Holiday Dog Cookies

1 cup chopped skinless turkey
1 cup cooked sweet potatoes and leftover green beans and carrots
2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
1 large egg
1 cup whole-wheat flour
1.5 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon honey

In a blender or food processor, combine turkey, veggies, oil, honey, and egg yolk (reserve the white for later). Blend until smooth; some small lumps are fine.
Put the flour and parsley in a large mixing bowl. Slowly add the blended mixture and stir well until you have a dough. Roll the dough into a log shape and put in the refrigerator for an hour, or until firm.
Preheat oven to 350°. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray and set aside
Slice firmed dough into cookies about an inch thick.
Place cookies on baking sheet, and brush each treat with the reserved egg white, topping with Parmesan cheese.
Bake at 350° for 25 minutes; turn oven down to 250° and bake for another 20 to 30 minutes. Check them occasionally to make sure that they don’t get too brown.
Turn off the oven. Leave cookies inside to dry out for about 3 hours.

this is a great recipe to help get rid of all those left overs.
