There’s very little to no ultrarunning or running content other than keeping your canine running partner happy, or maybe fueled during a run.
We got this dog treat recipe from a family member years ago. We always have a working supply of liver brownie treats on hand for canine pack- liver treats. The canines each get three each to close their evenings out every day after the last time they go out for the night. This recipe will produce from 135 to 150 1x1x1 inch liver treats.
I’m here to tell you that the only things that will make your canines as happy on a daily basis are daily runs or hikes, or a fresh supply of horse poop that they can roll in whenever they feel so inclined.
This recipe will provide enough 10-inch square liver brownies to last 3-5 dogs up to 10 days with 3 treats each per day. If you have 2 canines or less you may want to consider going with a half-sized production.
Two 20 ounce containers of Perdue Chicken Livers. (NFI. The chicken liver just seems to work best-We’ve used beef liver on occasion).
2 Cups of Wheat Flour; 1 cup of Non-Bleached flour. (3 cups of flour is the operative amount)
Equipment: Faberware food processor (NFI- or similar product- blenders are not strong enough)
One 15 inch X 11 inch cookie sheet; Large Mixing Bowl; One large Spoon; 1 Spatula; 1 large cutting board & Kitchen knife; Oven.
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
Puree 20 pounces of chicken livers 1 container at a time for 3 minutes. Pour in the larger mixing bowl. Repeat.
Once all 40 ounces of liver is pureed and in your large mixing bowl, stir in the 2 cups of wheat flour and 1 cup of non-bleached flour. Stir thoroughly until all the flour is evenly mixed with the pureed liver.
Pour the mixed liver into your Pre-greased 15 x 11 cookie sheet. I pre-grease with Pam spray (NFI) but traditional shortening will suffice. Spread the mix evenly. I generally pour the liver mix right from the bowl into the pan, spatula out what ever remains, and then shake the pan back and forth until the liver mix is evenly spread out. Your standard 15 x 11 x 1 inch deep pan should be evenly covered all the way across about as deep as the pan is high.
Bake at 350 degrees for an hour and 15 minutes to an hour and 35 minutes. I always go for 90 minutes. 1 Hour and 30 minutes.
A Liver Treats 401 Point. While baking a robust liver aroma will fill your home & your dogs will be excited. The aroma might be less exciting for you. I always bake fresh cookies to counter-balance the baking liver treat fragrance, or sometimes make popcorn.
Another Liver Treats 401 Point. The kids love when I sprinkle parmesan cheese on the finished product before throwing it in the oven. But the treats don’t last as long in the refrigerator with cheese sprinkled on them, nor mixed in.
After the liver treats bake for 90 minutes, remove from the oven and let cool. Once cooled I like to systematically cut them up into 1-inch by 1-inch by 1-inch sized brownies.
