A Holiday TreatPosted: January 10, 2011
I hope you all had a wonderful howl-i-day season with your furry family & human ones too! Life has been busy in the Active Dog Adventure Pack & my pups wanted to share a wonderfully yummy treat that’s even picky Primadonna approved! So, read on! This quick favorite recipe comes from The Organic Dog Biscuit Cookbook by the Bubba Rose dog biscuit co.
JUST PLAIN CHEESEBURGER
Ingredients:1 cup oat flour 1 cup brown rice flour 1 egg 1cup lean ground beef (pre-cooked & drained) 1/2 cup shredded low-fat cheddar cheese 1/4 c tomato paste 1 cup water
Directions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine all ingredients and mix thoroughly until a dough forms. Dough may be sticky, so use flour liberally when rolling out dough. Use round cookie cutter to cut out 2″ circles. Place the rounds on a cookie sheet lined w/aluminum foil. Bake 20-25 minures or until tops are golden brown.
NOTES: Instead of taking time to roll & cut out shapes, I added about 1/2 cup or little more flour to the dough and made Just Cheeseburger Bars, but placing all of the dough into a `13 x 9 x 2 glass baking dish. Bake for 40 minutes or until toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. I prefer the bars because 1) it’s less time consuming 2) I can cut out the appropriate size for my dogs!
Store in an airtight container & be sure to refrigerate any leftovers. You can heat up left overs in the microwave for about 30 seconds.
RESULTS: Oh My!! Kai, Smudge & Donna were absolutely in heaven with this special treat! It was like a party in their mouths! They all oved the wonderful aroma of ground turkey and melted cheese.. & kept coming back for more!
Give it a try & let me know if your fur-babies love it as much as mine do!
