Sweet Potato Dog Treats

In an effort to make sure our dogs (Queenie & Rugby) live long beautiful lives, Megan and I have decided that we are going to try to make them dog treats instead of feeding them the junk off our plates all the time. This means adding dog treats to our weekly meal prep. We decided to start off pretty easy: sweet potato chews! We basically sliced a sweet potato to roughly 1/2″ thickness, put them in there oven at 250°F for 3 hours, flipping them after each hour. Voila! We keep these in a jar by the dinner table so that they are on hand when our girls are working their best puppy dog eyes for our dinner. So far, they don’t seem to know the difference (and if they do, they sure don’t seem to mind!). We also tried cutting them into 1/4″ strips and putting them in a dehydrator for approximately 24 hours for a firmer/crispier texture. Both are delicious according to the dogs!
