This a super recipe. Be sure to soak the liver and heart in salt water--overnight preferred. Also, instead of chopping the meat, run it thru a meat grinder. There will be some juice,but it will cook out. Yumm, great on a camp fire with scrambled eggs.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 4 cups beef bouillon
  • 1 cup cornmeal
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 12 lbs finely chopped deer liver
  • 12 lb finely chopped deer heart
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 14 lb butter
  • 12 cup flour
  • 3 tablespoons butter


  1. Bring broth to a rapid boil and slowly add cornmeal. Stir constantly until mixture returns to a full boil. Add salt, reduce heat. Cover and cook slowly for 5 to 7 minutes.
  2. Fry chopped deer liver, heart, and onions in butter, stirring frequently, until meat is an even color (5 to 7 minutes). Stir into cornmeal, pour mixture into a shallow baking pan and chill until it becomes firm.
  3. Slice scrapple into 1/4-inch slices, roll in flour, and fry in butter until both sides are golden brown. Serves 4.
