My dog Coco's and Ruby's three favorite foods are cheese, bacon, and peanut butter. With this training treat I can train for hours and not feel guilty about the amount of food because they taste great, and are lower calorie than plain cheese and provide a fuller feeling because it's more food.

Ingredients:

1/2 to 1 cup of any shredded cheese, low or fat free
3 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/4 cup water or fat free milk
1/2 cup raw bacon bits
1 cup beef or chicken broth
1 tbsp olive oil
1/2 cup raw bacon bits

*Additional flour may be needed for rolling
*Additional flour and water may need to be added to dough

Instructions:

1)Preheat oven to 350° F

2)Toss the flour and the cheese and the bacon in a large bowl. Set aside.

3)In a smaller bowl mix, olive oil, broth and milk.

4)Make a hole in the center of the cheese, flour and bacon mixture.

5)Pour in the olive oil, broth and milk, mix well.

6)Knead the dough in the bowl until combined.

7) Rest dough in fridge for 15-30 minutes.

8)Fold out onto a floured surface and knead using extra flour.

9)Knead until you have a medium firm dough.

10) Roll dough into small balls, quarter size or smaller. They will bake to remotely the same they where.

11)Add extra topping such as extra bacon, peanut butter, extra cheese, your dogs dog food, or fresh fruits and vegetables. (see below for instructions)

12)Place the balls on a lightly sprayed with non-stick cooking spray baking sheet.

13)Bake for 30-35 minutes.

*When adding extra topping:

Roll the peanut butter into the dough balls before baking
Place vegetables, cheese, and bacon in the middle of the dough ball.
If you wish to add extra cheese on top, do not until 4 minutes before the treat is done to prevent burning.


These dog treats will store for 6 months in the freezer, roughly 3 in refrigerator. This recipe should yield around 6 cookie sheets, and around 3 months of treats.

Sounds Very Good

I have a 20-month old Beagle/Dachshund rescue, and not sure of her taste preferences yet. What fruits/vegetables would go well with the bacon and cheese? With this recipe, I think I could make her a variety of flavors.

Chef's Comments ~ I think you'll find that most dog safe fruits and vegetables will go great with cheese and/or bacon. Since the cheese and bacon have a strong smell and flavor all by themselves, you could use almost any kind.

I hope this helps. Happy Dog Treat Baking. :)
