Ingredients: Eggs, asparagus, potatoes plus milk, cheese, and herbs for the frittata.
Budget: Eggs are an inexpensive protein so we usually go for the premium farm fresh or pasture-raised kind. They typically range from $.25-.75/egg. Potatoes are budget-friendly all year, and you can swap in different seasonal veggies.
Nutrition: Go for the pasture-raised eggs, and you will be able to see the difference. The yolks are bright orange because of the varied diet that the hens are eating, and this translates into more vitamins and other nutrients for you and your pups. In addition, you’ll get fiber, folate and vitamins A, C, E and K from the asparagus, plus vitamins B, C, iron, calcium and potassium from the potatoes.
Waste Not: The only thing thrown out with this recipe are the egg shells. The chewy asparagus stalks go to the dogs, as do the nutritious potato peels.
