Cooking for Our Pets

I know this is a little strange that I usually post recipes for human consumption, but we can't forget our little friends... I bought my little Rudy from some great breeders and they have posted these great dog treat recipes on their site: Pocket Puppy. If you like to spoil your pup, these will do it.

Moosie's Mom's Liver Brownies

3 cups Oatmeal
1 cup Flour
1 lb Liver
2 eggs

Process oatmeal in a food processor (or blender) until it is a "medium" consistency. Add the flour to the oatmeal and set aside. In food processor, place liver in small amounts and process until it is "liquid" consistency (it will resemble thick fudge). Add the two eggs to the liver and mix well. Then add the dry ingredients to the liver...stir very well. Spread on a non-stick cookie sheet (or jelly roll pan) and bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes. When cool, cut (or break) into small "bars".

Tips
When all mixed together this is a very sticky goo. To help spread it in the pan, I place a plastic bag on my hand and spray it with cooking spray to minimize sticking.
Shutting off the oven and leaving the pan sit in there until the oven cools helps dry out the bars.
We use a pizza wheel to cut the bars into squares.
Store treats in the refrigerator.
We double the recipe and freeze some of the treats until we need them.
