This Turnip Puff (Rutabaga Puff) is a delicious side dish to be enjoyed any time of year!


  • 3 cups hot mashed rutabaga (About 1 large sized rutabaga (I boil my rutabaga))
  • 3 tbsp butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 tbsp flour
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp pepper

Breadcrumb Topping:

  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1/23/4 cup bread crumbs


  1. Cook (I boil my rutabaga), then mash it.  If you like, you can use a hand blender to puree it so it is nice and smooth (I actually prefer this method).
  2. Stir in the 3 tbsp butter.
  3. Beat in the 2 eggs.
  4. In a separate bowl combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and pepper.
  5. Add the flour mix to the rutabaga mix and mix well. Then add to a 2 L casserole dish.
  6. In a saucepan, melt 2 tbsp of butter and add the bread crumbs. Cook for about 1 minute.
  7. Sprinkle the bread crumb/butter mix on top of the rutabaga mix.
  8. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 35-40 minutes, until brown and hot.
