GOOD MOOD DOG TREATS

LIVER BROWNIES

Preface: Credit given to my friends and hosts in Edmonton, Canada – Tannis and Tim Tupper, who initially shared this recipe with me. I have added to the original and encourage others to experiment with the ingredients, to match their personal preferences. Good luck!

STEP 1

Add the following in a blender and puree on high for 60 seconds (Wet Ingredients):

2                           Eggs

1/2 cube               Butter (melted)

1/4 cup                 Molasses

1/2 cup                 Beef Broth

1 cup                  Blue Berries

1/2 tsp                  Minced Garlic

1/2 tsp                  Crushed Ginger

1 to 1-1/2 lb.         Beef Liver (uncooked)

===============================================================

STEP 2

Add the following in a large mixing bowl and stir thoroughly (Dry Ingredients):

1 cup                    Corn Meal

1 cup                    Corn Flour

1 cup                    Wheat Germ

1 cup                    Powdered Milk

===============================================================

STEP 3

Pour the wet ingredients from the blender into the bowl with the dry ingredients and stir until completely homogeneous. It should have the consistency of pancake mix. Let the final mixture sit and rest for 15 minutes. This will insure adequate flavor absorption. Preheat the oven to 300 degrees.

===============================================================

STEP 4

Line a *large baking pan with parchment paper. Stir the final mixture one more time before pouring it into the pan. Spread evenly and then sway and tilt the pan back and forth so that the entire mixture fills the pan and is level.

*A large size baking pan (L x W x H) 15.7″ x 9.6″ x 1.3″ will produce a 1/2 inch thick end product. For thinner 1/4 inch thick product, use 2 pans.

Place pan in the oven at 300 degrees for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes, turn off the oven and allow another 10 minutes of baking. Remove pan from oven and let completely cool. Eject baked product from pan. It should come out in one solid piece. Cut the final product into the desired size squares. My favorite thing about this recipe is that the final product is firm, moist, and cuts into large or small pieces, without crumbling.

Note: This product needs to be refrigerated. It can also be frozen and easily thawed for later use.
