Home Fried Radishes with Bacon

Home Fried Radishes with Bacon are my favorite way to prepare radishes – they are so good. Sort of like smothered onions and potatoes but low carb!

Maybe it’s the southern girl in me, but frying my radishes in bacon grease with onion is my favorite way to prepare them. I mean, I do love me some smothered onions and potatoes. So, giving radishes the same treatment just seemed to make sense to me.

I tried it out many, many moons ago and it still ranks as my top favorite way to eat a radish.

Keto is real big right now, so if you are watching your carbs – this is a great recipe to have up your sleeve. This is also Whole30 friendly if you use a compliant no-sugar bacon.

What ingredients do you need to make Home Fried Radishes with bacon?

You can find the full recipe to print (or screenshot) at the bottom of this post along with an instructional video from me! 🙂

Here’s what you need. It’s only 3 ingredients, plus salt and pepper!

  • 16oz of radishes, root ends trimmed & the radish diced into small pieces
  • diced onion (red or yellow – about 1/2 cup or to taste)
  • bacon (6 slices)
  • salt and pepper to taste

You can also add a sprinkle of cayenne pepper to it if you want a little spice on your radishes. It’s super good.

How do I make them?

Simple as can be, y’all.

Fry the bacon in a skillet until crisp, then remove it from the skillet to drain on a paper towel lined plate. Add the diced radishes to the hot bacon grease in the skillet, and toss to coat in the grease. Fry on medium high heat for 10 minutes. Next, add your diced onion. Season with salt and pepper and reduce the heat to medium. You can also season it to taste with some cayenne pepper if you are wanting some spice. Cook for another 10 minutes. Crush the bacon that you fried previously and stir it in. Remove the home fried radishes from the skillet and drain on a paper towel lined plate. Serve immediately.
