Default Chicken livers and gizzards.

Having me some for lunch today and everyone at work is turning their nose up at it. Does nobody eat this stuff any more? I've always thought they were good. I prefer livers over gizzards but I'll eat both.

Gizzards and livers are great, as long as they are fresh out of the fryer

Especially when they brine and boil the gizzards before frying them.
Melt in your mouth good!

Gizzards and liver, both chicken & beef liver. Love 'em. HEB sells packages of "Chicken liver and gizzards" When the kids were young I used to cook 'em up and call 'em lizzards tryin to get 'em to eat 'em.
Didn't work!

I can tear up some fried gizzards and gravy. Chicken Express does the job, but I think it was George's in Waco that used to serve up some fried turkey gizzards that were pretty dang good.

Gizzards are better. They stay on the hook better than livers when catfishing.

I guess most anything is edible when its deep fried and you put enough hot sauce on it.

Gizzards do stay on the hook. . . because the catfish don't eat them. :-). Well, certainly not as well as liver. Beef liver that toughens up in the sun a bit is great channel catfish bait, but seriously haven't done much good with gizzards.

Really enjoy eating some gizzards and gravy for long drive road food.

Really enjoy using livers to catch some nice catfish.

It's my issue, but the gizzard is a muscle and the liver is a body filter.

I really do miss Team Gizzard at Bownanza. If you weren't around back then, well, you missed out on some great gizzard eating, washed down with a shot or three of Fighting Cock.

Massey's in Ft. Worth, the best ever since 1950. Don't know if they are still open, but go try 'em if they are. Chicken fried steak was good also.

Don't care for the gizzards. Fry me up some livers, add some fried okra. Cook up some collard greens and fry some cornbread. Make a big pitcher of iced tea. Generously sprinkle livers and okra with Texas Pete Hot Sauce. Add some hot pepper vinegar to the collards. If you're really lucky there'll be homemade Banana Pudding to follow up.
