Our Butternut Sausage Bites Family Recipe

High Fibre Delicious Butternut Sausage Bites
These sausage bites are fibre-filled and very very tasty for even the most discerning of dogs. The blend of ingredients chosen to make up the protein pack are prebiotic nutrients to support a healthy gut microbiome as well as being anti-oxidant rich and naturally anti-inflammatory with soothing natural ginger.
Ideal for any dogs that are on the heavier side and need high-nutrient, high fibre treats; or dogs with anal gland issues as all the ingredients help to correct any digestive imbalances to keep all bottoms healthy and tails wagging for more!
Preparation time: 40 minutes
Servings: Makes enough to feed a 15kg dog for 1 week if fed as 50% of the diet
- Turn on the oven to 160C
- Cut a red apple into quarters. Leave the skin on, remove the pips and grate the apple and leave on the side to brown slightly
- Chop the butternut squash into small squares. Everything will go orange from all the healthy beta-carotene! Weigh out 250g and freeze the rest or use it in a delicious curry for you!
- Boil the chopped butternut pieces in a big pot with 150ml milk alternative for 20 minutes. We use oat milk.
- Once cooked, carefully mash the butternut in the pot with a potato masher
- Add the 2 tbsp tahini paste, grated apple and 500g natural ginger protein pack contents and mix
- Once cool, the mixture can be rolled into long sausages and then sliced into bite-sized pieces
- These bites make ideal tablet dispensers as you can make small holes before baking in the centre of these sections for placing tablets
- Bake for 15 minutes on a lined baking tray and if wanting a crunchier bite, leave in a very low oven for a few hours
- When the butternut sausage bites are cool, keep them in the fridge in a crinkly packet familiar to your pet to retain the nutrients in the ingredients
