Great alternative to potatoes! A rich creamy homemade cheese sauce pepped up with a few select spices makes a great accompaniment to any meal!

Directions

  1. Bring rutabaga to a boil into a large pot of salted water over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer until tender, 10 to 15 minutes. Drain.

  3. Grease a 9x13-inch baking dish.
  4. Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Cook and stir garlic in melted butter until golden, about 5 minutes.
  5. Whisk flour into garlic mixture until smooth.
  6. Slowly whisk milk into flour mixture until thickened and creamy, about 5 minutes.
  7. Stir Cheddar cheese into milk sauce until cheese is melted and bubbly, about 3 minutes. Season with cayenne pepper, salt, and black pepper.
  8. Transfer rutabaga to the prepared baking dish. Pour cheese sauce over rutabaga.
  9. Sprinkle bread crumbs and paprika over rutabaga.
  10. Bake in preheated oven until sauce is thickened and bubbly, 20 to 25 minutes.

This dish was very good. I like rutabaga anyway, but adding cheese just brings it up a notch. I made a smaller quantity with just one rutabaga and I still have enough leftovers for a couple more meals. It could become a one dish meal with some diced ham added. I will make this again. Thank you.
