We love Thanksgiving! This year we celebrated with 34 friends and family for dinner. As normal we had a few left overs, but we were shy on leftover turkey. Looking at the delicious stuffing and hungry for breakfast I created two savory breakfast options.
The first was a savory apple crisp created with our warmed homemade applesauces which I top with a stuffing crumbled. The crumble is simply left over stuffing which I toasted and broke into small crumble in a frying pan. I like this better than apple pie!
The second, and my husband's new favorite, is a stuffing egg-in-a-hole. My stuffing is very moist and easy to compress into a hamburger ring. The denser you can compress the better as it softens during cooking. I used a smaller biscuit round to punch a hole in the middle. I placed the ring and the hole in the frying pan with some butter. I use the hole to judge the cooking as you don't want to touch the more fragile ring until necessary. I flipped the stuffing ring when one side was browned and then added the egg into the center. When the egg whites have started to cook through I flip back to the first side to cook the other side of the egg. We drizzled with just a touch of maple syrup, but it was great without this as well. When you cut in and the yolk mixes with the stuffing it is really amazing.
We hope you had a great Thanksgiving and enjoy these leftover ideas. I may need to make stuffing more often!
