    Dogs: Bacon Yappetizers

    Source of Recipe

    From "Feed Your Best Friend Better" by Rick Woodford ("The Dog Food Dude")

    Recipe Introduction

    "It seems the best appetizers at a party are always wrapped in bacon. Using a small amount of bacon grease and cooked crumbled bacon imbues this treat with a scent that drives canine party guests crazy. If you want to get fancy about it, you can top them with a little grated Parmesan cheese while they are warm. Nutritional yeast is added for a good dose of B vitamins and combined with the garlic powder to ward off the worst kind of party guests - fleas."

    List of Ingredients

    2 slices bacon
    2 cups rye flour, plus more for rolling out
    cup nutritional yeast
    1 Tbsp baking powder
    tsp garlic powder
    ⅔ cup beef stock


    Preheat the oven to 350F. Lightly dust a baking sheet with flour.
    Cook the bacon in the microwave for 3 minutes on high power or in a skillet over medium heat until crisp. Drain the bacon and reserve 2 tablespoons of bacon grease.

    Mix the flour, yeast, baking powder, and garlic powder together in a large bowl. Mix the stock and reserved bacon grease together, and then mix into the dry ingredients. Crumble the bacon and blend into the mixture. Knead briefly to gather the dough into a ball and transfer directly to the baking sheet. Flatten the ball and shape into a square.

    Dust the top of the dough with additional flour and roll into a 10-inch square. Then cut with a pizza cutter into 1-inch squares. Bake for 20 minutes, or until firm. Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet, then break them apart at the cut lines.
