Bonnie's Sunshine Liver Brownies

Contributed by RosaKiana Rossi

The recipe makes a lot of brownies so keep any leftovers (should there be
any) in
the freezer because they spoil real easy. 

     3 to 3 1/2 lbs of liver, beef or chicken
     1 C whole wheat flour
     4.25 oz jar fresh minced or crushed garlic
     2 C white flour
     1/2 C corn meal
     1 med shaker of grated parmesan cheese (I don't have the oz
     measure because I tossed out the container after I made the
     brownies for last weekend's agility trial.)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cover cookie sheet with foil, coat with cooking
spray, sprinkle lightly with corn meal and set aside. Process liver and
garlic in
food processor or blender until it looks like milk chocolate. Pour into
large mixing
bowl and blend in the rest of the ingredients. Spread evenly onto cookie sheet
(the mixture will be thick) and sprinkle lightly with corn meal. Bake until
no pink
is left. I usually bake them for about 30 min for one pan and then turn the
off but leave the brownies inside until they are cool. Cut in pieces and be
to be loved by your dog(s). I have yet to meet a dog that doesn't like SLBs
and I
think that this is about the greatest bait on earth... Enjoy!!!
