Healthy Pet Recipe: Homemade Doggie Gobblers

 “Homemade Doggie Gobblers” by Jenna Stregowski, RVT.

These tasty canine treats are perfect for Thanksgiving or any time of year.  Cook alongside your holiday dishes and feed one or two to your dog when the family sits down to eat.  He'll feel like he's getting in on the fun without eating unhealthy table scraps. The limited ingredients in Doggie Gobblers also make them perfect for dogs with dietary restrictions.  Plus, your dog will love their meaty taste.

Ingredients

  • 5-6 ounces cooked boneless, skinless turkey breast (may substitute chicken, fish or other lean meat)
  • 1 large baking potato (or average-sized sweet potato) cut into quarters, skin on
  • 1 cup sliced carrots
  • 2 cups oats
  • 1 large egg
  • All-natural cooking spray
  • Prep Time: 15 minutes
  • Cook Time: 40 minutes

Preparation

Preheat oven to 350°

Add ingredients to a food processor one at a time, stirring by hand and then pulsing well with each addition. When thoroughly mixed, the batter will be thick and slightly pasty. If no food processor is available, you can use a blender, but mixture may be less consistent.

Lightly coat the cups of regular-sized or mini muffin pan(s) with cooking spray.

Spoon batter into muffin cups, filling each evenly.

Bake at 350° for 40-45 minutes until firm.  Place on a wire rack to cool, then flip pan to release treats.

Makes 12 regular or 24 mini Doggie Gobblers.

Gobblers will keep refrigerated for about a week or frozen for about a month. Serve straight from refrigerator, or warm for 10-15 seconds in microwave. Gobblers can also be reheated in oven for about 10 minutes. Cool before serving.

Do not feed these or any other treats as a primary food source for your dog. Treats should never make up more than 10% of a dog’s daily food intake.
