A few years ago I was watching Diners, Drive In’s and Dives and came across a restaurant that made waffles made out of cornbread dressing and left over turkey. I had to try it and did and its fantastic! I decided to post the ingredients and how its made. Forget the syrup. Slice some nice white meat on top of the waffle, and cover it with gravy, then a side of cranberries!
• 4 cups crumbled leftover stuffing
• 2 large eggs
• Chicken broth or turkey stock, as needed
• Leftover cranberry sauce, for serving
• Leftover gravy, for serving
• Waffle Baker
Preheat the waffle baker and grease it with cooking spray.
In a large bowl, stir together the leftover stuffing and eggs. Add 1/4 cup of chicken broth and mix until well combined. Continue adding chicken broth as needed until the mixture is well-moistened.
Scoop half of the stuffing mixture into the prepared waffle baker, spreading it evenly. (The stuffing will not spread or expand like regular waffle batter as it bakes, so it’s important to arrange it in an even, thin layer.) Close the lid and let the waffle bake until golden brown and the egg is cooked throughout.
Transfer the waffle to a serving plate then repeat the filling and baking process with the remaining stuffing. Serve the waffles with leftover cranberry sauce and warm leftover gravy.
This recipe for leftover stuffing waffles works best with basic stuffings that don’t include large pieces of vegetables or meats such as sausage. It also helps to warm the stuffing slightly prior to mixing it with the eggs and broth so that the mixture is easier to stir.
Don’t repeatedly open the waffle baker while the waffle is baking or it’ll lose it’s shape.
Stuffing waffles take longer to cook than regular waffles, as the egg must be completely cooked throughout. Don’t be afraid to let the waffle bake until it’s golden brown and enjoy.
