Turkey Bake Tempter

Ask your dog to sit for this classic turkey-and-veg meal that’s so simple to prepare yet so impressive when cut into bite-sized mini bakes.

Makes 10 to 12 portions
Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 40-45 minutes

500 g (1 lb) minced turkey
150 g (5 oz) dried breadcrumbs, made from wheat and gluten free bread
1 egg, beaten
1 sweet potato, cooked and mashed
150 g (5 oz) carrots, thinly sliced
100 g (31/2 oz) green beans, thinly sliced
1 tablespoon chopped sage
3 tablespoons homemade chicken stock or water
1 tablespoon brewer’s yeast

1. Mix all the ingredients in a large mixing bowl until well combined. Transfer the mixture to a deep 25 x 30-cm (10 x 12-inch) ovenproof dish and level out with the back of a spoon. Bake in a preheated oven, 180°C (350°), Gas Mark 4, for 40-45 minutes until firm. Remove from the oven and leave to cool.

2. Cut the turkey bake into 5-cm (2-inch) squares and store for up to 5 days in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Serve cool or cold as your dog cannot digest hot food and it can cause damage to the lining of his stomach.
