I used to LOVE gizzards when I was a kid! One summer, at my cousins' farm, I was there when they killed chickens, and my job was to rinse the grain out of the gizzards. I mentioned how much I loved them, so their mom cooked them all up for me. After 20-some gizzards, I'm not such a fan.

Never even tried them. I wouldn't know how to cook them, and now that I am up north I have not seen them on any menus anywhere.

My Grandma used to cook them up for my grandfather all the time. She used to buy the "Hearts and Gizzards" pack at the grocery store. I never tried them because they looked kinda gross, now I wish I had.

Love them. We saute hearts and gizzards (and necks too) with a little olive oil and lots of garlic. We call them "chicken steak". No idea why. They make a great movie night snack.
Off to the store to get some!

Love gizzards. My mom used to make them w/red pepper paste, green onions, jalapenos and serve it w/rice. It was sooooooo good. She always put her korean touch on everything she cooked....made it so much nicer! We always called them 'hot gizzards' and my friends would beg me to ask my mom to make it for them!

ETA: Love 'em fried too! My dad made the best!
