Since the recall, dog owners have been giving home-cooked food a try to feed their dogs healthy and feed them food they know is safe. Personally I’ve always enjoyed making homemade treats for Jezzie and Bruti and it’s been a long time since they’ve had commercial dog food.  Haven’t heard any complaints from them either.

Now here’s a pawsome recipe to try!

Loafin’ Dog Mutt Loaf

A definite four paws up favorite and we’re not kitten!

Makes 8 mini mutt loaves

They might be Chihuahua-size loaves, but they pack a Great Dane-size flavor. Versatile and tasty, use them as a protein-packed meal or snack and no need to wash the plate, it’ll be licked clean. This will have your dog grinning from ear to ear. Ears to you, kid!

1 pound ground chicken
1 large egg
1 1/2 cups fresh bread crumbs
3 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon dried parsley
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease a shallow baking pan with nonstick vegetable spray.

Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix well with your hands. Shape the mixture into eight 2 x 30 inch mini loaves. Space the loaves evenly on the baking pan.

Bake for 20 minutes, or until fully cooked (155°F on an instant-read thermometer.)

Cool completely before serving.

Store covered in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

Salivatin Serving Suggestion: Ground turkey may be substituted for the chicken.
