Tasteeeee Tuesday ------Cookie me

The grand gourmand cookie

1 tablespoon of brewer's yeast or I TBSP of Marmite or Vegemite [ I love that stuff~]
3 cups warm water
2 cups ground turkey
1 egg
1 cup of shredded carrots
1 cup of pureed spinach or green beans or cauliflower [momma's fav]
4 cups of ground oatmeal
1 tablespoon canola oil
1/2 cup of chopped turkey jerkey bits

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Mix and stir all the ingredients until you have  the consistency of thick paste.

Let it sit for about 15 minutes to give the oat a chance to fully absorb the liquid.

If your dough is too dry, add additional water.  

Here is where its gets controversial.  I would like the momma to make a REAL cookie.You know, the size of say... her hand?  Like the ones daddy gets?

But no.  Cheapo uses the smallest scooper, the size of  mellon baller. and drops these itty bitty cookie "bites" on parchment that has been lightly sprayed with over spray. Baking takes about 20 minutes. Cool them before serving. These biscuits get frozen because... 1. they don't have a long shelf life because of all the veggies, 2. they are delicious frozen, 3. we don't want to encourage anyone to just eat them all at once! 

And.... that dreaded word CALORIESSSSSS.

There are NO free rides in life.

Kol, eating vegemite is an acquired taste. If you are a newbie, you need a schmear of it with a schmear of cream cheese on toast. NOT STRAIGHT... unless you are hard core like momma and I. It is intense and a little bit goes a long way. But it gives food a wonderful full taste. When you eat gravy that is commercially prepared... you are eating... vegemite....:) yummm
