DIY Eat - Beef Meatballs
These little meatballs are generally a success. They are easy to feed to your dog and don’t require too much chewing. You can give them throughout the day if your pet is only eating a little at a time. They are a little fatty so don’t give them to patients suffering from pancreatic or gastrointestinal disease.
Suitable for: dog, cat, ferret, turtle, lizard, human
Medium: 15–45 minutes
½ cup (125 g) cooked meat (yesterday’s roast, without the bones, works well)
Chopped parsley and sage
½ cup (125 ml) stock
2 Tbsp (30 g) flour 4 Tbsp (60 g) dried breadcrumbs
1 egg Extra flour
1 Tbsp (14 g) olive oil
Mince the meat finely. Mix in saucepan with flour, herbs, and stock. Stir over medium heat until thick. Allow to cool, then form teaspoon-sized amounts into balls. Roll in flour. Dip into the beaten egg. Roll in breadcrumbs. Fry in a little olive oil.
Serve When cooled.
These little meatballs are easy to transport and are great to take along as treats for your dog if you are going out together. Cats also love them, especially if you add a little fresh grated parmesan to the breadcrumbs.
