1/1 Photo of Smashed Roots
This is great for Thanksgiving or any time. What I like about this is I get to have "variety" in one dish. All quantities are plus/minus. Feel free to add other root veggies like turnips, sweet potatoes, etc. People who claim not to like one or more of the roots, simply won't notice they are there. Variation on recipe in an old Woman's Day.
