Sweet potato chews; a healthy, chewy treat for your dog!

I love this time of year, the cooler air, the leaves, the hikes and agility!

Another thing I really love are the sweet potato chews that Mum likes to make for us since sweet potatoes are a staple in our fall shopping bag.

Today we sharing are favorite recipe that you can share with all your dog loving friends and family:

  • Wash a sweet potato (organic is best and we peel them).
  • Cut down the middle lengthwise.
  • Then cut long lengthwise slices about 1/4 of an inch wide (thick).
  • Place them in a single layer on a cookie sheet (use a stainless steel cookie sheet for healthier cooking).
  • Put in the oven at 250 degrees for about 3 hours. This leaves them kind of chewy, but you could also bake them a little longer to get them crunchy.
Here are variations that we've enjoyed:

Waffle cut them for more fun with a mandolin.
Cut them in slices and they will cook more quickly.

We like to keep them out in an opened bag and let the moisture dissipate a little, then we will store them in the fridge...we keep them for about 4-5 days or so, since we like to eat them up pretty quickly :)
