I adapted this recipe for my dogs because I wanted something relatively low fat (they have to go to the vet pretty soon and I don't want her to call them Snausages again) that they'd like. I didn't want to use dairy products or garlic because of possible adverse effects on the girls. I've tested these out on the girls and they seem to really like them.
- 2 cups whole wheat flour
- 1⁄2 cup cornmeal (approximately)
- 2⁄3 cup chicken broth
- 1 (2 1/2 ounce) jarmeat baby food (I used Beef and Beef Gravy)
- 1 -2 ounce water
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Combine cornmeal and wheat flour in a bowl.
- Add baby food, broth and water (I put the water in the baby food jar and shook it up to get all of the stuff in there).
- Mix together and knead dough (the dough will be stiff).
- Add additional water if necessary.
- Dust rolling surface with a little cornmeal and roll out dough to approximately 1/4 inch thickness.
- Cut dough into desired shapes (bone shaped cookie cutters are nice).
- Bake on ungreased cookie sheet for 25 to 30 minutes.
- Note: These treats do not spread so they can be placed closely on the cookie sheet.
Beagles eat anything....but dry dog treats.... Rita (Margarite Bell Phonecia) follows me around the kitchen for these! Dogs are such little tramps! Thankyou.
I loved this recipe! More importantly, Maggie loved it! Maggie is a 1 1/2 year old Boxer with superb taste. She hasn't eaten any of the dog biscuits that we've bought before so I wasn't sure if she'd eat these, but she went crazy over them. I made them last night using some chicken stock and pan drippings from a chicken I roasted the other night. I did use more liquid- almost a full cup of stock and about 3 oz of water. I baked for 25 minutes and they came out perfect. I've already bagged a few in cute little halloween bags for my kids to give to their friends dogs. They loved them, too. I loved that the recipe didn't use anything out of the ordinary and was super easy to make. Great Job!!
My beasties thank you very much for sharing this recipe. They love these treats. I made them exactly as written with the exception that I did add a small amount of garlic powder to ward off fleas.
