These were in the oven for 50mins and they were still not cooked through. Don't bother!

Delicious! Cooked through and crunchy on the outside. 35 mins was perfect time. A hit with the family will defo cook again!

Boiled the night before so I could just pop it into a hot oven with the Parmesan etc beside the main dish. Still had a touch too much crunch even though I thought it was cooked enough. Didn't love but would try again. With this method, the Parmesan needed more time to get crispy and brown, and possibly I used too much oil.

Does anyone know if these could be eaten cold or they go horrid like potato wedges do? Thinking of picnic food

I found this a bit disapointing, by the time the swede is cooked the parmesan has burnt....

As per the picture I cut my swede into chunky chips - and after 45-50 mins they were still crunchy in the middle. Will try again with much thinner chip sizes as tasty flavour and great alternative to potatoes. Also, I tossed in oil and cheese before transferring to roasting dish, to cut down on the wastage and burning. Tray still had fair amount of burnt cheese on it, but to be expected. Will add more garlic cloves next time too as we love roast garlic. Will try again!

The suede turned out lovely. It reminded my husband of his childhood. :) I topped the suede with the parmesan instead of tossing them in the parmesan. That way you use less and there is no waste.
