Hi Everyone
I wanted to share the two receipes below. One is for Dog Treats and the other is for Cat Treats in case you might have a friend or family member of the feline variety. Mom has made these for us and they are yummu.

Holy Mackerel Cat Treats
½ can mackerel, drained and crumbled 1 egg, beaten
1 C whole grain bread crumbs 1 t brewer’s yeast (optional)
1 T vegetable oil

Mix all ingredients thoroughly. Drop by quarter teaspoons, 1” apart, onto a greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 8 minutes. Cool and store in an air tight container. Can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 3 weeks or stored in the freezer for up to 1 year.

NOTE: Brewer’s yeast is an excellent source of essential fatty acids and B-Complex vitamins for a glossy coat. It is also known to help with flea infestations.

Canine Treats
1 1/4 c whole wheat flour ½ c hot water
½ c oatmeal 1/3 c oil
1 egg, beaten 1 T chicken or beef bouillon
1 t sugar ¾ c dry powdered milk
¼ c yellow cornmeal

In a large bowl mix all ingredients until well blended. Roll onto a flour surface and cut with a cookie cutter in the shape of a dog bone. Microwave at 50% power for 5 to 10 minutes turning every 2 minutes. OR bake in a conventional oven at 350 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes for 15 to 10 minutes until dry. Yields approximately 3 dozen treats.

Cat treat recipe -

"Cheese N Veggies"

1/2 cup low fat hard cheese grated
1/4 cup butter
1 small jar pureed carrots (baby food)
1 small jar pureed mixed vegetables (baby food)
1 cup rye flour (extra might be needed)
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 tsp. celery flakes
1/4 cup chicken broth

Melt butter and cheese in a saucepan and remove from heat. Add garlic powder, celery flakes, baby food and flour. Stir until well blended. Add enough broth to form a ball of dough. You may need a bit more or less than the amount noted in the recipe. Chill dough in the freezer for 1/2 hour or so. Ensure that the dough is covered with kitchen wrap so it doesn't dry out.

Remove from freezer and roll dough on a floured board to 1/4" thickness. If it's too sticky, add a bit more flour and try again. Place on a non stick cookie sheet and bake in a 350 degree oven for 30 minutes, or until golden brown. Cool before storing in a sealed container.

Dog treat recipe -

"Apple Cinnamon Drops"

1 Large Apple
1/4 C Honey
1/2 C Water
1/2 Tea. Cinnamon
1 C Oatmeal
1 1/2 C Wheat Flour
1/4 C Wheat Flour

Preheat oven to 350. Core, slice and mince the apple (use a food processor if you have one). In a large bowl, combine the minced apple bits, honey, water, cinnamon, and oatmeal. Gradually blend in the wheat flour, adding enough to form a stiff dough.

Spoon the dough by rounded teaspoon onto ungreased baking sheets, spacing about 2 inches (5cm) apart. Using the bottom of a glass dipped in the wheat flour (to prevent sticking), flatten each spoonful of dough into a circle. Adjust the size of the drops based on how big a treat you like to feed your dog.

Bake for 30 minutes. Remove from oven and flip each cookie to brown evenly on both sides. Reduce oven temperature to 325. Return to oven and bake for an additional 30 minutes.
