Have you ever had Lamb Poppers? New Year’s Eve is this weekend, the humans typically eat a fancy meal. Why not make up something special for your pup? My New Year’s Eve Lamb Poppers are easy to make, and your dog will love them! I named them Poppers because the top pops up when they are baked, and dogs will pop them into their mouth in one fell swoop.
In my recipe, I chose to use lamb because we love it, although you could substitute any ground meat your dog loves. You’ll also need a sweet potato, egg, carrots, and parsley. I prepared the delicacies in small muffin tins, but you could use regular muffin tins if your dog is larger.
First off, I mixed the egg into the ground lamb until it was completely blended. It seems to work better if you use your paws rather than a spoon. I mashed the sweet potato with a fork, and had my mom grate a carrot for me.
Next up, you need to grease your muffin tins, and press a small amount of the meat mixture into the bottom of the tin and up the sides. Add a dollop of the sweet potato, and top that with some carrots. Seal the deal with another small amount of the ground meat mixture over the top. My photo shows each stage of the process so you can see how it looks.
Because my store only had 3/4 lb of lamb, I wasn’t able to make all twelve, but if you have a full pound it would work much better, and fill all twelve cups. I also added a bit more parsley to the tops for decoration.
These tasty morsels will hang out in the oven for half an hour, and when they come out, guess what? Yep! The tops will be popped up! Pretty cool, isn’t it?
After removing them from the pan and cooling it was time to plate them up. You can see in the photo how they popped up on top.
While I was cleaning up the kitchen, there was an attempted attack by the cat burglar in the house. It is imperative you keep a close eye on the Lamb Poppers at all times because they are good enough to steal!
Finally I got to pop a Popper into my mouth, and I loved it! My expression in the first photo in this post pretty much says it all!
Why not make some tasty Poppers for your pup this New Year’s Eve? My recipe is available here if you would like to make these at your house. Enjoy, and Happy New Year!
