This recipe was really fun and super easy with very little clean up which is always a plus. I had never given Milo turkey before. The only meat he has ever had was chicken and beef so I was curious as to whether or not he was going to like it. He has also never had greek yogurt before except for baked in his treats. So overall I was curious how this was going to go…
Here is what you’ll need: (this makes 4 servings for a 50 pound dog)
– 1 Tablespoon of olive oil
-2 pounds ground turkey breast ( I puree it in the food processor for easier digestion)
-1/4 cup chopped carrot ( I puree instead of chop)
-4 hard boiled eggs, shell on
-1/4 cup plain greek yogurt containing live active cultures
-1/4 cup wheat germ
Step 1: In a large sauté pan, heat the oil over medium low heat. Add the turkey and cook until browned. Drain any excess fat and set the turkey aside to cool.
Step 2: Puree the carrots in a food processor. You should have about 1/4 cup of carrot puree.
Step 3: Combine the turkey, eggs, Yogurt, Carrot puree, and wheat germ all together and mix well.
Benefits: Eggs give all of a dogs essential amino acids and when served with egg shell on and are also a great source of calcium. Also, Greek yogurt is high in protein and calcium and combined with probiotic cultures can also help with digestion.
Milo absolutely loved this dish! He was literally scratching at my leg while I was cooking the ground turkey and was jumping trying to get to his bowl while I was trying to put it down on the ground. I barely had time to walk away to fill up his water bowl before he had licked the bowl clean and was begging for more. Another success in the books!
