The delicious Thanksgiving Leftover Waffles Recipe is made from the those tasty Thanksgiving leftovers. Great way to enjoy them again.
The delightful chaos of Thanksgiving has passed, leaving us with a fridge full of delicious remnants from the feast. But fear not, fellow foodies! Say hello to a scrumptious, palate-pleasing solution to your Thanksgiving leftovers conundrum – the Thanksgiving Leftovers Waffle.
Imagine this: creating a waffle that is a twist that includes the most iconic post-Thanksgiving trio – stuffing, mashed potatoes, and turkey. Yes, you read that right! These ingredients aren’t just for reheating; they’re destined for a mouthwatering waffle transformation.
How to make a Thanksgiving leftovers waffle
Add your leftover stuffing mixture and mashed potatoes to a bowl.
Add the small chunks of turkey. Mix it together.
Add an egg and flour and stir well.
Prep your waffle iron by heating it up. Once hot brush with butter or spray with nonstick cooking spray.
Place half the batter into the waffle iron and close the lid. Mine took about 5-6 minutes to cook to a golden brown. I’d recommend checking at around 4 minutes for a large waffle. If you have a smaller waffle maker you will need to use less batter and start checking after 2 minutes.
These waffles are so delicious on there own, but I think they’d be so good with a drizzle of warm gravy or cranberry sauce on top!!! It’s a great way to get the taste of Thanksgiving but in a fun updated way to enjoy those leftovers.
