Pan-Fried Turkey Livers with Bacon and Onions
1/4 cup olive oil
1 red onion, halved lengthwise
and thinly sliced
Kosher salt and freshly ground
white pepper, to taste
12 strips bacon
1 cup flour
1 tsp. paprika
1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
4 turkey livers (about 10 oz.),
rinsed and thinly sliced horizontally
6 tbsp. unsalted butter
1. Heat olive oil in a 10" skillet over medium heat. Add the onion, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until soft and caramelized, about 20 minutes. Set aside.
2. Heat a 12" skillet over medium-high heat. Add bacon and cook, turning occasionally, until crisp, about 10 minutes. Using tongs, transfer bacon to paper towel–lined plate to let drain. Set aside.
3. In a medium bowl, combine 2 tsp. salt, 1/4 tsp. pepper, flour, paprika, and nutmeg. Dredge the liver slices in the flour mixture and shake off excess.
4. Heat 3 tbsp. of the butter in a 12" skillet over medium-high heat until butter begins to foam. Working in batches, place liver slices in skillet and cook, turning once, until golden brown, about 2 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel–lined plate. Wipe out skillet and repeat with remaining butter and liver. Serve liver strewn with the reserved onions and garnished with the reserved bacon.
