How to Cook Turkey Giblets for Dogs

by Amanda Maddox

Before stuffing the turkey, cook the giblets for your dog.

A turkey’s vital organs, called giblets, are the heart, liver, gizzard, neck and kidney. They get stuffed inside when it is processed. You must remove them before cooking the turkey; but what should you do with them? You can make gravy or throw them out. But wait! You can cook them for your four-legged friend to have a nice treat.

Step 1

Remove the giblets from the turkey and package. Clean them under cold running water.

Step 2

Place the giblets in a medium pot and cover them with about 3 inches of water.

Step 3

Bring the water to a boil. Turn the heat down and simmer the giblets in the water for about 30 to 40 minutes.

Step 4

Remove the pot from the heat and allow the giblets to cool completely.
