Dog-friendly meatloaf

It is Friday and many want to make a special weekend treat for their dogs. Here is a recipe for meatloaf for dogs. 

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

What 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.

  1. That must make a large meatloaf! Sounds yummy, though.

    1. Somehow, a small meatloaf seems to worry my gang more than a large one, lol!
