Good Enough to Eat…Dog Treats
The pet industry is big business. New products are introduced to the market every year. Recently I have noticed a growing trend in “Organic” or “Natural” pet foods and treats. Let me also add these products cost a pretty penny. I guess the saying goes you get what you pay for.
Take a moment and read the label on your pets current food or treats, many words I’m not even sure I can pronounce. I want to know what I’m putting in my body…shouldn’t I know what goes into my pets body? I started researching homemade dog biscuit recipes and meshed a few ideas together, and this is what I came up with…
Daisy’s Homemade Dog Biscuits
What You’ll Need:
- 1 cup rolled oats
- 1/3 cup unsalted butter melted
- 1 cup boiling water
- 2 teaspoons chicken or beef bullion
- ¾ cornmeal
- 1 tablespoon honey
- ½ cup milk
- 1 cup Parmesan cheese
- 1 egg beaten
- 1 stalk celery (chopped fine)
- 1 small carrot grated
- 1 clove garlic minced
- 2 cups whole wheat flour (white flour can be used)
- Dash of pepper
1.) Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Grease cookie sheets.
2.) Combined oats, butter, and water, and bullion, let set 10 minutes.
3.) Add cornmeal, honey, milk, cheese, egg, celery, carrot, garlic, and pepper.
4.) Stir in 1 cup of flour at a time, mix well to form a stiff dough. Knead dough on a floured surface about 3 minutes and then roll out to ½ inch thickness.
5.) Cut out biscuits with cookie cutters, and place on cookie sheet ½ inch apart.
6.) Bake 35-45 minutes until crisp and golden brown. Depending on the size of your cookie cutter is how many biscuits you’ll get. Store loosely covered for up to 2 weeks.
