Lovely side dish - a nice change from the standard mashed potatoes, and a bonus that it can be made ahead. The rutabaga adds an earthy flavor layer, and the cream cheese gives the dish a hint of tangy-ness. I tasted the pure after each addition of cream cheese because I thought 4 oz would be too much, but it wasn't. I served this with sausages braised in red wine and an arugula salad. We liked this dish so much I am going to serve it for Christmas Eve dinner.
Delightful recipe! The rutabaga adds a very nice depth to the dish. This would also work well with turkey for Thanksgiving.The mustard can be varied according to your taste.
Skip the mustard!!! Yucky!!! Threw it away!!!
