Stuffing Waffles
Yield: 2 large waffles (recipe can be multiplied easily)
A quick and easy way to reinvent leftover stuffing. For a filling meal anytime of day, top with leftover turkey and gravy, a fried egg, cranberry sauce or whatever sounds good to you!


  • 1 large egg
  • 2 cups crumbled leftover stuffing*
  • Options for serving: leftover turkey and gravy; fried or soft-boiled eggs (or style of preference); cranberry sauce


  1. Preheat a waffle iron and spray with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. In a medium or large bowl, whisk the egg and then stir in the leftover stuffing until evenly coated with the egg.
  3. Spread the stuffing mixture evenly over the prepared waffle iron. (My waffle iron makes two 5-inch-square waffles. If you have a larger iron, this amount of “batter” may cover half of the iron.) Close the lid and let the waffle cook until golden brown and lightly crisp.
  4. Transfer the waffles to a serving plate and enjoy with toppings of choice.


*Stuffing waffles work best with basic stuffing, meaning stuffing that doesn’t include large pieces of veggies or meat.

Hint: Sometimes I use all of the leftover stuffing for these waffles and then, once cool, wrap and refrigerate what we won’t be eating immediately. One waffle is quite filling and makes a complete meal when served with some protein-rich turkey or an egg on top. Leftover waffles are easy to reheat in a toaster oven (or regular oven) for breakfast, lunch or dinner.
