Meaty Bits Dog Treats

Last month, we went to Lawry’s to celebrate Ryan’s birthday and brought home 2 big prime rib bones for the doggies since they couldn’t come with us… The first time Sriracha had a prime rib bone, he almost tipped over while carrying the thing to his crate because it was bigger than him. The second time, he started chewing at it while I was holding it out to him. He didn’t plan to take it away and figured it was better to have me carry it for him!

Meaty bits dog treatsI always strip most of the leftover meat off the bones before giving them to my dogs since too much meat will upset their stomach. But it’s a shame to waste perfectly good prime rib meat, so I ended up making little prime rib bits dog treats for my little friends.

Ingredients
  1. 1 large egg
  2. 1/2 cup beef or chicken stock
  3. 1 cup chopped up cooked meat (lean beef or chicken breast)
  4. 2 cup all-purpose flour + extra flour as needed & for dusting
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. Whisk the egg and stock together in a medium mixing bowl.
  3. Add 1 cup of flour and whisk to combine.
  4. Add the chopped up meat in the flour mixture and mix together.
  5. Add the remaining 1 cup of flour and mix with the wooden spoon until all the flour is incorporated into a ball of dough. If the mixture is still wet, add a little more flour.
  6. On well-floured board, roll the dough out to about 1/4 inch thick. Use flour liberally while rolling so the dough doesn’t stick.
  7. Cut dough with a 2 inch dog bone cookie cutter and place on the baking sheet about 1/2 inch apart. Gather the remaining bits of dough, shape into a ball, roll out again, and continue to cut. Repeat until all the dough is gone.
  8. Bake for 30 minutes. Flip the treats, and bake for another 20 minutes until both sides are golden brown. Let cool completely on the counter before serving to your pups.
Notes
  1. You can use any shape cookie cutter you have, or simply use a knife and slice the dough into squares or rectangles. Also, you can make the treats larger for bigger pups.
  2. Substitute other type of flour as needed if you feed your pups a grain free diet.
