turkey truffettes for dogs

Looking or a way to involve your dog in this year’s Thanksgiving festivities? He’ll love these delicious Turkey Truffettes!

 When making Turkey Truffettes – and any recipe, for that matter – choose organic ingredients whenever possible!


  • 1-1/2 cups whole grain flour of your choice, or a pseudo grain, like quinoa and teff
  • 2 tablespoons fresh oregano or 1 tablespoon dried oregano
  • 1 garlic clove, finely minced or grated (optional)
  • 1 whole egg
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, finely minced or 1 tablespoon dried parsley (Curly or flat parsley can be used.)
  • 2 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup turkey stock/broth
  • 1/4 cup fresh mashed tomato (Canned tomatoes can also be used.)


Cover cookie sheet with parchment paper.  Separate egg white from yolk.  Put egg white aside, along with parmesan cheese.

In a blender or mixer or food processor, combine the yolk of the egg, garlic (optional), parsley, oregano, turkey stock/broth, and mashed tomato.  Add flour and mix very well.  The mixture will begin to pull away from the wall the bowl.

Turn the ball out onto a counter or cutting board that has been sprinkled with flour.  Knead the ball several times until it becomes dough-like.  Form truffles, and place on parchment covered baking sheet.

Bake in preheated oven for 1/2 hour.  Turn oven down to 200F degrees.

Remove truffles from oven.  Beat egg white until it is foamy.  Brush truffles with egg white and sprinkle with parmesan.

Return truffles to a 200F degree oven for 30 minutes.  Remove from oven.  Cool before serving.  These truffettes will keep well in the fridge or freezer.
