Doggie Treats Courtesy of Gabby

Today on OFL's, we have been talking about imported pet treats, and the dangers of them. For a long time now, I have been making most of Zora's treats and she loves them! Why, I don't know because they are sort of bland and tasteless to me. Of course I'm not a dog either. LOL! So, for those that would like to give it a try, here's the recipe:

Doggie Treats

2 cups all purpose flour
1 egg
1/2 cup of frozen spinach, thawed and squeezed to remove the liguid
Chicken or Beef Broth ( or homemade stock)

Heat oven to 250 degrees. Beat the egg with about a tablepoon of water, and stir in the spinach. Pour this mixture into the flour and mix (it will be very thick at this point. Gradually add tiny bits of the broth, until it can be formed into a dough ball. Roll it out to about 1/2 inch thick on a floured board. Cut the treats into the proper size for your dog. Place on a cookie sheet that has been sprayed with non-stick spray. Bake until they are pretty hard, like dog biscuits you buy. You want them very crunchy as this seems to be what dogs like. Let cool and store in zip-lock bags. I keep them in the fridge and they last a long time. You can vary the flavor by adding other veggies. Zora absolultely loves the ones made with grated carrot! As far as I'm concerned this is the safest way to give her a treat. I KNOW what goes in them!

BTW, if you have to taste them, remember only a wee bite! They are not Atkins friendly! LOL!
