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.
