Hey everyone! It's Brutus!! Can you believe it? So little posting here lately, I was starting to forget how to do it. Mom has a snow day today (Snowmageddon #4 in Ohio), so we finally have a chance to catch you up on what we've been doing lately.
Mom is always on the lookout for tasty new treats for us to try. You see, we Frenchies have a reputation for eating ANYTHING (underwear, earplugs, christmas tree lights, in no particular order), but actually have a very discriminating palate. It takes something really special to get us genuinely excited, and we get bored quickly with even the most delectable treats. So today I, Chef Brutus, will be sharing the newest - and dare I say BEST EVER - recipe that a friend recently sent to us.
It's called TUNA FUDGE! I'm drooling just thinking about it. Better get on with things before the keyboard gets so full of slobber that my paws can't find the keys... You have to make it through the post (just like I had to make it through the production of the post!) to see the actual recipe. Hehehehe.
First, gather all the ingredients. Oh, and loose the ridiculous chef hat - it only gets in the way.
|Let's see... Eggs, Flour, Tuna, Garlic Salt - check!|
Next, combine everything into that terrible machine that mom calls a "blender". Press the button that says "puree".
|This would be a lot easier if I had thumbs...|
It will take a while to smooth everything out. While you are waiting, it's never too early for a taste test (just keep your tongue OUT of the blender itself!).
OK, now that it's all blended, have your human pour the goo into a greased baking dish (it's just not possible to do yourself, I tried).
Never hurts to taste it again, just to be on the safe side.
Now the waiting begins. I had mom turn on the oven, and once it heated up she put the pan inside to cook.
In the mean time, feel free to lick the bowl. And the blender. And the measuring cups. And the spatula...
As if the lovely aroma of the baking fudge wasn't enough to torture me, I had to defend my culinary creation from my pushy little sister.
|Step away from the fudge, Carmen!! Make your own!|
After what seems like an eternity (actually it's only 20 minutes, but in dog time that's like 4 hours), get your human to take the fudge out of the oven & let it cool. I begged mom for another taste test here, but she said it was still too hot.
The fudge has a kind of play-dough-like consistency. When it's cool, it can be cut into squares for easy handling (although I'd be perfectly happy to eat it right out of the pan).
At long last; my tuna fudge is ready! You can freeze some, otherwise it'll keep in the fridge for about a week - assuming you can keep your paws off it!!
|Finally! Oh, it smells SOOOOOO good!!|
I tell ya, I'll do anything for tuna fudge. It is the most amazing thing I've ever tasted! Are you drooling yet?? OK, no more teasing, here's the recipe:
This is Chef Brutus singing off for today. Gee, I wonder if Food TV is looking for a new host....
|Oh, no - the hat is back....|
Hope you can get your human to help you make some soon. Many thanks to our friend Katie (whose MinPin Mitzi reluctantly allowed her to share the recipe), I do believe that tuna fudge will result in a definite improvement in our agility and obedience performances! Gotta go - the tuna calls!!
|Nom, nom, nom, slurp, nom...|
