Salmon dinner stuffed bones are really a 2 for 1 snack, perfect for a long holiday weekend! Last year I did some grilling of burgers, specially made for dogs. They were super tasty. This year I wanted something for a rainy day as they say Monday will be quite wet around here.
The ingredients for these tasty treats are simple! You need a can of Red Sockeye Salmon, a sweet potato, green beans, and beef marrow bones.
Why do I call these 2 for 1 snacks? What makes them great for a long weekend? It’s pretty simple. We get beef marrow bones to chew on to help keep our chompers clean and nice. Getting the marrow out of the bones takes some time and work, and in order to make these stuffed bones, a dog needs to have the bone marrow out of the bone. I checked to make sure my bones were ready to be stuffed. Your dog gets to eat the marrow in the bone first, and then the salmon dinner in the bone!
To get started, I cooked my sweet potato and sliced it up a bit to cool while the sliced beans were cooking.
The can of salmon needs to be opened too. Be sure to leave the lid on if you own a cat or your salmon may go missing. Even better, don’t leave the salmon unattended! Cat bro Bert is a naughty cat!
As always, sniff up all the ingredients to make sure they are up to snuff. Nothing would be worse than bad green beans with salmon!
Put the three ingredients into a mixing device. I like to use this handy hand crank thingy my mom has. Grind them up until they are well blended. I also added in some of the juice I had drained from the salmon can to make sure it was moist enough.
Take those empty beef marrow bones and stuff them up with the salmon mixture so you have stuffed bones.
At this point, you have two options. One, you can get busy eating, or two, you can wrap the stuffed boned in plastic wrap and freeze them. Both options are super yummy!
When you are ready, dig in! You don’t see much of our faces in our eating photos because we are 100% focused on the tastiness of these stuffed bones! I am wild about mine!
Bailie is crazy about hers as well. My mom isn’t so crazy about them because she has fish phobia, but she put on gloves to help me out and put up with the salmon smell. Mom doesn’t like beans or sweet potatoes either, if you can imagine such a thing! I guess it is true love she showed, allowing me to make these tasty treats!
You could also put this mixture into a Kong, but we liked the idea of the stuffed bones for something different. The new flavor in the bones will also keep your dog chewing the bones for dental health when the filling has been eaten. If your dog is as crazy about salmon as we are, these are sure to be a hit!
