- 2 cups of boiling water
- 2 cubes of beef bouillon

Follow these easy instructions to make Fido’s Footballs.
Preheat the oven to 350 (F) degrees.
Heat the water to boiling. Pour two cups of boiling water over the two beef bouillon cubes, Stir gently until the bouillon is completely melted.
Add the egg and vegetable oil, and stir well with a sturdy wooden spoon.
