These hearty mini-omelettes for dogs are a power-packed combination of protein and healthy greens. They smell so good you’ll be tempted to try one (and it’s okay; they’re really tasty for people too).
Power puffs make an excellent meal topper for your dog. You can also stuff a couple into a KONG or other puzzle toy, or use as a special treat or training reward.
Scrambled Egg Power Puffs for Dogs
Yield 12 mini puffs
- 6 Cups Packed Spinach or Dark Leafy Greens
- 1/2 Cup Bread Crumbs or Panko
- 1/2 Cup Lowfat Cottage Cheese
- 2 Eggs
- Optional But Amazing: 3 Strips of Diced Cooked Bacon
- Mini muffin mold
- Baking sheet
- Optional: food processor
Preheat oven to 400º.
Grease a silicone mini muffin mold and place on a baking sheet.
Roughly chop the greens in batches in the food processor.
Sauté the chopped greens with a little olive oil about 10 minutes. They will shrink dramatically. Do not be alarmed.
Transfer the greens to a mixing bowl, and stir in the cottage cheese and bacon until combined.
Stir in the eggs last.
Drop by generous spoonfuls into the greased mini muffin molds.
Bake 25 minutes or until the puff feels springy to the touch and no liquid remains.
Keep your puffs refrigerated after they cool.

Bea was powered up by these power puffs. She also appreciates fine plating.
A word of caution: too much kale or spinach may be a problem for some dogs, especially those with kidney issues or sensitive tummies. For these dogs, a limited-ingredient treat like our Salmon Swirls would be a better option.
