Doggy Treats - Muttballs


I took presents when I went a visiting this weekend. Dogs are much needed companions on the farm. Although my poor pup passed away a few years ago I still love dogs. Scooby Doo next door is my pal. I went to our local Pup and Kitty bakery and found this cool book of recipes for treats by Stephanie Mehanna. I thought I would share this easy recipe I adapted from hers. It was a big hit. The hounds kept an eye on me all weekend.

Muttballs

1 pound ground or minced chicken
5 ounces of dried bread crumbs or crushed crackers
1 tablespoon dried oregano
1 egg

Mix all the ingredients in a bowl. Roll into 1 inch balls and place on a greased baking pan.
Bake in a preheated oven at 350 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown.
Remove from oven. Cool. Store in an air tight container in the refrigerator.
These can also be frozen for up to six weeks.

Murphy likes those, too. There is a lady that sells little bags of something very similar to this recipe at Murphy's Doggie Day Care.
They have them up on the counter, for sale and all the dogs try to get their sniffers right up there like they are pointing them out to their owners. lol :)Bea

I'm going to make some of these asap! But I was wondering one thing... is the chicken already cooked or are you using raw chicken and then cooking it when they're in ball form in the oven?

Just had to come back to tell you that I made these muttballs and my poochies absolutely LOVE them (so does my hubby LOL). I was wondering if it would be okay if I post this recipe on my blog (of course I'll link back to your blog, if that's okay also) Thank you for posting this.
