I *love* butternut squash. There are many forms of low carb diet, and several accept butternut squash completely. However, it weighs in at 13g net carbs for a cup of cubed squash – and that adds up pretty fast if you want to make a hash. Much lower than potato, for sure, which is double the amount of carbohydrates. But it's too high for me. The solution? Mix it with something that has a lower carb count, but similar texture. TURNIP. Yes, it's not trendy, or even all that commonly used. But it IS available in most stores and at 5.7g net carbs per cup of cubed – it's way better!

I've paired this hash with bacon and a fried egg. Because, well, actually, do I have to explain why? It's really very good, and I'll leave it at that.

Remove the bacon with a slotted spoon and set aside, leaving the grease. Add the cubed turnip and butternut squash to the pan and cook until tender – around 20 minutes. The flavors of the bacon fat will soak into the vegetables making them extra delicious.
