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)

Instructions

  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
  4. Distribute the grated celeriac equally into silicone muffin molds. Crack an egg into each mold. Low-Carb Egg & Celeriac Nests
  5. Reduce the oven temperature to 175 °C/ 350 °F. Season the eggs with salt and pepper and place in the oven for about 20-25 minutes. Low-Carb Egg & Celeriac Nests
  6. Remove from the oven and let the cups cool down before you remove them from the molds. Garnish with fresh parsley and serve with crisped up bacon rashers. The egg cups and bacon can be stored in the fridge for up to 4 days.

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?

Reply

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
