Tasty Homemade Dog Food for Keelaa

After watching the video for making Muttloaf, I decided to go ahead and give it a try. The recipe was pretty easy, and all the ingredients were simple.

The recipe I used is as follows:

  • 2 lbs of 80% ground beef¬† ( I went with more fat content because Keelaa does not get too much fat in her diet.
  • 2 medium to large carrots – shredded or ground
  • 3 medium potatoes – shredded or ground
  • 1 can of kidney beans ( color does not matter)
  • 4 fresh eggs

I mixed all the above ingredients in a large bowl as though I were making meatloaf.

Do not add any breadcrumbs.

I left out the garlic powder when I made these for Keelaa because I have since learned that garlic in any form is not an approved spice for dogs to eat.

I did, however, give a dash of salt and pepper along with a bit of cinnamon.

As I was mixing this, it looked tasty.

I shaped the Muttloaf into individual meatballs and made about 22 of them and baked them for about 55 minutes in a muffin tin and on a cookie sheet. The balls do hold their shape well.

Keelaa is about a 30 lb terrier cross, and she ate 1 1/2 meatball for dinner which filled her up so much that she didn’t have enough room left in her stomach for her cottage cheese.

Best of all – She loved the recipe!

Note: Mike, myself, and my son all gave this meatball try since it did not contain any dog food products. It was pretty tasty, a little on the bland side for my taste buds and may have needed a little more salt and pepper. I knew that if we liked the Muttloaf Meatballs, she would love them.

Yes, she was one of those, a Blue Eyed Beauty. Her gaze could melt your heart. Man’s best friend loving to snuggle in that bed at night until she pushes you on the floor while she has the pillow all to herself.

Dogs are people too, the floor is hard, the bed is big and soft.

How long will you struggle with wrestling the blankets away?

Whatever you do, don’t get up to go to the bathroom or you will find yourself sleeping on the couch¬†because she has moved to your spot to keep the bed warm.

Baffled when you don’t return, she will find you, leaving the bed behind, only to crawl onto the couch to sprawl across your lap.

Man’s best friend, the Blue Eyed Beauty, companion, and blanket.
