Savory Chicken Gizzard Pate

If you would have told me 3 years ago I would enjoy cooking or eating a chicken gizzards, I would have bet you good money to call your bluff.  You would have been victorious, however, because I am now a big fan.  Beyond the nose (or in this case, beak) to tail movement, I’ve found that offal meats are actually quite delicious.  This is also a fairly easy recipe that your whole family will enjoy (trust me).  We made this with our homemade applesauce, and that is a great treat as well.

This recipe uses both chicken hearts and gizzards, and is served as a pate you can scoop up with your favorite vegetables.  We have also stuffed mushroom caps with this pate, and it’s scrumptious.  I’ll add the directions and photos for the stuffed mushroom caps as a bonus how-to next time we get a chance to make this.
