A traditional Swiss farmers dish for breakfast, this crispy potato and vegetable-laden recipe is great any time of day and needs no other accompaniment. But if you want to classically enjoy it, add fried or poached eggs on top.


  • 3/4 cup turnip or parsnips, shredded
  • 1 large carrot, peeled and shredded
  • 1/4 cup cooked, French-style green beans
  • 1/4 cup minced onion

  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 2 tablespoons pure olive oil


  • 1 In a large bowl, combine first 9 ingredients well; set aside.
  • 2 Heat oil in a 10-inch skillet over medium-high. When oil is shimmering, add the turnip mixture, spreading it out evenly.
