Keto Bacon Radish Hash Recipe
Breakfast is easily one of my favorite meals of the day – definitely in the top three of four. Joking aside, I do love to get up and make myself a nice breakfast each morning. Unfortunately, when I go out for brunch with friends, my options tend to be limited as potatoes and bread seem to be a breakfast staple in every restaurant across the country.
One of the things I always catch myself drooling over is breakfast hash. The mixture of fried potatoes, bacon, and all sorts of other goodies always makes me want to try. So, I knew there had to be a Keto alternative that would be just as good, if not better. The answer to replacing the carb-heavy potatoes came in the form of a radish, daikon radishes. And, the Keto radish hash recipe was born – I totally love how the name rolls off of the tongue “radish hash”.
Wait, Radishes and Bacon?
Yeah, I know, it sounds a little off. But, I am not talking about the radishes that can completely overpower a salad if you use too many. I am talking about daikon radishes. They are a much more subtle flavor, come in a larger size, and are quite versatile in the kitchen.
You may be surprised what these radishes can do. Daikons are used all over the world, but mostly in Asian cuisines. They love daikon in the east and will use it in many dishes. They even make daikon cakes!
The Trick To Making A Great Hash
There is nothing worse than a hash that comes out soggy and unappetizing. The trick to making hash is using a large enough pan that you can spread the hash out evenly so that it can all get crispy, instead of having to constantly mix it up.
A high heat is also important to help make that crispy outside. Allow the color to come out before you start cooking the other side of the hash. And, make sure you have the desired texture before you start breaking it all up.
