Why You'll Love This Recipe
You will love this recipe for Sunday Brunch for Dogs because now you can brunch with your dog! No more searching for dog friendly restaurants for brunch, instead brunch with your dog at home!
There’s nothing I live more than brunch! A little indulgent breakfast food in the middle of the day combined with relaxing is really an amazing combination. So, of course, I want John John to experience brunch and all its glory.
I start this recipe by making my Blueberry Pancakes for Dogs. And I’ve had some extra egg whites recently from baking, so I cooked them up in coconut oil for John John as he loves egg whites! You can use whole eggs if you would like to as well, either works!
I use Organic Prairie Ground Turkey and form two sausage links. I cooked them up in coconut oil as well (his fave!) and it really rounds out the meal with more protein. I added some fresh blueberries for antioxidants and a little sweetness. And John John goes nuts for this easy Sunday Brunch for Dogs!
My friends at Dog is Human sent us some of their multivitamins to try out, as I make all of John John’s food. This USA made, non-GMO multivitamin is a great addition to your dog’s homemade meals! Add it on top as a treat or crumble it up and mix it in. Use code MIMI20 for 20% off!

How to Make Sunday Brunch for Dogs
Make or defrost the pancakes. Use my Blueberry Pancakes for Dogs recipe.
Form the ground turkey into sausage links. You can make smaller or larger ones depending on the size of your dog. Or you can even just cook all the ground turkey as is, because you should be breaking up the links anyways, haha. But, I like to make it look cute first!
In a small skillet over medium heat, add a little coconut oil to coat the pan, and add your turkey sausage links in. Cook and rotate until they are completely cooked, about 5 minutes.
No need to wash the pan, add the eggs in and scramble over medium heat.
Plate your dog’s brunch with pancakes, eggs, turkey sausage, and fresh blueberries.
Tips for Making Sunday Brunch for Dogs
• Depending on the size of your dog, you may need to make more or less of this meal to fit your dog’s food requirements. John John is 18 pounds and he ate this whole meal (minus one pancake as that was too much, but I wanted to use it for the photos!).
• I used my Blueberry Pancakes for Dogs recipe. I made these a few weeks ago for John John and I put some in the freezer, so I could take them out as needed. These freeze really good, so you can make them and freeze some if your dog won’t eat them all right away. I used zip bags to freeze them, and I thawed them out in the microwave!
• I used egg whites here because I had extras from baking. Your dog can eat the whole egg and the whole egg is good for them! Eggs provide protein along with essential amino and fatty acids. They have vitamins including A and B12, folate, iron, selenium, and riboflavin. These are all great for your dog and they can improve skin and coat health as well as aid in stronger teeth and bones.
• I use organic ground turkey to make turkey sausages. John John eats ground turkey a lot for dinner, so I just set aside a bit of raw meat to form a couple sausage links. I cooked these in a skillet with coconut oil until done. You could also form them into little patties, but I thought the links would be funnier for this shoot!
• I added fresh blueberries to this Sunday Brunch for Dogs. Blueberries are high in antioxidants, Vitamin C and K, and fiber, which are all great for your dogs, plus they love these little fruits! You could also add strawberries, blackberries, banana, or apples to this plate as well as these are all dog friendly fruits.
Can I make something else besides pancakes?
Yes, try my Waffle Recipe for Dogs or Pumpkin Waffles for Dogs. You can also give your dog peanut butter toast, wheat is safe for dogs so long as they do not have a gluten allergy. Make sure you are giving your dog bread that is free of sugars, seed oils, and seeds as there are some seeds that are toxic to dogs (like caraway). Go for sourdough bread as that will be most nutritious to dogs and just give them a small amount. I used to feed this to Otto when he was sick, and I'd cut the toast into tiny squares and he loved it! My top pick is the Inked Sourdough Bread, this has no sugar and it has very few ingredients. This is the bread we buy in our house!
Are blueberries good for dogs?
Yes! Dogs can benefit from all the Health Benefits of Eating Blueberries just like humans can! Plus, they are a bite sized snack your dog will love. I give John John blueberries every day and we both eat them together.
Are eggs good for dogs?
Yes! Eggs are a great source of protein, B vitamins, and vitamin A for your dog. They can also make their coat shiny. You can give your dog the whole egg and also just the whites. Sometimes I need yolks for baking, so I always save the whites for John John as he loves both the whites and whole eggs, shocker, haha!
Why Organic for Your Dog?
You may be wondering why you should buy organic food for your dog. It's the same reasons that you should buy organic food for yourself. Your dog's health is important, just like yours. So, treating them right with organic ingredients will benefit their long term health.
And organic ingredients are much healthier for your dog to eat in general as they do not contain GMOs or anything artificial. Plus, you are being environmentally friendly when you choose organic ingredients! And that counts for your pup too!
