And not to be forgotten….



What compendium on eggs would be complete without a little sumpin-sumpin specifically for our canine furbeasts? An occasional cooked egg is an excellent treat for dogs, providing a hit of protein along with lots of other great nutrients. A whole egg can be beneficial for dogs with digestive issues and, based on my observations, can help a hyper¬†Fido settle down in the evening. For my dog, an egg now and again in the evening is a proven chill pill. Here’s what you do:

Take one egg. Crack it into a small microwaveable bowl that has been sprayed with cooking spray. Add 2 tablespoons of water. (Add nothing else–no salt, no butter, nothing else.)

With a fork or small whisk beat the egg and water until very well blended, meaning there are no visible streaks of egg white, and the egg mixture is uniformly yellow and frothy. Cover the bowl loosely with a paper towel. (NOTE-eggs have a tendency to explode in the microwave, creating one hell of a mess inside your oven. Beating the eggs and water very thoroughly will help reduce the possibility of explosion, and the paper towel on top of the bowl will contain the egg explosion to the bowl if it does occur.)

Microwave on high for exactly 1 minute and 15 seconds. Remove from microwave; let cool before feeding it to your very grateful four-legged friend. (According to numerous internet sources, your feline furbeast will also welcome an occasional bite of cooked egg.)
