Directions:

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix the bacon, cheese and oatmeal. You can use a mixer with a paddle or a chopper to make the pieces small.
Add eggs and blend until sticky.
Lay out on a layer of oats on a cutting board to prevent sticking and top with treat mixture. Use a heart-shaped cookie cutter to form as desired.
Bake approximately 20 minutes or until slightly golden. Let cool.
