Crisped Parsnips

READY IN: 12mins
Recipe by Miraklegirl

From Food and Drink Magazine. Goes well with poulty and is a nice alternative from the more typical vegetable side dishes. Reheat on a cookie sheet for 10 minutes at 350 degrees if necessary.

My Mum, sister, and I had this as a side dish this evening. They were good, butn ot great - though I'm willing to take the blame. I may have over-steamed them at the start and I always seem to have trouble frying food after I've breaded it. I may actually try this recipe again to see if I can do it more successfully (or, better yet, convince someone more skilled to make it for me...). Thank you for the recipe, Miraklegirl.
