Using Leftovers: Homemade Dog Treats!
Essentially, they're biscuits, and they don't have to come out pretty to be appreciated by our Kaleb. Avoid any ingredients your pet might be allergic to, and all ingredients on the DON'T list for dogs...grapes/raisins, onions, and so on.
I was cleaning out my fridge and had some items that weren't spoiled but were too sparse to make it into another meal soon...a bit of fish, a little cooked carrot, dab of oatmeal. There are a lot of good dog treat recipes online...I just mixed some old pancake mix (don't need to keep it on hand and there was not much left) with the leftovers, mixed in some powdered milk, flour, dry oats, oil, and an egg. Stir, roll out, and bake!
These were kind of homely and the white stuff isn't powdered sugar but flour. But they actually smelled good cooking and I cooked them long enough for them to be hard enough to keep well stored in a sack in the freezer, and for a few to be kept in the treat jar.
Got any tried and true recipes you use for your own pet treats? I'd love to know!
From Kaleb's kitchen, bon appetit!
