Dog Daze In the Kitchen

Recently I have been researching healthy pet treats and compiling recipes that are easy to make for our pet family. Our pet family consists of our rather sassy Chihuahua Candi and her 3 feline friends Jaseby, Jypsy Love and Jersey Girl. Since Candi is out numbered 3 to 1 by her feline friends, I thought that I would get busy on her treats first. I have found several recipes for doggie treats that I will be making in the upcoming weeks. Today’s recipe is made from products that I have readily available in the pantry.

  • 2 1/2 cups of Whole Wheat Flour
  • 1 beef or chicken bouillon cube
  • 1 cup of boiling water
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 egg

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Boil one cup of water and add the bouillon cube and let it dissolve. Add the bouillon broth to the flour, salt and egg and mix thoroughly. Knead the dough and roll out and cut into shapes. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and bake for 30 minutes. Allow to cool completely and give to your dog for the taste test.  For a variety try adding in cheese and bacon bits. Chicken or beef broth can be used in place of the bouillon broth. This recipe netted 14 large bone cookies.
