Place chicken livers and liquid in blender and liquefy. Add egg—all of it, shell included—and pulse again. Add any of your optional vitamin E and/or flax seed. Pour liquid liver into a mixing bowl. Add flour, corn meal and garlic powder (or any of the substitutions/variations). Mix until well blended. Spray jelly roll pan with cooking oil or line with parchment paper. Pour mixture onto pan—you may have to spread it out—to about a 1/4” to 1/2” thickness. Bake 15 minutes in a hot oven. Cut into small squares while still warm. Cool completely. You can keep them in the freezer to prevent spoilage if you want.
