Red face "Homefries"

"HomeFries"

16 ounce bag radishes, washed, dried and trimmed (prewashed packaged radishes are okay)
1 small onion, diced (2.5 ounces)
2 tablespoons butter
1 tbs canola oil, or olive oil
Salt and pepper, to taste

Quarter the smaller radishes and cut any larger ones into eighths. Heat the butter and oil in a medium skillet; add the radishes and onions. Cover pan and turn heat to low. Let cook for 5-10 minutes. Uncover, turn heat to medium and cook until nicely browned, stirring occasionally. Season with salt and pepper.

Makes 4 servings

From original poster: If you can get past the pink color, these taste amazingly like fried potatoes. The covered cooking helps to soften them a bit before the browning stage. I covered mine for 5 minutes and they still had a little crunch so 10 minutes might be better. Although they tasted a lot like potatoes, there seemed to be something missing so I think the addition of a couple slices of bacon might add just the right flavor. If you use bacon, brown it a bit before adding the onion and radishes, and omit the butter and oil

You can tell from my name that the hardest part of SBD is giving up my potatoes, but this is a pretty good substitute... the texture is similar. I usually can't stand raw radishes, so I was skeptical, but these weren't bad. I'll make some again tomorrow!

When on Atkins DH and I made a hash brown with Daikon Radish - it's a big radish, looks like a big root. We liked it ok, but it wasn't taters! Can we have the Daikon radish on this plan?

i like to add some bacon while making this. it adds a bit of flavour that makes it more like a hash.

good though. i'll make it again.

WOW - I am so amazed ... This was DELICIOUS!!! Really tastes like hashbrowns. You have to let them saute until they look crispy and browned (I almost gave up before they were done) I ended up keeping them cooking for over 40 minutes ... My husband (definately NOT a dieter) actually asked for seconds!!! Thanks for the recipe... It's a KEEPER!!!

I hate the taste of raw radishes. Does this taste anything like a radish? If not I'll try it.

Pear - it doesn't taste like radishes....if you can get past the pink color. Be careful with the salt though...the first time I put too much on.

I cooked this without butter and added some season salt and it was delicious. I cook it with enovo. I might try it today with some spray pam olive oil instead..... will let you know how it turns out.

Okay, I cooked it with pam olive oil in the same pan that I had cooked my turkey bacon it, I added some onion salt (out of onions!) and it is delicious!
