Here is my recipe that all the dogs I have looked after LOVE! They are all natural, gourmet dog treats using up any leftover scraps of meat you have. I hate wasting any food so this is a good way to use up bits and bobs. You can use any type of meat you want really, chicken, beef, pork, lamb. Just keep it simple and not spiced or over flavored as that might not agree with your dog. I used pate in my recipe as I had some in the fridge and I think it makes the meat taste stronger in the biscuits, don’t worry if you don’t have any though, just add a couple of tablespoons worth of extra meat! Hope your dog really enjoys these treats!

Ingredients

  • 2 cups / 240g Wholegrain flour
  • 1 cup / 150g meat trimmings / leftovers or scraps
  • ½ cup / 120ml beef stock
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbsp chicken liver pate
  • 2 tbsp butter or (drippings saved from a roast joint of meat)
  •  
  • You will need a baking tray and biscuit cutter, rolling pin.

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 180c / 350f / gas 4
  2. Start by blending the meat trimmings and pate together in a food processor until smooth
  3. If you don’t have a food processor don’t worry, just chop it all up as finely as possible
  4. Add the flour to a large bowl, make a well in the center
  5. Crack the egg in, add the pureed meat, add the fat and mix together with a spoon or use your hands
  6. Pour in the stock and mix well, bring it together with your hands and roll it into a ball of dough
  7. Sprinkle a bit of flour onto your work top and also your rolling pin
  8. Roll the dough out until about ¼ inch thick
  9. Now you can cut out whatever shapes and sizes you like to make your bog biscuits
  10. You can buy dog bone shaped cutters and lot’s of cute cutters
  11. If you don’t have any cutters just do what I did and cut out the shapes you want using a sharp knife
  12. You can even make cardboard templates to cut around if you can’t find the cutter you want
  13. Place biscuits on a baking tray and pop into your pre heated oven for 20 minutes
  14. Or until lightly golden brown
  15. They should be slightly hard and crisp on the outside
  16. Leave to cool on a wire rack
  17. Once cool they can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge, or somewhere cool, for up to 2 weeks.
