Clean Out The Fridge Loaf


2 pounds ground beef (original recipe says beef, pork, chicken, turkey or veal ground or chopped)
1/4 c rye flour
1/4 c barley flour
1/2 c oatmeal (original recipe 1 c bread crumbs)
1 large egg

2 cloves peeled garlic

For the two cups of cooked vegetables, hubby used fresh carrots and fresh broccoli stalks cooked in extra chicken broth along with the vegetable flakes, garlic and salt-free Spike.

After this, bake in a preheated 350º oven for 45 minutes to 1 hour.

The loaf lifts right out when you use this pan, and the excess grease stays in the bottom.


Hubby bought this book: The Dog Ate It: Cooking for Yourself and Your Four-Legged Friends which contains recipes that are fit for humans and dogs at the same meal. Now, those of you that read this blog may know that our pooch, Max, is extremely spoiled. He does each PetFresh at least once per day, but his other two meals are people food. So, hubby figured he would give this book a try. The recipe above is based on one in this book.

  1. Sounds good! Looks good! How did Max & All like it?

  2. OMG that dog is spoiled. My vet told me no to any kind of people food for Bridgette. I was really mad, I was taking carrots, chicken, some broccili, cooking it till tender then mixing it together and giving it to her. The vet said her delicate stomach won’t tolerate people food and it just is not good for them. I tried to explain about wild dogs in Africa eat meat, people too, we are meat, but he would have none of it.

    I actually got my frig cleaned out on Saturday and Sunday. Yes it took two days, I bought it six years ago and this is the first time I have cleaned it completely. I think I have mentioned my hatred of any thing that has to do with housework. I found terrible things in there. A bottle of barbeque sauce that was over two years expired, bad milk, Starbuck drinks almost two years old. I would say it was time. Sunday I washed it all and it is beautiful. I don’t understand how one person can make such a mess. I will have to have a talk with myself. Next I have to clean the oven, UGHHHHHH!!! Any volunteers???

    • Yeah, Max is spoiled!

      I am surprised your vet told you that… usually boiled chicken is recommended for a doggie with a delicate stomach. Guess he isn’t into a raw diet either, huh? So what does he recommend, Candie?

      I will pass on the refrigerator cleaning offer. Thank you anyway. I hate doing ours. Hate. It.

  3. You really feed your dog 3 meals a day? Wow no wonder Max is not real interested in eating, that is a lot of meals for a dog! I too have dogs with sensitive stomachs but I cut out all people food for them instead of cooking for them. That works for us.

    • Yeah, we have to – he has little dog syndrome in many ways, including food intake. His stomach can only hold so much. Once he gets going, he starts to gobble (we insert dry to slow him down). Unlike a big dog, he can’t keep it down, so he’ll throw-up. Three small meals work best, although some days he decides to only eat twice.
