Preheat oven to 300°F.  In a large bowl, pour hot water (or meat juices) 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 to 4 minutes, adding more flour if necessary to make very stiff dough. Pat or roll dough to an inch thickness. Cut into bone shaped biscuits with cookie cutter or into treat sized shapes based on the dog’s size. Place on greased baking sheet. Bake for 1 hour. Turn off heat and leave in the oven to sit for at least 1 hour.
