With all the recent horror stories about manufactured dog food and treats, I’ve been making more and more of the food I give my dogs.
You’d be surprised how easy it is, and the best part is that I know exactly what they’re eating. There’s no wondering if the meat is contaminated or if deadly chemicals found their way into the food at the factory. I have peace of mind knowing my dogs are eating healthy, fresh food, and it doesn’t cost a lot of money.
One of my dogs’ favorite homemade dinners is beef & veggie meatballs. They’re easy to quick and easy to make, and they won’t break the bank. Check this out!
Beefy Veggie Meatballs
1 pound lean ground beef
1 cup cooked brown rice
1 stalk of celery, finely chopped
1 carrot, shredded or finely chopped
1/2 cup frozen spinach, thawed and chopped
2 tablespoons parmesan cheese
2 large eggs
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
2. Spray muffin tin with Pam or brush lightly with cooking oil.
3. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl, mixing well.
4. Form mixture into 12 balls and place one in each muffin tin.
5. Bake for 20-25 minutes.
6. Cool before serving and store leftovers in a sealed container in the fridge.
I serve 2 meatballs to Nike, my 70 pound Pit Bull mix, and one meatball to Sadie, my 20 pound Dachshund. They love the meatballs, and they’re always underfoot when I’m making them. They can’t wait until the meatballs are ready to eat!
Do you have a meatball recipe? I’d love for you to share it with me! Be sure to try these, and let me know what your dogs think of them. I’m willing to bet they’ll love them, and you’ll like knowing what you’re feeding your pets.
