Cheesy Baked Eggs with Leftover Stuffing – a quick and super easy way to use up some of those Thanksgiving leftovers!

Cheesy-baked-eggs-with-thanksgiving-leftovers

One of the best aspects of Thanksgiving is the leftovers. Turkey sandwiches, turkey soup, turkey casserole – even turkey surprise! But in the past few years I have also had fun creating recipes with leftover stuffing. My husband Robert and both I love eggs benedict, so my Leftover Thanksgiving Stuffing Eggs Benedict dish has been a favorite for the last few years. This year, I decided to do something even easier – and the result is Cheesy Baked Eggs in Leftover Stuffing. Simply spread leftover stuffing in the bottom of a baking dish, make hollowed out spaces that you fill with egg, then top with Cheddar cheese and bake. So easy, so delish!

  • Cook Time: 14 mins
  • Total Time: 19 mins
  • Yield: 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 3 cups leftover stuffing, at room temperature
  • Vegetable or chicken broth, if needed
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese, or more to taste
  • kosher salt, to taste
  • fresh ground pepper, to taste

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Grease a 10-inch round baking dish (can also use a 9-inch square dish or squish it into a 7- by 11-inch dish).
  2. If your stuffing is a bit dry, moisten with some vegetable or chicken broth. Spoon stuffing into prepared pan and spread into an even layer. Make four hollowed-out spaces and put one egg in each space. Bake for 12 minutes.
  3. Remove from oven and sprinkle with cheese; season with salt and pepper. Bake for an additional 2 minutes or until eggs are almost to desired doneness. Remove from oven and let sit for around 3 to 5 minutes before serving – note that eggs will continue cooking after removing from the oven.
