Bacon Cornmeal Dog Biscuit Recipe


Bacon Cornmeal Dog Biscuit Recipe

These homemade dog treats for your special pooch are bursting with flavors dogs love. These easy to make bacon cornmeal dog biscuits will have your pet barking for more.

Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 35 Minutes

Ingredients:

2 cups Whole Wheat Flour
½ cup Cornmeal
½ cup Bacon Grease (approximately)
5 TBSP Olive Oil (or vegetable)
¼ cup Water (may increase in ¼ cup increments to 1 cup)

Directions:

• Preheat oven to 350˚.
• In a bowl, add whole wheat flour and corn meal; mix well.
• Make sure your bacon grease is cooled, but if it is hardened, microwave to liquefy it. (Place it in the microwave. Microwave on 50% power for 10 seconds. Stir well. If it’s still thick, repeat once or twice until liquid.)
• Add liquefied bacon grease to flour mixture; mix.
• Add oil and water beginning with ¼ cup of water. This may be enough, or you may require additional water (up to one cup) added ¼ cup at a time – until the dough forms a ball.
• Roll dough onto a floured (with corn meal or whole wheat flour) surface and cut into dog bone shapes with a cookie cutter or use a knife to create sticks or squares.
• Place on parchment paper lined baking sheet.
• Bake 25-35 minutes at 350˚ until crispy and golden.
• Cool completely before serving.

• Makes 12 servings Bacon Cornmeal Dog Biscuits

Notes:

• Make certain your dog is not allergic to whole wheat flour or cornmeal (or bacon grease) before making and serving these. Many white dogs develop “tears”. This is usually (but not always) a wheat allergy. If you are not certain if your dog has allergies, use caution when introducing a new food or treat to your pooch, and consult your dog’s veterinarian.

• I listed 12 as the servings, but that will really depend on how large you make your biscuits. A small portion will make many more, a larger portion will make less. It really depends on the size of your dog.

• Tip: After making bacon, store the bacon grease in the refrigerator in a covered container until ready to use. You can probably freeze it as well and make these dog biscuits when they are convenient for you.

DIY Ruler Table Runner

Note: This tutorial is from scratch. If you do not want to to purchase fabric and sew a table runner, you can start with a plain table runner measuring 14 inches by 72 inches. Then cut to the numbers and painting of this tutorial.

DIY Ruler Table Runner Materials:

• 2½ yards Fabric- This tutorial uses a tan denim since the fabric is thick. You need to choose a fabric that will not allow the paint to seep through – pick a “dense” fabric for this project.
Tape Measure
• Straight Edge Ruler
• Scissors
Straight Pins
• Sewing Machine
Needle
• Thread (that matches your fabric choice)
Iron
• Pencil
• Printer
Black Fabric Paint
• Small Paint Brush
Scotchgard Fabric Protector

DIY Ruler Table Runner Instructions:

• Start by making your table runner.
• You want to cut your fabric to be 15 inches by 73 inches.

Tip: For a little short cut simply fold your fabric lengthwise inwards 15 inches and pin.
• Then take your scissors and cut at the fold to end up with two strips of fabric measuring 15 inches by 90 inches.
• Then measure out 73 inches and cut.
• Now you should have two strips of fabric that are 15 inches by 73 inches.

Pin together and sew around the edges with your sewing machine using a 1/2 inch seam, be certain to leave about a 5 inch opening in order to flip your runner right side out.
• Once you have turned the table runner right side out you can hand sew the opening shut with your needle and thread.
• You should end up with a runner measuring 14 inches by 72 inches (the width is not as important as the length).
Iron your fabric now to ensure a nice flat surface to make your marks.
• Using your measuring tape, start by measuring out every 12 inches – do this on the top and the bottom of your material.
• Then use your straight edge and draw a straight line with your pencil. (These are your foot markers)
• Now use your measuring tape and pencil, measure every inch and a half and place a small mark – again do this on the top and bottom, but do not draw a straight line this time.
• Within one foot you should have 7 marks. Using your straight edge ruler extend the marks as follows within each foot
*one inch
* two inches
* one inch
* two and a half inches
* one inch
* two inches
* one inch
Do this for all 6 feet of your runner.

• Using your computer printer, print off numbers 1-6 using Century Font with the font size being 500.
• Cut the numbers out.
• Place the numbers in order on your runner with each number to the left side of its corresponding foot line.

• Now its time to paint!
• Simply trace all of your pencil marks with your paint brush. Note: I have not tried it, but this could be a fabulous short cut! Especially for the line marks – just make sure it matches your black fabric paint.

Notes

• Pressure canners these days are much better than they used to be. This is the Pressure Cooker used for this tutorial.

• Want to make quart jars? Remember there are two pints in a quart, so simply double this recipe to get 4 quarts of canned green beans.

• In this tutorial, the rings were built into the lid. If you have the old lids + rings + bands, no problem, it works the same way.

• Make sure you sterilize all the parts of your canning jar: the jar itself, lids, bands. Some people just use REALLY hot sink water to get the jars good and hot and clean. You can also run the jars through the dishwasher instead to make sure they are clean and come out hot. And there is the old boil it all on the stove so they come out squeaky clean and remain hot.

• This recipe makes 4 pints or 2 quarts.

• To prepare the canned squash for consumption, heat it up straight from the jar with a bit of additional seasoning, drain and use it for squash casserole or sauteed in a pan with a little butter as a side dish.
