I recently posted some recipes for dog treats - possible Christmas gifts for man's best friend. If your best friend happens to be a feline, however, you may want to make him or her the following:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Mix all the dry ingredients in a large bowl. In another bowl, mash the mackerel into small pieces. Mix in the oil and water. Add the mackerel mixture to the dry ingredients and mix thoroughly. The dough is tough, so use your hands. Roll dough out to about 1/4 inch thickness and cut into 1/4 inch bits, using a knife or pizza cutter. Mound the bits onto greased cookie sheets and bake for 25 minutes. During baking, occasionally toss the bits with two wooden spoons, so they brown evenly. Turn the heat off and allow the treats to cool thoroughly before removing and storing in an airtight container in the refrigerator. This recipe freezes very well for longer storage.
Thanks! I added a little tuna and tried it on my grandma's cats--They loved them!!! (My 9 year old cat does not like any food but kitten food, people food and tuna)
Great recipe--I can add little things in all over the place and base many different gourmet treats on this recipe or make it plain which is also nutritious and delicious!
