Now that the holidays are over, all the baking is finished and you can take a break from the kitchen. Or can you? Your Greyhound may be looking at you with those sad eyes, wondering why all the good smelling things in the kitchen never came his way.
Here are some quick and easy recipes for homemade Greyhound treats. They have all been hound tested and hound approved….guaranteed to get those tails wagging!
Angel’s Heavenly Treats:
½ cup cornmeal
6 Tablespoons vegetable oil
2/3 cup beef or chicken broth
2 cups whole wheat flour
2 teaspoon dried parsley
Mix flour, parsley and cornmeal, then add oil and broth to make the dough. Roll out dough and cut with cookie cutter (Angel prefers the bone shapes).
Bake at 350 degrees for 40-60 minutes, depending on how thick the dough is rolled out.
Turn biscuits over halfway through cooking. They are done when they feel firm and you can’t press the tip of a knife into them.
Cool completely, and let your hounds enjoy!
Larger batches can be made using 2 cups corn meal, 1 and 1/3 cups oil, 3 cups broth, 8 cups of flour, and 8 teaspoons of parsley.
2 boiled chicken breasts
2 teaspoons dried parsley
½ cup chicken broth
1 cup whole wheat flour
½ cup cornmeal
Puree chicken and parsley in a blender or food processor. Add chicken broth. After blending together, place mixture in a bowl and stir in rest of ingredients until it’s not sticky. Cut dough in half and form 2 rolls about 1 and ½ inches in diameter. Wrap in plastic wrap and chill thoroughly.
Slice into thin chips. Bake on lightly greased cookie sheet at 350 degrees for 25-40 minutes, turning halfway through. Chips will get hard after cooling down.
