Eggs for everyone!

Even your fur babies!

You may be wondering why on earth would I make my little man treats when there are thousands of puppy dog goodies on the market already?

Because.

Because I want him to feel loved.  And I’m a firm believer that the way to anyone’s heart is through their stomach.

Because I want to know the food that I’m giving him has a certain element of benefits so I can feel good about spoiling him.  I also want to know that I’m avoiding the crazy chemicals that are widely present in those mass marketed treats in order to keep them on the shelves for a longer period of time.

So I’m starting with eggs.  More specifically, an omelette.

Did you know that not only are eggs a cheap and healthy source of food for your dog, but they are one of the most complete and nutritious meals that you can give them?!  That’s right!  Eggs are considered a complete food source.  That means they are packed full of amino acids – the building blocks of protein, vitamins A and B12, iron, and fatty acids.  I’m hoping you get the drift.  They are just THAT good.

But with this special homemade meal, we’re kicking it up a notch and adding their favorite meat product – chicken, beef, salmon – you know, to give it another protein boost.

And parsley.  Parsley is another ingredient that’s going to give your pooch a little nutritional boost.  Most people view parsley as just a garnish, but it’s actually a good source of flavonoids, antioxidants, and vitamins.  This herb even has a long history with dogs.  Especially when it comes to freshening their breath! So throw a pinch of parsley into your furry one’s omelette to give them a little boost of flavor and you can relish in the fresher-ish breath.

Really.  What’s not to love?


Doggy Breakfast Omelette

serves one

  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 c. cooked chicken, ground beef, or salmon
  • 1/2 tsp. dried parsley

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Coat a small ramekin with olive oil.  Mix all of the ingredients together in a medium mixing bowl and pour into prepared ramekin.

Cook for 20-22 minutes or until eggs are completely cooked through.  Remove from oven, and slide a butter knife around the outside of the omelette to make sure nothing is sticking.  Flip into your dog’s dish and allow to cool before giving it to them.
