Ingredients

  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup stock (chicken, beef, vegetable, or water, 59 g)
  • 2 slice bacons (66 g)
  • 1 1/4 cup whole wheat flour (162 g)
  • Extra flour for rolling

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Cut bacon slices into small bits and fry in a cast iron skillet until crispy. Remove the bacon bits to a plate and allow to cool. Reserve the fat and allow to cool slightly in the pan.
  • Add cooled bacon fat, egg and stock to a medium mixing bowl and beat until smooth. Fold in the whole wheat flour along with the bacon bits and knead until a dough forms.
  • Flour the counter or a large cutting board, roll the dough out to about 1/4” thick. Cut into shapes with cookie cutters. Reroll the scraps and continue cutting into shapes.
  • Place cookies on a baking sheet between 1/2” to 1” apart. Bake for 20 minutes. Rotate pan, flip cookies, reduce oven temperature to 300°F and bake for another 30 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely on the baking sheet set on top of a wire rack. Refrigerate in an airtight containers for up to two weeks.

Notes

Cook bacon will yield about 2 tablespoons of bacon fat (21 g) and less than 1/4 cup of bacon bits (16 g). Use these measurements to substitute cook ground chicken, turkey or other chopped up cooked meat and oil if desired.
