Ingredients  

1 can solid white albacore tuna (rinsed and drained)

1/2 slice of bread (use a wheat or gluten free one if your dog has allergies)

1 egg (we like cage free)

1 teaspoon fresh minced garlic

2 fresh chopped mint leaves (optional)

Olive oil

Directions

1. Turn on the oven to 350 degrees.

2. Chop bread into tiny pieces and whisk the egg.

3. Place everything in a bowl and mix.

4. Lightly grease a cookie sheet or casserole dish with the olive oil.

5. Take the mixture and create small patties. .

6. Place in oven for 20-25 minutes, or until slightly browned.

Take out and let cool. Refrigerate and serve as a treat.

P.S.- Ms. Maru is on a few antibiotics right now and discovered that because of the texture and smell of the patties they make a great treat to hide pills in.
