Recipes for Success

A couple of days ago I posted a dog biscuit recipe. Lori responded with a great idea - and another biscuit recipe which leads me to launch a new category - Recipes for Success. Timely too, with all the news about contaminated dog food.

And so, without further ado, I give you today's recipe sent to me by Lori. She did not title it, but I'll call it Tuna Delight! According to Lori, it makes a great "high-value" treat (the kind of treat used when a dog is struggling with a skill).

Tuna Delight

2 - 6 oz cans of tuna* - do not drain
2 eggs
1 - 1.5 c flour
2 t. garlic powder
2 - 3 T parmesan cheese

Liquify tuna, eggs, garlic powder, and parmesan cheese with food processor or blender. Mix in flour a little at a time until mixture reaches a thick cake batter. Spread in greased 9" X 13" pan. It will be about 1/4" thick. Bake at
350° for 15 minutes. It will be like putty. Cut into small pieces.

*use low salt chunk lite tuna to avoid potential issues with salt or mercury.

If you have a favorite dog food recipe to share, I'm fishing for more. Please e-mail me and I would be happy to post in the blog. I thank you in advance for all your contributions.

I think my cats would like that, too. I'll have to try it when I get home. I read somewhere that the woman who published a cookbook of recipes for pet food and treats saw her sales skyrocket after the problems with pet food contamination were publicized.
