3 C White Whole-Wheat Flour
2 Tsp. Baking Powder
3 Tsp. Minced Fresh Parsley (good for doggie breath)
1/2 C. Shredded Carrots
1/4 C. Shredded Cheese (your choice–mozzarella, cheddar)

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!

Weekly Drool Recipe: Sweet Potato Peanut Butter Blueberry Frozen Goodness via Wayward Dogs

As Cystal of “Wayward Dogs” puts it, her Sweet Potato Peanut Butter Blueberry Frozen Goodness dog treat recipe is for “master estimators.” You won’t find any exact measurements here, but you will a tasty, all-natural treat that will cool off your dog and tickle his taste buds! (We like Crystals humor, so we included her post in its entirety!) Thanks for sharing this great recipe and your photos, Crystal!

Sweet Potato Peanut Butter Blueberry Frozen Goodness

Ingredients

1. What’s left of last year’s sweet potato harvest. Or, as many sweet potatoes as you feel like cleaning, chopping up, boiling and pureeing in the blender – minus the amount of mash you decide at the last minute to save for yourself. Because mashed sweet potatoes are so awesome to eat they require no condiments (although a dash of salt and butter can’t hurt).

2. Peanut butter. As much as you feel like spooning into the pureed sweet potatoes, but probably not an equal amount or the batter will get so voluminous that you’ll be at this all day.

3. Oats – regular or the instant kind. Really, the dogs won’t know the difference.

4. Cinnamon. Put the container on the sprinkle – not the dump – setting, and use your judgment.

5. Dried blueberries. For topping. read more…

Don’t forget to give your dog a tasty treat during your Fourth of July cookout tomorrow! And we don’t mean table scraps! Follow our friend Jen’s recipe, at My Dog’s Breakfast, for a cool and festive Fourth of July dog treat! These “Red, White & Blues” Frosty Fourth of July treats are easy and your dog will love the berry taste!

Ingredients

1/2 cup to a cup of plain yogurt

1/2 cup to a cup strawberries (I used frozen)

1/2 cup to a cup blueberries (I used frozen)

Directions

1. Thaw your berries if you’re using frozen ones.

2. Puree the berries with a stick blender or blender, or even your fork and some effort will do it if they’re from frozen, because they’re so soft.

3. Layer them into your mold. I used a silicone bone mold, you could even use muffin tins. Fill each slot 1/3 full with strawberry puree. Freeze for an hour. Add yogurt to make it 2/3 full. Freeze for an hour. Scrape off any excess white yogurt from sides so you will be able to see all three layers. Fill to top with blueberries and freeze for at least five hours.
