What is this????

I just spatchcocked a belle and Evans fresh turkey and found this inside the cavity. Are these what I think they are? Anyone ever cooked them?


  • Sorry forgot the pic
  • What ever they are, I'm sure they are.

  • You are correct I just found a pic that matched it on google. They are gizzards. I'm going to toss them on with the turkey and try them out.

    Those are really good cooked on HDAF dusted with Tsunami spin. I like turkey liver & gizzards a lot better than chicken.

  • Better if you throw them in with the gravy and pull them out after an hour

  • Fry them in a pan with some rosemary , butter and a little sea salt.

    Its a gizzard. Best stewed or braised unless you like to chew.

    You must not have a cat, she'd be crawlin' up your leg by now.   :D

  • I actually cooked them with the turkey. They were chewy but tasty. Kinda like a chewy jerky ball. I ate one and the dog lucked into the other. image

    Look to the right and the neck and gizzard. I always cook both for cooks food. image
