To stuff a heart, remove the hard parts. Close the slit with metal skewers, then lace and tie with string forming a pocket.

For ease of stuffing, place tied heart in small bowl. Fill lightly with stuffing and cover opening with foil; tie in place.

    AS IF there aren’t other meats to eat. GAH! You had me afraid that you were getting ready to make that recipe!

    Wow, I must have watched too many horror films… this just looks like a Halloween recipe to me!

    It’s just meat. What is the difference between this and a steak, really? Heart is wonderful meat, incredibly tender if cooked right. This is going in my “Recipes to try” folder for sure!

    Please don’t even have a glimmer of a thought about having an organ meat contest.

    It’d be interesting to make a sort of turducken heart, with a quail’s heart inside a chicken heart inside a lamb heart inside a beef heart. I’d at least take a bite out of something like that.

    Actually, I like heart.. it’s a great beefy flavor and works like a good stew beef. I might have to try it
