Thanksgiving Leftover Egg Bites
What kind of stuffing do you make? Mine is a turkey sausage based stuffing. It’s made with both sweet and hot Italian spiced turkey sausage. It’s easy and flavorful because the sausage adds such wonderful flavor to the mix. I hate to throw any of it out, but I’ve had to get creative with the leftover stuffing over the years.
No matter what kind of stuffing you make, this is a deliciously easy way to use it up. Just mold the stuffing into a cup by using a muffin pan and fill it (see below) to bake and serve for breakfast. These make the cutest egg bites that are bursting with flavor.
Here is the printable recipe to mold, fill, bake and serve.
- Leftover Stuffing
- Eggs, large
- Bacon, cooked and diced
- Shredded sharp cheese
- Nonstick cooking Spray
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
Coat each muffin tin cup with the nonstick cooking spray.
Add 2 – 3 tablespoons of leftover stuffing to each cup and press it to form a thin bowl of stuffing that covers the side and base of each individual cup in the muffin pan.
Add an egg to each cup.
Top each cup with diced, cooked bacon and shredded cheese. Bake the egg bites for approximately 15 minutes, until the egg is fully cooked and the cheese is melted.
Baked Bacon: Cover a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Lay the strips of bacon on the foil. Bake for approximately 18 – 20 minutes. Remove the bacon strips from the foil with tongues, and place them on a plate lined with a paper towel to absorb any extra grease.
Other Meats: You can swap the bacon for breakfast sausage, diced ham or even diced leftover turkey.
Add in leftover veggies: You can dice your favorite leftover veggies and add them to the top of the egg along with the bacon or you can eliminate the meat and go vegetarian.
Top it off: You can also add a little cranberry sauce on top for a sweet and savory mix of leftovers.
