    I use to think rutabaga were pretty flavorless, but the nutmeg is just what they needed to bring them to life. I will be seeing what I can do to reduce the butter in this recipe though. - 11/3/09

  • This was delicious! I put green onions in with the other ingredients, and I think it added to the flavor. Great recipe! - 6/26/14
