I love rutabage fries. I coat mine with smoked paprika and sprinkle with kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper. I don't like rosemary, so I don't use that, but garlic powder is tasty, too. I don't use fresh garlic, because I think these need to cook at a higher temp and for longer than 30 minutes, and the garlic would burn. I would suggest at least 425 for really nicely browned pieces. Mine never get super crispy, but I don't care...I love them!


I followed this recipe exactly, and it is so tasty! Love the rosemary. Thank you!


These were really really tasty and smelled wonderful cooking. I found the cooking time to be off though. At 30 mins my fries were still undercooked and not browned at all. I think maybe a slightly hotter oven might work better. I had a hot spot in my oven so some of them got a little too dark, but those were yummy too.
