About this recipe: This winter vegetable casserole is jam-packed full of flavour. Swedes, parsnips and potatoes are mashed with butter, then topped with caramelised onions and baked until golden. Serve as a side for Sunday lunch or Christmas dinner.
I served this with a thyme and rosemary seasoned pork roast last night. I scaled it to four servings, as we are a small family. Otherwise, I followed the recipe exactly. My husband, who always said he "hates" rutabagas and parsnips, loved this recipe. He went back for thirds! My mother-in-law also loved this, and I will definitely make this again. Peeling all the vegetables was worth the effort. - 08 Feb 2004 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I made this for Thanksgiving thinking it was rather risky because the potatoes would be "different." What a pleasant surprise! Even the kids loved the slightly different flavor and the potatoes were devoured. I made a double batch, so I sat down in front of the TV the night before and peeled my heart out. That's the only drawback, those nasty rutabaga and turnip skins. Buts it's worth it. - 21 Nov 2001 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Was looking for a different mashed potato recipe to serve with our annual New Years Eve Lamb roast and found this one. It was perfect. The only changes I made was to cut back on the butter and instead added a little of the leftover broth to the mashed vegetables. I also sauteed the onion in mostly olive oil with a tablespoon of butter. Just Hubby and I and we loved this, but I plan to make a big batch for my next family potluck! - 01 Jan 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
