Pan Fried & Fully Loaded Radishes

You will never look at a radish the same after trying this. This recipe is my go to comfort food and it definitely feels like an indulgence. The way the hot radishes absorb the flavor from the bacon drippings is unreal and adding the cheese, sour cream, hot sauce, bacon & green onion makes it feel like a food sin!


Here’s what you’ll need:


  • DSC_0440Radishes, quartered (170g)
  • Bacon, 2 slices
  • 2 tbsp sour cream
  • 28g shredded cheddar
  • green onion, desired amount
  • hot sauce
  • seasoning to taste

I made a double batch, cooking for two people. This recipe is easily scaled to fit into your macros and can definitely be cut in half.

I used thick cut bacon but any type of bacon will work, that’s just what I had in my fridge.

You can adjust the toppings to whatever you prefer (this is just my favorite flavor combo.).

Put your quartered radishes into a pot to boil for approximately 5-10 minutes depending on how soft you want your radishes. At the same time get your bacon frying, it’s time to multitask.

Isn’t it beautiful!

 Once the bacon is finished set it aside on a paper towel to cool, you are going to fry the radishes in the leftover bacon grease.

Drain your radishes and try to remove as much water as possible! Your’e going to be adding these babies into hot grease, when water is added to grease it likes to pop.

I’ve gotten grease burns from being lazy before and they are not fun.

Carefully add your radishes to the already hot pan. Season to taste, you can go as simple as salt and pepper or get adventurous with some cajun spices (these are really good with a little kick to them).

Let them cook for about 7-15 minutes, stirring occasionally. The cook time really depends on your preference (the longer they cook the more they absorb the flavor from the bacon drippings).

Plate and add whatever toppings you want! My favorite way to enjoy these fried radishes is to set them on a bed of cheddar (the heat from the fresh cooked radishes helps melt the cheese) and top it with sour cream, hot sauce, green onion & the bacon you cooked at the beginning.

The balance of the hot sauce, sour cream and green onion with the warm radishes is just beyond delicious (these little purple wonders really do well in bacon grease.).

I enjoyed my radishes with a turkey burger!
