Bacon Biscuits For Your Pup

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

1 Egg

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  😀
