Happy Foodie Friday!!!  Each week we share with our friends a recipe for homemade dog food or dog treats.  We hope you will stop in each week to see what we have come up with.

Coco is especially excited about today’s meal because it contains two of her favorite foods: Lamb and Sweet Potato. To be accurate I should say that sweet potato is a favorite veggie but Lamb is her obsession.

 

That said, have you noticed the price of ground lamb?  What the ____?  Given the price I usually wait until it goes on sale and buy 3 half pound packs which I wrap really well before I freeze.  If you don’t have ground lamb you can use any ground meat.  My suggestion would be to use lean ground beef instead.

You can use regular potatoes but I prefer sweet potatoes because they have more nutrition than regular potatoes. They’re rich in antioxidants and anti-inflammatory nutrients, and contain Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Manganese, Copper, Fiber, Vitamin B6, Potassium, Iron.  But… sweet potato has a ton of starch so don’t feed too much if your dog is trying to lose weight. 

By the way, I can’t really call this a recipe.  Its more of a meal idea.

 

Ingredients:

1/2lb ground lamb

1/2 cup frozen peas

1/2 teaspoon minced garlic (optional)*

1 med. sweet potato

 

Peel and slice the sweet potato the boil until soft.  You can also cook them in water a microwave safe dish.

 

While the sweet potato cooks, place the lamb, peas and garlic into a skillet and saute until cooked fully.  Do not add any oil to the pan.

 

Combine and serve a small portion over your dogs regular food or add your daily supplements and serve a cupful as a meal.

*A word on garlic: There are many pet parents that avoid giving garlic to their pets and there are those of us who believe in the benefits of a small amount of cooked fresh garlic.  Do your research and decide for yourself.  If you do feed garlic, try to avoid garlic salt and garlic powder.  Most importantly, decide what you want to do for your dog and ask others to respect that choice.
