My dog loved these, I took a taste too since it was human ingredients and they werent bad (a little on the dry side but my dog didnt think so) I imagine you could make them without the bread machine if you simply keaded the dough, let it rise and knead again just like youd do for bread.


  1. Put in bread machine on dough cycle, when done knead 3 minutes and roll out on a floured curface 1/2 inch thick.
  2. Cut as desired in strips or shapes.
  3. Place on ungreased baking sheets and bake at 350 for 30-40 minutes or until crisp.
  4. Best left in the oven afterwards for the night to cool, crispen and eliminate and moisture.

WOOF WOOF WOOF!!! This is all I heard from my dogs when I walked away from there kennel with the bag of goodies I had made for them. It was so easy to do, and to think how much I usually spend on treats for them! Sheesh! Never again! Thanks!

I also needed to add more flour. I also added 1/2 cup oatmeal and a tbsp or so of wheat germ..this is my two dogs favorite recipe so far. they love cheese and bacon...sometimes I make it with the bacon too and not just the fat.they love it !!!

The food processor works fine; you can even grate the cheese in one operation. I added 1 carrot, 1 apple, about 1/2 c. wheat germ and deleted the garlic. The recipe is very adaptable to your whims. Blitzie LOVES these. They are his super-special treat, even though I make other yummies for him.
