Cheese Nuggets

1 cup uncooked oatmeal
1 1/2 cup hot water or meat juices
4 oz (1 cup) grated cheese
1 egg, beaten
1 cup wheat germ
1/4 cup margarine
1/2 cup powdered milk
1/4 tsp. salt
1 cup cornmeal
3 cup whole wheat flour

Preheat oven to 300 F. In large bowl pour hot water over oatmeal and margarine: let stand for 5 minutes. Stir in powdered milk, grated cheese, salt and egg. Add cornmeal and wheat germ. Mix well. Add flour, 1/3 cup at a time, mixing well after each addition. Knead 3 or 4 minutes, adding more flour if necessary to make a very stiff dough. Pat or roll dough to 1/2 inch thickness. Cut into bone shaped biscuits and place on a greased baking sheet. Bake for 1 hour at 300 degrees. Turn off heat and leave in oven for 1 1/2 hours or longer. Makes approximately 2 1/4 pounds.
