North Needs EVOO, Too!

North loves to eat. If I make it, he'll eat it. If I drop it, he'll eat it. If he can smell it and get his little paws on it, he'll eat it. Because I'm always looking for special ways to treat him to a snack, I was super psyched to realize that Every Day With Rachael Ray offers a pet-friendly recipe each month! If you have time, make a tasty breakfast for your pooch . . . and take a nibble yourself!

To whip up this dogilicious Cheesy Zucchini Frittata for Fido,


Cheesy Zucchini Frittata from Every Day With Rachael Ray

1 baking potato, peeled and thinly sliced
2 tbsp. milk
3 eggs, beaten
2 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil (EVOO)
1 small zucchini, chopped
½ cup shredded asiago cheese

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Place the potato in a small bowl with enough water to cover and microwave at high power until tender, about 8 minutes. Drain, add the milk and mash with a fork; let cool. Mix in the eggs.
In a medium, ovenproof skillet, heat the EVOO, 2 turns of the pan, over medium heat. Add the zucchini and cook until tender, about 5 minutes. Add the potato mixture and stir to combine. Bake until set, about 10 minutes. Sprinkle the cheese on top and bake until melted, about 2 minutes more. Let cool, then cut into wedges.

I cannot stand her and I would never let Cuba eat that. He loves his raw.

Dogs should not be eating cheese, I heard its horrible for them.

This is healthier than what 90% of people feed their pets as meals, unfortunately, for people tend to just buy whatever is at the grocery store, pet store, or vet's office. One good thing about dogs v. cats is that dogs have tummies that can handle a lot more junk than cats can. This would probably be a fun treat.

while my sheltie would love this, it's very unhealthy for him. i do spoil him every so often with a piece of my bagel but it's a small piece. too many dogs are overweight these days ... it's recipes like this that only add to the problem. has rachel ray asked any vets if this is healthy to promote?

She includes a recipe in the magazine that you can cook up for your dogs (only pet safe ingredients) – it's not meant to be a meal substitute but should be treated as a special snack with that sized portion given to a pet.

Why would this be considered pet friendly? It looks like a recipe for humans? Am I missing something?
