I had a recipe for meatballs I fed my girl Nara. They are made with baby food--cereal, fruit, meat and veggies--all baby foods.
Since there's a bunch of newer people, thought you might want to try this recipe.
This is completely edible by people, in fact it's based on a recipe for toddler meatballs I used to make for my son for when he was a toddler.
1 jar of baby food "meat" chicken, turkey, beef, ham?
1 -2 Tablespoons of a baby food fruit (I use 2nd food bananas)
1-2 Tablespoons of a baby food single vegetable ( I use squash or sweet potatoes)
1+ cup of baby cereal--I use oatmeal because of the rice/arsenic issue
1-2 teaspoons of golden ground flax meal--for heart health and skin
3-4 capsules of Co-Sequin for cats (after age 2 or 3, for joint health--empty the capsules in the mix)
Mix together, it needs to be about the consistency of cookie dough. Add more ingredients as needed.
Drop on a jelly roll pan that has been sprayed with non-stick spray and then wiped off so it's not too thick. I also put down a sheet of aluminum foil.
This is the hard part--roll into "meatballs" about 1/2 teaspoon each. They have to be hand-rolled to get the air pockets out, otherwise they will be hollow.
This makes about 100-140 meatballs.
Bake at 350 degrees for about 15-20 minutes. You want them to be "set" not squishy.
Cool completely. Freeze in an appropriate container AND LABEL!
I keep about 10-12 in a container in the refrigerator and thaw as needed.
To feed, I kind of crush them up into kibble size bites.
I found a recipe for tiny hedige pancakes- you just mash up half a banana and an egg (I used a hand-beater to make sure it wouldn't be lumpy) and cook it like a pancake. My hedgehog wouldn't eat them, but she doesn't eat anything :/
If your hedgie likes bananas, he should eat them!
