Valentines Love Patties
This recipe uses heart-shaped or other cookie cutters to make pretty treats as a gift for your pooch—or his or her boyfriends or girlfriends—for Valentines Day or other special occasions.
Ingredients
  • 2cups Honest Kitchen Love dog food
  • 2 free range eggs
  • 1cup warm water
  • 1/4cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1/2cup fresh raw ground beef (preferable grass fed)
  • 1/4 grated carrot
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F and grease a large baking sheet.
  2. Hydrate the Love with the warm water in a large mixing bowl and stir thoroughly.
  3. Add in the remaining ingredients to form a thick ”batter.”
  4. Carefully mold the batter into patties and flatten gently using two teaspoons or your hands.
  5. Place the patties on a greased baking sheet.
  6. (Optional) Place a large heart-shaped cookie cutter onto the baking sheet and spoon the mixture into it. Press gently to fill the heart completely and then slide off the cutter to form each patty into a perfect shape for Valentines!
  7. Bake at 350°F for about 30 minutes or until slightly crispy on the outside.
  8. Cool thoroughly before serving; serve whole for larger dogs or break (or slice) for smaller dogs.

Recipe Notes

This recipe calls for The Honest Kitchen Love Dog Food—but you can swap in any Honest Kitchen dog food!

If you don’t have a cookie cutter, it’s also perfectly fine just to cut into bite-sized squares. Really tiny squares are excellent as training treats because they have a good aroma and can be consumed quickly without filling up your dog’s tummy.
