What to do with turkey liver?

I still have the uncooked turkey liver from Thanksgiving. What should I do with it?
I usually do a quick snack sauté of the giblets for my own decadent pleasure...
In a small nonstick skillet I'll usually melt some butter almost to the smoke point, then toss in the liver seasoned with salt, pepper, garlic, and a good amount of quality paprika...
The paprika acts as a thickener and creates a nice vibrant, colorful sauce with the butter and the cooking juices exuded after letting the whole thing rest a few minutes after cooking...
Like a Tapa--- in 4 seconds it's gone...
If you have a freezer, you can begin a stash of poultry livers for a full meal later when you've accumulated enough. A second thought, wilt half a diced red onion or several shallots in butter. Add the liver and cook until still pink in the center, turning once. Add some minced parsley and bit of Marsala. Puree in blender and enjoy on crackers.
