Parsnip and Carrot “Hash Browns”

This is a recipe I haven’t made in a while but I think I ought to at the next opportunity.  This has made its appearance alongside Thanksgiving Dinner as well as any other meal that I feel like making them with.  I made these for a church pastor who I didn’t realize hated parsnips and he loved them prepared the way I am going to outline in this recipe.

Finish Them
  1. In a heavy skillet (I use cast iron for this) melt one stick of butter and t tbsp of olive oil over medium heat.
  2. Raise heat to medium high and add root vegetables and brown on one side. Press down to cause the root vegetables to make a single "patty."
