Recipes for Homemade Potato Dog Treats

are a favorite of many canines. And even better, making these delicious gourmet is pretty easy, even for an amateur baker! A really easy treat (to be fed in moderation, of course) is to make a "doggy cake" of 1 lb of ground beef, about a cup of oatmeal, enough eggs to hold it together (usually around 5 or 6 large fresh eggs), and some chopped veggies. Mix it all together and bake until it's set... and then "frost" it with mashed potatoes.
