Weekends are pawfect for testing my culinary skills, and this weekend I decided to make halloween dog treats…
Using my Dog Obsessed cookbook from The Honest Kitchen I chose Halloween Pumpkin Ginger Nibbles!
A few of the ingredients that caught my eye sounded pawfect for Harley since he’s taking antibiotics for his allergen outbreak…
Sometimes medications may be agitating to the stomach. Pumpkin and ginger can be incredibly soothing to #doodletummies
Because it was Halloween I decided to dress the part…
But you’ll have to watch the video to learn more about my costume.
The Honest Kitchen recipes are super easy and relatively quick. To be honest #punintended baking takes the most time.
THE RECIPE –
- 1 cup Love dehydrated dog food
- 1 cup warm water
- 1 cup lean ground beef
- 1/2 cup mashed, cooked pumpkin
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 1/4 cup cream cheese
- 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1 free-range egg, beaten
THE STEPS –
- Pre-heat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Coat your baking sheet with olive oil
- Hydrate the Love with warm water. Stir thoroughly. Mix in the ground beef.
- Add the remaining ingredients and stir well to combine.
- Make into balls. For smaller treats bake for 30 minutes, for larger treats bake for up to 45 minutes.
- Allow to cool and refrigerate for a week.
MY REVIEW –
Together my ingredients seemed “moist” so I chose to place them in my mini muffin pan..
This helped with keeping their shape.
The Boys romped in the backyard while the treats baked…
Beefy nibbles cook in no time! The consistency is a lot like soft meatballs, which is not a bad thing, but it did give me an idea –
Crumble some on top of their dinner like a topper!
Huge success there!
I later placed them on a cookie sheet lined with foil and placed them back in the oven at a lower temperature to dry out just a bit. #tellingyouthewholetruth
Watch me work and learn more about my costume!…
With each attempt to make the Boys something yummy – using The Honest Kitchen food and recipes, I find I’m gaining more confidence in myself when it comes to homemade dog treats.
Make sure you look for our Thanksgiving meal next month. I’m going all out. It’s a holiday AND Harley’s 8th birthday, so I plan to cook up something extra #doodlespecial.
