|Well if you cook the food then you cannot feed the bones so you might as well make food with boneless meat! Turkey and beef are the most common ground meats but most any meat can be found ground or a butcher can grind a cut for you.
It is easier to get the nutrition in if you can put in some liver but baby steps. Try cooking 2 pounds of ground meat with half a pound of pureed low calorie veggies and 1 tsp of powdered eggshell for calcium [drop the egg in as well] today and maybe in a couple weeks try liver.
Figure 2% of your dog's ideal weight as a daily ration [a 50 pound dog gets 1 pound of meaty stuff per day] and feed more or less depending on how your dog does NOT whether or not they act hungry!
This is only a starting point, keep reading up on feeding fresh food and improve the recipe as you go. Monica Segal, Lew Olson and Steve Brown have excellent books out on feeding fresh to dogs. See this page and especially check out the book reviews. http://www.dogaware.com/diet/homemade.html
