“After the wet dog food scare recently I have started cooking for my big lab. I got this recipe from Food Network. This recipe reflects my changes. The original was on one of Bobby Flay’s shows. I mix these in with my dogs dry food (Innova Large Breed) and he gobbles it up (he gets 2-4 patties a day; 1-2 at each meal). :)I hope your furry friend loves it as much as mine.”

Ready In:
40mins

Ingredients:
7

Serves:
2

  • 1

    cup brown rice, cooked (you can use long-grain as well)
  • 1

    cup oatmeal (I use cooked oatmeal but dry oats work too)
  • 2

    garlic cloves, pressed (optional)
  • 1

    cup cooked mixed vegetables (carrots, peas, green beans, lima beans, zucchini, etc.)
  • 1

    lb ground beef
  • 1

    lb ground turkey or 1 lb ground pork
  • 2 -3

    eggs (keep the shells, pulverize them with a mortar and pestle, if you have one or just crush them up)

directions

  • Cook rice in chicken stock or water, covered over a low flame until done, about 20-25 minutes.
  • Process blanched/cooked veggies in food processor until the bits are about the same size as the rice. This will help your pet absorb the nutrients. Mix with 2 eggs. Fold into rice mixture. Add ground meat and form into balls. If balls aren’t holding together well, add the third egg and mix again.
  • Form into round patties and grill, bake or broil until done. I use a large size scoop to make the patties equal size so they cook evenly.
  • I refrigerate enough for 3 days worth of meals and then I pack away the rest in the freezer in one day servings and pull out what I’ll need the night before to thaw.
  • This can also be cooked in a loaf pan, sort of a meatloaf for your pup at 350º for 50-55 minutes or until an internal meat thermometer reaches 160º.

RECIPE SUBMITTED BY

I am a California born desert rat (born & raised in 29 Palms; it’s a dry heat! LOL!) transplanted in the boonies of New Jersey. Home is where the Air Force sends you and currently it’s Jersey so forgetaboutit! LOL!

I am a lucky lady. I met my better half and best friend in PE class in high school back in 1984. We have been together ever since. We will celebrate our 21 year wedding anniversary in Nov ’08. After being told I could never have children we are blessed with two wonderful children.

What can I say except that I love my family!I love to eat! I love to cook (I do have days I’d rather go out and eat LOL!). I’m addicted to Food Network! I watch it everyday. I also watch Top Chef, Hell’s Kitchen and some of the cooking shows on the BBC ( Masterchef, Daily Cooks, etc..). Thank goodness for Tivo. 😉

My honey on his first deployment to the Middle East in ’03:

I am always looking for good recipes to try. I like to try new recipes at least once a week or as our budget allows. My family and friends love being my taste testers.

With the last big dog food scare I stopped feeding our big boy commercial dog food. After researching and reading about commercial dog food over the past year and finding out that the dog food companies use nasty stuff not fit for human consumption (roadkill, euthanized animals, slaughterhouse gunk, etc…) I now cook for our family pet. I wish I would have made the switch sooner. Fortunately all his blood tests came back normal after eating some of the tainted food. I have put his favorite home cooked dog food recipes in my “Jimmy Boy” cookbook. My heart goes out to those of you who lost a pet to the tainted dog food.

I highly recommend educating yourself about commercial dog foods and dog food companies. It is shocking what they can do and what they can get away with. A good book to read is: “Foods Pets Die For” by Ann Martin. click here

How I rate recipes: If I make a dish and do not like it I don’t rate it. I’d hate for someone to leave a bad rating on one of my recipes so I don’t do it to others. I figure we are all different and we all have different tastes. Who am I to tell someone that their favorite recipe needs work because my tastes are different?
