I know someone else posted this. I couldn`t find it here on DT, but saved it in one of my files. Thought I would print it and hopefully some of you have some good recipes to add.
Dog Food recipe
approx. 5 lbs of ground beef/turkey or chicken
3/4 cup canola oil
4-5 cloves garlic
32 cups water
8-10 cups processed veggies (various -- carrots, celery, broccoli, cauliflower, bean sprouts, potatoes, sweet potatoes, red peppers, spinach, beets, lettuce, tomatoes, etc. ** NO ONIONS** not good for dogs)
2-3 cans kidney beans
1/2 c molasses (optional)
42-45 oz oatmeal (quick cooking oats)
eggs can be added to boost protein
In a large 24qt pot brown ground meat, add canola oil and garlic. When well cooked, add water. Bring to boil, then add veggies that have been processed, (frozen or canned veggies will work too). I use dried kidney beans and soak them the night before preparing a batch of food. While I am cooking the meat I have the beans in another pot cooking them. Once cooked, they are added to the above mixture. Next, the oatmeal is added. Frequent stirring is necessary at this point as the mixture will stick. Remove from heat, cool and put into containers. The above mixture feeds 3 Boxers for 1 week. I occasionally add pumpernickell bread and some times substitute brown rice for some of the oatmeal. This recipe is very flexible. I also add a mixture called Healthy powder to each meal. I feed twice daily and add 1 tsp of healthy powder to each meal for each dog.
