I have read many articles and consulted several books on feeding the dog and in some advise to avoid potatoes because of the high percentage of solanine that contain. This substance is harmful even for us humans if taken in large quantities and there are those who prefer to avoid them in the diet of their dog. The solanine, however, concentrates largely in the peel and also greatly reduces if the potatoes are well cooked, especially if boiled. My Veterineario also assured me that boiled potatoes are even recommended, because they are read and hearty in a healthy way. So I present my potato and pumpkin croquettes, tasty and irresistible!
It is really simple, I wanted to add a bit of pumpkin because of the season-I used it in the pumpkin Rolls-and to give more flavor but you can omit it. In fact, you can aromatize the potato and pumpkin croquettes with chopped parsley or rosemary. Freshly baked you will smell it and I strongly recommend you to taste it yourself: a goodness that you do not expect! Courage then, peel vegetables in the hand and prepare the potato croquettes and pumpkin!
