Christmas Meatball Recipe

Plate full of meatballs

(not just for the holidays)

These meatballs are something simple to make for a treat for your dog. I also encourage making these for very high-value food for training!



  • 8 oz ground turkey or beef
  • ½ cup canned pumpkin or sweet potato puree (try Nummy Tum Tum)
  • ½ cup Spinach (chopped)
  • ¼ cup Cranberries
  • 1 egg


  • Preheat the oven to 350 F
  • Chop the cranberries and spinach finely.
  • In a bowl, mix all ingredients together and roll into 1-inch meatballs.
  • Place on a lined baking sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes. Allow the meatballs to cool completely before serving them to your pooch.
  • Can be fed as a treat or as part of your dog’s regular meal.
  • Store in the fridge for up to 3 days, or freeze for up to a month.
