Polish rutabaga-potato mash -- brukiew z ziemniak -- is a popular recipe because it uses two vegetables that have become favorites in Poland for their overwintering properties.

This is a delicious alternative to straight mashed potatoes and if you blanch the rutabaga first, it gets rid of some of the bitter flavor rutabaga can have.
