Recipes

Quick-as-a-flash Tuna Bread

  • 1 tin of tuna in oil (if you have brine, drain it and add some oil or water to the mix)
  • 80g plain flour
  • 1 egg
  • Sprinkle of garlic powder

Put the tuna, garlic powder and egg in a bowl, mix with a spoon. Then add the flour gradually until it all binds together (add less or more flour as you need).  Pour onto a microwaveable plate and put in the microwave for 4 minutes, turn onto a wire rack to cool and cut into small training sized cubes.

Liver Bread

  • 350g liver (any amount will do, this just happens to be the size of an average packet of liver)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 cloves of garlic, or a tsp of garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 150g of self raising flour

Put the liver, egg, garlic, oil and baking powder in a food processor, whizz until it is a smooth paste. Add the flour gradually until the mixture resembles a sponge cake mix, add more or less flour if  needed (depends on the amount of liver), so long as it is a thick paste.
Pour out onto a baking tray lined with foil, and spread out over the tray.  Bake at 180C in the oven for 15-20 mins, test with a  skewer and if it comes out clean, its ready.
Slice into small cubes and then freeze in training sized portions until needed.  Self raising flour makes it more bread like, and it makes it go further too.
