It’s Dog Biscuit Appreciation Day. Doggone it.

Did you know it’s Dog Biscuit Appreciation Day?
Doggone it!  A great idea might be a kitchen-made dog biscuit for your patron’s “doggie bag”.
Just a lil extra patron appreciation.
The Menu Shoppe has it covered…
hounded with some great ideas…
Did you make these…for me??

Some homemade dog treats almost look as good as small plate goodies.
Bacon Cheese Bagels
5 slices bacon, crisply cooked and crumbled
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
3 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon vegetable oil
1 cup water — as needed
Preheat oven to 350F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
In a large bowl combine whole wheat flour, baking powder, and baking soda until well mixed. Add bacon, cheese, oil and water to flour combine and knead until dough is formed.
Roll dough into balls about 1-2 inches in diameter. Poke a hole through each ball with the end of a wooden spoon. Bake on prepared baking sheet for 45 to 50 minutes.
Cool and refrigerate.

Sweet Potato Dog Chew
Like rawhide—minus the preservatives. Only natural goodness.
1 Large Sweet Potato, washed & dried
Preheat oven to 250° F
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Cut off one side of the sweet potato lengthwise, as close to the edge as possible. Cutting the side of the potato first allows ease to turn the potato onto a flat surface that will make it simpler to slice.
Cut the rest of the potato into 1/3″ slices.
Place them on the prepared baking sheet.
Bake for 3 hours, turning half way through.
Baking for 3 hours results in a soft, but chewy dog treat. If your dog prefers more of a crunch, then bake for an additional 20-30 minutes. When you take the sweet potatoes out of the oven, they may at first appear to be too soft. Let them cool completely on a wire rack before you decide whether or not to bake them longer. This is because they will continue to dry or harden while cooling.
Storing – Although these treats are dried, you will want to keep them in the refrigerator for up to 3 weeks. Or freeze  for up to 4 months.
…and then its the art of the cookie cutter…
