I have another treat recipe although its not really baking!

Hoggy meatballs!
Can also be used as hoggy cake.

Makes about 145g of mix
Makes 16 small dog meat balls - weighing about 5g and 16 hog meatballs - weighing about 2-3g

80g Mince meat - Lamb, beef or Turkey
1/2 an egg
35g Plain oats normal or gluten&wheat free depending on diet needs.

Put in a bowl mix together until well combined
Shape into a cake shape for hoggy meat cake. Shape into small balls for hoggy meat balls (make some bigger for dogs and cats too)
Dry fry untill cooked all the way through or put in the oven at 200C (fan) and cook for about 10-15 mins (as its only small) or until you think its fully cooked.

If you did a cake you can add some mashed (no butter or milk) hog safe veg - sweet potato, carrot or parsips work really well as icing and fave insects on top as decorations

Once cooked these can be:
Frozen put in a airtight bag/container kept for 3 months.
Kept in the fridge in an airtight bag/container for a week

Here are some pictures of them in the making and cooked

Both Holly and my dog love them!
