Thanksgiving Turkey Treats

Face it. You are probably going to have more turkey leftovers than you will know what to do with so why not make something for the pups?

When you can't stand another bite of turkey, you can mix up these turkey dog treats for your canine buddies. They'll love them!

Thanksgiving Turkey Treats

2 c. cooked turkey, minced
4 tsp. grated lowfat cheese
1 tbsp. fresh parsley, chopped
2 eggs, beaten
2 c. whole-wheat flour
2 tbsp. brewer's yeast
2 tbsp. safflower oil (or vegetable oil if you don't have safflower)

Directions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix the turkey, cheese and parsley together. Pour beaten eggs over turkey mixture. Add flour, yeast and oil. Stir.

Drop into small lumps onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for about 20 minutes or until brown and firm. Store in refrigerator.

Makes about 2 dozen treats.
