  • 4 Lbs Potatoes (Yukon Gold)
  • 2 Lbs Parsnips
  • Koser Salt and Fresh Cracked Black Pepper (To Taste)
  • 1 Cup Heavy Cream
  • 1 Cup Sour Cream
  • 1/2 Stick Butter (1/4 cup)
  • 2 Tablespoons Chives (chopped)
  • 1/2lb Pancetta (Diced and Rendered into Lardons)


Pancetta is an Italian cured bacon. You can find it at your local grocery store, generally in their deli department. In Utah, I can find it at Harmon's Grocery Store.

Please note this is not a recipe for people on a low fat diet. 😀


Step 1
Peel and cut your potatoes and parsnips into even sized pieces.
Step 2
Place them in a large dutch oven, cover them with cold water and add a large pinch of salt. Bring the pot to a boil and simmer until the vegetables are fork tender. This should take about 20 - 30 minutes.
Step 3
Meanwhile, in small pot gently heat the cream, sour cream and butter over low heat. When the vegetables are done, drain them well. Place the vegetables back into the pot over medium heat. Gently stir them to remove any additional moisture; ensure they do not burn.
Step 4
While the potatoes and parsnips are still warm, press them through a potato ricer into a bowl. Add the warm cream a little at a time and mix with a wooden spoon until fluffy.
Step 5
Season with salt and pepper and garnish with the chives and pancetta. Serve immediately.
