Tuesday is Shrove Tuesday. It goes by many other names, such as Fat Tuesday, Donut Day, and Pancake Day. While you spend the day enjoying chocolate or whatever it is you’ll be giving up the next day for the start of Lent, pancakes are a great staple for any time of the year. And here are three recipes you can make to include your dog in the Fat Tuesday fun.

Egg and Flour Pancakes
Combine the three ingredients into a batter. Add more water if necessary.
Next, add some of the mixture to the bottom of a microwaveable dish and pop into the microwave for a couple of minutes. You can also fry your dog’s pancakes with a small amount of oil, which is good to keep your dog’s coat shiny and healthy.
Voilà! The dog friendly pancakes are ready!
You can top with apple slices or banana slices or peanut butter (watch out for the kind that includes xylitol).
