Since this is supposed to be our Holiday Recipe we figured it really should be for the entire family but be something your dog can have a bite or two of or even a whole piece of their very own. I have been in the kitchen for the last several hours making these or at least some of these and figured I should share. As these were made originally for a party last weekend with enough to last for an event tonight there was only some of these flavors left. The leftover from the Guacamole Latkes was made into a loaf last night but the avocados has turned black and from what I was told no longer tasted very good so the dogs got to have a few bites last night and Whisper my parents dog is waiting for it to get to room temperature so she can have the rest as part of her dinner tonight. The girls will probably get a small bite or two each of the Guacamole just as a treat. I know they would love the sweet potato ones (there was very little left of this flavor so they couldn’t get a taste) and liked the small bite of the spinach potato they had earlier. If you are making this specifically for your dogs and not for sharing with them you should leave out the onion in all of the recipes.
Cajun Sweet Potato Latkes
2 large Sweet Potatoes peeled
2 tbsp Canjun Spice Blend
1/3 cup of parsley
1tbsp Masa Corn Meal
whisk eggs, spice, and parsley add in grated sweet potato add the corn flour. Form and fry in oil until golden brown. (If this batch is specifically for your dogs feel free to use a non stick pan and use very little oil)
2 pounds Yukon Gold Potatoes (unpeeled)
2 tsp sea salt
1/2 red onion mined and stir fried until brown
2 small jalapeno peppers seeded and finely chopped
1 1/2 cans of black beans rinsed and drained
1 tbsp Masa cornmeal
Mash avocado add cooled onion, jalapeno and beans. Mix in eggs and add salt and combine with grated potatoes add the corn flour. Form and fry until golden brown. (You must use this mixture the same day or the avocado will go bad).
Potato Spinach Latkes
2 pounds of potato peeled
1 medium onion minced and stir fried
1 1/2 tsp salt
1/2 bag of frozen spinach thawed and drained
Stir fry the onion until clear add the spinach, salt, pepper, and garlic powder and cook until the liquid is out of the spinach. Take off flame and let cool. For this batch you can make the potatoes like you would for mashed potatoes don’t worry if they are still a bit chunky you can mash them more while mixing everything together. Add in the spinach mixture, eggs, and corn meal. Form and fry until golden brown.
