Looking to change up your breakfast to an old favorite? Try these low carb radish hash browns if you miss your morning potatoes!
Looking back at 2015, I made way too many low carb sweets. There really isn’t any need for sweets in a healthy diet and I’d like to cut back on them. My plan for 2016 is to come up with more yummy savory dishes so I can ditch some of the sweet treats.
I’m not ready to get rid of sweets completely, but my sweet tooth has diminished significantly. Sugary stuff doesn’t really appeal to me much any more, but it is nice to indulge in a sweet treat every once in a while.
Even when I do make sweet desserts and snacks, I’ve been decreasing the sweetener. One thing that I doubt I could ever give up is chocolate.

But, I’ve always preferred the bittersweet variety with high cocoa content which isn’t very sweet. Chocolate has some health benefits, too, so I’m keeping it.
These low carb radish hash browns make a wonderful savory breakfast. I’d also eat them for lunch and dinner.
The inspiration for the recipe came from a Low Carb Friends post. The recipe uses a pound of radishes as I usually find them sold in 1 pound bags. I used red radishes, but the white ones are great too.
The red radishes I used were small so it would have been difficult to grate manually. The food processor grated them in only seconds!
Once the radishes were grated, the ingredients for the low carb radish hash browns are combined in a medium bowl. So, if you have a food processor, it only takes a minute or two to prepare the mix.
You could drop the mixture into the prepared pan in smaller patties, but I thought it was easier to just dump the whole mix into the skillet and spread it out. It filled the whole pan.
It’s difficult to flip the whole thing at once, so I flipped the radish hash browns in sections. They tastes best when browned well on each side.
You could serve these low carb radish hash browns with eggs if you’d like. I ate them plain. There’s already eggs in it and by itself, it was very filling. The eggs hold things together, but they don’t overpower the dish.
I’m sure other low carb potato substitutes would probably work as well. I may try grated cauliflower next time. Jicama should also work, but I haven’t found it yet in any of my local stores. I’m told that one of the stores carries it, but they don’t always put it out.
These radish hash browns were a nice change from the standard low carb egg breakfast. And, they are really fast to fry up. I purposely cut back on the cheese and I tend to go overboard, but some additional grated cheese on top would certainly be a nice addition.
I made these on a Sunday and had a few leftovers to take into work during the week. I didn’t even bother heating them up in the microwave at work. I enjoyed them right out of my cooler bag. And, they kept me full until lunch. What’s your favorite low carb breakfast food?
