What a great recipe! I recently started growing my own parsnips and this is the perfect way to enjoy them! I will definitely be making this recipe again!

I made this recipe last night and it was very good. We had never had parsnips so did not know what to expect. They do have an interesting sweet flavor but with the cheese and bacon and cream, they were very good. How fun to try a new vegetable. I recommend this recipe as a Volunteer Field Editor.

This is delicious. DH says to make it again. Only thing i changed was the cheese, i used motzarella as that is all i had. Found this in Best of Country Cooking 2007, pg.85 for those that have the annual.
