Thanksgiving Leftovers Breakfast Casserole with Stuffing

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 with leftover stuffing ideas.

What to do with Leftover Stuffing?

My husband Robert and I both 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!

How Do You Revive Leftover Stuffing?

Leftover stuffing can often be dry – the bread in it will absorb any moisture. So, as noted in this recipe, just stir in a bit of vegetable or chicken broth. That should do it!

What you need for Breakfast with Thanksgiving Leftovers

In addition to your leftover stuffing, all you need to make this quick and easy breakfast is vegetable or chicken broth (if your stuffing is on the dry side), eggs, shredded Cheddar cheese and salt and pepper. That’s it!

This leftover stuffing recipe is incredibly easy to prepare with only 4 ingredients! Here are the steps:

  1. Preheat oven and prep baking dish.

  2. Add stuffing.
    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 in the stuffing (evenly spaced) and put one egg in each space.
  4. Bake.
    Place on middle rack in oven and bake for 12 minutes.
  5. Add cheese and finish.
    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.
  6. Rest and serve.
    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.
