  1. Cut 1 1/2 turnips into small chunks.
  2. In a small saucepan, bring two cups of water up to a boil with the turnips. Cook for 10 minutes or until turnips are fork tender.
  3. While turnips are boiling, shred other 1 1/2 turnips with a cheese grater. With a dish rag, squeeze out any excess liquid of the shredded turnips.
  4. Once boiled turnips are finished cooking, drain and add 2 tablespoons coconut milk. Blend until smooth with an immersion blender.
  5. Mix in shredded turnips, remaining coconut milk, egg, arrowroot, salt and pepper.
  6. In a flat bottom skillet, crisp 4 slices of bacon over medium heat.
  7. Once bacon is done, dice two slices and add to boxty batter.
  8. Reserve a little of the bacon fat from the skillet in a small bowl.
  9. With the remaining bacon fat, scoop 1/4 cup boxty batter onto hot skillet. You don't want the pancakes to be too big or they won't flip
  10. Cook for 7-10 minutes until patty is brown. Flip and cook for another 5-7 minutes.
  11. Add more bacon fat as needed and continue the process of frying the pancakes. Makes 10 small pancakes.
  12. Cook bangers for 7-10 minutes per side, covered. In banger fat, fry up eggs to your liking.
