My dogs are important members of my family and I believe they deserve some special holiday treats too! There are all kinds of dog treat/dog food recipes online, but this week I opted to make these easy, Cheesy Biscuits. I substituted parmesan for cheddar since that’s what I had in my fridge. Grace and Tally love the taste, and I love the cute, cookie cutter shapes!
Wishing everyone a happy and healthy Thanksgiving from our family to yours! Be sure to take a minute to put down the fork and remember all you have to be thankful for!
1 cup rolled oats (such as Quaker)
1/3 cup margarine
1 cup Boiling water
3/4 cup cornmeal
1 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons chicken or beef flavored instant bouillon
1/2 cup milk
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 egg, beaten
2 – 3 cups whole wheat flour.
Preheat your oven to 325 degrees.
Grease cookie sheets.
In large bowl, combine rolled oats, margarine and boiling water; let stand 10 minutes. Stir in cornmeal, sugar, bouillon, milk, cheese and egg; mix well. Lightly spoon flour into measuring cup; level off. 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.
