Shepherds Pie

I was really excited to try this dish because I had never cooked lamb for Milo before and I was getting tired of feeding him chicken, turkey, or fish all the time so I was excited to try something new! Milo is allergic to a few things in this recipe so I knew I would have to change some things to adapt. He is allergic to beef so instead, I used some left over chicken broth I had in the freezer to cook the lamb in. He is also allergic to potatoes so I instead used oatmeal and prepared it like it said on the package. The great thing about this recipe is you can easily change it to the needs of your dog.

Here is what you’ll need…

-1/2 cup of unsalted beef broth 

-2 lbs ground lamb 

-1/2 cup of frozen or canned peas

-1/2 cup chopped carrots 

-1/2 cup pureed strawberries 

-6 medium red potatoes diced 

Step 1: Preheat oven to 400 degrees

Step 2: In a large saucepan, simmer lamb in brother over medium low heat until browned

Step 3: Add peas and carrots to the lamb and simmer for another 2 to 3 minutes to soften the veggies.

Step 4: In a medium pot, cover potatoes with water and bring to a boil. Cook until soft when pierced with fork, about 25 minutes. Drain them and mash well in the pot.

Step 5: Spray 9 by 13 inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. Pour lamb and vegetables into prepared baking dish and distribute mashed potatoes evenly on top.

Step 6: Cover with foil and bake 45 minutes, removing foil for the last 5 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool completely before serving.

Please refer to a feeding chart and adjust measurements according to your dogs weight
