This recipe was given to me the other day by my friend Jennifer who is an animal lover/rescuer. It has a texture like a meatloaf and she bakes it in a 13 x 9 dish. I decided to try it in muffin tins for individual servings. It is a wonderfully nutritious snack that is easy to make. And perfect for a Christmas treat!
Ground Turkey Dog Treats
1 sweet potato
1 lb ground turkey
5 tbsp uncooked old fashioned oats
1/4 tsp garlic powder
Cook sweet potato in the microwave for about 5 minutes. Let it cool and slip off the skin. Mash up and combine the remaining ingredients, using your hands if necessary. Place in a greased baking dish and bake at 350 for 1 hour. If you use muffin tins, bake 20 minutes for mini tins and 30 minutes for regular muffin tins.
After the sweet potato is cooked, combine ingredients.
I used a smaller tin for my Yorkie and a larger one for my Izzy.
Mmmm. They smell good, but don't eat them. They are for dogs. And our dogs LOVE them.
Keep refrigerated. They won't last long.
