Baked Parsnips

We enjoy this veggie often in the Northeast, and I've experimented with different ways of fixing them. This is by far one of my favorite parsnip recipes. —Robert Atwood, West Wareham, Massachusetts

    I was not a huge parsnips fan, but this recipe may have changed my mind.

    Simple and oh, so delicious! Only change was I used Greek Seasoning instead of Oregano (which is mostly oregano).

    Pretty easy to prepare but not the quickest of weeknight dishes to bake. My husband and I both liked the parsnips this way, but neither of my children were huge fans. I may have to try it again but bake it with a little Parmesan cheese too.

    My younger son loves parsnips. He says this is the absolute best way to fix them. The rest of my family happily eat them, too. This is especially good with a beef roast.
