As a human, I feel that the things I love most in life are NOT recommended in large doses. For example- CHEESE! Why, oh why? I’m sure you can relate to me on this one and sadly, this also holds true for dogs. Making this cheesy dog fries recipe is the first time I’ve ever given Luna cheese and she became an addict at first bite. It was like some kind of performance enhancement drug. The quickness she would sit or lay down on command was shocking and amazing. Her eyes never lost sight of me, like a tracking device ready to launch on their target. Behold, the amazing powers of cheese!
I found myself snacking on these cheese fries quite a lot! Often, I’d forget that I actually made them for her. “No Luna, these aren’t for you.” Oh, wait…

Did You Know?
Cheese can contribute to your dog’s calcium intake and the fat provides them with energy and helps to absorb other vitamins. However, cheeses are known to have a lot of calories, fat, and sodium. Just like their humans, we don’t NEED cheese. The healthiest choices would be mozzarella and cottage cheese. Fair warning, give cheese very sparingly- it’s a real special treat!
Tips & Tricks
* I didn’t use the whole 1/2 cup of water. The amount used depends on the type of flour.
* For an alternative flour, I like to use 50/50 brown rice flour and oat flour.
* Shut off the heat and leave the treats in the closed oven till it cools down for extra crunchy treats.
* If your dough is too dry, add water bit by bit. If too wet, gradually add more flour.
* Keep treats in a tightly sealed container for longer lasting freshness.
