Triple Mash with Horseradish Bread Crumbs

Why settle for traditional mashed potatoes when you can enjoy three times the flavor? Combine spuds with rutabaga and parsnips, along with the zip of horseradish, for a taste treat. —Lily Julow, Lawrenceville, Georgia

    We had an abundance of parsnips from our produce box, none of us particularly big fans. Made this with the potatoes and parsnips and no lies- I want to eat this always and forever. The horseradish just elevated the taste of the root veg mash to another level entirely. Huge hit in our house, thank you so much for the recipe!

    Yum, yum, yum, yum...! This recipe is delicious. I mixed a bit more horseradish into the veggies and used panko mixed with a little oil instead of soft breadcrumbs. I also coarsely mashed the veggies. We had it with pork chops. I will make the patties with the leftovers. Thank you Lily for a wonderful (memories of my Nana's cooking) recipe...a keeper!

    Really great! Even the family liked it - they were a little skeptical at first, but when they have seconds, I know it's a hit!

    My husband and I tried this last night and we ate over half of it. He took half of what was left with him today to go with the bbq wings we had with it for lunch.
