Just A Country Bumpkin: Chicken Gizzards/Noodles over Mashed Potatoes

This is a favorite meal in my house, and I have been making this for years for my children. They love it!

I was raised in the country and my mom used to serve this too. Back then, this was considered a cheap meal. You know, the one income family......

I don't have a recipe for this, but I will try and walk you through it the best I can.

I posted this meal on my Facebook Fan Page and received quite a few YUCKS!.....but if you make them the way I do, I know you will love them.

I realize December is suppose to be filled with Holiday goodies, but I would really like to take time out to share this with you.

Okay....her we go.....

First you have to wash and clean the gizzards. Place them in a large dutch oven.

Cover them with a good amount of water. Probably about two to three inches above the gizzards.

Bring them to a boil (and watch the pot closely, because if they boil over you will have a huge mess. Believe me, I know....).

Turn them down to simmer, cover and simmer for 4 hours.

Add chicken soup base to the water that is already there (to your taste), (I put in 3 to 4 TBS). Uncover after 4 hours and bring them back to a boil. Add your noodles (the amount you will like) and cook to package directions. I like to use the old fashioned noodles in this dish. There will be quite a bit of liquid, but we just tip the ladle to drain when we top our mashed potatoes.

I hope you enjoy this as much as we do. A salad on the side is excellent with this, or one of my favorite veggies to serve with this, sliced beets.
