Homemade Dog Treats
I recently started baking my own dog treats. I found that it is a real money saver and the dogs just love them. I use a small bone shaped cookie cutter and get around 80 biscuits per recipe.
1 cup rolled oats (I have used quick cook oats and they work just fine)
1/3 cup margarine
1 cup boiling water
¾ cup cornmeal
2 teaspoons white sugar
2 chicken bouillon cubes
½ cup milk
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
1 egg, beaten
3 cups whole wheat flour
- Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Boil water with bouillon cubes. In a large bowl, combine rolled oats, margarine, and boiling water. Let stand 10 minutes. Grease cookie sheets.
- Thoroughly stir in cornmeal, sugar, milk, Cheddar cheese, and egg. Mix in flour, 1 cup at a time, until a stiff dough has formed.
- Knead dough on a lightly floured surface, mixing in additional flour as necessary until dough is smooth and no longer sticky. Roll or pat out dough to ½” thickness. Cut with cookie cutter and place 1 inch apart onto the prepared cookie sheets.
- Bake 35 to 45 minutes in the preheated oven, until golden brown. Cool before serving. Store In a loosely covered container.
