Creamy Mashed Rutabaga with Bacon
Rutabagas have tough skin and are often enclosed in wax to prevent them from drying out. Cut away the wax (or boil for 1 1/2 minutes and wipe off) and skin with a sharp chef's knife instead of using a vegetable peeler. Whole milk adds a smooth, creamy texture to this mash.
To make ahead: Refrigerate for up to 2 days. Reheat in a covered baking dish at 350 degrees F for about 25 minutes.
