Turnip-Bacon Quiche

Ever since starting my low-carb journey, I never cease to be amazed at how many fun things you can put into a crustless breakfast quiche and end up with a MUCH tastier result than expected when starting out.  And often much better than my doubting husband, picky eater that he is, likes to admit.   🙂  This morning when I opened up the refrigerator, I saw I had one turnip smiling up at me, right on the front of the shelf, and it seemed to be saying “Eat me, Eat me”.   A visual image of  the talking plant, Audrey, in the campy musical “Little Shop of Horrors” came to mind.  🙂    Thought I’d accommodate the little guy!  🙂  This was very much like a hash brown and bacon quiche!  No turnip taste at all.  It really tasted like potatoes! This recipe is Induction friendly.
