Healthy Dog-Treat Recipe
Meatloaf Treats: (very easy; Kathy’s favorite)
1 lb ground beef or turkey, hi-fat (15-20%), drained of excess liquid
(Don’t use lean meat; the treats will be too crumbly.)
1 beaten raw egg
¼ cup grated parmesan cheese
In a large bowl, mix together the egg & cheese, then use your hands to mix in the ground meat thoroughly. Divide into three equal portions. Roll each into a log about 8” long, 1.5” in diameter. Bake in a shallow pan at 350 degrees for ~40 minutes. Cool. Cut into small cubes. Refrigerate. (You can also freeze whole logs.)
I microwave the cubes, spread out on a paper towel, on low power for ~4 minutes to dry them out. These are safe to leave in my bait bag – out of the fridge – for an hour or two while training.
