Ingredients (makes 3 servings, 6 egg nests)

  • 6 large eggs
  • 2 cups grated celeriac or turnip (180 g/ 6.3 oz)
  • freshly ground black pepper or cayenne pepper
  • sea salt to taste
  • fresh parsley for garnish
  • 6 thinly-cut bacon slices (150 g/ 5.3 oz)


  1. Preheat the oven to 190 °C/ 375 °F (fan assisted), or 210 °C/ 410 °F (conventional). Place the bacon rashers on a rack and bake for about 15-20 minutes until golden. If you want to save time, make crispy bacon in advance.
  2. Let it cool down on a rack and keep in an air-tight container in the fridge for up to one week. (Don't throw the bacon grease away - place it in a small glass jar and reserve for future uses. It's great for frying eggs!) Low-Carb Egg & Celeriac Nests
  3. Peel and grate the celeriac. Low-Carb Egg & Celeriac Nests

I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.

Where do you get celeriac when it is out of season? Or use instead of it?

You could use ground rutabaga or turnip instead. I get mine from Tesco when it's not in season (UK).

I have to admit, I wasn't expecting wonders from this - I just had some celeriac to use up and was pleased to find a breakfast that wasn't too high in protein, as my main problem with my macros is trying to keep my protein down to acceptable levels.
But it's YUMMY!  I shall definitely be making this again (after I've scoffed the remaining two helpings)! :-D

Thank you Anna!!

Nice, simple, paleo-friendly snack! I will try it with sweet potatoes.

Thank you! 😊
