Here’s what you’ll need

All about the protein here! Eggs have healthy fats in the yolks and I go with a low fat cottage cheese to balance things out.

  • Eggs: Eggs are one of the cheapest complete proteins there are, making them economical and tasty. Dogs can eat eggs AND egg shells!
  • Baby SpinachDog-friendly spinach is such an easy way to get iron into their diet.

How to make omelettes for dogs

Omelettes are so easy to make, they’re the perfect treat for your pup! The key really is having a great nonstick skillet. If you’ve ever been frustrated by your eggs sticking to the pan, look into getting a new one (I love my GreenPans!). A good pan will make this recipe will be the easiest part of your day.

Step 1: Beat Eggs
Crack your eggs into a small bowl and add milk. Whisk it good! The egg yolks and whites should be completely mixed together to make the best, most fluffy omelette.

Step 2: Wilt Spinach
Add olive oil to the skillet and then handfuls of spinach. Cook until spinach wilts down. It’ll only take about a minute! Once wilted, distribute spinach evenly around the bottom of the pan.

Step 3: Add Egg
Allow the bottom of the eggs to slightly set, 2 to 3 minutes. With a spatula, gently push an edge of the egg up while tilting the pan to allow the liquidy egg on top to flow underneath. Repeat this around the edge of the pan until no liquid is left.

Step 4: Fold
Spoon cottage cheese onto one side of the omelette, allowing it to warm up slightly. Fold the omelette in half or into thirds. Season with salt and pepper, and serve immediately.
