Recipe: Turmeric Spiced Sweet Potatoes and Eggs

Try out this new fun recipe for you and your dog to enjoy!

To me, breakfast isn’t breakfast unless eggs and potatoes are involved, but that tried-and-true combo can get a little old. This recipe spices up your boring brunch plans for you and your dog.

Turmeric is known for its anti-inflammatory qualities. Hailing from Asia, it is part of the ginger family (another dog-friendly and healthy spice). It adds a fragrant and earthy flavor and a beautiful yellow color to any dish. Like any new food, check with your vet before adding to your dog’s diet and test with a small amount to see if he has a sensitivity. But, it is typically safe and healthy for dogs. It’s recommended to feed no more than ¹/₈ to ¼ teaspoon per day for every 10 pounds of weight.

What you’ll need:

  • 1 small sweet potato
  • 3 eggs
  • ½ teaspoon turmeric
  • ¼ teaspoon ginger
  • Coconut oil

Directions:

  1. Thinly slice sweet potato.
  2. On a cookie sheet, lightly coat sweet potato slices in coconut oil.
  3. Sprinkle with ginger and 1/4 teaspoon of turmeric.
  4. Bake at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for 20 minutes or until potatoes are roasted and cooked through.
  5. While your potatoes bake, whisk eggs and add the remaining turmeric.
  6. Cook eggs on a skillet in a little bit of coconut oil, scrambling until cooked through.
  7. Top sweet potato slices with eggs and serve.
