Giblets (liver, heart, gizzard), neck, and tail from one turkey
3 pints turkey broth or lightly salted water
4 onions, chopped
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 medium tomatoes, diced
2 tablespoons uncooked rice
2 large eggs, beaten
3 tablespoons sour cream

Cooking Directions:

  1. Boil the giblets, neck, and tail in broth or lightly salted water over high heat for 15 minutes in large stew pot. Remove the giblets and dice. Discard the neck and tail.
  2. In a large skillet, sauté onions in oil over medium-high heat until tender. Add diced giblets and fry 3 minutes. Add tomatoes and cook 6 minutes. Add tomato mixture and rice to broth and boil until rice is tender. Lower heat to lowest setting.
