Directions Peel, wash, & chop 2 sweet potatoes into a pot. Add water to cover sweet potatoes. Boil over high heat for 20 minutes or until sweet potatoes are soft. Remove from heat and drain.
Brown ground beef. Drain any excess oil. In a bowl, mash together drained sweet potatoes and peanut butter. Pour into a dish and spread. Add ground beef over that. Then top with yogurt. Share with all your doggie friends! ***Note- You can reverse the order and place ground beef in dish first and then potatoes on top. It is up to you.
This is a normal size pumpkin pie that is dog friendly. It is perfect for a Thanksgiving get together with family that has dogs. We have 5 dogs so that is half almost half a pie.
Pie Crust 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour 2 eggs 1 tablespoon olive oil 4 tablespoons water (may need more)
Pie Filling One 15 oz. can pumpkin (Make sure 100% pumpkin not pumpkin pie filling) 3 tablespoons peanut butter (Make sure it doesn’t have sugar substitutes in it.) 1 egg
Directions For pie crust Mix together all ingredients. Use your hands to mix the dough well. If the dough it too dry add a tablespoon of water at a time until the dough is workable (Easy to shape into a ball and knead). If dough gets too wet add a little flour. Use your best judgment. The dogs will love it! Grease pie plate with olive oil. Place ball of dough in pie plate. With hands press the dough into the pie plate until it covers the entire plate. With a fork, poke holes in bottom of crust. You can also crimp the edges with a fork it you want. Place in preheated oven for 10 minutes. Remove after 10 minutes.
For Pie Filling Mix everything together in a mixing bowl. Once pie crust has baked for 10 minutes pour filling into crust. Then return to oven for 30 minutes. Once 30 minutes have passed remove from oven and let cool. Then share with all your doggie friends. For the whipped topping I used Plain Greek Yogurt. I just placed a dollop on each slice of pie. I have 1 dog that can’t do dairy, therefore, I did not put it on the entire pie.
Note – when I make this again I will add a little more water to the crust so it won’t be as crumbly around the edges. I will take more time when pressing the crust into the pie plate to make sure I get all the edges over the lip of the pie plate. The crust is thick and crunchy like a Milkbone dog biscuit. It is easier to cut with knife than with a pie cutter or spatula. If you have a small dog it may help to cut the crust into smaller pieces.
2 large potatoes (or sweet potatoes) 1/2 tablespoon butter 1/4 cup sour cream 1 lb ground chicken or turkey 2 eggs 4 slices of toast
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Slice and boil the potatoes until soft. In a mixing bowl, whisk 2 eggs. Add in ground chicken. Mix together with hands. Crumble toast into smaller pieces and mix into meat mixture. Once mixed well, let rest for a few minutes. The bread will absorb the moisture. Grease a baking dish. Place meat mixture in dish. Bake for 25 – 30 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool.
For the frosting – drain the potatoes. Place in a mixing bowl. Add in butter and sour cream. Smash it all together or mix with a mixer. Remove meat (cake) from dish. Used potatoes as frosting. Add bacon pieces over frosting. Then add milk bones and beef sticks for the candles. Slice and share with all your doggy friends!
