Just like the regular mashed potatoes, except with a little added kick!
Recipe type: Side
Cuisine: American
Serves: 6
  • 3 large russet potatoes
  • 3 parsnips – peeled, cored and chopped
  • 3 tbsp salted butter
  • ½-3/4 cup half and half
  • salt and pepper to taste
  1. Fill a large pot with water and add about 2 tbsp salt – this gives the potatoes and parsnips a lot of flavor without salting like crazy after they’re cooked.
  2. Throw in the potatoes and parsnips, cover pot and bring to a boil.
  3. Cook until potatoes and parsnips can be pierced easily with a fork.
  4. Drain potatoes and parsnips and put back into the pot. Mash in the butter and as much half and half until you get to your desired consistency – I like a few chunks left in! Season with salt and pepper.
