Parsnips with Bacon

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Bergy

Parsnips are an under used vegetable and they really are delicious. I usually cut out the hard center core but many leave the core in. Season with salt & Pepper.

Parsnips are just coming into season here now, so no woody cores in mine! I made no changes to this yummy recipe, but I did use fresh breadcrumbs as I had no dried ones and I sliced the parsnips prior to boiling! These were really outstanding (from an already converted parsnip lover)!!
