01-31-2009, 08:45 PM
We haven't had these in awhile and I got hungry for them, so I fried up some chicken livers and gizzards for dinner.

cleaned and ready

into the buttermilk to soak overnight

egg wash and flour seasoned with Kosher salt and lots of cracked black pepper.
I'll drain them from the buttermilk and then dredge them in the flour. Let them set a few minutes and then into the egg wash and back through the flour. Let them set in the frig for 1/2 hour and then back through the flour before frying.

Melting the lard for frying

one batch frying away

When I got done frying, I drained of some of the excess grease and added some flour

First you got to make a roux

Stirring and adding milk to make the gravy

Fried livers and gizzards with garlic mashed taters, milk gravy, and applesauce.

:thumbs up: love livers and gizzards. Resturant just north of here on the interstate sells them by the lb. Some times I just have to have a fix, but home made are better.:drooling:
