Homemade bacon dog treats

The treats bake 40 min.; re-glaze halfway through bake time

I made a huge batch of homemade bacon-flavored dog treats recently for my three pups, Binx, Zoe and Lily. They love them, and I can rest easy because I know exactly what went into their treats. These cracker-like dog cookies are fun to make and they stay good for as long as it takes for my dogs to eat them up. Not to mention: they’re so much cheaper than buying pre-made treats from the store! I adapted my dog treats from this Allrecipes.com Bacon-flavored dog biscuits recipe.

Ingredients

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 c. milk
  • 1/2 c. water
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 10 tbsp. bacon fat
  • 5 c. wheat flour
  • 1 egg (for glaze)
  • 1 tsp. sugar (for glaze)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees; grease a cookie sheet
  2. Beat the eggs & mix in the wet ingredients
  3. Add the salt and stir in the flour 1 c. at a time
  4. Pour the stiff dough onto a floured surface and knead for one minute
  5. Roll the dough with a rolling pin to 1/4 inch thickness
  6. Cut the dough into 1×1 inch squares
  7. Gently lift the squares and arrange them on the cookie sheet
  8. Beat the last egg and mix in the sugar
  9. Brush the glaze on the tops of the dog treats
  10. Bake the dog treats for 20 min.
  11. Remove the treats from the oven and coat the tops with glaze again
  12. Bake another 20 min.
  13. Cool the treats on a newspaper-covered countertop
