Chopped (Turkey) Liver

Chopped Turkey Liver

1 turkey liver (it’s in the giblets bag)
1 small onion, sliced
1 hard boiled egg
1 tablespoon oil or turkey fat

In a small pan, heat the fat. Add the onion and the liver and saute until the onions are brown and the liver is no longer pink. Remove to a cutting board. Add the egg and chop until a coarse paste forms.* Serve on crackers.

* Note: This recipe can easily be doubled or tripled to make more chopped liver with other kinds of liver. We just thought it would be fun to use the liver they give you in the giblets bag.


  1. Hurrah! I’ve been looking for something fairly easy to do with turkey liver.

  2. Very tasty. Don’t rush! Let the onions get really sweet. Consider adding a splash of cognac; especially if you wish to refrigerate this.

  3. I just tried this after several days of hesitation since I'd never made chopped liver. I added fresh thyme and a bit of mace and allspice. It's terrific and will become part of my Thanksgiving routine. Thanks!
