Method

  1. Bring a large pan of salted water to the boil. Tip in the potatoes and parsnips, bring back to the boil and simmer for 5 mins. Gently drain so they don’t rough up too much, then tip into a baking dish.
  2. Melt the butter in a big saucepan, then stir in the flour and cook for 2 mins. Gradually stir in the milk to a smooth, lump-free sauce. Cook gently, stirring constantly, until the sauce is nicely thickened – about 5 mins. Stir in the mustard, honey, vinegar and some seasoning. Pour evenly over the potatoes. Mix the crumbs and cheese together, then scatter over the top and set aside until ready to bake. You can cover the dish and chill for up to 24 hrs before finishing.
  3. Cook the bake at 200C/180C fan/ gas 6 for 30-40 mins until the top is crisp and golden and the sauce hot through.

Lovely recipe, I made it more of a meal on it's own by leaving out the parsnip (didn't have any) but added carrots, peas, cauliflower and cooked chicken, more breadcrumbs and cheese on top.

Made this with carrots as didnt have enough parsnip. I also wanted to use leftover sour and double creams so reduced the amount of milk and flour and worked perfectly. Made enough to freeze too. Well recommended

This is delicious. Freezes well, I reheated from frozen. The crispy crumbs provide good contrast to the softness of the veg. Great flavours with a straightforward roast.

I used sweet potatoes instead of ordinary - brightened up the dish and certainly made it taste better than ever. Perfect for entertaining. Also freezes well and can be cooked once thawed.

i used raw leeks instead of potatoes and made the sauce slightely thicker. Was delicious.
