Beef Boulettes with Turnip Hash Browns and a sunny side up egg

This morning I woke up and decided to make a nice, Sunday breakfast. Since I haven’t had turnips in awhile, I thought of making turnip hash browns with a fried egg. Here in Belgium, we have different cuts of meats available in the supermarket so Ta-Da..boulettes! These ones are ground beef. Turnips are slightly sweet so the mix of sweet and salty was a nice pairing.


  • 1 shredded turnip
  • 1/4 tsp paprika
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 6 leaves of basil
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1/2 tsp Curcuma (Turmeric)
  • 1 egg
  • Beef boulettes (or some other meat of your choice)
  • Coconut oil
  • Green onions
  • Roasted red pepper sauce Get that recipe here


Step 1: Before cooking the shredded turnips, you have to drain the liquid. Place the turnip “mash” into a clean towel and squeeze the water out.

Step 2: Add the basil, paprika, black pepper, and salt to the turnip “mash.”

Step 3: Heat the coconut oil in skillet over medium-high heat.

Step 4: Make a ball of turnip mash and place it in the hot skillet. Use a spatula to flatten out the hash brown. Let them cook for about 5 minutes and then flip. Let them get brown and crispy, but watch closely so they don’t burn.

Step 4: In a separate pan, cook the boulettes. I sprinkled some black pepper and turmeric over them. Stirring occasionally so all sides are cooked.

Step 5: Crack an egg into a hot pan and sprinkle with black pepper and a tiny pinch of sea salt.

Serve everything on a plate and sprinkled green onions on top and add a tablespoon of roasted red pepper sauce on top of the hash brown. Enjoy!

You could also make a batch of turnip hash browns ahead of time, by placing them on parchment paper and put them in the freezer. When frozen, you can add them to a large plastic bag for quick access.
