Ingredients Convert to Metric

  • 2 rutabagas (about 34 oz. total)
  • 1 butter-flavored cooking spray
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1 dash of Lawry's Seasoned Salt, to taste


Place your oven rack at the lowest setting in your oven. Preheat oven and cookie sheet to 450ºF.

Peel the rutabagas and cut into strips the size of steak fries. Toss the fries with the olive oil until coated. Sprinkle lightly with salt and toss again.

Remove the cookie sheet from the oven and quickly place the fries on it in a single layer; return to the oven. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until tender and cooked to your liking. Serve with ketchup, if desired.
