Mini Quiche Zucchini and Bacon Dog Treats Recipe

Hi! My name is Christina Danza, and I’m thrilled to be sharing my Mini Quiche Zucchini and Bacon Dog Treats Recipe with all of you on Pretty Fluffy.

In honour of the start of USA football season, I wanted to create a fun and savoury snack that’s quick to whip up and also perfectly shareable with our canine companions. Here’s the how-to on how to make these delicious mini quiche party poppers.

I love this recipe because eggs are a great source of protein for us as well as our pets. Protein helps build muscle, strengthen hair, and rebuild tissue. The small amount of bacon in each quiche adds a big kick of flavour that your pet won’t be able to resist, making this a treat that you can feel good about sharing.

YOU’LL NEED

3 free-range eggs
Half a zucchini, chopped into small pieces
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
3 strips cooked chopped free-range bacon

INSTRUCTIONS

1. Preheat oven to 350˚F / 176˚C
2. Place a small amount of shredded cheese in the bottom of each muffin cup as a base.
3. In a medium sized mixing bowl, beat the eggs until the colour is consistent.
4. Add the zucchini, remainder of the cheese, and 2/3 of the bacon into the egg and mix until evenly dispersed.
5. Carefully spoon the mixture into the muffin cups. You don’t have to worry about the egg rising out.
6. Bake for 20 minutes, or until the eggs look fluffy and no longer shiny. A dome shape should develop on the top when fully cooked.

Enjoy!

HANDY HINTS

  • Makes 12 mini quiches.
  • Store leftovers in a sealed container in the fridge.
  • For this recipe, I used colourful silicone mini muffin cups to bake the quiches. I like these because they’re the perfect tiny size and because the silicone is a great nonstick surface that doesn’t require coating a baking pan with oil or cooking spray. If you are using a traditional muffin tin, be sure to coat it well to prevent sticking.

HUMAN FRIENDLY!

  • To make this recipe extra yummy for humans, add 1 tablespoon chopped shallot into the mix and 2 leaves of scallion, sliced into thin pieces on top. However it’s important NOT to includes the shallot and the scallion in any quiches you’re making for pets. Although only a small amount is being used, these ingredients can be irritants to animals’ digestive systems. They are, however, delicious for the quiches you’re making for yourself.
  • Serve on a platter at your next party, or position the quiches on an elevated cake stand for a cuter look. Either way, they won’t last long!
