Rose Mary Mogan Recipe

Makes about 48 bones
Prep Time:
Cook Time:

This recipe is for my friend Bobbi Auttonberry here at Just A Pinch, it is a recipe that she can make for her dog. Now that I have converted her husband to like Fried Cabbage Mama's Way, and Mama's Buttermilk Cornbread, the dog doesn't get left over corn bread any more. So here is a recipe just for the dogs. My dog loves them and I hope yours will too. This recipe makes a lot, so you may want to cut it in half the first time you make them, just to make sure. I do not use my dog bone cookie cutter anymore, I just roll them out by hand. When I have a few minutes to spare I like making these.


4 c
all purpose flour
3 c
2 Tbsp
brown sugar, firmly packed
1/2 c
vegetable oil
3 large
eggs, room temperature
1 c
2 pkg
beef gravy mix, or 1 beef bullion cube, crushed

Directions Step-By-Step

Mix all ingredients together & shape into dog bones, or any shape you like. Place on a lightly greased baking sheet & Bake At 300 degrees F. for one hour. Makes about 48 bones.
This recipe is also in my cookbook, and I have made it quite a few times when ever I have the time.
Please note: If you have a small dog and make the bones smaller, you may be able to get 48 pieces. But my dog is larger, so I made the bones accordingly, and I got 28 pieces, and she loves them.

Hello Karen, so glad you remembered to keep me posted about making these. Thank you so much. What a nice comment to receive so early in the A M. Thank you very much.

I am happy to hear that your two dogs loved them also. It pleases me greatly to know that everyone is happy. Because there are no preservatives in them I do not know how long they will last, but mine batch never lasts long enough to find out. Thanks again for your comments Karen & for keeping me posted about your approval..

Hi Rose Mary,
The residents and I made your doggie treats. Such an easy recipe and the residents loved making the little "logs". Nothing like getting your fingers right into the mix :) I would post a pic, but because of Resident Rights I can't. Just know that we will definitely be making these treats again for our visiting shelter dogs! I did bring a couple home to try them out on my dogs. My Chihuahua is a picky old man (11yrs) and he loved it! As did my American Bulldog! Next I am going to make these when my 4 yr old grand daughter visits, she will love helping grandma! Thanks again for the great recipe!!

Thanks Karen that is only 20 days away. I hope they enjoy doing it as much as I love making them for my dogs. Looking forward to hearing from you afterwards. Have a blessed day. I am sure it is just as cold where you are, but it is -13 here at the moment, and the wind chill is even worse. So bundle up of up need to go out. Great to chat with you.
