Happy Friday, readers! Sarah at Total Basset Case is featuring Fred & Tillie over on her blog today and in honor of the occasion, I figured I would share a quick and easy dog treat recipe so you can make snacks for your favorite pups from scratch.
The best thing about this recipe is that these are all ingredients I had at home when I decided to experiment with dog treats on a whim. Here's what I used:
1 1/2 cup flour
1 cup oats
1/2 cup broth (I used veggie broth but chicken, beef, etc would work, too!)
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Mix all of the ingredients together...
...and then knead by hand until you have a ball. Chill for 30 minutes while you preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
Once the dough is chilled, roll it out on a floured surface and use a cookie cutter to make your treats:
Put the treats onto a greased or nonstick cookie sheet and bake for 30 minutes.
At this point, your kitchen will smell pretty tasty. Remember: these are for your dogs. Take out the treats and place on a rack to cool.
Once your treats are cool, store them in an airtight container for up to a week. This recipe makes 48 treats, so you'll have plenty for your favorite dogs. Enjoy the weekend and stay hungry!
