Recipe of the Week :: Lazy Day Loaf

Lazy Day Loaf_Recipe of the Week_Friends of the Animal Village

A Perfectly easy-to-make (easier to eat!) dinner when you don't feel like lifting a paw. It's the simple answer for those days when you get home, you're dog-tired, you realize you forgot to pick up dog food, and every stomach in the house is grumbling. Keep in mind, these weekly recipes are not only all natural, but they are perfect bites for you and the dog in your life to share (just use separate bowls!).

Ingredients checklist:

  • 1 pound ground turkey

  • 2 eggs

  • 1/8 cup skim milk

  • 1 1/2 cups bread crumbs

  • 10 ounces frozen copped spinach, thawed and drained

  • 4 ounces low-fat Cheddar cheese, cubed

Turkey and cheese and spinach, oh my! This is bound to be a family favorite—for those sitting at the table, as well as those waiting patiently for scraps below.

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.

  2. Mix together meat, eggs, milk, and bread crumbs.

  3. Put half of the mixture in a greased loaf pan.

  4. Layer spinach and cheese in the middle, and top with the other half of the meat mixture.

  5. Bake for 1 1/2 hours or until done. Store in the refrigerator.

And that, my friend, is the Lazy Day Loaf.
