My mom and I are really tight! I’m a real mommy’s girl, and she is crazy about me. We love doing so many different things together. One of our favorite hobbies is making food – a self rewarding behavior for us both! There is no better way to bond with your human than partaking in fun activities together! The two of us often search for fun new cooking and baking ideas together online.

Their website contains wonderful content on subjects such as pet lifestyle, pet recipes, pets of celebrities, pet tips, pet travel and adventure and so much more! While sniffing around for an article to inspire my post, I came across How to Bake a DIY Doggie Cake by Cara Wengen. It was obvious to me I needed to share one of my tasty recipes! Everyone loves it when Chef Emma is in the kitchen!
The ingredients for a Veggie Quiche!
My recipes are always real simple! To make this recipe for 6 individual quiches, you need 4 eggs, shredded Parmesan cheese, fresh veggies, 3/4 cup whole wheat flour, 1/2 cup oatmeal, and 1/4 cup water. You will also need muffin tins, wax paper, and no stick spray.
Start with the pie crust!
First of all you will need to make the pie crust. Combine the flour and oatmeal in a small mixing bowl. Slowly add the water until the dough forms a firm ball. Spray two sheets of wax paper with no stick spray, and roll out the dough to about 1/8 inch thick between the wax paper. Remove the top wax paper, and cut out circles about 4 inches in diameter in the crust dough. Place the circles in your greased muffin tins to form a pie crust for each quiche.
Prepare the veggies!
I chose broccoli, carrots, and green beans for my quiche, but you can use any veggies you want, and as many as you like! Simply dice the raw veggies up into small pieces, 1/4″ x 1/4″ or so in size. This is the part of the recipe where the pet parent needs to help out as knives are dangerous for dogs. My photographer/Mom is always willing to help me out when I need it! We make a great team!
Next, place some of each of the chopped veggies into the pie crusts, and top with a paw pinch of shredded Parmesan cheese.
Veggie Quiche is ready for the oven!
Scramble the eggs together in a small bowl. I used a mixing cup I can pour out of. Pour the eggs into the shells right over the veggies. Now the quiches are ready to bake! Put the pan in the pre-heated 325° oven for about 30 minutes until the eggs are firm.
The finished product!
Remove the quiches from the oven and the pan. Let them cool before serving to your dog. Trust me, waiting is the hardest part!
My mom finds this amusing as I don’t like veggies, but I ate up every bite of my veggie quiche! It’s a good way to get your dog some veggies! Bailie and Madison loved their quiche too!

Delicious! I don’t like veggies either but I love eggs so maybe… Also Emma mom loves to find typos… there is a funny one in your post and she said I just had to tell you. “roll out the dog to 1/8 inch”. We think you meant dough! Have a great day! your doodle friend Dash
Ha, LOL! Good catch! Sometimes the eye just doesn’t pick up on things, but it makes for a good laugh!
Sparkle the PBGV says
Those look really yummy. I am not a fan of veggies either in fact, just last week I spit out carrots that had cooked in mom’s beef stew. I mean I sucked all the good gravy of of them, but then I got to the carrots and …BLEE! I bet your mom spent more time on her foot than she should have. XOXO, Sparkle
She says that for her, she is resting it a lot, but she can’t stay seated for long. The swelling is almost gone, so that says something about what she is doing. She is also pretty creative, like putting her boot on the counter while she is cooking. It takes some balance, but works.
Sand Spring Chesapeakes says
Wowzers I would eat those!
They are super yummy!
Oh my delicious. These two would be all over that.
Still can’t believe I ate the veggies as I always spit them out, but not in this recipe.
M. K. Clinton says
I am the luckiest fella in the world to have such a pawsome cook for my girlfriend. Mom says she will make these for us as a Valentine’s gift. YES!!!
P.S. You look precious in your chef’s hat. ♥
Yay for you! The crust is the hardest part, but it is all real simple, so tasty, and pretty healthy too.
oh oui oui oui we love quiches…. and yours look magnifique…tres tres bon!!!
I think quiche is French…maybe that is what I like about it so much?
Jan K says
Luke was drooling when he heard veggie quiche! Cricket is a little more skeptical but I think the eggs and cheese will make up for the veggies. We pinned this one to try later!
If it gets my sisters and me to eat veggies, it should work for any dog. None of us are keen on veggies normally.
The Army of Four says
Oh, those look so TASTY! You’re an amazing chef, Emma! Mags and I love veggies AND eggs — but we’ve never had a quiche! Oh, how I hope our mom will make these with us!
Your Mom should give it a try. Its an easy recipe and you would love them.
Those look delicious!!!
Oh..sorry, we went away to visit Paw Culture and almost forgot to come back…what a wonderful place to visit, they have SOOO much great info!!

