Thanksgiving Leftovers: Stuffing Waffles

Thanksgiving Leftovers Stuffing Waffles | In Jennie's Kitchen

I’ve few regrets about my life with Michael, even the tougher times. They were all part of our journey, and the not so great times made the good times even stronger, better. When I think about these Stuffing Waffles, though, I only wish making them had occurred to me sooner.

Remember how I told you Michael loved his Thanksgiving stuffing? Well, if I had to rank his top 10 favorites, waffles would be on the list, too. Needless to say a waffle made from leftover Thanksgiving stuffing might’ve reduced him to tears, joyous tears of course.

I imagine he would’ve been happy to eat these hot from the waffle iron. I like them with a couple of perfectly cooked sunny side up eggs (read how to make them here). Runny egg yolks dribbling over crispy stuffing waffles is my perfect day after Thanksgiving breakfast (only second to pumpkin pie). It’s so easy to make them, so this is barely a recipe.

All you need are two ingredients to make Thanksgiving leftover stuffing waffles: stuffing and eggs.

Mix them together in a bowl until the stuffing has mostly absorbed the egg. Scoop some into a hot waffle iron, and the house smells a little like Thanksgiving all over again. You can a big batch of them if you have plentiful leftovers, freeze them, and heat in the toaster as desired.

While I like them for breakfast, they’re also a great side dish for dinner, or a twist on hot open turkey sandwiches, using the waffles as a base instead of bread. Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday. Peace, love & hugs.

    This seems like a fantastic idea to me! Heard Deb Pearlman interviewed on NPR the other day, and she also talked about stuffing waffles! I am looking forward to trying it tomorrow morning!

    I don’t have a waffle iron, so I either brown some stuffing in a skillet, then fry the eggs or I do the whole thing in the oven (Sam Sifton’s Thanksgiving Eggs). It’s one of my favorite post-Thanksgiving meals. I look forward to it every year.

    Genius! I made a batch of stuffing waffles for dinner tonight then covered them with chopped up turkey, gravy and a huge dollop of cranberry sauce. Yum, yum and more yum.
