Duck giblets are well worth saving. The meat from hearts, gizzards, and even those skinny necks, can be added to dressing. The dressing can be used as a side dish or a stand alone meal.

Here's the giblets from a mixed bag of ducks that was added to cornbread dressing; a hearty meal in itself. This is an easy one; takes about 30 minutes to prepare.


2/3 cup - duck hearts and gizzards, chopped
14 oz - chicken or duck broth
1/4 cup - butter
1/4 cup - dried wild mushrooms, chopped
1- 6oz box of cornbread dressing

Hearts and gizzards from a mix bag of ducks:

Make sure the tough white skin is removed from the gizzards. Dried wild Slippery Jack (suillus luteus) mushrooms were included:


  • Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat
  • Cut hearts and gizzards into small pieces.
  • Sauté giblets for 5 minutes.
  • Add broth and dried mushrooms, reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes.
  • Stir in stuffing mix, cover and let stand for 5 minutes before serving.
Makes about 4 servings:
