I made the bacon-topped version and replaced the ham with sliced chicken andouille sausage. Although the flavor of the casserole was good, I think I ruined the texture by using the processor to "mash" the parsnips. I turned them to glue. Mash the parsnips with a mixer or by hand and I believe you'll enjoy the results.
