Agree with the comment below, lovely winter comfort food with sticky onion gravy! I served with grilled pork chops.

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.
