On Thanksgiving, I’m all about the side dishes. And, the next day, I love eating the cold leftovers from the refrigerator. Stuffing is my favorite! So, I invented… The Stuffing Pop!

Crack an egg into the stuffing and combine to bind the stuffing. I used an egg from my chicken Coco! Then cook stuffing for 1 minute in microwave and then place in refrigerator for 30 minutes. Colder stuffing will roll easier into balls.

I love gravy on my stuffing, so I decided to roll and coat my stuffing balls in cold gravy

I opted to use diced dried cranberries and chopped pecans to roll my pops in. Chopped water chestnuts or homemade bacon bits would be delicious too.

Roll the pop in your condiments (here it’s chopped nuts).

Put them on a plate and serve!

You get your Thanksgiving side dish flanked in one pop! If you don’t like cold leftovers, you can heat your pops in the microwave for 20 to 30 seconds.

Turkey Tenders

For another quick leftover treat, take leftover turkey and tear it into strips. Dip in egg and then Panko breadcrumbs, then pan fry, deep fry, or bake. Use leftover cranberry sauce as a dipping sauce.
