Bacon Cheese Dog Bone Treats combine two favorite flavors of dogs--bacon and cheese. And they look as yummy as they taste—so I’m told…
In truth, these delicious looking homemade dog bones do look (and taste) good enough to grace any bakery shelf—dog bakery or people bakery!
And, using common ingredients from your kitchen, you can easily make these homemade dog treats in an afternoon.
This recipe was created for Natural Pet Bakery, and I used powdered cheeses (parmesan and cheddar) and soy bacon bits or real bacon bits (like you use on salads), which were mixed into the dough.
That was easy when I was making a large batch of cheese dog bones.
However, if you’d like to add a little glitz to your dog treats, you can do it this way... Just before you finish baking your dog bones, sprinkle them with shredded cheddar cheese and bacon bits. Return them to the oven and heat until they are melted.
You’ll end up with dog bones that have the delicious look that you see in the photo.

If you dry these treats properly in the oven, you will be able to store these Baco Cheese Dog Bone Treats at room temperature in a Fire Hydrant Ceramic Cookie Jar for up to 3 months.
However, if you melt fresh cheddar cheese on top of the cheese dog bones, store them in the refrigerator, in an airtight food storage container to prevent the possibility of mold.
