Recipe: Dog Tracks Tuna Melts … with Spinach

Dog Tracks Tuna Melts

dog tracking tuna melts 2 dogtrotting.netTuna isn’t just for kitties. My dog comes running when the can opener zips around a fishy can. I’ve been baking so many pet treats recently, I was inspired to create my own recipe – from scratch.

From tuna juice, actually – that liquid that goes down the sink (or occasionally in the cat’s dish). Because it’s stinky – and dogs love stinky – these weird concoctions were a big hit.

What You Need

½ cup    canned tuna liquid (almost the amount from one can after you’ve made a tuna melt for you)

 ½ cup   water

½ cup    oats

1 cup     whole wheat flour

½ cup    shredded cheddar

½ cup    shredded mozzarella

1/8 cup chopped fresh spinach (left over from your side salad)

Combine all ingredients, except water, in a large bowl. Add water as need to make the mixture doughy and malleable.

Using a soup spoon, drop unrolled balls of mixture onto a baking sheet covered in parchment paper.

Bake at 350F for about 15 minutes.

Yield: 12 treats
