Swede (Rutabaga) Breakfast Hash

This is so easy and can be made very quickly in the morning if you have the swede grated in a container in the fridge.


Serves 2


  • Fat of your choice, I use goose or beef dripping
  • Half a swede, grated coursely
  • 1 small red onion, sliced
  • salt

It’s so easy!  I put 1 tablespoon of the fat in a large frying pan and when this is hot add the red onion.  Sauté until slightly browned and then add the swede and a pinch of salt.  Continue to sauté until the vegetables are golden brown and softened.  If you are serving this with bacon you can add the bacon when you add the swede, put it round the edge of the pan with the hash in the middle.

    • Apparently it’s because they were first discovered growing wild in Sweden! I love them as I don’t do so well with starchy veg and they are really cheap over here in the UK.

      • Interesting! That would make complete sense. It’s always nice to enjoy vegetables that aren’t too expensive. ;] I don’t quite have that luxury… My favorites are red bell peppers, and they’re rarely on sale!
