Stuffing Frittata Bites

These Stuffing Frittata Bites are a quick and easy recipe to use up leftover stuffing from Thanksgiving. They’re great for breakfast or even a higher protein snack.

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 Frittata Bites

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.

Leftover Thanksgiving Stuffing Frittata Bites

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. Hence, the stuffing frittata bite.

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.

Thanksgiving Stuffing Frittata Bites

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.

While I’ve created stuffing muffins before for a nice little individually portioned serving of stuffing and these frittata bites slightly resemble those, they’re more in the leftover camp than the main meal menu.

They’d be awesome recreated using this chestnut stuffing too if you decide to make that recipe for your holiday celebration.

If I’m not enjoying this Thanksgiving breakfast frittata in the days after, you can bet these stuffing frittata bites will be on my plate instead!
