Ingredients

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

Instructions

  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.
