Waffle Iron Creations

Who knew that the waffle iron sitting in your kitchen cabinet could have so many good uses?!  Everyone loves breakfast waffles, but your waffle iron can be used for so many other recipes.  

After Thanksgiving, we were perusing social media and ran across a great idea from +Food Network  Take left over stuffing and mix in a beaten egg.  Put this mixture in a waffle iron and make Stuffing Waffles.  Then top it with a couple slices of turkey, mashed potatoes, and gravy.  We took it a step further and added cranberry sauce to the top. 

Leftover Stuffing Waffles 

Vegetable oil, for the waffle iron
4 1/2 cups crumbled leftover stuffing
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
2 large eggs, beaten
2 cups leftover mashed potatoes, warm
1/2 cup leftover gravy, warm
1/4 cup leftover cranberry sauce
Add Checked Items To Grocery List


Preheat a waffle iron to medium high. Generously brush the top and bottom of the iron with oil.

Combine the stuffing, parsley and eggs in a medium bowl. Evenly and firmly pack the waffle iron with some of the stuffing mixture. Close the iron and cook until the waffle is golden and can be lifted out easily, 4 to 6 minutes. Repeat with the remaining stuffing mixture.

Transfer each waffle to a plate, top with a scoop of mashed potatoes and then cover with gravy; finish with a dollop of cranberry sauce.

Since Thanksgiving we have tried various foods in our waffle iron.  One of our family favorites is cinammon rolls.  They make the best waffles-so much sweet goodness whether you top it with icing or syrup!  We also tried hash browns - simply mix hash browns with 2 beaten eggs and any additional ingredients you want.  We added chopped bacon, red peppers, onions, and cheese.  Put the mixture in your waffle iron and you will have flavorful crisp hash browns to serve your family or friends!  

Be creative!  We would love to see your waffle iron creations!
