Melissa's Maltese Doggie Food Recipe
(Orlando, FL, USA)
3 lbs. ground turkey
1 lb ground pork
(meats could be chicken or beef, but my pup is allergic to chicken)
2 packages frozen mixed veggies (check to make sure they are veggies that are acceptable to pups, not harmful, e.g.onions)
2 bags (family-size) boil-in-bag brown rice
1. place the frozen veggies in microwave to steam/cook, when done, put them in food processor to finely chop.
2. cook rice according to box directions. (about 10 mins.)
3. put about 4 tblsp of oil in a pan, and brown all the meat together. when it is just about done, sprinkle about 1/4 cup of oatmeal and 1/4 cup of wheat germ and mix it with the meat. the extra juices from the meat will help to absorb the oatmeal and wheat germ, this will only take about 2 mins at the end of cooking the meat.
4. in a big bowl or deep pot, mix together the rice, vegetables and meat mixture and portion out with ice cream scoop, 1 heaping spoonful per meal into Ziploc baggie and freeze.
