Lovely, comfort food on a cold, dark night. Served it with sticky onion gravy.

Great dish - however instead of brussel sprouts I used leeks. I also used pork and leek flavored sausages.

Loved this mash, much more interesting than just mashed potatoes alone. I'm not a huge mustard fan so I omitted it from the mash and my boyfriend had lots on the side as he loves mustard.

Would serve with gravy next time as I found it a bit dry. Love mash with gravy!

Made this for the family tea this evening and an everso fussy daughter went back for mash seconds! Doubled the ingredients and added a few more sprouts. Will definitely be making this again,.

Personally, I prefer to cook the sprouts separately, either in water or fried in a little butter, and add once the potatoes and parsnips have been mashed. That way it produces a much creamier mash. Delicious. Also, cooked double and made into potato cakes the next day.

Gorgeous!! Made this last night, the mash was lovely but a little too watery for my taste, I substituted the sprouts with leeks, which was lovely, however I think next time I'll try 2 potatoes, 1 leek and 1 parsnip. Made it with a lovely onion gravy, delicious!!!

I don't much like sprouts and husband hates parsnips, but I made this anyway. We both loved it, he says it is the only way he ever wants to eat sausages in future! Didn't add the mustard though, had it on the side. Made twice as much so we can have it fried up tomorrow with a poached egg for lunch.

I found this very tasty. Love the sprouts with the potatoes.

This was seriously good! Had with veggie sausages and wholegrain mustard. The mustard added a lovely subtle warmth. I found the mash just gorgeous. I wish we'd made more of it as I would wager left overs would make fantastic bubble and squeak patties.

Love this recipe. A lovely winter warmer. Did not use the mustard and my daughter spotted the taste of the parsnips (which she hates), but she ate it all the same. I have used the mash with many other meals and now my husband and I eat Brussels Sprouts (only this way).

This looks really nice. I woulden't personally have the mustard though. I think it woulden't change much.

Very child friendly recipe!
I made the mash with leeks, not brussels sprouts, and I used much less parsnip.... only because my kids hate it and I'm trying to break them in gently. And they loved it! I didn't add the mustard either (kids!), but served it on the side (and one kid ate it)

This mash was a lovely change to just plain mash and a good way to hide veg from kids.
