..but it was like 9ish carbs for each serving.

They didn't brown like taters, but I cooked them in bacon grease, so the bacon taste was absorbed by the rutabagas.

I just checked my can that I got from WM recently. It shows 1/2 C serving size with 3.5 servings in the can. Each serving has 30 calories/6g carbs, 3g fiber.

Thanks, Carolyn for the recipe. I didn't know what I should do with it!

Of course, fresh is always best, but this is certainly a quick and easy sub.

I finally used my can. I sauteed some onion in butter, added some salt, pepper, garlic and cilantro then added the well-drained can of rutabagas. Sauteed those until warmed and added 2 tbsp of salsa and covered and turned the stove off but kept the pan on the eye. The rutabagas soaked up the salsa perfectly and it turned out really good! There were a few fibrous pieces in there but overall a very quick, cheap and easy side dish.
