How to Make Your Own Blue Dog Food or Food Saver Blue Dog food and food savers are both very good things.
The key is to make them yourself.
You will need to cook up the food, which you can use to make meals for yourself or others, and you can make the food saving too.
I’ve got some good recipes for blue dog foods, and I recommend you give them a try if you’re interested.
Ingredients for Blue Dog and Food Saving Ingredients for the blue dog: Blue dog flour, sugar, yeast, salt, pepper, and spices.
Ingredients and Equipment for the food saving: 1 gallon milk, 1 gallon vegetable broth, 3-4 cups chicken broth, 1/4 cup water, 3 cups flour, 1 tablespoon salt, 1 teaspoon baking powder, and 1 teaspoon sugar.
Instructions Add the flour, water, and chicken broth to a large bowl and stir to combine.
In a separate bowl, combine the yeast, sugar and salt.
Pour the mixture into the milk, vegetable broth and water.
Mix well and let sit for a few minutes.
Pour into the refrigerator.
When the meal is done, add the baking powder and sugar.
Stir to combine, and add the flour mixture into a bowl and mix until it’s well mixed.
Form into 1-inch balls and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
Recipe Notes If you are using a meat thermometer, you will want to add the meat to the refrigerator as soon as possible to prevent the meat from sticking to the pan.
