Gizzards and Noodles

READY IN: 3hrs 15mins
Recipe by Cloudtears

We grew up on "cheap" food but this one has become a family standard for comfort food. The recipe screams for additions and variations but we just seem to prefer it plain. This is extremely inexpensive to fix and if you like gizzards this one is easy as sin to fix. My mother would make a big batch up and then use it as a "bribe" to get my sister and I over for lunch. Don't have to ask twice, Mom.

When my sons were little guys and with only one income I prepared "cheap food". My boys called this dish Lizard Stew. Even today as grown men they talk about Mamas delicious Lizard Stew. If available, I added chopped celery and a boullion cube to make it more flavorful. Sue
