A couple of weeks ago, we had a big freezer clean-out here and the next day I cooked THREE turkeys! I then deboned the turkeys, then froze the meat and the broth. (Before freezing the broth, I refrigerated it overnight so the fat would congeal on the surface; I then tossed that fat.)
So today I decided to put that turkey to use with some oatmeal biscuits for the dogs! This was a very easy recipe to make…and very popular!
- 1 3/4 cups whole wheat flour
- 2 1/2 cups quick cooking oats
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 cup turkey (or chicken) broth
- 1 1/2 cups shredded turkey (or chicken)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and grease your cookie sheets then it’s time to start mixing ingredients.
Mix the dry ingredients in a large bowl and set that aside. In your blender, add the broth and turkey then blend until it’s the consistency of baby food. Add the meat mixture to the dry ingredients and mix well.
Turn out the dough on a lightly floured surface and knead. This is a heavy dough so it takes some muscle! Roll out the dough and cut into shapes; I used bone-shaped cutters but you can make things easy and use a pizza cutter, too!
Put the biscuits on the pregreased cookie sheets with a little room between each (you won’t need too much room…these don’t spread out so just make sure they’re not touching.) Pop the cookie sheets in the oven for about 25 minutes until they’re golden brown.
Be sure to cool the biscuits completely before serving to your dog or refrigerating. Our dogs loved these!
