A big thank to Jackie from our Facebook community for sharing this fantastic and unique recipe for rutabagas from PaleOMG!
1 large rutabaga, peeled
½ yellow onion, thinly sliced
1 garlic clove, minced
3-4 tablespoons bacon fat (or other kind of fat)
2-3 eggs (or more)
salt and pepper, to taste
parsley (to garnish-optional)
Peel your rutabaga. Roughly chop then send the rutabaga through a food processor with the shredding attachment. If you don’t have a food processor, you can use a cheese grater.
Place a medium skillet over medium-high heat and add 1 tablespoon of bacon fat and minced garlic.
In a bowl, mix together rutabaga and sliced onion. Place in skillet, spread out in pan and press down. Sprinkle with a bit of salt and pepper. Cook for 4-5 minutes, then use a spatula to flip the rutabaga.
When the rutabaga is almost done cooking, use a spoon to make a spot in the middle of the shredded rutabaga to crack your egg into. A nice little nesting area for the egg.
Crack your egg into the middle of the rutabaga. To cook your egg perfectly, grab a lid and pour in just a tablespoon of water into the pan and cover. Let cook for a minute or two until egg is cooked to your preference.
I did this in 4 batches with all the rutabaga I shredded.
Top with a bit of parsley.
It’s like you’re eating naughty hash browns. Genius.
