I was excited to make this recipe for milo but a little wary because I didn’t know how his stomach was going to handle the cheese, but I thought I would give it a try and see what happened and my results were fantastic! This recipe was really easy to make and milo absolutely loved it! He started jumping on me as soon as I took it out of the fridge and gobbles it up every time! I would definitely recommend waiting to feed your dog this recipe until you have been making homemade meals for awhile and your dog is use to different types of food in their diet. Otherwise, the dairy might be hard on their stomachs at first.
Here is what you’ll need… (This makes 4 servings for a 50 pound dog)
- -1 lb uncooked elbow macaroni
- -2 cups shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
- -1/4 cup low fat milk
- -1 tbs butter
- -1 small sweet potato, diced (I used oatmeal because of my dogs potato allergy)
- -2 1/2 lbs ground chicken
- -1/4 cup wheat germ
- -1/2 cup plain greek yogurt
Step 1: preheat oven to 350 degrees. Coat bottom of a 9 by 13 inch casserole dish with non stick cooking spray
Step 2: Cook macaroni as directed on the package. Drain then place in a large bowl. Add the cheese, milk, and butter. Mix all the ingredients together until the cheese is melted
Step 3: In a medium pot, cover the sweet potato with water, and bring to a boil. Cook until it is soft when pierced with the tip of a knife, about 20 minutes. Drain and mash well in a pot.
Step 4: In a second bowl, combine the ground chicken and sweet potato.
Step 5: Spread the macaroni and cheese mixture evenly over the bottom of the prepared dish. Spread the ground chicken and sweet potato mixture on top. Sprinkle with the wheat germ.
Step 6: Cover the casserole with foil and bake it for 40 minutes, or until chicken is fully cooked and let the casserole cool completely before serving.
