Meatless Monday – Sweet Potato Biscuits for Fido

My dogs love sweet potato.

I found this recipe on the internet the other day but I can’t remember where…..I had copied it to my “notebook” but not the link, blah,blah,blah de blah. 😀

The dogs love their biscuits and these are at the top of their list.

These are actually quite good.

😀 yes I’ve tried them. 😀

sweet potato

Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.

Cut off one side of the sweet potato lengthwise, as close to the edge as possible. Cutting the side of the potato first allows you to then turn the potato onto this flat surface that you have just created. Having a stable area to rest the potato will make it easier to cut the potato into slices. Don’t discard that first piece, it comes out just as yummy as the rest!

2-3 Large Sweet Potatoes, washed thoroughly and dried

Preheat oven to 110° C (250° F)

Cut the rest of the potato into slices, no smaller than 1/4″.

Place them on the prepared baking sheets.

Bake for 3 hours, turning over after 90 minutes.

(Baking for 3 hours results in a soft, but chewy dog treat. If your dog prefers more of a crunch, then bake for an additional 20-30 minutes).

When you take the sweet potatoes out of the oven, they may at first appear to be too soft. Let them cool completely on a wire rack before you decide whether or not to bake them longer. This is because they will continue to dry or harden while cooling.

Storing – Although these treats are dried, you will want to keep them in the refrigerator for up to 3 weeks. You can freeze them for up to 4 months.
