Place the hot cooked rutabaga cubes into a large bowl. If you are using cold or refrigerated rutabaga cubes heat it in the microwave for 2 minutes or until hot.
Add the unsalted butter to the bowl with the rutabaga and beat with a hand mixer for about 30 seconds or until the butter had been mixed into the rutabaga.
Add the salt, ground pepper and roasted garlic to the bowl and beat until combined.
Add the half and half, cream or milk if using, to the bowl and beat for 1 minute.
Add half of the cooked bacon to the bowl and using a large spoon fold the bacon into the mashed rutabaga.
Transfer to a serving bowl and sprinkle the remaining bacon over the top of the mashed rutabaga.
Before starting roast a large head of garlic and cook the bacon until crispy.
Peel, cut and rinse the rutabaga and if boiling on the stove start cooking the rutabaga now.
If making the Instant Pot Rutabaga make the roasted garlic and cook the bacon before pressure cooking the fresh rutabaga.
How to cook rutabaga in a pot

Bring the uncovered pot to a hard boil. Reduce the temperature and continue to boil until the rutabaga is fork tender.
