Homemade Dog Biscuit Recipes -
Turkey & Stuffing Dog Treats
Are you looking for seasonal homemade dog biscuit recipes? Then look no further! Your dog will love the texture of these turkey and stuffing dog biscuits.
The dog biscuit dough is very moist, but it bakes into a hard outer shell. Once cooled, the cookie is crisp on the outside and soft on the inside.
If your dog doesn't care for a soft treat, make each dog biscuit smaller so they will cook through, and be an overall dry treat.
- 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
- 1 cup plain bread crumbs
- 1 tbsp. dried parsley
- 2 cups pure pumpkin (not pie filling)
- 2 eggs, lightly beaten

Tips & Techniques
- Turkey Baby Food - When choosing a turkey baby food, make sure to read the ingredient list. Some will contain onion, which is not good for dogs (see below). If you can not find a pure organic turkey puree, choose a turkey vegetable dinner mixture, or something similar.
- Substitute for Pumpkin - You can also use cooked, mashed sweet potato instead of pumpkin. Just be sure to really mash, or whip the cooked sweet potato for a smooth textured dog biscuit.
- Stuffing - Please do not be tempted to substitute traditional stuffing for the plain bread crumbs. Most pre-made stuffing contains onion which is on the list of foods poisonous to dogs. Store bought stuffing also contains excess sugar and salt for dogs.
- Homemade Bread Crumbs - You can make your own bread crumbs by putting a couple slices of dry bread in a food processor. Then sprinkle your crumbs on a baking sheet and pop into a 300° oven for 10 to 15 minutes. Lightly stir the crumbs half way through. Use what you need and freeze the rest for other homemade dog biscuit recipes.
