DIRECTIONS

  • In a pot, combine gizzards with garlic, onion, carrot, bay leaf and herbs. Add enough water to cover and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook 40-60 minutes, until gizzards are fork tender. Drain gizzards and cool to room termperature. Reserve broth for another use.
  • Cut gizzards into 1/2" chunks, working around any gristle or tendons.
  • Combine flour with salt, cayenne and seasoning. Beat egg in a small bowl.
  • In a pot or deep skillet, heat 1 1/2 to 2 quarts of vegetable oil to 350°F Dip each piece of gizzard in egg, then in flour. Be sure to coat them well or the coating will not be crisp.
  • Place coated gizzard pieces into oil and cook 2-3 minutes until golden brown and crisp. Drain on a rack. Serve immediately.
