The Best Homemade Dog Food Recipes You'll Ever Try

 DIY Homemade Dog Food

The world of dog foods has drastically changed this past year due to the coronavirus. This, sadly, was a very hard pill to swallow for many people. How can you feed your family, when you don’t know where or how to find any food? Where do I get all these things you need if you can’t afford them?

Dog Food Recipes

When our country faced this major crisis in the spring and summer of 2020, we had to make changes. We decided that the only way to have two meals every day would be with homemade dog food. Our first few days became extremely stressful as we didn't know how to make the meals and clean up after the dogs left. It felt like a whole new challenge: cleaning out the bags, dishes, and all of the extra items we hadn't used since the beginning of quarantine: our old toys, treats, snacks, bowls, spoons, and even some boxes were broken into. To make matters worse, I hadn't gotten over the fact that my wife actually got sick from something she had prepared. Luckily, by then, everything was fairly manageable so it wasn't too bad considering you just needed enough supplies to put it all back together each night!

At least, we did. By the end of August, I was able to start gathering recipes that I thought would work well with the ingredients out at home. As much as it may seem odd, in reality, we weren't exactly short on time... and thankfully, we discovered more helpful resources every day as we grew the list. There were tons of recipes like chicken noodle soup or rice and gravy. After a handful of meal ideas, we came up with a few basic concepts that worked well. For example, one recipe involved shredded carrots and cheese that also involved an assortment of vegetables that people usually wouldn't think about. Another was simply oats, mashed potatoes, milk, beef, and eggs, which we used to enjoy every day without it having such an impact on our mental health. Other ideas included making pasta sauce, sausage bites, scrambled eggs, baked chips, pork belly burgers, garlic bread, egg omelets, pancakes, chocolate cake, and peanut butter toast.

Our final product may not look like anything to eat but it sure did taste delicious! All of our ingredients were pre-prepared (some were even frozen to save on time) and then added to freshwater before being served. If you think these are weird recipes you probably won't like these as much as most other recipes, but they are just what we needed on a daily basis so we could enjoy the comfort that comes from eating our own meals!

As long as there are no special occasions that you need a "food" (because then your sanity will plummet and you'll end up starving because there's nowhere else to go), grab a couple of items that look like these, or even something simple like shredded carrots and cheese. What's better than that?!

1. Pour diced carrots or spinach into small bowls or casserole dish, add shredded carrots or spinach, shredded egg, salt, and pepper/salt powder in a medium-size bowl and cover with boiling water. Cook until the veggies thicken up and expand. Stir onion, onions with shredded carrots or spinach, and garlic until combined, then blend until smooth. Remove mixture from heat and set aside. Heat 2 cups of water in a large spray pan over high heat on low to boil then place chopped onion mixture in it to thicken until thickened. Add diced carrots/spinach to the mixture and cook until both vegetables brown a little. Let the mixture cool down quickly (it should still be warm). Store in 4 cups containers in the refrigerator until needed. Mix shredded carrots or spinach with minced onions, cooked vegetables or minced meats, and remaining water to make another batch of thickening the mixture. Add cheese, crushed onions, or other toppings into the thickened mixture you made to thicken the mixture and repeat the process. Repeat until desired consistency is achieved. When ready to serve, top each item with shredded onions. Serve immediately or refrigerate until needed.
