I kid you not, this is called clapshot. Apparently it is a Scottish recipe, similar to neeps and tatties. It is quite yummy though, and the perfect GF side dish when you’re a bit tired of plain mashed potatoes.
Take equal parts swede/rhutabaga and potatoes (about half a swede and four large potatoes for four people), peel and chop. Drop the swede in a pot of boiling water and cook for about five minutes before adding in the potatoes. Cook all until soft and drain. Mash with butter, milk, salt, pepper, and a good helping of chives. The mash should look spotted and taste mildly like onion. Serve as you would mashed potatoes.
Apparently you can use fried onions in place of the chives, and you can also top the clapshot with fried bacon for a yummy change. Mmmm….
