Cheese Dog Biscuits

Homemade dog treats are fun to make and healthier than many of the store-bought treats. This is one of our favourite recipes someone sent me a few years ago!

Cheese Dog Biscuits

1 cup oatmeal
1/3 cup margarine
1 cup Boiling water
3/4 cup cornmeal
1 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons chicken or beef flavored instant bouillon or consume
1/2 cup milk
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 egg, beaten
2 - 3 cups flour.

Preheat your oven to 325 degrees. Grease cookie sheets.

In large bowl, combine rolled oatmeal, margarine and boiling water; let stand 10 minutes. Stir in cornmeal, sugar, bouillon, milk, cheese and egg, mix well. Add flour 1 cup at a time, mixing well after each addition to form a stiff dough.

On floured surface, knead in remaining flour until dough is smooth and no longer sticky, 3 to 4 minutes. Roll or pat out dough to 1/2 inch thickness, cut with bone shaped cookie cutter. Place 1 inch apart on greased cookie sheets. Bake at 325 degrees for 35 to 45 minutes on until golden brown. Cool completely. Store loosely covered. Makes 3 1/2 dozen large dog biscuits or 8 dozen small dog biscuits.

Storing Dog Treats

You should store dog treats the same way you store people cookies. SThere are no preservatives in these treats, they mold or spoil much faster in humid or very hot weather. Refrigereate or freeze in zip lock bags. Thaw completely before use.
