Today I made Dog Biscuits

by Michelle on March 18, 2008


I’ve owned Rottweilers since 1978 and at that time everyone thought they were fat Dobermans!

In 1986 for our 2nd anniversary my husband presented me with a new Rottweiler puppy and we named him Watson. He was and still is the best dog I’ve ever owned and believe me I’ve owned many good dogs. But Watson was that special once-in-a-lifetime dog and I will never forget him.

Not long after we got Watson, I started fooling around with dog biscuit recipes. I finally hit the jackpot with one. Watson loved the darn things and used to lay in front of the oven while they were baking!

So I present to you, my very own recipe that I developed for my very special Watson!

Watson’s Biscuits
Recipe developed in the Kitchen of Big-Black-Dog

1 lb. of beef liver
1 tsp minced garlic or onion ***See Note
1 1/2 c. flour
1 c. yellow corn meal

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

When the liver is partially thawed, I cut it into bit sized pieces and put it in my food processor.

Process the liver until it is thoroughly minced actually it will be like liver mush.

Add garlic or onion, flour and cornmeal and process until well mixed.

On a well greased cookie sheet or 8″by11″ pan spread out the liver mixture about 1/4″ thick.

The above recipe will only make about half a pan, so don’t worry about filling the entire pan or sheet. If you want to totally fill the pan double the recipe.

Bake at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes. The biscuits bake quickly so keep an eye on them.

When the biscuits are done but still warm, cut into bit-sized pieces. If you wait until they are cooled it is much more difficult to cut.

Since the biscuits are mainly beef, they will spoil. I freeze the majority of the biscuits and keep a baggie full in the refrigerator for daily treats and defrost as necessary.

NOTE: I have been receiving some rather nasty comments about the onion or garlic in this recipe. I called my own Veterinarian and she said that the small amount, 1 tsp, in this recipe should not be a problem.  She continued and said that a medium sized dog, 30-40 lbs, would have to ingest at least a cup of chopped onion to “possibly” cause a problem.  I have made these biscuits since 1986 and to date I’ve had no problems with any of my dogs even the young puppies.   But if you’re in doubt just skip the onion or garlic, I’m sure your dog will love the biscuits with or without the onion or garlic.

    And if you’re thinking they taste like Liver Pate…you are correct. LOL!!!I can’t get the puppies to leave the back porch now. They just sit there and wait to come in and get another bit-o-biscuit!

    Hi Michelle,Wonderful making dog cookies, I do the same for my french poodle. My recipe : Peanut butter dog cookies is on my blog. You are welcome to stop by and visit me.I have develpped this recipe following a comment on the internet saying that french poodle develops bleeding eyes from all the dye in the commercial dog food. Well, now, I make her food and she doesn’t have those stains around the eyes anymore. So easy to do and so easy to maintain her white fur.take careLa Belle Aurore

    I love this idea! I’ve always wanted to make dog biscuits for my pups! What a great recipe!

    What Fun to have your pooch waiting by the oven for treats. My once in a lifetime golden,
    Callie, did this too. I used ground turkey, tomato paste, garlic powder & a little brewer’s yeast. Actually, this was a cat treat recipe, but Sparky didn’t mind sharing, Will give this liver recipe a try since Sparky likes liver. I would guess these would be great training treats too.

    […] Dog Treats will be a favorite of your dog as well. My dogs will do just about anything for my Watson’s Liver Biscuits and they react just about the same way with the Nutter Butter […]
