Bacon Cheeseburger Ballz!!

Posted on

Yep, Daisy was sitting watching me cook. This was my first attempt at doggie treat making. I didn’t use a recipe (although I had recently read through a dog treat cookbook).  Normally, she doesn’t really pay attention to my cooking. I have no idea why she was so interested this time. Maybe that says something about the food I am normally cooking for myself? Of course, since it wasn’t a recipe I don’t have the exact amounts for the ingredients. But here is my first photo instructional blog for treat making. Add in some seasoning, and they could work for the humans too!

First: about 2/3rd a pound of ground beef and two eggs

Second: Add cheese. I used a mix of cheddar and Italian blend. A small handful each.

Third: Add bacon. I used about 5 slices of pre-cooked bacon since it’s what I had on hand.

Forth: add a couple tablespoons of flour and mix well

Fifth: Form into teaspoon sized ballz and bake at 350° for 20 minutes


Note Daisy’s crazy eyes while trying out the grub

Even Bella would look towards the camera for these treats!  Amazing!

I did learn one valuable lesson during my first try at making dog treats. Use aluminum foil on your pans. Seriously people-cheese hard baked onto a pan (even a non stick one) is not fun!

  1. OMD!!! hamburger cheese balls?!!! Directions to your house please ;P

    Uh by the way, do you have an extra keyboard? Mine’s all covered with drool and my paw’s slippin ;D

    Waggin at ya,

  2. You left one important instruction out: how do I keep my husband from eating these so Honey can get some?

    And that’s the real problem with making dog treats from human ingredients.

  3. Fun recipe! We tried one from Doggy Dessert Chef, parmesan mini meatballs, and they were sooo good. Gus loved them – and so did Mitch and I. We immediately made ourselves a bowl of spaghetti and meatballs!

    I’m with you on the aluminum foil – I learned the hard way, too!

  4. I never “cook” for myself so am ready to try these out for the dogs. They aren’t used to me cooking at all – will be most interesting. I will have the baby gate set up for the kitchen :). They look like you could break them up for small training treats….hmmmmm.

  5. We have a stomach bug going through our dogs right now, but I might have to try that after everybody is feeling better again! I love the girls’ expressions!
