Doggie liver treats
Preheat oven to 350'f. Prepare a large baking pan with parchment lining. (I use a big jellyroll pan,. You can use a couple smaller pans if you wish. You don't need to buy a pan for this, just grab something from your collection.) You can grease the pan instead if you prefer.
Liquefy 1 lb of liver (chicken, beef, whatever kind you want) in food processor. I know, it looks horrible - note to the faint of heart, I think it smells even worse when it is baking.
Add an egg (Use just the inside , not the shell. I clarify this because a ditzy neighbor made a batch with an entire egg - shell and all. Her dog ate the treats with the shells -but her dog also ate cat poop from her litter box.) Pulse until blended.
Add potato flakes until mixture is about the texture of biscuits/dumplings. The original recipe called for flour, but Winston is allergic to grains. You can try flour instead of potato flakes - or a mixture of flour, oats, potato flakes or whatever you think your dog will like.
Drop bits of bloody batter on the pan as if you were making cookies. you can make whatever size you wish - from tiny to biscuit sized. I use a teaspoon for Winston's treats.
Bake about half an hour until well done, literally. When sliced, they should be brown to the center, not red at all. Larger treats may require a longer baking time. Take them out of the pan right away because they tend to stick. Store in a sealed container in the refrigerator. You can freeze part of the batch if you wish.
While baking, turn on a fan and open a window, weather permitting. Take care not to trip over the dog in front of the oven waiting for the treats to be done.
