DH and I thought this was great. We both really like parsnips. I didn't have any breadcrumbs and felt as though I needed to top the dish with something, so I used bacon. Made for ZWT6.

Nice recipe for parsnip, I never heard of it before. My family and I tried parnsip for the first time. It ws good, I enjoyed it. The kids not so much. I think it is because we are not used to the parsnip taste.

This is a very tasty casserole. Our first experience with parsnips and we are now exploring other recipes. I wonder if you could use something other than half-and-half to make it healthier....
