White Cheddar Parsnips and Potatoes

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by MarieRynr

This is a delicious side dish, which goes really well with pork, chicken, beef or lamb. As an alternative presentation, transfer puree to a pastry bag with a large star tip and pip individual portions onto a baking sheet. Sprinkle with cheddar cheese and bake until cheese melts.

For no other reason that I wondered what a parsnip was I tried this and really liked it. I put them together like the recipe says but did them in individual ramekins. I omitted the nutmeg and just seasoned with salt and pepper. This was an excellent, easy side dish.
