Beautiful fall colors and amazing flavors make this a favorite at any holiday gathering. Stir in milk and sour cream for a creamier texture if desired. The beets should not mash all the way. It should be orange-ish with streaks and dots of red from the beets. The name alone will convince your picky eaters to try this, and the taste will make them want more!

I only gave my own recipe four stars because you really should add the milk or sour cream suggested in my description. (Add 1 or 2 Tablespoons whole milk and 2 or 3 Tablespoons sour cream (to taste.) *Leave out the Nutmeg, Parsnip, Rutabaga, and Turnip if you want a more 'kid-friendly' version, as they all tend to be somewhat bitter to the younger palette. Treat these just like mashed potatoes: Butter and salt or rich gravy. I have even made potato latkes with the left-overs with great success!

Really liked the flavor, but had trouble with the rutabaga. I would either omit it or put it in to cook before the other veggies. I cut all the veggies in similar size and tested them for doneness, but I guess I didn't poke a rutabaga. They were unmashable. The beets were a little on the firm side but it wasnt as much or an issue as with the rutabaga... which was woody. This would be a pretty addition to a holiday table

I made these for my grandchildren and they loved them. I subbed carrots for the rutabaga. They thought they were fun and said they looked like dinner on the movie HOOK. Next time they suggested stirring in some mixed vegetables for more color.
