¾ lb Parsnips, peeled and cut into 1 inch pieces
2 lbs Yukon gold potatoes, peeled and quartered
6 tbsp Butter
¾ cup Whole milk
1 tbsp Salt
Salt or garlic salt & pepper to taste
Place potatoes and parsnips in a large pot and cover with water. Add tablespoon of salt and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Cook vegetables until tender, then drain and rest.
Heat butter and milk in a small saucepan on low-medium. Return vegetables to the pot and mash with a potato masher. Slowly add the milk and butter mixture as you continue to mash. Season with salt or garlic salt and pepper. Serve in a large dish or bowl and enjoy!
