As it's soon Christmas I decided to post one of my favourite dishes for the

Christmas. It's made of rutabagas (called swedes in England). If you are not

used to the taste of rutabagas you could substitute one of the rutabagas with

potatoes. I usually add some nutmeg to the mashed rutabagas.




Lanttulaatikko (Rutabaga Casserole)


1-2 large rutabagas (about 1 kg)

water, salt

2 Tbs butter or margarine

1 Tbs flour

2 dl milk or half-and-half

salt, white pepper

2-3 tablespoons (sugar or) molass

1 egg

1 dl bread crumbs


Peal the rutabagas, cut into small cubes and cook in small amount of water

seasoned with salt until tender. Mash well. Whip butter or margarine and flour

into the rutabagas, add the milk gradually, whipping continuously. Add the egg

and season to taste. Place in a greased casserole dish, cover with bread crumbs

and bake in a 200°C (400°F) oven for 40 mins.
