Need meatball recipe used to fatten up rescues.

A lady friend and former BDW poster has asked for the recipe of those meatballs that were used a long while back to fatten up one of the rescue bully boys they had. I think it was maybe JoAnn that had the dog...was his name Chance maybe, or...ugh, I don't remember.... Anywho, here is the post from the rescue forum...

"We have a rescued lab in our office. He is about 40 pounds underweight. Boss has not been successful in putting weight on him. I know a good while back I saw where someone posted on the BW forum a recipe for some meatball treats they made for their rescued bulldogs to help put weight on them. If anyone has it here could you e-mail it to me. Thanks"

I found this one to fatten up a rescue.........

10 pounds hamburger meat
1 large box of total cereal
1 large box of oatmeal
1 jar of wheat germ
1/4 cup of unsulfured molasses
1 1/4 cup vegetable oil
10 raw eggs an shells
10 packages of unflavored gelatin
pinch of salt
roll into meat balls, freeze an thaw as needed but be careful cause they will put weight on the dog in no time an over weight if feed to much........

Hopefully this helps I got it off of a B.A.R.F. page on the net.
