Doggie Cheddar Potato Bites

I love making treats out of leftovers! It is such a nice way to clear out the fridge and put everything to use. I find I often cook too many potatoes and this easy recipe is a quick way to use up any leftover ‘taters I find on my hands.

They are also one of my dog’s favorite treats. This time around I left the room for a minute and returned to find him waiting (im)patiently on a chair for his treats!

Ingredients:

  • ½ C. Mashed potatoes, roughly four small potatoes
  • ½ C. Oat flour
  • ¼ C. All-purpose or whole-wheat flour
  • 1 Egg
  • ¼ C. Cheddar cheese, shredded
  • A pinch of salt.

Step-By-Step Instructions:

  1. Bring a pot of water to boil, no salt! Rinse and chop your potatoes and add to the water. Cook until tender and can easily be pierced with a fork.
  2. Drain potatoes and allow to cool.
  3. Preheat oven to 350 F and lightly grease a baking sheet.
  4. In a blender, food processor, or by hand mash potatoes until smooth in consistency and there are no chunks larger than a pea.
  5. Transfer potatoes to a bowl and add all other ingredients. Mix until combined.
  6. Dollop tablespoon sized mounds onto the sheet and lightly flatten with wet fingertips.
  7. Bake for 12-15 minutes, until the edges start to crisp and the bottoms are nicely browned.
  8. Cool completely and store in an airtight container at room temperature for 2-5 days or in the freezer for up to 2 months.
