Dog Food Recipes: Pumpkin Cheese Cups

Monday, October 28th, 2013

With the holidays coming up, I’m sure your dog could use a little holiday treat! For a delicious, tasty, and festive recipe, check out this one from The Bark Magazine!

Beyond biscuits—here’s a homemade nutritious treat perfect for those festive occasions.

Yield: About 24 mini-mutt cups and 24 garnish cookies

Dog-safe “mutt cups”
By

Ingredients
For the Cups
2 1/2 cups (310 g) whole wheat flour
1/2 cup (40 g) whole rolled oats
1 egg, slightly beaten
1 cup (240 ml) water
1/2 cup (130 g) all-natural crunchy peanut butter

For the Filling
1/2 cup (100 g) puréed pumpkin
16 ounces (450 g) cream cheese, softened to room temperature
Directions 
For the Cups

Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).
Combine wheat flour and oats in a large bowl. Add egg, water and peanut butter and mix well.
On a lightly floured surface, knead the dough and roll out to 1/8″ (0.3 cm) thickness.
Cut out twenty-four 2″ (5 cm) circles. Use remaining dough to cut out 24 small garnish cookies (Here’s an idea: Cut the cookies into your dog’s favorite shapes.)
Spray a mini-muffin pan with oil and lightly dust with flour. Lay circles in the mini-muffin cups and press.
Bake 30 minutes or until golden brown. Cool enough to handle, remove from pan, then let cool completely.

Store in sealed container until ready to fill with cheese mixture.

For the Filling
With a hand mixer, mix pumpkin and cream cheese together until well blended.
Place cream cheese mixture into a pastry bag with a large-tip opening; you can also use a plastic sandwich bag—snip corner of sandwich baggie to create a 1/2″ (1.3 cm) opening.
Gently squeeze filling into cookie cups. Garnish with a small cookie.

Dog Gravy Recipe (Modern Dog Magazine)

Tuesday, September 10th, 2013

With the holidays coming up, it is hard not to be tempted to treat your dog by drizzling gravy over their food for an extra holiday love, but did you know that our gravy isn’t good for dogs? It is far too salty for our furry friends. Instead, Modern Dog Magazine provides a recipe for healthy gravy that is perfect for dogs-“meaty, rich, delicious and with some good antioxidants, so it’s healthy as well. Organ meat in the form of liver gives it a vitamin E boost, too. It does take a bit of time to prepare, but you can then pour it into an ice-cube tray, freeze it, and take out cubes to use when you need them.”

DIY Eat – Superfood Gravy
By Henrietta Morrison

Ingredients

1 Tbsp oil
1 lb (approx 500 g) ground turkey
4 oz (100 g) liver
¼ cup frozen peas
3 cups water
Directions

Step 1 Heat the oil in a frying pan and
brown the ground turkey and liver.

Step 2 Once the meats are browned, add
the frozen peas then pour in 3 cups of
water. Put a lid on the pan and leave to
simmer for 30 minutes.

Step 3 Remove the pan from the heat
and leave to cool slightly then place the
mixture in a food processor or blender and
blitz until smooth.

It may still look a bit grainy once you
have done this, but your dog won’t mind!
Frozen in an ice-cube tray, this gravy will
keep for up to two months. Warm to room
temperature before feeding.
