If you are doing the latter do you mind sharing your recipies here.
Ora, this recipe is from my obedience friend Irma, who got it from a conformation friend. These are a big hit with Dexter, and freeze well. Other than these, I cook beef or chicken for all of us in the slow cooker.
The note about removing the bones is from Irma, not me. I buy the wild canned salmon with the bones and crush them up with my fingers and keep them in, as they are a good source of calcium.
1 cup canned salmon - approx. 15 oz - my preference is to drain the juice off and
remove the spinal column bones.
1 cup of rice baby cereal
Combine all in a bowl and mix thoroughly.
Roll out on a cookie sheet to a thickness of approx. 1/4 inch. These stick to the
cookie sheet, so I spray it with Pam first.
Score the rolled out mixture in approximately 1 inch squares
Bake in 350 - 375 oven for approx 20 - 25 minutes, until browned. They can be baked
longer if a crispy treat is preferred.
Once out of the oven and cooled, I cut along the scored lines and freeze the treats.
When I am ready to use them, I take the frozen squares and cut them into 4ths - I
prefer small treat sizes.
The recipe can be adjusted to preferences - other flavored baby cereal can be used,
and tuna can be used (adjusted for size of the container of course.)
