Are you looking to cook something for your dog ? Why don’t you cook meatballs.
Meatballs – how fun! We loved discovering recipes that felt close to actual human meals, or that were presented in an interesting and fun way. Sumika, the writer behind the Mrs. Pacman blog, created this recipe while searching for a way to please her then 11-year-old pup Maru, who had grown tired of her usual dry food diet.
At first, she tried simply switching her to a wet food diet, but Maru had difficulty licking her mushy wet food up, which is where the idea for meatballs originally started. After that first meal, Maru and Sumika knew they’d found just the right solution!Beyond the meatball styling, this recipe is great for it’s use of pumpkin (a stool softener, important for any seniors) and oat bran (fiber, which helps with a healthy digestive system).
- Put all ingredients in a large bowl. Mix them all together and form them into any size of balls you’d like.
- Dredge the balls lightly in the flour, shaking off any excess.
- Put them in 400 degree oven until done. Bake time will depend on the size of your balls; usually mine only take about 25 min. (Mine are about the size of a muscadine or those donut holes)
