Let's get down to business and make this funky baked radish casserole! I call this a funky casserole because of the vinegar! It adds a little bit of sass and a whole lot of flavor! This is a very easy casserole to convert into a skillet recipe if you wish. Just cook it all in the skillet instead.

Why make this delectable casserole? Here are a couple of selling points that have us coming back to this recipe often as a family.
- Once the ground beef is browned, it only takes about 5 minutes of prep time to put it together.
- My husband loves this recipe (win!)
- Versatile dish! Eat as a side or a main meal!
- Baking in the oven brings out natural flavors and sweetness!
We frequently use this recipe as a meal because it includes protein, a vegetable, and healthy fats. The recipe can also be used as an appetizer or side dish. Especially during the holidays, this would make a great healthy appetizer to bring to a holiday party, and it's even a bit of festive color!
Another great radish idea is these pan-fried radishes that are made in a cast iron skillet!
A quick tip for these baked radishes is to switch up the seasoning! I love the garlic, onion, and dill combination, but it would be easy to switch out some additional seasoning to make a variation of the recipe each time!
Apple cider vinegar
The secret ingredient!
The secret ingredient for this recipe is apple cider vinegar! We make our own here on our homestead, but you can use any sort of store-bought apple cider vinegar as well. It is what adds the 'funky' to the flavor! But don't let it scare you off, it pairs wonderfully with the radishes!
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Brown the beef and drain off any excess fat.
In a bowl combine the mayonnaise, cheese, eggs, vinegar, onion powder, garlic powder, and dill weed.
Alternatively, you can add everything into a cast iron skillet, and bake right in the cast iron skillet.
In a bowl combine the mayonnaise, cheese, eggs, vinegar, onion powder, garlic powder, and dill weed. Mix in the radishes and beef, and make sure to coat everything generously. Place in a 9x13 baking dish or a cast iron skillet.
Bake for 30 minutes.
My favorite way to store leftovers is right in the cast iron skillet or baking dish. The key is to have a skillet or baking dish with a lid. It will store well in the refrigerator for up to one week.
Radishes do not freeze well in this recipe so I do not personally recommend freezing this recipe.
Do radishes taste like potatoes?
In the Trim Healthy community, there is a lot of fun ideas for using radishes in potato recipes. Do radishes taste like potatoes? Some people think so. I'm of the opinion that you can't take an orange and make it into an apple. The same thing can be said of radishes and potatoes. You can't take a radish and make it into a potato!
However, you can enjoy radishes for what they are and replace the potato in a recipe for a lower carb/glycemic option. But to try and make a radish potato...it's just a wee bit ridiculous.
Are baked radishes healthy?
Radishes are an incredibly healthy root vegetable that is lower in carbohydrates, with only about two net carbs, and a very healthy option to pair with meals. Radishes are rich in antioxidants and minerals like potassium and calcium.
