Stuffing frittata bites

At the Thanksgiving table, my dad was telling us about a survey he saw of what people were most looking forward to eating on Thanksgiving. I’ll give you one guess what item stole the show with 30 something percent…

Stuffing.

Had I taken the survey, I would’ve been one of the people contributing to stuffing’s win. That stuff (ha!) is seriously the best. Why we only eat it once a year seems like one of the dumber things in life. I’m thinking we should at least break it out for Christmas too. Mom, you good with that? You are the one who makes it after all.

After the table had been cleared we decided to let everyone fill up take home containers before washing the dishes and putting the food away. Ulysses put ours together (with the tupperware I brought from home. I come prepared when food is involved) and the conversation went something like this:

Ulysses: “What do you want?”

Me: “Everything”

Ulysses: “Ok”

I look over to see he’s put about 1/4 cup of stuffing in the container.

Me: “Um, more stuffing please”

He puts in another pathetic spoonful.

Me: “More”

He looks at me with one eye to see if that’s enough.

Me: “Just a littttle bit more”

He scrapes the stuffing bowl clean

Me: “Ok! That looks good”

Usually, I just recreate my Thanksgiving plate and eat as many meals of leftovers as I can that way. This year, I’m determined to repurpose things. It’s just more fun.

Stuffing, meet the incredible edible egg (and some heavy cream & spinach). You two shall become one tasty, delicious, frittata-like bite and I shall pop you into my mouth one by one.

My mom’s stuffing has sausage in it which gave these a salty bite and makes them perfect for pretty much breakfast, lunch or dinner.

I’ve already had them for all three. Winking smile

 

Stuffing Frittata Bites

Yield: 12 bites

  • 1 cup leftover stuffing
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 tablespoons heavy cream (or milk)
  • 1/2 cup loosely packed baby spinach, finely chopped
  • salt & pepper

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Grease mini muffin tin. In a small bowl whisk eggs & cream (or milk) together and season with salt & pepper. Spoon stuffing evenly into 12 tins (should be about 1 tablespoon per tin). Divide chopped spinach evenly on top of each tin filled with stuffing. Pour egg mixture on top of each tin until about 3/4 full. Bake for 15 minutes, broiling for the last 2-3 to brown the tops. Best served warm.

    Those look delicious! This year I am going to stuff some mushrooms with the stuffing and a Parmesan cheese mixture inside! Can’t wait to try it.

    Can I PLEASE come over for breakfast?

    Yum! I have a hard time deciding on my favorite dish. I like the green bean casserole and the stuffing. I usually don’t repurpose things though, except for throwing the turkey in a sandwich.

    Yeah, I pretty much hate all Thanksgiving food. That’s why yesterday and today i probably ate more than i did on Thanksgiving. The only thing I really look forward to are the desserts.

    Oh my that puts my boxed stuffing to shame!! :/ It looks sooo delicious!! Stuffing isn’t such a big deal in our house but I reckon thats just because we haven’t ever made any from scratch. This christmas might have to be the first time! :)

    Brent made fun of me on Thanksgiving because the only two foods on my plate were stuffing and cauliflower. I’m not sure he understands the wonder that is stuffing.

    While that looks very good, I am not nearly as much of an egg or stuffing fan as yourself, I think. ;)

    I normally don’t care for stuffing, but this looks really good! I think all of the best holiday foods should be eaten year-round, not just on one day of the year :)

    I love stuffing and make it regularly, no roast dinner would be complete without it. Never any leftovers in house though, but I will make extra in future for these little delights, thanks.

    These are baking away in the oven as I type this–perfect way to enjoy my dad’s amazing stuffing without just sneaking cold bites from the fridge :)

    Omg. Amazing idea. I’m going to make some stovetop so I can try this!
