My Thanksgiving dinner is one of the best meals that I have all year. I’ve never seen a live turkey and I’m sure that I would have a good time chasing one, but eating sautéed turkey giblets is even better.
I’m not a drooler, but when Roger fixes my Thanksgiving turkey giblets, I walk around the kitchen drooling. I’m sharing this simple recipe in hope that many dogs like me get the same delicious meal. A lot of humans really don’t know what to do with turkey giblets, so here’s what to do it you want to make a dog like me really happy:
- 1. Remove the giblets from the turkey and rinse them in cold water.
- 2. Cut off the tail of the turkey, rinse it and add it to the giblets.
- 3. If you have a skinny dog like me, remove some of the turkey fat, rinse it and add it to the giblets. If you want to spoil your dog a little more (hopefully you do), slice off a nice piece of white meat, rinse it and add it to the giblets.
- 4. Make sure that all the pieces are well drained.
- 5. Dice everything into ½ to 1 inch pieces. Don’t worry about the tough parts like the gizzard, just dice it all up. We dogs like to chew things.
- 6. Add a tablespoon of cooking oil to a large sauce pan and heat it to medium heat. Add the diced giblets.
- 7. Saute the giblet mix for about 3 minutes on medium, stirring occasionally. Cover and finish on low heat for 5 minutes.
- 8. Cool and refrigerate until the next mealtime.
- 9. Add about 50% dry dog food to the sautéed giblet mix and serve. Talk about a mouthwatering meal for dogs!!!
The sautéed giblet mix, served with dry dog food will make about 4 meals for a medium sized dog. A hungry, skinny dog like me will want to eat it all at one meal, however!
