You know what I love more than Christmas? Eating food on
Christmas! And with that being said I’m going to share a few 

recipes for anyone who wants a little help choosing what to 

cook on Christmas. My first recipe is rice dressing or as my 

family likes to call it “dirty rice”. Not only is it

delicious, it has the right temperature of spice. I only make

this on holidays and when I taste it (because a good chef 

has to taste her food) I have to restrain myself from eating all 

of it.

Here’s what you’ll need to make it:
1 lb ground turkey
1 small pack of chicken gizzards
1 cup gizzard juice
1 bell pepper, diced
1/2 white onion, diced
1/2 red onion, diced
4 stalks celery, chopped
4 cloves garlic, chopped
1 bunch parsley, chopped
1 bunch of green onions
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

For the rice:

  • 3 cups Mahatma Thai Jasmine rice, dried
  • 4 1/2 cup beef broth, low sodium

Here’s what you have to do to make it:
  • Add beef broth to a large rice pan, bring to boil.
  • Stir in rice, cover, reduce heat to low and cook 15 minutes, remove from heat, allow rice to steam 10 minutes more.
  • Transfer mixture to a large bowl, add rice a little at a time until enough rice has been added and mixture remains moist. You may not need all the rice.
  • Add chopped parsley and mix well.
  • Check seasonings.
  • Rinse chicken gizzards and add to a stock pot, cover with water, cook over medium heat for about 1 1/2 hours, adding more water if needed.
  • You will need to reserve 1 cup of gizzard cooking liquid..
  • While gizzards cook, in a medium pan, add olive oil and heat over medium-high heat, add bell peppers, onions, and celery. Saute for about 5 minutes then add garlic and cook 1 minute more.
  • Add ground turkey, break up, add seasonings and saute until browned and cooked through. Turn turkey-vegetable mixture off the heat and set aside.
  • When gizzards are fork tender, remove from heat, drain, reserving gizzard liquid.
  • Add gizzards to a food processor and chop lightly.
  • Add chopped gizzards to turkey-vegetable mixture and heat over medium heat, mix well. Add gizzard cooking liquid.
