Stuffing Waffles, they are a thing, trust me. I am all for giving credit where credit is due, but for the life of me I cannot remember where I saw this idea for the first time. I know I did not think it up organically but I did create a recipe of my own for it. You may have never heard of Stuffing Waffles yourself, but they are a great way to use up leftover stuffing and make a great base for leftover turkey sandwiches. Think cranberry mayo too! After making these today, I was also thinking that Stuffing Waffles would be a really great appetizer for your holiday party! Maybe served with a Turkey Gravy Dipping Sauce? Whichever way you decide to eat these, they are very easy to make. I even used a box stuffing for this recipe. I was at Aldi and saw a Hawaiian Bread Sage and Onion Stuffing Mix, so that is what I decided to use. Here is the SIMPLE process for making these waffles and a few pro tips.
- 6 C of Leftover Stuffing, or 2 Boxes of Prepared Boxed Stuffing
- 2 Eggs, Whisked
This is literally all you need for this amazing recipe. The steps are simple but here are a few pro tips.
- Use a good waffle iron, I used a Cuisinart. You want to make sure you use a waffle iron that heats evenly and has a good non stick surface.
- Make sure you have a spatula to lift the waffle off the waffle iron and a cooling rack to make sure the waffles cool and not get soggy.
- A dry stuffing will not work for this recipe. You will need to use a stuffing that is a little on the moist side, if your leftover stuffing is dry, add some melted butter to it before putting it in the waffle iron.
The steps are easy:
- Heat your waffle iron to medium heat.
- Whisk your eggs and add them to your cooled stuffing, folding them in well, until all the stuffing is combined with the eggs.
- Place three heaping table spoons on the heated waffle iron and loosely spread the stuffing so that it covers the surface. Press the top of the waffle iron down.
- The waffle took longer to make then when I have made regular waffles, I wanted this to get crispy on the top and the edges so it cooked for about 10 minutes.
- When the waffle is done, use a fork to loosen it from the iron and a spatula to lift it off and onto the cooling rack.
- Eat on their own, use as a sandwich base or add some fried eggs on top!
These waffles were just divine. Everyone was delighted with them and gobbled (no pun intended) them up as fast as I could make them. I am sure they can be used in many different capacities, but like I said, they were just great on their own. I hope you enjoy them as much as we did!
