Now Playing: Quick Dog Biscuits with Salmon
Dog Biscuits- Part 2—this one's really quick!
My four dogs were very happy with their liver biscotti treats for Valentine's Day, but they were a little labor-intensive for the chef.
I decided I would try a quick drop biscuit in order to experiment with what was left of the Bisquick Gluten Free Baking Mix I bought the other day. I can tell you that this recipe also is "4 tails up"--meaning my two Yorkies and two Shepherds approve.
This is another recipe for a dog treat that is geared toward the allergy-prone dog. I mentioned that my dogs seemed to react to wheat flour and gluten with terrible skin itching. The baking mix I used contains rice flour and potato starch, baking soda and salt—so do not add any extra salt or seasoning. Now, I admit, I chose this product for convenience and because the rural store I stopped at that day didn't have any other options for gluten free flours. I plan to re-do this recipe with my own non-wheat and gluten-free flours and aluminum-free baking soda (and anyone who is reading this can easily adapt this recipe, too!)
NOTE: I used salmon in this recipe because I had a can of salmon available in my pantry, but you can easily substitute tuna or any leftover cooked fish you might have had for dinner. Or-- you can use canned pumpkin or cooked, mashed sweet potatoes—though you will need to add some milk or water to have the correct consistency.
