Looking to change up your low-carb breakfast to an old favorite? Try these radish keto hash browns if you miss your morning potatoes!
I needed to change up my standard egg breakfast. Usually, I serve them with a little sausage or bacon.
Sometimes when I bake up a loaf of low-carb bread, I’ll serve my eggs with some buttered toast. But I was missing hash browns so I created some keto-friendly ones from shredded radishes.
Why you'll love it
These radish hash browns are really fast to fry up and they taste like the real deal. Each serving has just 3 grams of net carbs which makes them perfect for a low carb diet.
I didn’t add a lot of cheese to them. But if you love the taste of parmesan, go ahead and add some additional grated cheese on top.
They make great leftovers too that you can take to work during the week. You don’t even need to bother heating them because they taste great cold.
Another great thing about this keto breakfast recipe is that you only need six ingredients! So if you already have radishes, you likely have what you need.
Any type of radishes can be used. I used standard red ones, but daikon is one that has a slightly milder flavor that’s a bit sweeter.
To bind the shredded radishes together, you’ll need some eggs. Otherwise, the shreds won’t hold together.
Tossing in a little parmesan cheese adds a nutty-sweet flavor that’s slightly salty. If you don’t have any, it should be fine to leave it out. You could try adding a smaller amount of coconut flour along with a little liquid like almond milk.
The hash browns are seasoned with garlic powder, onion powder, and salt. That’s really all you need for them to taste great. But feel free to add ground black pepper and other seasoning you like.
Note: The full list of ingredients along with the amounts used are in the recipe card at the end of this post. You can find it easily by scrolling and stopping where the green background is.
- Brown patties well. If you want to have the best flavor and texture, you need to brown up each side well to get the edges crispy.
- Make small patties. You can form your radish mixture into patties first. Then you won’t have to separate them after they cook.
- Try the air fryer. The air fryer is a great way to crisp up the patties easily. Just be sure to lightly oil the basket first so they don’t stick.
It’s so easy to make these keto hash browns! Just follow these easy step-by-step directions.
Red radishes can be difficult to grate manually. I recommend using the grating blade on a food processor because it takes only seconds!
Once you have the radishes grated, just mix in the rest of the ingredients for the radish hash browns. You can combine them right in the food processor or add everything to a medium bowl.
In a lightly oiled large skillet, you can either drop the mixture into the pan in small patties or spread it out. I thought it was easier to just dump the whole mixture into the skillet and spread it out. It filled the whole pan.
If not made in patties, it’s difficult to flip the whole thing at once. Instead, you can flip the hash browns in sections. For the best results, allow each side to turn golden brown so the edges are crispy.
️ Serving suggestions
These low-carb hash browns make a wonderful savory breakfast. But they can be served as a side dish for all your keto meals.
Although they go great with eggs, you can eat them plain. There’s already eggs in them and they are very filling served as a single dish. The eggs hold things together, but they don’t overpower the dish.
Other low-carb potato substitutes would work as well. Riced cauliflower, jicama, turnips, and rutabaga are other great alternatives for keto hashbrowns.
Before getting to the printable recipe, I wanted to share some answers to questions people often ask regarding the recipe.
Any radish can be used to make radish hash browns. You'll just get a slightly different flavor based on which type you use. Daikon is less peppery and a bit more sweet than red ones.
Traditional hash browns are made with potatoes which are not keto-friendly. That's why you'll want to use a potato substitute like radishes instead.
There are a lot of other ways you can enjoy radishes on a keto diet. Here's just a few of my favorites.
- Roasted radishes are the best alternative to roasted potatoes that I've tried.
- Keto chips are just like potato chips but with a lot less carbs.
- Roasted celery root and radishes add in celery root to make faux roasted potatoes a little more interesting.
- Smashed radishes can be served with all your low-carb holiday meals.
- Loaded Fauxtatoes are loaded with extras like bacon and cheese.
