Sweet Potato & Leftover Turkey Homemade Dog Treats

November 17, 2022 | Pet Food

These easy, 4-ingredient Homemade Dog Treats perfectly use up leftover Thanksgiving turkey (or chicken). And, they freeze well, too. Great for stocking up, or for make-ahead DIY holiday gifts!

PREP TIME: 7 minutes
COOK TIME: 30 minutes
TOTAL TIME: 37 minutes


  • 1/2 cup PLAIN mashed, cooked sweet potatoes
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 2 cups finely chopped, cooked turkey or chicken
  • 2 cups whole wheat flour or white whole wheat flour


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine sweet potatoes, water, and egg, stirring until thoroughly incorporated. Add chicken and flour and stir again until combined. Batter will be very thick and sticky.
  3. To make rectangular biscuits, use a rubber spreader to spread the dough evenly onto a parchment-lined baking sheet to form a rectangle (approximately 10″ x 14″) at about 1/2″ thickness.
  4. Use a knife or pizza cutter to score the dough into rectangles of whatever size you’d like. (When I make these as shown in my photos, I score 8 rows x 12 rows to equal 96 treats.)
  5. Bake for about 30 minutes, until the dog treats are lightly golden brown.
  6. Cool completely and then break along the score lines or use a knife/pizza cutter to cut along the score lines.
  7. Store in the refrigerator or (for longer storage) in zippered freezer bags in the freezer (thaw before serving).

Your yield will be about 48 tablespoon-sized biscuits, or about 130 teaspoon-sized biscuits.
