  • 2 - 2 1/2 cups Leftover Stuffing or Dressing
  • 2 - 3 Eggs, slightly beaten
  • 1/2 - 3/4 cup Flour
  • Oil for Frying


  1. If your leftover stuffing or dressing has big chunks, gently chop into smaller pieces. Course crumb to pea sized should work well.

  2. Then add in a couple slightly beaten eggs and flour. Start off with the smaller range of measurements. Then add more eggs or flour as needed. The stuffing should hold together in a small ball when the consistency is correct.

  3. Next, take a small handful of the stuffing mixture (about 1/4 to 1/3 cup) form into a ball and then flatten into a patty.

  4. In a skillet, pour 2-3 Tbsp of oil and heat over medium. Once the oil is hot enough, place a couple patties into the skillet. Once browned, gently flip and allow the other side to brown.

  5. Remove the cooked and browned patties to a paper towel to drain. Serve warm.

Recipe Notes

  • As the patties come out of the skillet, I place them on a baking sheet in a 300F oven to keep warm. 
  • Sometimes I will place the formed (un-cooked) patties in the freezer for 15-30 minutes in order to firm up and hold together during the fry. 
  • The key is to start on the low side of all the listed measurements. Add ingredients, until a ball of stuffing can be formed and hold its shape.
