This is not my idea. In fact, I saw it on Facebook. The idea was presented by TipHero, but the video from their site refers to a site called Chow.com. This idea gets an “A” in creative use of Thanksgiving leftovers, but only a “B minus” for the actual product. Don’t misunderstand. I enjoyed the stuffing waffles that I had yesterday. The problem was that the first ones fell apart when I tried to take them out of the waffle iron. I gave the next round of waffles an additional two minutes, but they still had a very high moisture content. I managed to get them out of the iron intact, but they were still very fragile. I held the waffles in a 200 degree oven on a wire rack until I had used up the last of the stuffing. This crisped them up a bit, but initially, I was disappointed.
As was suggested in the video, we had the stuffing waffles as part of a breakfast with eggs and bacon, but we also added some hominy heated up in some of the bacon grease. Please, don’t judge me. Grits are good with bacon broken up in them. The long name for grits is Hominy Grits, right?
My opinion is that this is the most creative use of Thanksgiving Leftovers that I saw this year. I only wish I was the one who had though of it. I recommend that you head over to TipHero.com, and give the stuffing waffles a try. You’ll be glad you did.
As always, thanks for visiting Patty Cake’s Pantry.
