It is no secret that most restaurants throw away their leftover food at the end of the night. A restaurant in Highland Park has been searching for a way to reduce waste and is now giving some of their leftover food a new life by turning them into dog treats.
Max’s Delicatessen and Restaurant has been looking for new uses for their day old bagels; many unsold bagels are thrown away on a daily basis because they do not contain any preservatives. Joey Morelli, chef and creator of Dawgy Bagels, takes these bagels and mixes them with bacon grease and bone meal. The bagels are then baked for a crisper, fresh product that has a new shelf life of 30 days.
Dawgy Bagels have been tested and approved by Morelli’s friends’ dogs as well as his girlfriend’s dog. He also served Dawgy Bagels at a pet walk benefitting The Puppy Mill Project. The result was very positive; dogs found Dawgy Bagels absolutely delicious!
“We use bacon grease and bone meal making these bagels very irresistible to dogs,” adds Morelli. “What’s not to love for dogs when it comes to bacon and bone meal? They’ll make great stocking stuffers for your furry friends!”
Dawgy Bagels can be purchased from Max’s Deli at $3.95 per dozen. Max’s Deli is located at 191 Skokie Blvd, Highland Park, IL 60035. For more information, please give them a call at (847) 831-0600 or visit their website.
