If you are looking to start making your own dog food, this recipe is a great place to start. Made with fresh ingredients, this “meat-loaf” spinoff is a great way to bake and slice your pets portions. You can serve it fresh daily for big dogs, slice it up for smaller dogs, and even make a few batches and store in the freezer. Be careful! This could spoil your dog into not wanting to eat kibble anymore.
