Ingredients:  
2 Tbls unsalted butter
1/2 onion thinly sliced
2 cups heavy cream
1 cup milk
1 Tbls kosher salt, or to taste
1/2 tsp freshly ground white pepper
Freshly grated nutmeg to taste
3 large parsnips, peeled and sliced 1/4 inch thick
7 or 8 large potatoes, peeled and sliced 1/4 inch thick
3 large carrots, peeled and sliced on the bias, 1/4 inch thick

Directions:
Directions:
Preheat oven to 375 degrees

In a 4 quart saucepan, melt half of the butter over medium heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, for about 5 minutes or until the onions are wilted and translucent.

Add the cream and milk, bring to a boil and season with salt, pepper and nutmeg.

Fold the parsnips, potatoes, and carrots into the cream mixture with a rubber spatula until each slice is well coated.

Simmer the vegetables until the cream mixture begins to thicken and the vegetables are almost tender, about 10 - 15minutes. They should not be completely cooked.

Butter a large shallow baking dish. Pour the vegetable mixture into the dish and dot the the top of the vegetables with the remaining butter. The unbaked gratin can be assembled up to this point one day in advance, covered and refrigerated.

Bake in the upper third off of the oven for 20 - 25 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and the vegetables are tender.

Personal Notes:
Parsnips are one of the most underappreciated vegetables. Their subtle sweetness adds an old world depth of flavor to this simple gratin. This dish is a delicious accompaniment for a roast leg of lamb and can be partially cooked and assembled ahead of time.
