Meatloaf for doggies

If you're preparing for Thanksgiving and want to make something extra for the dog in your life, a dog-friendly meatloaf might hit the spot. 

If your pet can't eat wheat, you can leave out the bread slices and wheat germ. Instead, add oat bran and increase the oatmeal to twelve cups.

You need:

  • 1 pound of ground beef or ground turkey
  • 1 container of cottage cheese (24 ounces)
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 cup of milk powder
  • 1/4 cup of wheat germ
  • 8 slices of oatmeal bread (crumbled)
  • 8 cups of cooked oatmeal
  • 4 cups of cooked brown rice

What to do:

Blend the ground beef and the cottage cheese. Add in the eggs, milk powder, and wheat germ. When those ingredients are mixed, add crumbled bread, oatmeal, and the brown rice. Mix well.

You can bake the mixture as one large meatloaf, as meatloaf muffins, or in smaller pans. It should be baked at 350F for an hour.

The meatloaf freezes very well.

Do you cook and bake for your pets? What is your favorite recipe?
