Italian Beefy Bites Dog Treats

If your dog seems to prefer sweet over savory (but you’re tired of making peanut butter treats), this dog treat recipe is definitely worth a try. I use leftover hamburger or spaghetti meat. This is also good if you want to get the meat that is on manager's special. Use it right away though.

Ingredients

  • 2

    cups cooked ground beef (about 2/3 lb. raw)

  • 1

    can (6oz) tomato paste

  • 1/2

    cup grated Parmesan cheese

  • 1 1/4

    cups all-purpose flour

  • 1/2

    cup nonfat dry milk

  • 2

    large eggs

Directions

1. Preheat your oven to 350 and lightly grease 2 baking sheets. 2. Brown the ground beef. 3. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the cooked beef crumbles to a large mixing bowl. 4. Add the tomato paste and toss until the beef is coated. 5. Add the cheese, flour, dry milk and eggs and mix well. Note: I use a combination of stirring and “mushing” to get all the dry ingredients to incorporate. 6. Drop the mixture by teaspoonfuls onto your greased baking sheets. Note: These don’t really expand while baking, so drop them onto the sheet in a size that would work best for your dog. 7. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until the bottoms of the treats are a nice golden brown. Makes 50-60 bite-sized dog treats Store these in the refrigerator
