Post Thanksgiving Buttermilk Waffles {made w/dressing!}

I have a massive amount of dressing leftover from Thanksgiving as the recipe I made serves about 12. I think between my dad and myself we maybe ate 1 serving on Thanksgiving day. I’m not one to throw out leftovers. I need to share them or eat them. I’ve given one of my friends and a homeless woman some leftovers and my dad and I have been slowly eating through the remaining leftovers.

Even when I do my usual Thanksgiving Leftover Bowls I tend to have an overabundance of dressing/stuffing. So I took to Pinterest to find inspiration in using up the remaining dressing. I found a ton of recipes for waffles made with stuffing. What I found interesting about these recipes was that they essentially used eggs and chicken broth or stock. It seemed weird to me. So I set out to make a more “traditional” waffle chock full of that leftover dressing. The result? A clear winner.


  • 6 c. leftover dressing/stuffing
  • 1 c. buttermilk
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ T. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • ¼ c. all-purpose flour


  1. Preheat the waffle iron and spray with cooking spray.
  2. Place leftover dressing in a batter bowl or bowl large enough to hold 8 cups.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk eggs. Add buttermilk and whisk together. Add baking soda, powder and flour and whisk until combined. Pour buttermilk mixture over dressing and gently stir to combine.
  4. Scoop dressing mixture into the prepared waffle baker, spreading it as evenly as possible. Close the lid and let the waffle cook until golden brown and cooked throughout.
  5. Transfer the waffle to a serving plate then repeat the filling and baking process with the remaining stuffing. Serve the waffles with your other leftover Thanksgiving fixings like turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy, cranberry sauce, etc.
