Beef Liver/Cornbread "brownies"

by Mark
(Kelso, WA, USA)

1 lb. beef liver
2 8-9oz boxes corn muffin mix
1 crushed garlic clove (optional)
2 eggs
2/3 cup water
1 Tbsp margarine
1/2 cup flour
1/4 tsp seasoning salt (optional)

Combine liver, garlic, eggs, water, margarine, and seasoning salt in blender and puree. Pour into a bowl.

Blend in corn muffin mix. Stir in flour gradually until it becomes a cake batter consistency (mud for the men).

Pour into a greased cake pan (spray the pan with PAM or paint it with melted margarine). A frying pan will do in a pinch. Bake in a preheated oven @ 375 degrees for 18-20 min. (If you stab it with a fork and the fork comes out with no wet batter on it, it's done).

Remove from oven and let cool for 10 min. Cut into squares, offer one up, and watch the love (they'll probably run off with it!)

Dog Jelly!

by Emma
(London)

This is not a training treat. It's more of a treat to put in a dish and offer to your dog as an occasional treat. I mainly just make it every 2 weeks or so and give it to my dogs the same day I make it. Takes me about 5 mins to make one jelly. (Enough to serve one dog and using a blender)

You will need
Liver (I use beef liver but up to you)
Natural organic yoghurt
A splash of honey
Melted cheese
Fruits (Apples, pears...)
Veg (Carrots..)
Cold water

1. Grab a mixing bowl and put the liver, yoghurt and melted cheese in. Stir it well using a wooden spoon. I recommend cutting the liver up first. Now add the splash of honey. Stir again

2. Grab a blender and put all the fruits and veg in. If you don`t have a blender add a little water and whisk and mash it up. That works almost as well.

3. Tip the fruit and veg mixture into the jelly and stir. Add a little cold water to the jelly and stir again. Give it a really good final stir and either serve then or pop it in the fridge until later.

Dogs adore this dog jelly and it is a rare and tasty treat (too much is bad for them and it is not as special then either).


Emma, what a lovely healthy recipe and the directions are so nicely written - thank you! I do have one question, however, and that is the quantities you use. Would you say that you make a handful of jelly for each dog or a couple of tablespoons? Or do you give as much as you would feed for a meal?

If you do have more precise measurements, please add them to the Comments section below so that others can make this homemade dog treat as well. Jo

Measurements
by: Emma

It depends on the size of the dog. I feed my Labrador a handful as a treat now and then but smaller dogs will only require a few spoons full.
I'm 11 by the way, so sorry for any grammar mistakes ;)

Thanks, Emma - I think you're doing quite well in the grammar department! Feel free to submit more of your ideas... Jo

Banjo's Favorite Chicken-Liver "Brownies"

by Ginger
(Santa Barbara, CA)

This is a very easy (and affordable) recipe for "dog brownies" that was given to me by a fellow member of the Dog.com community forum. I wish I knew the author's name so I could give her credit, because these are my dog Banjo's all-time favorite treats! Make a batch or two, and freeze them--that way, you always have "special" treats on hand for when your dog REALLY deserves a reward! Just make sure to label them--you definitely don't want to mistake these for "regular" brownies!!

**Liver Brownies**
Ingredients:
~ Approx. one pound or tub of liver, with juices (I use Chicken Liver, because I find it to be a bit less "smelly" when it cooks, PLUS it comes in smaller chunks so you have to do very little prep-work. But feel free to use beef liver if you prefer!)

~2 cups Whole Wheat Flour

~ OPTIONAL: 1 or 2 Tbsp Flax Oil, Olive Oil, or Salmon Oil (I like to include flax oil because it is good for the dog's skin and coat, and I happen to have it on hand, but it is not required) Don't use TOO much oil, or the brownies will be too rich for your dog's digestion.

~OPTIONAL: Any spices you think your dog would like, *EXCEPT* onions, or anything HOT/SPICY, of course. Some people throw in a clove or two of fresh garlic, but I choose not to just in case it's bad for my dog. (Personally, I don't bother with any spices--and my dog LOVES these as-is!)

