Step 1: What You Need
All you need:
1lb of chicken livers
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 cup of all purpose flour
1 cup corn meal
Blender or food processor
18"x13" Jelly roll pan (or cookie sheet)
Non stick cooking spray (I use non stick aluminum foil)
Measuring cup and measuring spoons
Knife or pizza cutter
Go ahead and preheat your oven now to 400°.
Let's get mixing....
Step 2: Purée
If you can't find the livers in your local grocery store, ask someone in the meat department. They aren't big sellers, so they usually keep them in the back freezer.
Step 3: Add a Egg
Step 4: Secret Ingredient
Garlic is like dog catnip. Dogs love garlic.
While fresh garlic is not good for dogs because they can't digest the fiber, garlic powder is OK and passes through just fine.
Step 5: Time for the Dry Ingredients
Step 6: Put It in a Pan
Pour out the liver batter in the pan. Mixture is rather thick. Spread it out with a spoon to an even thickness (about 3/8").
Step 7: Pop Em in the Oven
Tip: After 5 minutes lightly pierce with a fork to avoid bubbling.
Step 8: Cutting the Treats
My bread knife is 1" wide so its easy to measure and cut. You can also use a pizza cutter with a straight edge, cut shapes with a cookie cutter or simply tear into hunks like a cave man.
Step 9: Happy Dog!
My dog goes crazy when I make these. They are aromatic and really gets her attention.
Step 10: Disclaimer:
I have never substituted any of these ingredients. If you do, your results will vary. I do not know what will happen if you do, so please don't ask in the comments....I don't know.
Cooking time will vary if made thicker or thinner. By how much? Again, please don't ask...I don't know.
It's a very simple recipe, with 5 ingredients, don't try to complicate it.
Please refrain from offering a better way to do it in the comments. If you have a better way, make an Instructable about it.
If you already made comments and asked silly questions I addressed above, you obviously didn't read this far down. Makes you feel silly right?
I personally feel that people who spoil their pets get exactly what they deserve...unconditional love!
