Creative Leftover Stuffing Recipes

Whether you use a stuffing recipe passed down from Aunt Betty or try out a new one, stuffing is arguably one of the best parts of the Thanksgiving meal. Maybe that’s because it’s one of the few dishes that we only typically eat only once a year.

And if you’re anything like me, you make a lot of stuffing so that you can enjoy it for a couple of extra days. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for just piling the leftover stuffing on a plate along with some turkey and gravy and reheating it in the microwave the next day. And, of course, it’s yummy on my much-anticipated turkey sandwich. But leftover stuffing is actually very versatile and you can get pretty creative with it.

Here are some fun and tasty ways to enjoy all that delicious extra stuffing:

  1. Waffle it
  2. Deep fry it 
  3. Cheesy egg cups 
  4. Gravy-filled stuffing muffins
  5. Stuffing hash
  6. Stuffing meatballs
  7. Stuffing bundt 
  8. Vegetable and stuffing dumpling soup
  9. Stuffing and turkey cakes
  10. Stuffing and sausage strata
  11. Cheesy stuffing balls
  12. Stuffing stuffed peppers
  13. Bacon-wrapped stuffing bites
  14. Stuffing pizza crust

Bonus: If you really want to reinvent your stuffing and all your leftovers (and fool your dining partners) try making TheThanksgiving Cake
