Cube the potatoes and parsnips to approximately the same size for even cooking. The parsnips can be a bit challenging due to their shape.
Add cold water to a large pot and add both the cubed potatoes and parsnips.
Cover and bring to a boil. Once the water starts to boil, remove the lid, add salt and cook until fork tender, 10 to 15 minutes.
Place the cooked potatoes and parsnips into a large mixing bowl. Using a mixer, blend until fairly smooth. Scrape down the bowl multiple times to ensure everything is blended.
Add the salt and butter blending with the potatoes.
Blend in the milk.
At this point, take a taste test to see if you need to add more salt or other ingredients.
Spoon the prepared potatoes into a large casserole or two small casseroles. Cover with aluminum foil and place in a 350 degree oven. Bake for 15-minutes to ensure they are heated through. This step can be skipped if the potatoes are being served immediately. Just be sure to keep them warm since mashed potatoes tend to cool down quickly!

Two days before serving, peel and cube the potatoes. Place in cold water, cover with clear plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator.
The next day, drain and rinse the potatoes to remove any starch. Follow the above directions except for baking. Cover the casserole with foil placing in the refrigerator.
When ready to serve the casserole, remove from the refrigerator while the oven is preheating. Bake until desired temperature and then top with chives! If oven space is a premium, the microwave is a great option!
