Parsnip Pancakes Recipe

Instead of rice or potatoes with her meal, Mom chose these delicate pancakes that are crispy on the outside and tender inside. The parsnips have a pleasant sweetness, while the chives add a hint of onion flavor. —Lois Frazee, Gardnerville, Nevada

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 23, 2013

"This was my first time trying parsnips. I think it must be an acquired taste. I still haven't decided if I will make again."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 7, 2011

"Made this last year, forgot to review... Made again tonight and it's definately a keeper. I don't know what 6 servings is, but with the 1/4 cup measure, it made 11 pancakes"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 2, 2009

"These are the absolute best! I have made them again and again. I have a friend whose favorite veggie is parsnips and this is a great change instead of just boiled with a slathering of butter. I would really recommend you try them!"
