(Submitted by Anita Thomson)
You will need:
1 lb. liver (beef or chicken)
1 1/2 cups flour (whole wheat)
1 cup cornmeal
1 tbsp brewers yeast (opt)
dash of garlic powder
Put liver in the blender and blend it a bit, then add everything else (including egg shells if you want), blend well. Pour onto a flat cookie sheet (greased or sprayed) Bake at 325 degrees for 25 minutes. Score the biscuits while warm.
You can also just use beef heart cooked in water with garlic until done, then slice it up and dry it out a bit in a 200 degree oven. The dogs love this as well and it doesn’t seem to go through them as fast.
