Byron's Favorite Buttery Cheese Dog Biscuits
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 30 biscuits
  • 1½ cups quick oats
  • ½ cup corn meal
  • ¼ cup unsalted butter, cut up
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar or colby
  • 2 cups whole wheat flour (or any other flour but white)
  • ½-1 cup water*
  1. *Use only enough water to produce a rollable dough
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line 1-2 large baking sheets with parchment.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the oats, corn meal and cut-up butter.
  4. Pour in boiling water and stir until everything is moistened; let stand until it's room temperature.
  5. Mix in the cheese, flour and just enough water to get a rollable dough.
  6. Roll out ¼-inch thick and cut into your favorite shape(s). Even cutting in strips with a pizza cutter is OK because Fido won't me!!
  7. Place cut biscuits on prepared baking sheets. Bake for 30-35 minutes. DON'T REMOVE FROM OVEN! Just shut the oven off and let it cool down with the biscuits in there. This helps dehydrate them for storage.
  8. When totally cool, place in a sealed container.
  9. Makes about 2½-3 dozen depending on how they are cut. I got 2½ dozen with a "medium" dog bone cutter.
