I feed our dogs this mix along with available dry food, they enjoy this a lot. I also will add leftover shredded chicken just for an extra protein boost. Healthier than the dry / canned dog food available. You can also add leftover baby food jars of pure meat to flavour this. Prep time doesn't include cool down, wrapping nor freezing. We have 4 dogs from small to large, serving size depends on the size / breed of your dog.
- 2 -3 carrots, shredded
- 4 potatoes, shredded
- any leftover vegetables, shredded (no onions ( or toss in some frozen veggies)
- 1 lb navy beans, cooked
- 3 lbs hamburger (I use 21 % fat)
- 4 eggs
- 1⁄4 cup wheat germ
- 3 teaspoons low-sodium beef bouillon cubes
- Heat oven to 350°F.
- Lightly oil a 13x9-inch baking dish.
- In a very large mixing bowl: shred carrots, potatoes and any leftover veggies, no need to peel.
- Using rubber gloves hand mix/mash remaining ingredients into veggie mixture, mixing till no lumps.
- Place mixture into baking dish, spreading evenly.
- Bake for approx 1 1/2 hours.
- Cool on wire rack.
- Slice pieces into a size your dog will eat, foil wrap and date, toss into freezer bags, label for dogs Freeze remaining slices.
- Defrost, then feed.
Tried this today and got an A+ from my Springer Spaniel.
LOve this recipe for our picky yorkie. I have made several variations, including brown rice (precooked) instead of potaoes and I find that cooking it in cupcake tins provides the perfect portion size, and I can freeze the doggie "cuploaves" easier. Thank You!
My elderly dog with medical problems who was refusing to eat any commercial dog food on his own just gobbles this up!! We've gone from hand/force feeding to cleaning the bowl and looking for more. I'll be trying this with chicken. Great recipe!
