Last week she had a recipe for what she called Egg Nests and as soon as I saw it, I knew I wanted to try it. Well, I'm not sure what I did wrong but I just couldn't get it to come out the way she did. No matter though, I'm creative and experienced enough in the kitchen to go with the flow. Basically, you peel and shred rutabaga, then add some seasonings and what you end up with is very, very similar to hash browns.
A rutabaga is a root vegetable that is a cross between a cabbage and a turnip. Both the root and the leafy greens are edible, though you've most likely only seen the root in your grocery store. They look like this:
Rutabaga "Hash Browns"
- 1 medium rutabaga, peeled
2 small shallots, thinly sliced
1 clove garlic, minced
1 T olive oil
Slice shallots and mince garlic. Heat olive oil in a large skillet (cast iron is great if you have one). Put the shallots and garlic into the hot skillet and saute for 1 minute. Add the shredded rutabaga, stir well, then let cook without touching for a minute or so. Stir again and let cook without touching. Continue to do this until the mixture is golden.
