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.
Thanksgiving Leftovers: Stuffing Waffles
- 2 cups (250 grams) leftover, cold stuffing
- 1 egg, beaten
- Preheat your waffle iron.
- Crumble the stuffing into a small bowl, breaking up any large pieces. Add the egg, and stir until well combined, and egg has mostly soaked into the stuffing.
- Coat the waffle iron with cooking spray. Spoon ¼ of the stuffing batter into the center of the iron. Close, and cook until deep golden (usually ready when steam stops shooting out of the sides).
- Repeat with remaining batter. Serve hot.
