Turnip Bacon Hash

Recipe inspired by: AmyMyers.com

Course Breakfast
Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes
Servings 4

Ingredients

  • 1 lb bacon, chopped (preferably organic or pastured, no added sugar)
  • 2 large turnips, grated
  • 1 small zucchini, grated
  • 1/2 cup red onion, chopped
  • 1/8 tsp garlic powder
  • salt & pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. Preheat a skillet over medium-high heat and cook chopped bacon until crispy. Strain the bacon with a slotted spoon and set aside, leaving only a thin layer of grease in the pan.

  2. Place the shredded turnips and zucchini into a large colander or strainer and press down firmly with your hands, forcing out the excess liquid.

  3. Reduce pan heat to medium and add the chopped onion. Once the onion is translucent, add the grated turnips and zucchini to the pan. Stir the mixture.

  4. Allow the mixture to cook on medium, and stir occasionally to prevent burning. After about 10-15 minutes the turnips and zucchini will have browned and become crispy.

  5. Season with salt, pepper, and garlic powder, add the cooked bacon back to the pan, and give a final stir before serving.

Tip of the Day

Gluten is a protein that is found in the grains wheat, rye, and barley. People living with celiac disease cannot eat gluten at all, even in the tiniest amounts, as it destroys their intestinal wall. This damage can prevent people from absorbing nutrients into their bodies. Other people may have non-celiac gluten sensitivity in which the body responds poorly to gluten. This can lead to gaps in the intestinal lining that allow larger food molecules and organisms like bacteria to leak into the bloodstream. Keep in mind a gluten-free diet is not necessarily a “weight loss” or “healthy” diet but can be therapeutic if indicated. There are many ways to test for celiac and gluten sensitivities; talk with Sally today for more information.
