- 400g Ox liver
- 700g Chicken gizzards
- 200g bacon
- 2 tsp salt
- 1 tbsp oil for frying
There is nothing more rewarding as when things turn-out better than you thought they would when playing around with flavors in the kitchen. An idea struck me one day – what if I mix chicken gizzards and ox liver together and wrap them in bacon. I finally tried and was absolutely delicious. It will work great as finger foods, a snack, starter or maybe even part of a meal. It’s pretty easy to do so let’s get to it.
- Put your gizzards in a pot, add one tsp salt and water (which just covers your gizzards) and boil for 15 minutes. Set-aside and allow gizzards to cool. Heat oil in the same pot add ox liver and a tsp of salt and fry briefly about 10 minutes on medium heat. Set-aside and allow to cool. Pre-heat oven to 180 degrees Celsius. Once both gizzards and ox liver have cooled, wrap them with bacon and secure with a tooth-pick. Put wrapped bacon and liver in oven-proof dish and bake for 30 minutes.
- After 30 minutes remove your gizzards and liver from the oven.
- Your baked Chicken gizzards and ox liver wrapped in bacon are ready to be served!
