It’s no secret that I love my pets! I love to spoil them! After all what’s the use of having pets if you can’t spoil em’ rotten? I have seen some home made recipes in a few magazines lately on how to cook for your dog. So, I decided to give it a try. I found this recipe for “Bark Balls” on LovingPetProducts.com Here. It was so easy to make, and only has a few ingredients so it is an inexpensive treat as well. Most of the ingredients I had on hand.
Here is the Recipe:
1/2 lb ground meat (chicken, turkey, or beef)
1 carrot, finely grated
1/2 cup whole wheat bread crumbs
1 egg (beaten)
1 tsp tomato paste
1 tsp. low fat grated cheese
- Preheat oven to 350 F.
• Mix all ingredients well.
• Roll into balls and place on a greased cookie sheet.
• Sprinkle with low-fat grated cheese (optional).
• Bake until brown and firm, about 15 minutes.
• Cool and transfer to an airtight container.
• Store in fridge or freezer.
Beaureguard and my mom’s dog Lily totally loved them as you can see. Beau’s sister Sadie even joined in and she’s pretty picky sometimes. These are a great treat! They are wholesome, natural and simple. Something I can feel good about indulging the pups with! I know I will be trying more recipes soon for my four legged babies.
