Share with fellow dog lovers!

In a hurry but still want to make your dog a yummy treat? This recipe–created with a box of cornbread but with the addition of beef liver–is super simple, inexpensive, and very popular with our dogs!

I like this recipe because it literally takes minutes to prepare.


First (and this is the ONLY tough part of this recipe), pop the liver into the blender and mix until it’s the consistency of a malt.

To get really efficient with your time, buy several pounds of liver, blend it all at once, and freeze the blended liver in one-pound packages. You can use it in future Liver Cornbread preparations or use the liver to make Liver Training Treats.


Next, pour the blended liver (it shouldn’t have any big chunks) into a mixing bowl.

Add the contents of the box of cornbread mix and the egg, then start stirring.

The result is a fairly smooth batter that you’ll be able to pour onto your greased cookie sheet.


Bake the cornbread mix for 30 minutes then take it out and cut into one-inch squares.

Let the cornbread cool completely before you bag and refrigerate. You’re done!

The Liver Cornbread is a real favorite with our dogs; it’s a lighter consistency than the Liver Training Treats so it doesn’t work out as well for putting in your pocket or treat bag to use during training; it’s best as an after-walk treat.
