Beefaloaf Meatloaf Dog Food Recipe

When you think of comfort food, good, ol’ fashioned meatloaf has to come to mind. Wouldn’t it be great if you could offer your dog the same kind of goodness in his bowl at dinner time? Now you can – presenting: my Beefaloaf Meatloaf Dog Food Recipe. I just added some vegetables I had in the fridge (and an apple I had left over from my apple treat recipe) and viola… yummy meals that will last a few weeks. I won’t feed these to Oscar every day. I will give him the meatloaf every fourth day to vary his diet. The rest will go into the freezer until I need to use it.


1 lbs. lean ground beef

2 eggs

1 ½ cups rolled oats (you can use gluten free oats if you want)

1 ½ cups grated mixed vegetables (use your dog’s favorite veggies – I used broccoli, carrots and apple)

½ cup cottage cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Hand-mix all ingredients in a bowl until combined thoroughly. Press evenly into a loaf pan.
  3.  Bake for 40 minutes.
  4. Refrigerate or freeze in slices for easy serving.

    Even as only an “every few days” meal, I would really recommend adding a calcium source and a vitamin supplement (like Soulfood for Dogs or Tiny Tabs vitamins) on the days he gets this! It sounds yummy though. Is it wrong that I might eat it?

    • What a great idea! Thanks for passing it along. And yes – you go ahead and share a slice with your pups!
