Homemade Bacon, Egg and Cheese Dog Treats

Lately, I have been thinking of trying my hand at homemade dog treats, and there were several recipes on the boards that I plan to try. But first, I wanted to start simply, with ingredients I already had in the pantry. So using ideas from other recipes, I came up with this one on my own.


  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup + 1 TBSP low-sodium, low-fat plain chicken broth
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp Kosher salt
  • 3 strips of bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheese (I used Monterey Jack)


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees, and begin with the flour in the mixing bowl.


Then, add a little bit of the broth, and the egg.



Is that the mixer I hear? Whatcha making?

Add the rest of the broth gradually until you get a ball of sticky-ish dough.


Crumble the cooked bacon and add the cheese to the bowl,


and mix until they are evenly incorporated.


Roll the dough out into a 1/2″-thick disc, or reasonable facsimile.


And then cut into the shapes of your choice. (Next time, I might do cats or squirrels.)


Place the cut-outs onto a baking sheet. I like to use parchment paper to keep the edges and bottoms from scorching.


Bake 25-30 minutes, depending on desired crispness.

They look about the same going in and coming out. They didn't brown much.

I would have liked them to be a bit more crispy,


but Poochie loved them just as they were!
