Root Vegetable Hash Egg Skillet | @naturallyellaWhen we go out for weekend brunch, I usually end up ordering what some may consider the least exciting breakfast: eggs and potatoes. I have a love of all things potatoes which has manifested into a few different potato/egg recipes. For example, this pesto potato skillet and this smoked paprika egg bake to name a couple. However, for root vegetable month, I decided to add an underused ingredient: turnips. The slight bite from the turnips works well with the regular potatoes. Plus, it’s the perfect companion for the dill and tarragon in this root vegetable hash.

While I would typically eat this for breakfast, you could easily turn this into a light dinner for two with a companion side salad. Also, if you’re looking to make this dairy free, simply leave out the feta.

Root Vegetables: Swap out the potatoes and carrots for sweet potatoes and parsnips. The slight sweetness complements the final flavors of the turnip.

Cheese: Change up the cheese and use gorgonzola or blue cheese instead of feta.

Greens: Chopped greens such as collards, kale or even broccoli would be an excellent addition to this root vegetable skillet.
