Bacon & Peanut Butter Homemade Dog Biscuit Recipe
Please note: be sure your dog is not allergic to any of the ingredients listed. Read the ingredients list on your peanut butter container. Do NOT use if it contains xylitol. Know what is in each ingredient before making dog biscuits. Unfortunately, the food companies don’t give a crap about you or your dog. If health issues due to age or illness are a concern, you may want to replace some of these items or buy vet-recommended treats instead. Ask your veterinarian for advice.
Assuming you have the basic kitchen necessities (large bowl or mixing
bowl, cookie sheet, parchement paper), you will also need the following:
- A rolling pin
- A small to medium sized doggy bone shaped cookie cutter (optional but recommended). For smaller dogs, use a small sized cookie cutter and a larger one, for the larger breeds.
- Something to poke divots in the cookies (I used a meat thermometer)
If you don’t have any bacon fat stored, fry up about 7 pieces, let the
remaining fat in the pan cool just a bit and add that to your mixture,
being cognizant of the temperature as you don’t want to burn your hands
*See instructions on the bottom of this recipe to learn how to store bacon fat for future use.
Preheat oven to 350(f)
*Did you know that you can save your bacon fat drippings from the
frying pan, into a jar, adding more to that same jar each time you make
bacon, and store it in the fridge for approximately 6 months? I use an
old olive jar and it works great!
