DIY: Bacon Cheddar Puppy Treats!

Seriously - how do you say no to this face? 

That's the thing - I can't say no to her. 

What does that mean? I go through dog treats like they're going out of style. Mysty & Wiener are PIGLETS! Their favorite treats are Meaty Bones - but sometimes I take a crack at making some myself. It was time for another round of treats - so I found a new recipe!  

The folks at WiltonArmetale wanted me to try out this griddle grillpan ($49.99). It's not quite warm enough for grilling - but I wanted to at least test it out in the oven. The nice thing about their pan is that it can go on the stovetop as well. I think we'll be making pancakes very soon!

The recipe for the puppy treats was pretty simple - mix flour & baking powder - then add bacon!!! I bought the pre-cooked bacon and diced it up.

Next add cheddar cheese - cuz all dogs love cheese! One of my friends even has a dog NAMED CHEESE!

Then add a cup of milk and you get a sticky thick dough. It was a bit tough to work with but I managed.

From there you make balls out of the dough. I had to add flour to my hands to be able to make balls out of these. I did spray the pan really lightly since it doesn't appear or claim to be non-stick.

I really liked how lightweight the pan was. The rim around the edge is great too - in case there is oil or juices - you don't have to worry about it leaking over. This would be great in the summer to grill up peppers, onions & mushrooms to go with steak. It also won't crack, chip, rust, dent or tarnish!

The other cool thing is that they have a lot of shapes/sizes of those - so if that griddle isn't what you need - they might have something else that works better for you! (bread serving tray, fry pan)

After baking them for 20 minutes - you've got some delectable little puppy biscuits! 

The dogs liked these biscuits a lot - Mysty (big dog) liked them more than Wiener. I'm not sure if they were a little dry or just too big for him. They're not difficult to make and have pretty common ingredients - plus you can substitute as needed with whats in the fridge. I mean - you could even throw veggies in there! I kept them in an air-tight container and they lasted a couple of weeks.
