Made with love—The Honest Kitchen's Grain Free Beef Recipe, that is—and ground beef, these bite-sized treats are grain and gluten-free. Plus, they include green peas, which are a good source of the B vitamin Thiamin, phosphorous, and potassium. Both parsley and rosemary are safe spices to use when it comes to feeding your dog. Parsley helps freshen your dog's breath and also has vitamin C, K, and B, carotenoids, iron and limonene (an oil that kills bad mouth bacteria).

If you're planning a cook out, this recipe easily transfers to the grill. We recommend wrapping them in foil for best results.
Heat gas or charcoal grill. Cut 2 (18x12-inch) sheets of heavy-duty foil.
Combine ingredients as described above.
Divide beef balls evenly between the two sheets of foil and wrap securely by pulling up all four sides of the foil. Once wrapped, pierce the top of each foil pack once or twice with fork to vent steam.
Place packs on grill seam sides up over medium heat. Cover grill and cook 20 to 25 minutes or until they are thoroughly cooked and no longer pink in center.
Remove packs from grill and be sure to let them cool thoroughly before serving them to your pup.
