Lamb fudge tempter

Baked some lamb fudge last night for Shalom's 2011 new year getaway trip to the beach. This is an easy to make and definitely yummy treats. Actually we use this a fair bit for our daily play and trainings. And because they are slightly moist, they make good treats during outings as it is another source of hydration for the furkids rather than dry treats such as Polly Pumpkin.
Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 30-40 minutes (depending on your oven)

• 400g ground lamb
• 1/2 teaspoon of chopped garlic / rosemary
• 120g carrots / pumpkin
• 300ml of water or milk (milk gives it a creamier consistency and does not seem to be a problem for Shalom who is lactose intolerant)(and we now opt for Goat's milk)
• 400g flour (rice flour or wheat flour)
• 1 large egg (optional)

We made 2 pans this round - one pan being garlic carrot and the other being rosemary pumpkin

Chopped up or slice the carrots and pumpkins, whichever your preference. I like them chopped because I am lazy. I just dropped them all into the chopper.

Transfer to a large bowl. Mix flour, garlic / rosemary, lamb, carrots / pumpkin, milk / water and the optional egg in the bowl. Combine till is a watery texture. If a wee dry, add more water or milk.

Optional: replace some of the flour with oats so that it has a stiffer and chewier texture.

Pour ingredients into an oiled baking pan.

Preheat oven.

Baked at 180C at 30-40 minutes.

Check that is is cooked by inserting a toothpick through. If it comes out clean, its cooked. if not, popped it in for another 2-3 minutes or so.

Transfer to a wire rack to cool.
I generally cut it into cubes for Shalom at home. However for gatherings, I normally cut them into smaller bits. Don't want any furkid choking as a result of gobbling their food.
They keep one week in the fridge. I normally keep them in tubs and freeze them till they are needed:D

It smells lovely even to my nose. So I normally would nibble on some. Be salt or sugar, so its just flavours from the ingredients and nothing more.

And here's the 2 pans all sliced and packed ready for Shalom's 2011 new year countdown getaway.
