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 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
- 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.
