Dog Biscuits- Bob’s Bacon Biscuits

Bob’s Bacon Dog Biscuits

I have a couple of dogs that have been pestering me for homemade dog biscuits. They pointed out, and rightly so, that I always seem to be baking goodies for my human friends. Both Bob and Parker are bacon fiends so I thought I’d incorporate real bacon into the recipes – as opposed to whatever they put in some dog treats. Since I made them with fresh bacon I would not suggest leaving them at room temperature for extended periods. Keep a few in the fridge and place the rest in the freezer- like some premium dog foods. Remember there are no preservatives in these. Also – they are meant to be a treat and not a substitute for  your dog’s normal pet food. Woof Woof!!

Bob’s Bacon Biscuits (dog biscuits)

4-5 thick slices of bacon, cut up

3 1/2 c. flour- I use whole wheat

1 c.  rye flour

2 c. cracked wheat or wheat germ

2 T. brewer’s yeast or nutritional yeast

2 c. chicken or beef broth- be sure broth was made without onions- they are bad for dogs

Cook bacon in skillet until crisp. Remove from pan and cool. Reserve 2 Tablespoons of the fat. Place bacon in small food processor and process until pretty ground up. You should end up with 1/3 cup of finely chopped bacon.  Combine dry ingredients then add bacon, reserved bacon fat and broth stirring until well blended.  If the dough is too wet add a little more flour or a little more stock if too dry. Dough should feel like very heavy cookie dough. Harder to roll out- but that is normal. Roll out on lightly floured surface and cut into canine-friendly shapes. I use bones, cats, squirrels, hearts and rabbits.  Since I was making bacon biscuits I even made some piggy-shaped. Place on ungreased baking sheet and bake in a preheated 300-degree oven until hard, about 40-45 minutes depending on thickness. Store in fridge for treats being eaten within a few days- store the rest in the freezer. Woof!
