Keep Your Dog Healthy With These 3 Breakfast Treat Recipes

by Rosie Harvey

You can easily create healthy, helpful cuisine for you dog in your own kitchen. Here are 3 breakfast treat recipes for you to try.

Breakfast Treat One, Oinkers and Omelettes


3 eggs, 8 mini turkey sausages, 1 package refrigerated crescent rolls.

Preparation & Cooking

Unroll the crescent dough and separate into 8 rectangles on a greased cookie sheet. Cook eggs for 3 minutes in microwave safe bowl, stirring each minute. When eggs are done, scoop small spoonfuls into the centre of each crescent rectangle. Top with a turkey sausage. Fold remaining crescent dough over eggs and sausage to make neat package, OR bundle excess dough and flare edges to create small sacks of goodies. Bake according to crescent roll instructions and allow to cool thoroughly.

Store extras in the refrigerator until your pup is ready to eat them (but don?t ask him, he?ll always be ready to eat them).

The crescent rolls in these snacks package the eggs and sausage in a small, easy-to-handle treat. These are so neat and tidy you can zip them in a baggie and take them to the dog park for a protein burst.
