Bacon & Sweet Potato Dog Treats
5 Tbsp. fresh bacon fat (see note below)
1/2 c. sweet potato, mashed well
4 c. flour
1 c. low sodium broth
1 egg, beaten
Preheat oven to 350°. Lightly coat baking pan with cooking spray.
In large bowl, combine bacon fat, egg, and sweet potato. When thoroughly combined, add broth and mix well again. Don’t worry if bacon fat gets solid and hard to mix. That will happen later when you add the flour.
Slowly add flour and mix well in between. Once you get to a thick mixture, you can take your hands and squish it to blend well, too. This helps to make sure the bacon fats are blended well and not in clumps throughout the dough. (Be sure to remove any rings first)
Lay out onto floured board or counter. Roll out to desired thickness. Don’t get too thin or they will be easy burned and extra crispy. Cut into desired shapes or use a pizza cutter and make squares.
Place onto baking pan, making sure not to touch each other. Bake 35 minutes or until golden on the bottom. They may seem slightly soft when touched. However, they do crisp up after they cool.
Keep in freezer for longer lasting treats. You can keep in refrigerator for up to 2 wks. Do not leave out of coldness. They have no preservatives and will mildew and rot in just hours, depending on how warm your home is.
NOTE: When you fry up bacon, save the fat in a container and keep frozen. Then when you need to make your dog treats, take out and thaw. You only want to freeze it in 5 Tbsp. measurements though. Otherwise you will lose it when you thaw.
