Bacon Cheddar Dog Treats

Mr.Hooah & I have been making small changes to be healthier this year and so far so good!
 He has actually been trying a few new veggies and some have been a success! 
With all the healthy changes we have been making, I thought maybe our pups could use some too! 
As you all know, our pups are pretty much our kiddos, we definitely treat them as such. 
To say they're spoiled rotten is an understatement...these guys are past the point of no return, they're SO BAD. (HaHa!) When they do something bad (which is often, Lol) I always tell him,
 "Babe, they're just babies!" (LMAO!)

A year or two ago when the brand we were feeding them started having all these recalls on their dog foods/snacks, we immediately took them off of it and swapped them to another brand that has natural and simple ingredients. We can definitely tell a difference! Our dogs love it because it has real veggie pieces in it and our chi-weenie, Kizzie, no longer has the tummy problems she had when she was on the other brand. With our dogs being like our kids, we only want the best for them. I started looking into recipes so I could start making their treats and know exactly what is in them. I ordered some cookie cutters that came with a few other doggie type shapes (paw print, dog house, and a dog silhouette) but I stuck with the bone shape this time as it was my first time making these and our dogs love their bones.
Of course, Pinterest never fails and I got a wide array of recipes to choose from! After looking through several recipes and finally deciding, I made these Bacon Cheddar Dog Treats and they definitely did not disappoint the pups! These have to be their favorite thing ever right now! And since they're made with "people food" we actually got to eat one to test them out as well and let me just say, they taste pretty good! Lol.

I strongly urge everyone who has fur-babies to do research on the food they feed their swap to more natural dog foods to pro-long their life span... there have been so many awful recalls where plastic, metal, or other harmful substances were found in dog foods by bigger name brands.

 I promise your pups will appreciate and love you even more for these homemade treats... and they're so fun and easy to make!
Being able to eat them too, you could even share one or two together! Lol!

Bacon Cheddar Dog Treats
4 strips Bacon (cooked crispy)
1/2 c. Shredded Cheddar Cheese
1 1/2 c. Milled Oatmeal
2 Large Eggs
Additional Milled Oatmeal
  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • Combine bacon, cheese, and oatmeal in mixing bowl. Allow mixer to break bacon and cheese up into little bits.
  • Add eggs to the dry mixture to form a thick sticky dough.
  • Dust surface of counter with additional milled oatmeal, to prevent sticking.
  • Roll dough out to approximately 1/4 of an inch. Use cookie cutters to cut out desired shapes.
  • Bake treats on a parchment paper lined baking tray for approximately 20 minutes (slightly longer if treats are larger). Treats will be a pale-ish brown when they're ready.
  • Allow to cool completely before feeding to your pet.
***Note: I just used my food processor and quick oats to make the milled oatmeal, I also put my bacon in with it to chop it up!
