During the holidays, I find that I am constantly cooking for my family. Usually, my dog Ben gets the odd scrap or two after our Christmas dinner, but lately I have been feeling a little guilty when he looks at me with that “I expected so much more of you” look. So, this year I decided to break out his favorite treat recipes and include him in the Christmas festivities! If you feel like going the extra mile for your pup this holiday season, I am pleased to share with you Ben’s favorite recipes:
- 1 pound ground turkey
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 of a 10 oz canister of bread crumbs (plain or Italian)
- Garlic powder
Mix well, then spread on an ungreased baking sheet (jelly roll pan with sides). Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes or until soft & chewy. When cool, slice into small squares. Refrigerate or freeze.
Cheese & Garlic Bites
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- 1 cup grated cheese
- 1/2 -1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 tablespoon soft margarine or butter
- 1/2 cup milk
Mix flour and cheese together. Add garlic & margarine. Slowly add milk until it forms a stiff dough. Knead on floured board for a few minutes. Roll out to 1/4″ thick. Bake on ungreased cookie sheet for 15 minutes at 350 degrees. Let cool in oven. Break into small pieces. Store in the refrigerator.
