Whipped Rutabaga (aka Yellow "Turnip") Casserole - GREAT!
I found this recipe somewhere on the Net.. not specifically low carb, but awesome nonetheless. Didn't put the bacon in it and haven't calculated the carbs.. but i'm sure it's not too bad. It is reminiscent of sweet potato casserole without the marshmallows! A very subtle "sweetness". I made it with the 1 tsp of real brown sugar, out of consideration for my BF who doesn't care for the aftertaste of sweeteners, but using brown Sugar Twin will also lower the carb count.
This rutabaga recipe is sure to tempt even the most stubborn and picky eaters. The best part of the recipe is that it can be made a few days ahead and just heated up before dinner.
Prep Time: 30 minutes
