I was tootling around the Internet the other day and saw a heard of recipes for homemade Doggie Treats. One in particular caught my eye.
In our house we love BACON! I mean come on, who doesn’t?
When ever I make a tray of that crispy-golden-delicious treat, I save the rendered fat in an old plastic container, with a well fitting lid, and stash it in the `fridge. Have you ever cooked your morning Eggs with Bacon Grease? MMM!
Our beloved, handsome, smart and spoiled rotten Puppy-Boy Vito passed away back in 2005, but he is still in our hearts and thoughts, everyday. I would make all kinds of treats for him, but ya know, I never made Dog Biscuits, no really!
I wanted to give this recipe a whirl and share them with our neighbor-Doggies. My thought is to make a few different flavors of Puppy Treats to sell at our Communities next Bake Sale 💡
So here’s my own spin on this recipe ~
Bacon Dog Biscuits
Original recipe by the Santa Clara County Humane Society
Yield: Approx. 50 – 2″x1″x1/4″ Small Dog Bone Shaped Cookies
2 1/2 C. Whole Wheat Flour
1/2 C. Milk
5 Tbsp. rendered Bacon Fat
2 pieces of cooked Bacon, minced, about 1/4 C.
1/8 tsp. Garlic Powder
1/2 tsp. Salt
1/4 C. Water
Pre-heat the over to 350°
In a stand mixer, combine all of the ingredients to form a slightly firm dough.
Dust a section of the counter with some more Flour and roll out the dough to 1/4 inch thick. Cut into desired shapes, the easiest and quickest is to use a Pizza Cutter Wheel, making small-ish/bite sized cookies— the sky’s the limit as to shape and size.
Place the biscuits onto a parchment lined baking sheet, leaving about 1/4 inch between each Cookie; bake for approximately 15 minutes or until the Biscuits are firm to the touch.
Cool on the pan for 1 minute and then transfer to a cooling rack. Once cooled completly, store in an airtight container or Zip-top baggie.
Now, IF you should have any of these goodies for Fido leftover, I might put them into the refrigerator, after all, there’s BACON in there 😀
