Ingredients

2 1/4 lb
parsnips, cut into chunks
2 1/4 lb
potatoes, cut into chunks
salt and pepper to taste
1 lb
sausages of your choice
1/4 c
bacon fat or butter
3 Tbsp
hot milk (optional)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Cook the parsnips and potatoes separately in boiling salted water until they are tender. Drain and mash; mix together with salt and pepper.
2
Cook the sausage in a small amount of the bacon fat or butter in a large skillet over medium heat until browned, crisp, and cooked through. Set aside and keep warm.
3
Pour the fat from the sausages into a saucepan. Add the remaining bacon fat or butter and let it melt. Stir in the potatoes and parsnips and beat until creamy, over medium heat, adding hot milk to make a lighter consistency, if you prefer.
4
Spoon the mashed vegetables onto a serving plate and top with the sausages.
