Easy Peasy Mutt-loaf
Hello again! It’s a beautiful, sunny, fall day here. I hope you are all doing well.
So, in my quest to please my picky eater of a dog, I have created another “delicious” meal (The other one I made was a crockpot dog stew, follow this link to view – https://happyandhandcrafted.com/homemade-crockpot-dog-food/ ) This one is a bit of a take on meatloaf and it’s full of healthy ingredients for a happy, healthy pup!

When it comes to my picky pup, one thing is for sure, she loves meat! So this loaf is loaded with it! This mutt-loaf is so simple and can be customized to your dog’s taste or possible allergies and the best part is that it’s freezable. I made a large batch that yielded 4 loaf pans worth. I baked two of the loaves and froze the other two. So, next week when I’m really busy all I have to do is thaw and bake! Love that!!
~What you’ll need~
- Large package of ground beef (about 4-5 pounds)
- Organ meat – gizzards, liver, heart etc (about 2 pounds. I used a pound of both chicken gizzards and liver)
- 2 cups whole oats
- 1/2 cup hemp seeds
- 1/2 cup flax seeds
- 1 – 1 1/2 cup mixed veggies (I used peas, beans, carrots and corn)
- 1 cup sweet potato – diced
- 4 eggs (I added a couple ground up egg shells to this as well – good for calcium but optional)
- 1 tbsp tumeric (optional)
First, set your oven to 350 degrees
Since I used gizzards and livers in this batch I chopped those up into smaller pieces so it would be easier to combine everything.
Once that’s done put those and all the other ingredients into a large mixing bowl and combine. I put gloves on and just used my hands.
Work at it until everything is mixed together really well. Once you’re done mixing start filling your loaf pans. Put them in the oven and bake for 1 hour.
As I said before I only baked two of these and I covered the other two in plastic wrap and put them in the freezer.
