 Turkey Balls for Dogs

Doggie Christmas Dinner -- Turkey Balls


Note: The prep time does not allow for the making of the dough and the ready time does not allow for the cooling down period. Also the serving size and nutritional information depends upon the size of your pet. These have been calculated for a medium sized dog. Chicken can replace the turkey. 


You can obtain the calcium either by crushing a calcium tablet or from egg shells.  Wash the shells and bake in the oven at 150F/gas mark 2 for 30 minutes.  When cold, pulverise in a food processor or mortar and pestle.


These are particularly good for older dogs. Another special on the menu at our luxury dog resort.

250 g   bread or pizza dough  
1/4 cup   turkey broth  
2 tsp   whole wheat flour  
3/4 cup   turkey  
1 cup   mixed vegetables  
1/4 tsp   garlic powder  
1   egg, beaten  
1/2 cup   cheddar cheese, shredded  
1/2 cup   sesame seeds  
1/2 tsp   calcium  
Roll out the dough and cut into 3 inches circles with cookie cutter.
In a saucepan, combine the broth and flour, stirring until flour is dissolved and mixture thickens.
Add the turkey, veggies, and garlic powder. Cook until mixture is heated through. Let cook a bit.
Spoon one to two teaspoonfuls of the turkey mixture onto each circle. Fold up the sides and pinch shut. Roll into a ball shape.
Mix the cheese and sesame seeds in a small bowl. Dip each ball into the beaten egg and roll or sprinkle each ball with the cheese/sesame seed mixture. Arrange the balls on a cookies sheet.
Cook in a preheated 375 degree oven for 10-15 minutes, until they are golden brown. Let cool. Store in the refrigerator.
