Healthy Dog Treat Recipe

Turkey/Chicken Meatloaf Treats: (very easy; Kathy’s favorite)

-1 lb ground turkey (or chicken), drained of excess liquid
(Don’t use high-quality lean meat; it will make the treats too crumbly treats. I use Jennie-O “Festive” ground turkey; comes frozen in 1-lb logs; located in the supermarket freezer section next to breakfast sausages; ~$1.89/lb)
- 1 ¼ cup bread crumbs (A friend replaces bread crumbs with oatmeal for her wheat-sensitive dog.)
- 2 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese
- 1 teaspoon garlic (optional)

Mix dry ingredients, then use your hands to mix in the ground poultry thoroughly. Roll into three logs about 8” long, 1 – 1.5” in diameter. Bake on cookie sheet at 325 degrees for 45 - 50 minutes. Cool. Cut into small bits. Refrigerate. (Also, you can freeze whole logs.)

I microwave the cut-up bits, spread on a paper towel, on low power for ~3 minutes to dry them out. That way, they’ll stay fresh longer in a bait bag, out of the fridge for several hours while I’m training.
