What would you do with 2 pounds of turkey livers?

I was at the (natural) grocery store this morning and they had a 1.75 pound pack of fresh turkey livers for under $3. Assuming turkey livers are as nutrient dense as chicken or duck livers that's a pretty good price for a LOT of nutrition. But all I could think was "whoa, I have no idea whatsoever what I would do with nearly 2 pounds of turkey liver." Any ideas?

And yes, I know some people wouldn't touch conventional liver with a 10 foot pole (it was not marked organic), and after comparing grass fed beef liver and conventionally raised beef liver, I might agree... I didn't actually buy it. But damn, if I didn't have much money to feed my family nutritious food I would be all over that big pack of liver. And then I would have no idea how to get my family to actually eat it.

It does freeze well - but it eats well too, so I wouldn't worry about having a lot around. I stuff chicken breast with pate, and have even made beef rouladen with pate as the stuffing.

No dog, but my cat would probably love it. In the end, I would probably freeze it and then chop it up to throw into chili to stretch the ground beef.

Even if it freezes well, 1.75 pounds would make a LOT of pate!

Grind some up in ground beef or ground turkey and make burgers.

Dredge in egg, then in seasoned nut flour, and fry in butter or other fat.

Give a couple to the dog as a treat ;)

If it's conventionally-raised, I wouldn't touch it!

If it was free-range, pastured, hormone & antibiotic-free, than I would make pat?? with it:

I would add them to a huge homemade bolognaise sauce which I would then freeze.

Ferment them into turkey-liver oil, build a business plan, and open up a new market for paleo style supplements!

I would do what I do with chicken livers: fry it all up with some green peppers and onions, then store it in the fridge and grab it for breakfasts, lunches, and snacks the next few days!

Another vote for pate. I made 2kg of it yesterday from chicken livers and lamb livers.
