What a Stuffing Waffles?
Think chicken and waffles but with turkey and stuffing! Stuffing waffles are simply waffles made from leftover Thanksgiving Day stuffing. If you made my easy stuffing recipe, then you know I like my stuffing more on the moist side vs dry. As a result, any leftovers are perfect for this fun recipe.
If your stuffing is on the dry side, try adding some chicken broth or an egg, as this will help soften the stuffing. Also, this works best with stuffing that is more traditional vs. stuffing with nuts, meat or other inclusions. If you do add an egg, be sure to let the waffle cook longer than normal to ensure the egg is cooked through.
How to Make Stuffing Waffles
Preheat your waffle iron. Mine is non-stick so I do NOT spray it with cooking spray.
Remove leftover stuffing from the refrigerator.
Spoon on about ½ cup of stuffing.
Close the lid and cook for 2-3 minutes. It may take longer depending on how moist your stuffing is. If it is very moist it will need more time. Don’t be afraid to let it cook until its is crispy and golden brown on both sides.
Once the stuffing is golden brown on both sides, remove it from the waffle iron.
Repeat for as many waffles as you want to make.
Top with warmed turkey, fried eggs, cranberry sauce, gravy, or anything you desire.
Tip and Tricks
It is easier to remove smaller waffles vs. large from the iron.
You may need a fork to lift the waffle from the waffle iron. Simply loosen all sides before lifting.
If your waffle breaks apart, it is either too big or not cooked long enough.
