Weekly Drool Recipe: Healthy Protein-Packed Dog Pizza Treats via Aleksandra Ninova

At Best Bully Sticks we have some pretty amazing customers—who care about their dogs through and through. From tip of the nose to tip of the tail, our customer will go great lengths to get their dog the best and healthiest options for a full and happy canine life. Aleksandra Ninova is no different. She even took some of our safe and healthy treats and made her protein-packed dog treats! We thought we’d share her story and recipe with you so you can recreate this healthy and tasty treat for your pup!

As a new doggie mom, I want the best for my little boy Bruno. I spend a bunch of time researching the best dog food, best feeding techniques (such as rotational feeding – switching food brands every few months), as well as healthiest, natural dog treats. I also love cooking, so I decided to cook up some treats for my little guy. When researching recipes, I saw that just about all (basically all) of them have a lot of flour as an ingredient. Granted, the flour is usually whole wheat, or brown rice, but I was determined to find a way to minimize the amount of flour and starch in my dog treats as dogs do not NEED too much of it (if any at all). So thus I looked around my supplies to see what I could substitute flour for. read more…

Weekly Drool Recipe: Turkey Bacon and Cheese Dog Treats

There are few tastier combinations we can think of than bacon and cheese, so when we came across The Blissful Bakker’s recipe for Turkey Bacon and Cheese Dog Treats, we knew we had to share it with you! In addition to their delicious flavor, turkey bacon and cheese each contain an assortment of beneficial nutrients as well. Cheese, which is high in calcium, vitamins A, B12, quality proteins and amino acids, is great for maintaining strong bones and healthy teeth. Turkey bacon, a lower fat version of pork bacon, is a great source of lean protein and carbs for energy, muscle and tissue health. With this win-win in taste and nutrition, it’s no wonder both cheese and bacon are universally loved by dog and owner alike! Here’s how Rachel at The Blissful Bakker combines the two into a delicious treat your pup is sure to love:

Ingredients: 

  • 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour (plus more if needed)
  • 1 Tbsp. baking powder
  • 1/4 cup cooked turkey bacon, crumbled
  • 1/4 cup finely shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup milk   

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a large bowl, combine flour and baking powder.
  • Stir in milk, chopped bacon and cheddar cheese until a soft dough forms (you may have to add a little more flour if the dough seems really sticky).
  • Roll out the dough with your hands to make half inch balls (you may want to alter this based on your dog’s size)
  • Place balls on a cookie sheet and bake for 10 minutes, flip and bake for another 10 minutes or until slightly crunchy.
  • Cool and store in an airtight container for 3-5 days or in the freezer for up to one month.

 Note: If your pup has any dietary issues, be sure to consult with your vet before feeding these treats to your furry friend. 

Thanks so much to Rachel (and her pup, Darby!) at The Blissful Bakker for sharing this recipe with us!
