Meat and Potato Balls



Yesterday, mom made the Pioneer Woman's potato skins, and that left her with lots of potato filling and nothing in particular to use it for, so she knew she had to figure out how to  make it into treats for us.  With the addition of some ground beef and canned tomato we got a tasty meat and potato treat that we really enjoyed:

 Meat and Potato Balls

3 cups cooked mashed white potatoes (or you could use sweet potatoes)
8 ounces, 1 cup, cooked ground beef, drained
1 15 oz can diced tomatoes
3/4 cup brown rice flour (or all purpose flour)
1/4 cup wheat germ
2 eggs, beaten

Preheat the oven to 300 degrees and line two cookie sheets with parchment paper.

Stir all the ingredients together in a large bowl until well mixed.  Drop by generous spoon fulls onto the lined cookie sheets and bake one hour.  Serve to a meat and potato loving dog:



With these ingredients there is something 1950s about these treats and it got mom thinking about her favorite MST3k short, A Date With Your Family: watch and enjoy


Today is our pal Pip's birthday (and his human sister's birthday) make sure you drop by to wish them a special day.

  3. You've got a great mom. I might actually try these treats for Sampson and Delilah. I'm a very lazy baker when it comes to treats for the dogs. :-)
