Remember the last time you tried to cut out carbs and other sugars? For most people, it’s not so easy to give up sweets, breads, and alcohol, and your dog may be no different when it comes to carbs. While he’s on the mend, treat him to this delicious grain-free snack that’s just a little bit sweet. Serve it as an occasional meal replacement. (It’s not just a breakfast food!) Makes 6 to 10 servings
- 6 free-range eggs, beaten
- 1⁄4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
- 1 teaspoon butter
- 2 slices nitrate-free cooked sliced turkey, torn or chopped
- 1 fresh peach, pitted and finely chopped
- 2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
- Preheat the broiler.
- In a medium bowl, use a fork to combine the eggs and cheese. Set aside.
- In a nonstick, ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat, melt the butter. Add the turkey and peach and cook, stirring frequently, for 2 minutes. Add the basil and stir to combine. Pour the reserved egg mixture into the pan and stir to combine. Cook for 4 minutes, or until the eggs begin to set.
- Carefully place the pan under the broiler and cook for 3 to 4 minutes, or until the frittata is slightly browned and fluffy. Cool before serving
