With a nice presentation, this a great way to take mashed potatoes to a new level. Make them even better by making a blend of mashed potatoes and parsnips. The parsnips are a bit more nutritionally dense and have a much lower glycemic load!



  1. This recipe is perfect for using up left over mashed potatoes. That said, you can make a batch of mash specifically for this recipe. Make the mash with ½ potatoes and ½ parsnips, squash, celeriac or turnip to make this recipe healthier.
  2. Add about 1 tablespoon of butter and season with salt, pepper and nutmeg.
  3. Transfer the warm mash to a piping bag fitted with a star tip if you have one. A round tip will also work. Pipe the mash in a coil shape, building it up to make a “mountain” to your desired size.
  4.  Sprinkle with a little bit of cheese and then bake in the preheated 425° F oven for about 15 minutes until its lightly browned.
  5. Serve and enjoy!


  • Try adding a couple pinches of paprika and ¼ cup of thinly sliced green onions for some nice colour and flavour.
  • Fresh herbs can also be a nice touch. Basil, thyme, oregano or parsley would all work well.
