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!
