I was born and raised in St. Louis Missouri and I'm no where near southern but I grew up on fried gizzards. My dad enjoyed livers more, I don't care for livers of any kind. But I now fry gizzards for MYSELF because my husband and neither one of my kids will touch them. MORE for me!! Fried and smothered in hot sauce is the only way to eat gizzards! ;)

My husband just loves gizzards, I made these last night for his Birthday and he loved your recipe and ate half of them himself! He kept going on about how tasty they were, and how tender they were, with the perfect bit of chew and spiced up just right and the kids loved it too! Thanks so much for sharing your delicious recipe!
