Today's flavor is ham and cheese - a crunchy doggy version of one of my favorite sandwiches - and with these around, I don't have to share my sandwich...although I usually do!
Try them out on your 4-leggers....
Ham and Cheese Dog Biscuits
Prep time: 20 minutes
Bake time: 60 minutes
Preheat oven to 325 degrees
1-1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 cup wheat germ
1 cup oatmeal
1 cup cornmeal
1/2 cup dry milk
1/3 cup oil or butter/margerine
1-1/4 cup hot water
1 jar ham baby food
1 cup grated cheese (I used colby/jack, but any kind will work)
Combine ingredients to make stiff dough. Turn out dough on well-floured surface and knead 8 or 10 times, adding extra flour if necessary. Roll out about 1/4 inch thick and cut with your choice of cookie cutter. (No cookie cutter? You can also roll out the dough and use a knife or pizza cutter to cut it into squares.) Place on lightly greased cookie sheet, and bake for 1 hour at 325 degrees. Cool completely and store in an airtight container. Will keep for about 1 week (2 weeks if refrigerated)...if the dogs don't eat them sooner!
Recipe yield will depend on what size cookie cutter you use - I use a 2-1/2 inch round, and get about 48 biscuits per batch.
