Since I’ve been on a tear lately writing about how to save money (sudden poverty will do that to you), I thought I’d share some strategies for how to stretch your meat budget.
1. Remember eggs — nature’s most convenient protien. Cheap and easy to digest with a long shelf-life, eggs are incredibly versatile. They can be added to ground meats to stretch the budget (think meatloaf and meatballs). But don’t forget what the French have always known — quiches and omeletts are good for breakfast, lunch, dinner or a reheated snack.
Fritattas are wonderful and when cut into small pieces make an excellent appetizer. French toast made of stale bread soaked in eggs is full of protien and tastes great with maple syrup.
