  • 1 cup cooked turkey, shredded
  • 1 cup sweet potatoes, cooked and mashed
  • 1/2 cup carrots, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup peas
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil (optional)


  1. Cook the Turkey: Start by cooking the turkey if it’s not already cooked.* You can use leftovers from your holiday feast or cook a small turkey breast. Shred the turkey into small, bite-sized pieces.
  2. Prepare Sweet Potatoes: Peel and chop the sweet potatoes into small cubes. Boil or steam them until they are soft and mashable. Mash the sweet potatoes in a bowl.
  3. Chop Carrots: Finely chop the carrots into small pieces. You can either cook them along with the sweet potatoes or leave them raw for added crunch.
  4. Cook Peas: If you’re using fresh peas, cook them briefly until they are tender. If using frozen peas, thaw them.
  5. Combine Ingredients: In a mixing bowl, combine the shredded turkey, mashed sweet potatoes, chopped carrots, and peas. Mix them well to create a colorful and nutritious blend.
    Note: You can also serve them separately for a fun dog-friendly thanksgiving meal
  6. Add a Healthy Twist: Drizzle a tablespoon of olive oil over the mixture. Olive oil adds a healthy dose of fats and a tasty touch that your pup will love.
  7. Serve in Style: Spoon the Turkey and Sweet Potato Mash into your pup’s bowl. You can get creative and shape them into small patties or serve it as is.
  8. Cool Before Serving: Allow the mixture to cool down to room temperature before serving it to your furry friend. This ensures a safe and enjoyable dining experience.
  9. Watch the Tail Wag: Present this delicious and nutritious meal to your dog, and get ready for the tail-wagging approval. The combination of turkey and sweet potatoes is not only tasty but also provides essential nutrients for your pup’s well-being.


  • *Always ensure that ingredients used are safe for dogs; avoid seasoning with salt, onions, garlic, and other harmful additives.
