It’s me, Chef Emma, in the kitchen ready to make my new all in one Thanksgiving recipe for dogs! A couple years ago, I made some turkey jerky, but this year, I decided to take it up a notch or two!
My idea was to make a jerky, but one that has the entire meal in each piece! I thought about a Thanksgiving dinner, and selected a few key components – turkey, sweet potatoes, and cranberries. These items will be my main ingredients.
I combined the three basic ingredients in my mixing bowl and also added 2 tbsp of coconut oil, and 2 tbsp of parsley. A dog needs to have nice, fresh, kissable breath you know!
Next, I rolled out my meat mixture to about 1/4 inch thick. You can see the ingredients in the meat as I roll it out.
The original plan was to use my turkey cookie cutter to cut turkeys out of my meat, but it was an epic failure! For one, I couldn’t tell it was a turkey, it didn’t like cutting into cranberries, and later I found out it shrinks when baked. Therefore, I suggest just slicing your meat into one inch wide, two or three inch long strips.
Put all the yummy pieces onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet to get them ready for the oven. Since they shrink, no need to worry about having them too close together.
Just a few hours later, you will have a nice plate of my Thanksgiving recipe for dogs. It may not be the prettiest plate on the table, but I bet it is the tastiest!
You could keep in in the refrigerator for up to a week in a closed container, but I doubt it will last that long. The batch I made was gone in three days at my house. Click here to get a copy of my All In One Thanksgiving Recipe for Dogs.
