Nothing makes me happier than cooking meals for the whole family with ingredients that come from our own farm and garden. I thought I’d share some of those recipes, especially those that you could potentially share with your dog! For this post, we are sharing “Baked Eggs with Kale & Cherry Tomatoes”. This recipe is not just tasty, it’s healthy, and its simple! We originally found it on The Roasted Root, but I made some small changes to the original to simplify it and suit myself. It was listed as a breakfast recipe, but we cook it for dinner.
While I wouldn’t cook a whole serving for Luke, he always gets to lick our plates after we eat our meals, and we usually leave him a nibble or two as well. It’s important to me to know that whatever he is getting is safe for him, maybe even healthy, even if it’s only a small amount. I try to cook healthy meals for the Dadz and I as well, as much as possible. We aren’t perfect eaters, but I think we do pretty well. Having our own organic eggs and veggies (for part of the year) is such a bonus!
This recipe has become a favorite. It was one of the first I made when we started to get our own fresh eggs. I’ve made it every year since and this year we liked it so much, we did it again, with the last of our cherry tomatoes.
Kale is one of those superfoods I love to talk about, so it’s great for both humans and dogs. While I would not feed Luke a lot of tomatoes, he has occasionally eaten one, and ripe tomatoes are fine for dogs. The fiber, antioxidants and vitamins in them are even good for them. You’d just want to be careful not to overdo because of the acid content, especially if your dog has tummy issues. You also never want to let your dog eat green tomatoes, any of the stems or any part of a tomato plant; that can be toxic for them (the same goes for our chickens, which I find interesting!).
The herbs included are also fine for dogs, thyme can even help a dog with stomach issues, and parsley promotes fresh breath and good digestion. Both herbs contain anti-oxidants and vitamins that are great for everyone’s health. Parsley should be avoided for pregnant dogs or those with kidney issues, however.
We hope you give this recipe a try, and your dog at least gets to lick the plate! Let us know if you do, and how you like it!

That is so drool-worthy looking!
It’s not only tasty, but pretty too, right? 🙂
Melissa Clinton says
That sounds interesting! I haven’t developed a taste for kale hut I’ve tried.
I think you’d find you like it in this recipe, or I also have one for Kale BLT Pasta Salad. Bacon makes everything taste good, right? 🙂
That looks really good – but I’ve never had Kale before!
I wouldn’t love kale in everything….or by itself, but in this recipe and one other, it is really good.
joann stancer says
oh wow, that looks delish!!!
The first time I made it, I was worried, because I don’t really love kale. But I’ve found a couple recipes that are great with it.
Ellen Pilch says
That looks amazing. Parmesan cheese makes everything delicious-even kale 🙂 Thanks for sharing.
You’ve got that right! I’ve been using Parmesan in a ton of different recipes lately!
Cathy Bennett says
You know I’m all about the recipes now that I mastered one the Boys seemed to enjoy! LOL
Thanks for sharing….
Cooking can be fun, but I always go with the simpler the better too!
The Island Cats says
That recipe looks pretty tasty. And how awesome that you can make it from everything from your farm. 🙂
I think that makes it taste even better! 🙂
Brian Frum says
That does sound like a good one, the Dad might have to try that soon!
Is your Dad the head chef around there?
Oh my that breakfast sounds so good. I’m ready for that this morning. I get to see Luke too. He’s so handsome.
Thank you for joining the Awww Mondays Blog Hop.
Have a fabulous Awww Monday and week. ♥
It’s a great way to start the day, in more ways than one! 🙂
Catscue Catmom says
That looks so good, and fresh from the farm ingredients is even better – I’m envious!
We’re living the good life here! I’d invite you over for a meal if I could! 🙂
Molly the AireGirl says
This looks sooooooo yummy! Mom says she is saving this recipe but might substitute the kale for spinach.
That’s a great idea too, though I’m not a fan of spinach myself. I actually don’t like many green leafy vegetables, so I’m surprised I like kale!
We have seen such a difference in your happiness level since you have the farm. It’s wonderful you are living the life you really want to live and are enjoying some of the fruits of your labor.
Thank you so much….I think you are right. The farm truly does make me happy, and I think I’m finally figuring things out after losing my job. It’s a good life!
That sounds like a truly yummy meal!
If we were just having it ourselves maybe we would add some garlic and S & P, or some jalapeno peppers.
This sort of reminds us of an Asian recipe…where you bake the eggs in a sauce made with spices and tomatoes.
Those are great ideas for additions!
