    No turkey in my oven this year- I don't have a kitchen! 3 more weeks. I usually put the neck into the roasting pan with the turkey and add the liver for the last hour or so. My DH likes to eat part of it and the rest goes to one of my dogs. I make a dressing of bread, onions, sausage and seasonings- simple but everyone likes it. Off to my SIL's home today for dinner with the family.

    love, love that giblet gravy. dad did not like the giblets so, we had to let them settle to the bottom and he got his gravy first. silly daddy. also, put the liver into the dressing. i don't like liver or dressing but always make it for the ones who do.

    lived in ontario for a year. got to have two thanksgivings, two independence days, and that great august civic holiday. that was a nice year.

    happy thanksgiving!!

    Both sides of our family do this. I don't eat liver (shuddering here) but my DMIL and her son eat it. One Thanksgiving DMIL put the liver in the microwave to cook it - explosion when it cooked nearly scared all of us to death. No liver eaten but had a good laugh.

    always, with onions and celery. My sister went one step further and would break up the carcass into a large pot of water with onions, celery, then would add carrots and noodles to the broth. when I make turkey gravy, I always use cornstarch instead of flour as the thickener. Makes a nice color and always smooth gravy.

    About an hour before the main course my Dad would always sit down and eat the turkey neck because he couldn't wait any longer. My mom would get exasperated but wonderful memories now that he is gone.
    I do that...and so did my mom, and then the giblets go in the stuffing.

    Some people are like Slinkies - not really good for anything, but you still can't help but chuckle when you see one tumble down the stairs.

    I put neck, giblets, in pan and simmered it to make broth for my noodles I made from scratch.
    The broth made a difference in the taste
