This month we welcome guest blogger Dawn Ford, co-owner of the Seattle Barkery, who has graciously offered to share one of her favorite dog treat recipes with us. If your dog has ever eaten dog treats from the Seattle Barkery, you may have wondered if you could make any of the treats yourself—just in case you aren’t near the Seattle Barkery store in downtown Seattle, or the bar, or the mobile treat wagon, … wherever it is on any given day. I vouch for the fact that Meaty Stix are easy to make, and my dogs pronounced them …”more please.”
Recipe: MEATY STIX
1.5 cup cooked ground beef, turkey, or chicken (can use canned tuna or salmon but use 1 cup)
3 cups all-purpose flour or can substitute grain free flour
Preheat oven to 350degrees.
Using a mixer, mix ground meat, egg and 1/2 cup water until well blended. Slowly add in your flour until a firm dough forms. If needed add in up to a 1/2 cup more water to get a perfect not too sticky, not too dry dough!
Remove dough from mixer and roll out into sticks (like picture) approximately 6 inches in length. Repeat until all dough is gone.
Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes, until stix are a light golden brown. Remove from oven, let cool and serve!
Store in refrigerator up to 10 days OR freeze up to 6 months.
These treats are soft and easy to break into bites for a smaller dog or a dog with missing or no teeth. Also easy to hide a pill in!
