Reviews for Parsnip Potato Gratin
"I used smoked gruyere. The onions must have been very sweet as I thought it was too sweet. I'll use less onion next time, and try and find an onion that is not so sweet."
"This is very good and I have given this to many of my Friends and Family."
"Can I make this the night before and reheat the next day?"
"This is really very, very good. We cut the recipe in half because there are only two of us at this stage in life....... but we did make a huge pan of it when the kids were all over for dinner. Everybody agrees it is a really great recipe, and a nice new twist on the potato gratin classic. My husband adds a few green onions, chopped to give it some color and interest. WE LOVE IT!"
"I didn't put as many parsnips in as the receipe called for and it was still very good."
"Yum! This was a fun way to try a new exotic veggie. If you don't have parsnips, just potatoes would be good too. The parsnips give it a wonderful flavor though. Our family loved this, the swiss cheese sauce was so good, I'll never buy canned alfredo again. I may try the sauce on macaroni."
