Like many of you, I can’t stand wasting food. During Christmas, my mother made us a large, very tasty turkey. While the turkey was very yummy, there was no way the two of us were going to eat all of it, especially with the two of us preparing for a business trip. Since I can’t stand to waste food, I immediately put the freeze bagged turkey in the freezer and prepared it to come with us. Now, the turkey is thawed and I’m determined to not let any of it go to waste. A good bit of it was used to make two very yummy turkey pot pies, but I had no clue what to do with the scraps of white meat and dark meat. Then, my darling Reya came in the kitchen and gave me an idea – why not make homemade dog biscuits!
After spending hours online, I couldn’t find a recipe that did exactly what I wanted. In the end, I took about five recipes, picked the things I liked most from them, modified that mix with the ingredients we had in the house, and got to work. In the end, I had a recipe unlike anything else I could find, and Reya absolutely LOVED them! Unlike most dog treats that are like hard cookies, these are more like dog sized biscuits with bits of carrot as well. While they are not everyday food, they are great treats for training, or if you think your favorite pup needs a nice treat to go along with a warm broth.
- 2 Carrots
- 4 Cups All Purpose Flour
- 4½ Cups of Old Fashion Oats
- 2 TSP Baking Powder
- 4 Cups of Chicken Broth
- 4 Cups of Fresh Turkey Meat
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
- Using a food processor, grind the turkey into very small bits. It will have a very fine texture.
- In your food processor, grind up the carrots.
- Mix all the ingredients together using a stand mixer. Mixture should be the consistency of human biscuits. Slightly sticky to the touch.
- Coat your counter in flour and roll the dough into little balls. I prefer the flour to keep the dough from sticking to your hands. Place on non-stick cookie sheet.
- Bake biscuits for 15 minutes. Let cool before serving to your dog.
