  • 1 cup chopped peeled parsnips
  • 1 garlic clove, peeled
  • 2 tablespoons cream cheese, softened
  • 2 tablespoons buttermilk
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Pinch pepper
  • Dash hot pepper sauce
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped green onions

  1. Bake potatoes at 375° for 1 hour or until tender. Allow to cool. Place parsnips and garlic in a small saucepan; cover with water. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 20 minutes or until tender. Drain and mash.
  2. Cut a thin slice off the top of each potato; discard. Scoop out the pulp, leaving a thin shell. In a bowl, mash potato pulp with parsnips and garlic. Beat in next five ingredients, using a hand mixer.
