Red Radish Cottage Fries

Red Radish Cottage FriesI’ve been making hash browns with onion and bacon grease pretty much all my life.  My Southern roots grow deep.  When I learned (making Chinese stir-fries) that radishes taste totally different when cooked (not bitter as when raw), I had a light bulb go off.  Daddy’s hash browns!! They’re GREAT for breakfast with your eggs and bacon; GREAT as a potato side at dinner!

You will just be amazed how close to red potatoes red radishes taste like when fried this way.  For me, the key here is the onion and bacon grease.  Just not as good done in olive oil.  :)  Do try this some time if you haven’t yet.  The carb count is astounding compared to real potatoes!  This recipe is suitable for All phases of Atkins, Keto diets and Primal-Paleo as well.

15 medium radishes, cut in large pieces

2 oz. yellow onion, sliced

2 T. bacon grease

Dash each salt and coarse black pepper

DIRECTIONS:  Heat skillet over medium-high heat.  Add bacon grease.  Toss in the onion and saute until it begins to get soft and brown/caramelize on the edges.  Add radishes, salt and pepper and continue stir-frying until radishes are no longer opaque.  You want them to just begin browning so the skins will stay a pretty reddish color. 🙂
