Leftover stuffing waffles are one of the easiest meals to prepare the day after Thanksgiving. Whether it is breakfast, lunch, or brunch they will be a hit at your table!
You only need 3 minutes and 4 ingredients to make them!
And, if you are looking for more Thanksgiving leftover recipes, I have some tasty options for you at the end of this post.
- Leftover stuffing
Tools you will need:
- Large bowl & spoon or spatula – to mix everything together
- Bowl or large mug – for beating the eggs
- Waffle iron/waffle maker
Quick recipe overview
Mix together stuffing and some stock. You don’t need to use all of the stock if you find the mixture wet enough. Then, in a separate bowl beat the eggs and add them to the mixture.
Stir until everything is well combined. Now you are ready to make some waffles!
What does this recipe contain?
What to serve with savory waffles?
- Leftover turkey, cranberry sauce and gravy
- Scrambled eggs or sunny-side up eggs
- Aioli and chives (We love this flavor combo!)
- Bacon and maple syrup
- If your stuffing is very chunky, you can run it through a food processor but don’t over-do it. Simply pulse once or twice.
- I make homemade stove top stuffing, cut bread into ½-inch cubes and I have no problem making waffles.
- Another trick you can do is to use the stock to wet the leftover stuffing and kind of mash it with your hands into smaller pieces.
- Don’t over-fill your waffle iron!
- My waffle maker does not require much oil, I simply brush some on both irons before I cook the first savory waffles in it and that seems to be plenty for all.
- This recipe will easily serve 5 people.

Leftover Stuffing Waffles
- 4 cups homemade leftover stuffing
- 2-4 tablespoons stock , of your choice, see note 1
- 3 eggs (large), beaten, see note 2
- salt , a pinch, see note 3
- oil for greasing the waffle maker
- Preheat your waffle maker.
- Meanwhile: In a mixing bowl, mix together stuffing and stock. Use your hands to break large pieces of bread if you have any.
- Add eggs and salt and stir until well combined.
- Brush both sides of waffle iron with some oil (or use oil in a spray bottle) and add about 2-3 tablespoons of the mixture. Spread it around a bit and close.
- Cook until the waffle turns golden brown, and the mixture is cooked through (for this reason it is better not to over-fill your waffle iron).
- Serve with anything you like!
- Any stock or broth will work: chicken/vegetable/turkey. Instead of stock, you can use milk.
- Use either 3 large or 4 small eggs. Now, 3 large eggs should be plenty, but if you feel your stuffing is quite dry, add one more.
- When using stock, you might not need to add salt at all but I like to add a little. With milk, I would definitely add a good pinch.
- This recipe will yield 4 generous or 5 smaller portions.
- Cooking time will vary, depending on how much mixture you use per waffle as well as how powerful waffle iron you have.