Directions: Place the liver--WITH its juices--into a food processor or blender. If you are using beef liver, be sure chop it up a bit first. If using chicken liver, I use a pair of kitchen shears to snip up particularly large chunks into smaller bits while still in the tub, and then dump it all into the blender. Add any spices you are using, PLUS the oil if you are using that. Blend well, until mostly liquefied.

Pour the liquefied liver into a large bowl, and stir in the 2 cups of whole wheat flour. Mix well. (if necessary, add some water to make it easier to stir) The consistency should be moist and spreadable, but not *too* watery.

Glob the whole thing onto a baking sheet with edges, or a large brownie pan, and spread to about *1 inch deep*. (I like to use those cheap disposable foil pans you can buy at the grocery store, but just about anything will work) Bake at 325 F for about 20 minutes (25 if you want them a bit crunchy). When cool, cut into tiny pieces with a pizza wheel (I make them about the size of a crouton, because they are so meaty--a little goes a long way with these!).

Once they are cool, take the amount you will use within 3 to 5 days, and put them into a tupperware container (or zip-lock bag); store in the refrigerator. Return the rest to the cookie sheet and freeze before bagging. These can be stored in the freezer in an air-tight container (or freezer bags) for many months or more.

Note: if you have a dog that is on a diet, or has sensitive digestion, and you don't want to give too many of these treats at once, here's a great tip! Take 5-10 of these little brownie pieces and place them in a zip lock bag along with a small handful of your dog's regular kibble...shake well, and voila! Liver-flavored kibble treats! Your dog will go for the kibble as if it's a special treat! I do this when I'm doing some clicker-training or if I'm placing these in my dog's Kong, so she won't get TOO much liver at once, but she will still be very excited about the treats!

HEALTHY, CHEAP DOG TREAT THAT'S OH SO POPULAR!

by Angela Corvaia
(Texas)

This is a cornbread, liver and garlic treat. It is cooked similar to cornbread, but adds the pureed liver and garlic before cooking. My dog won't leave the grill till it's done!

Easy and CHEAP!

1) Take Jiffy Cornbread Mix: 49 cents. Mix as directed. (Some dogs might be allergic to eggs and/or milk. Leave out anything as needed)
2) Puree (or cut up, finely) 1 pound of liver (my dog prefers chicken, but beef is great, too).
3) Add 1 Tbsp Raw Minced Garlic (or Powder, if you wish)
4) Mix all together, adding dry ingredients (such as oatmeal or cornflour or wheat flour as needed), keep it at cake batter consistency.

Bake at 350F until it looks like cornbread should. My husband will NOT let me cook this indoors (it smells really bad), but the grill handles it fine. Let it cool, then cut into treat sizes and freeze. This freezes well and I allocate it out in the fridge as treats.

Try it once and see how much your pets, both dog and cats, LOVE the aroma, texture and taste.

I make three batches at once and then defrost as needed. One batch lasts one month for my 75 pound dog.

garlic is bad for dogs
by: Anonymous

You should look into what you can and can not feed dogs before feeding them anything.

Jo's reply: Actually, my understanding is that you can feed your dog some garlic without ill effects - you just don't want to continuously feed them a lot of garlic at one time such as whole cloves.

If you give this in "treat size" pieces as mentioned, you will only be giving a little garlic powder at one time, and that should be okay.

Dried Liver or Heart Treats

by Kailey Rhoades
(Washington)

These treats are wonderful! The dogs love them, they are easy and fairly quick to make, and, for me, are free!

You need;
*Beef, lamb, venison, etc. liver or heart. (I used both venison and beef liver and heart)
*An oven or food dehydrator.
*Scissors
*Small Ziploc bags

It is best to start with partly frozen meat as it is easier to cut then.
Cut it in to strips as big as you feel like but only about an inch thick.
Lay these strips on your dehydrator racks or on a jelly roll pan.
Place in oven at 200 degrees or dehydrator on your "meat" setting. It takes 2-4 hours in the oven and about 12 hours in the dehydrator. Warning! If using a dehydrator, the blood does make a big mess in the bottom.
Remove and use scissors to cut it into bite size pieces. Or however big you want. Or leave in strips for chews.

LOVE this tip!!!
by: Lisa

Maybe because I do it myself I have gotten lazy these days and just cut it into chucks and freeze. I give it to them frozen. 10% of a dog's diet should have organ meats which makes this tip a great one. Thanks for posting it.
