Super easy and healthy dumplings guaranteed your dog will love! 😋
This recipe uses the ‘Simply Sardines’ filling from Bowie Drools Over Dumplings Recipe Book and eggs for the wrapper. They are such a perfect combination to easily and inexpensively improve your dog’s diet.
Did you know
Eggs are one of those complete protein sources and amongst the most nutritious foods on the planet that are packed with so many nutrients such as vitamin A, B12, folate, iron, selenium, fatty acids and riboflavin. Eggs are so versatile too! You can add raw eggs, poached, scrambled, steamed or rolled eggs into your dog’s meals.
The other quick and easy addition to your dog’s diet that we love is Sardines. If you can get hold of frozen fresh whole sardines, that’s even better!
Did you know
Sardines are small, soft-boned fish that are amongst the lowest levels of mercury of any fish, making them safe to be consumed by our dogs. They are rich in omega-3 and an excellent source of calcium, vitamin D and B-12.
Bowie’s Simply Sardines filling recipe also has psyllium husk which is a great source of soluble fibre that can help relieve both constipation and diarrhea. Read more about the importance of adding Fibre to your dog’s diet here.
Bowie’s Egg Dumpling Recipe
Makes about 8–10 dumplings
Please portion according to your dog’s weight and dietary needs. Always introduce new foods slowly and monitor. If you’re unsure with the ingredients, consult with your vet/pet nutritionist.
Filling (adapted from Simply Sardines Recipe)
2 frozen fresh whole sardines* (roughly chopped)
1/2 to 1 tsp psyllium husk
1 tsp fresh parsley (finely chopped)
*If you can’t find fresh ones, you can substitute with tinned sardines (in springwater).
2 medium/large eggs
1/2 to 1 tsp plain flour*
*The plain flour will make the egg mixture thicker and stay tender/moist so it’s easier to form the wrapper. You can also add a little bit of milk or grated cheddar/parmesan cheese.
- Mix all the filling ingredients well.
- Beat the eggs and mix well with the flour. Make sure there are no clumps.
- You need a non-stick frying pan, a soup ladle and spatula to make dumpling cooking much easier.
- You can oil the frying pan with coconut oil or olive oil, but I find that it’s not necessary when you use a non-stick frying pan.
- Heat the frying pan in high heat first then reduce to medium heat.
- See images below for cooking steps.
There you go… super easy, and not to mention, healthy too!
