    This was so good. My family loved it. I had looked at several recipes before I decided on this one. My hubby insisted we use chicken livers as well as the giblets and sausage. I went ahead and added the rice to the pot about 45 minutes before serving as opposed to cooking the rice separately (probably need to add it a little sooner next time, as the rice did not all get totally done). Oh and I bought the wrong kind of sausage so was unable to crumble it, so I cut it very small. Other than that I followed the recipe exactly. It was time consuming, but not something I would not do again. It was well worth the work. Thanks for sharing.
