Homemade Dog Treats: Sweet Potato

Last year I made homemade dog treats for the first time.  I did not realize how easy it would be and wonder why I never tried making them before.  All 5 dogs loved them (my 3 dachshunds and my sister’s 2 labs).  My sister and I even enjoyed a few ourselves!

Since this was so easy AND inexpensive, I have decided to make more as hostess gifts.  With a bottle of wine for the ‘people’ and a bag of homemade dog treats for the ‘dogs,’ we are sure to make an impression!

2 Sweet Potatoes

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Peel sweet potatoes and cut into 1/4 inch thick rounds.  Place sweet potato rounds, in a single layer, on two non-stick baking sheets.  Bake for 2 1/2 to 3 hours, until fully dehydrated.  Flip after 1 1/2 hours.  Let cool and test on your dog.

    I made these few years ago when my dog was on a restricted diet. I bought the thin Japanese sweet potatoes and ran them through the food processor for a quick slice before baking them. She LOVED them.

      I have never tried the Japanese sweet potatoes…maybe this weekend I will whip up a batch for the dogs!

    I’ve bought these before and they were kinda pricey.. I’m sure you way works perfectly and I will be doing it the next time I get to the grocery store to buy some sweet potatoes. I’m sure yams would work as well.. Thank you!!
