Always have the fixins for burger night at the ready, and this week, try an alternative to the classic french fry with an often overlooked root vegetable.
Peel rutabaga and slice into spears, toss spears with olive oil and salt. Arrange on a baking sheet and bake at 400 degrees for about 30 minutes, or until the rutabaga fries are golden and lightly crisped on the outside. While the fries are roasting, shape and season beef patties, or defrost veggie burgers. Cook burgers in a skillet and serve on an english muffin with all the fixins, a side of coleslaw and rutabaga oven fries.