PeeEss..Good job keeping your Mama busy!
Isn’t it a fun site! We knew right away we wanted to be with this campaign!
We make a veggie quiche too that we love. Same inner ingredients, we like zucchini, yellow squash and carrots, but we make it in a pie plate and just put plain oatmeal as the crust. So easy!! Everything else is the same except we add a little milk for extra liquid. I like your recipe for the size though!
We contemplated making one big quiche, but it is much easier to make small ones for each of us. Glad we are not the only ones who know how much dogs love quiche!
I wonder if the plain oats crust will work for the small ones? I guess I’ll have to try it! I like leaving out a step!!
I don’t know. I’ve never made a crust without the flour. Seems to me the flour may be the binding agent, but you can give it a try, or maybe grind up the oats?
The plain oats work great on the full pie plate size (1 cup oats on bottom of buttered plate, veggies on top then milk and eggs) and it makes a great crust. I guess I’ll just have to try it! Thanks for this great article.
Frankie and Ernie says
WE are about to FAINT over these. We love it when our mom makes Spinach Quiche fur THEIR Supper… beclaws she always shares some of the Filling with US…
Actually, the first time I counter surfed, it was for quiche! It is great stuff, and it masks the veggies enough that I will actually eat them!
Genevieve Petrillo says
That does sound simple and yummy! Great job, E.
Love and licks,
Easy, quick, and tasty. What more can a dog chef ask for?
Cathy Armato says
Chef Emma, you have done it again, you’ve created another masterpiece! I love veggie quiche! Me & the dogs would love this recipe. Adding it to my repertoire. I love all the inspirational stories on Pawculture, it’s a great resource!
Love & biscuits,
Dogs Luv Us and We Luv Them
PawCulture is a super fun site to go to for pet parents! The quiche is super tasty, your pups would love it!
Kinley Westie says
Looks yummy! I like to hang out wif my momma while she cooks too.
I hang out with her, she hangs out with me, we are both lovers of cooking.
We love your cooking days and that quiche looks pretty darn good to me!
I think kitties would like it too because my kitties like eggs.
Those look delicious! I hope you shared one with your mom!
My mom isn’t a big veggie fan either, so she passed and let my sisters and I have these. She likes something with maybe two veggies and some bacon or ham.
Christmas the Dachshund says
You nailed it!
I don’t like veggies either, unless they’re hidden in something tasty – and that does look tasty!
My biped wants to know if humans are allowed a share as she thinks she’d like those.
Everything is human grade ingredients. It may be a bit bland for humans, but they sure could eat my quiche.
Tails Around the Ranch says
What a cool idea! Love the mini-quiches and that looks like a great recipe. I should make some for Sam, he’s not into veggies either but loves eggs and cheese.
Maybe he would surprise you like I surprised my mom by eating the veggies too!
Groovy Goldendoodles says
Everything you make always looks so yummy Emma. This is something I think I will try for the Boys. They’d love it as a mid morning snack. Thanks so much for sharing.

Those look yummy.
They are real tasty and so easy to make too.
