My mom used to make these for me when I was a puppy. But now that I'm a big dog I can make my own. I've been using these as bait to try and get a date with the cute little poodle down the street. Bonzo from next door liked these so much that he suggested that I enter them in the Alpo bake-off contest!
- 1 (1/4 ounce) package active dry yeast
- 2 cups warm chicken broth or 2 cups beef broth
- 1⁄2 lb sliced bacon, cooked to a hard crisp and crumbled,reserving the grease
- 2 fluid ounces of the reserved bacon grease (add melted butter if there isn’t enough grease)
- 1 cackleberry, beaten
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 3 cups whole wheat flour
- 1 cup wheat germ
- 4 fluid ounces water
- 1⁄2 cup powdered cow juice
- 2 fluid ounces honey
- 1⁄4 teaspoon sodium chloride
- 1 cup cornmeal
- 2 cups oatmeal
- Fetch 2 bowls – 1 small and 1 big.
- In the small bowl, dissolve yeast in warm H2O.
- In the big bowl combine broth, powdered cow juice, bacon grease, honey, cackleberry and sodium chloride.
- Add the yeast/ H2O mixture and mix well.
- Stir in flour, cornmeal, wheat germ, crumbled bacon and oatmeal; mix well.
- Add whole wheat flour, ½ cup at a time, mixing well after each addition.
- Using your front paws, knead in the final amounts of flour and continue kneading for 4 or 5 minutes until dough is not sticky – if you are a Pekinese or other small breed, you may need to ask the local Retriever or Shepherd to help you with this stage.
- Pat or roll dough to ½-inch thickness and cut into bone shapes. Don't worry if you leave paw prints in the dough.
- Place them on greased cookie sheet (s), cover lightly and let set for 20 minutes.
- Bake in a 350-degree Fidoheit oven for 45 minutes.
- While they are baking, take a quick stroll around the neighbourhood to see if any dehydrated looking fire hydrants need to be watered or, if you are female, just go bark at the neighbours for a bit.
- Turn off the oven and leave the biscuits to cool and harden in the oven for several hours or overnight.
- Take a well-deserved nap.
After many years of learning to speak dog I think I can faithfully translate my dog, Shovav's comments: Miller, thank you for showing this to my human. I really enjoyed it, even though I had to share with the feline who lives in my house. My human has some weird dietary rules for her kitchen, so instead of bacon she used some fatty salami, and instead of the cow juice she used soy milk. I have never enjoyed my snack more. Please send my human some more recipes, maybe with some feline in them. I have the perfect one in mind...
