Keto Loaded Radishes – With Bacon and Cheese!
Does a side dish loaded with bacon and cheese sound good?!
If you miss eating high-carb potatoes, you’ve gotta try pan frying some radishes! It’s an easy idea I’ve been obsessed with ever since I made breakfast radishes to put in these yummy bacon and egg burritos.
It’s so interesting how cooked radishes taste nothing like raw radishes, and pan frying them is a fantastic way to go!
In this radish recipe, we are pan frying them in a little bacon grease until tender, then topping them with cheddar cheese, bacon, and chives. I love how the radishes get caramelized and the texture and taste is so delish!
These would be a great accompaniment for anything on the grill, like steak, chicken, or fish.
Hip Recipe Tips:
- I’m using a 10 inch cast iron skillet, and love how it does an excellent job of caramelizing the outsides of the radishes for awesome texture.
- Cook your bacon in the skillet first to make this a simple one-skillet dish! Reserve a tablespoon of the bacon grease in the pan to cook the radishes – because bacon grease is oh so TASTY!
- I’m using freshly grated sharp cheddar cheese because I love how it melts. You could possibly pick another type of cheese if desired, or the pre-shredded.
