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
- Preheat the waffle iron and spray with cooking spray.
- Place leftover dressing in a batter bowl or bowl large enough to hold 8 cups.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
