Thanksgiving leftovers – turkey and dressing waffles?!

How was your holiday? We had a great one – my brothers, nieces and nephew and some family friends for dinner, and I made sure nobody went away hungry. Even though I sent people back home with food for later, there are still plenty of leftovers in the fridge, and I like to put a new spin on them if I can – this year it’s dressing waffles.

No it’s not awful! We’re going to turn them into open-faced hot turkey sandwiches, and they are delicious! The waffle iron gets the dressing nice and crispy, and you’ve got all those pockets for soaking up that tasty gravy. Believe me, you’re going to love it.

While you’re heating your waffle iron, beat one egg in a large bowl…IMG_8402

…now add a couple cups of dressing and mix together well. This might seem like a lot, but since it doesn’t puff up like waffle batter, you need to have enough in there to be smashed down by the top of the grill to make the waffle…IMG_8403

…spray or grease your waffle iron well…IMG_8397 add the dressing to one section and close the lid…


…wait for it to be done – doesn’t that look amazing? And it smells heavenly! Now gently pull your waffle off the iron…


…top with sliced turkey and gravy – YUM!


My niece and I split one of these and it was plenty of food – it’s a lot of dressing, but it’s so good. You could also mix some mashed potatoes in with the dressing, but I found without the egg as a binder, you don’t get a good result.

Enjoy this waffle/sandwich twist, the perfect snack after a day of holiday shopping, right?
