Turnip hash browns are a great low carb & keto breakfast potato substitute. Crispy and tasty they are a great keto hash browns for breakfast or brunch.

I used thyme to flavour these turnip hash browns but you could use the herbs or spices of your choice. Thyme or paprika would be a great alternative. Or simply cook them plain and add a low carb sauce. When I played around with this recipe I tried the turnip mixture plain, then added different herbs until I found a low carb hash brown that suited my palate.

How to Make Turnip Hash Browns

You can cook these turnip hash browns in small batches but will need a steady hand with the spatula to shape them. The egg helps to bind them and although you could cook these without the egg you will find it difficult to cook these turnip hash browns without a binder. They will fall apart and you will be left with a pan full of cooked grated turnips. However, they are just as tasty if you are not bothered about a hash brown shape. Crispy grated turnips as a side breakfast recipe works!

The key to great turnip hash browns is to cook them thoroughly. The crispier the better. They become a more acceptable keto breakfast potato in flavour the more crispier they are! Do not be afraid of salting them. By themselves, turnips have a sharp bland taste and the trick to great turnip recipes is in the seasoning. Season like you have never seasoned before!

Serve these turnip hash browns with a slice of cottage cheese bake for a hearty low carb breakfast.

    I made these today and they came out great! I cooked them a little longer than you did so I could have nice crispy edges and tagged you on IG. I also shared the recipe with my keto group. Thank you for a version of hash browns for those who cannot eat cauliflower! Thank you!
