Parsnips & Turnips Au Gratin Recipe

Parsnips & Turnips Au Gratin Recipe

“This is a delicious variation on au gratin that features something besides potatoes. I sometimes substitute rutabaga for the turnips. It’s a well-guarded recipe in my collection.” Until now! —Priscilla Gilbert, Indian Harbour Beach, Florida
