Stuffing Frittata Bites

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

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.

    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.

  2. Tiff

    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! :)

  5. Kate

    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 :)

  6. Debs @ DKC

    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.
