800g potatoes, cut into cubes
800g parsnips, cut into cubes

2 tbsp wholegrain mustard
2 tbsp clear honey
2 tbsp white wine vine vinegar
85g fresh white breadcrumbs
25g grated cheese
1. Cook the potatoes and parsnips in boiling water, simmer for 5 minutes, gently drain so they don’t rough up too much, then pour into a baking dish.
2. Melt the butter in a big saucepan, then stir in the flour and cook for 2 minutes. Gradually stir in the milk to a smooth, lump free sauce. Cook gently , stirring constantly, until the sauce is nicely thickened, about 5 minutes. Stir in the mustard, honey, vinegar and some seasoning, pour over the potatoes and parsnips, mix the crumbs and cheese together, then scatter over the top , bake for 30 – 40 minutes until the top is crispy and golden.
