cheeseburger (with bacon)

Cheeseburger dog treats
It’s raining and the BBQ plans have been thwarted yet again. :(
While the boys stare longingly at the grill waiting for the rain to stop I decided that at least the dogs could enjoy some cheese burgers, even if we couldn’t, and enjoy these treats they did.

cheeseburger with bacon dog treat recipe


  • 1 cup Ground Beef cooked and strained
  • 1 1/2 cup shredded Cheddar Cheese
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 2/3 cup Whole Wheat Flour
  • 1/4 cup Water


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
  • Allow cheddar cheese to warm to room temperature and in a large bowl combine all ingredients until well mixed.
  • Roll out dough on floured surface 1/2 inch thick. Cut into shapes with the cutter of your choice.
  • Place treats on an prepared baking sheet and poke with a fork to prevent air bubbles. Cook for 15-20 minutes.
  • Makes 2 to 3 dozen bones.


Did someone say 'Bacon up that Cheeseburger?'
Okay maybe it was me looking for an excuse to make bacon, but who doesn't love a good bacon cheeseburger?
Just add three slices of cooked and crumbled bacon to the recipe for bacon cheese burger treats.

    We have yet to make our own dog treats, but I think this recipe might have to be our first!

    Oh my gosh. When I thought it couldn’t get any better, you added bacon. My little man is at the vet today. I think he needs bacon cheeseburger treats to make it all good again.
    Thank you so much for sharing! Good luck with the human BBQ.

    Just baked a double batch and my bassett hounds believe it is Christmas!!! They love these treats. Two questions though. Do they need to be refrigerated since they contain hamburger meat? Is there a simple way to alter the recipe without using hamburger to make them less pricey? I know I can get the beef flavor by adding boullion cubes to the water, but what about making up for the consistency of the dough. Thanks for a great recipe!!
