{leftover} stuffing fritters


A few days after Thanksgiving, I opened the fridge and found: a few cups of leftover stuffing, about one cup of leftover mashed potatoes, another 1/2 cup or so of leftover artichoke dip and three eggs. First reaction: what are we going to have for breakfast?! Then, after another look I realized we had the makings of soon-to-be-named: stuffing fritters.

{Leftover} Stuffing Fritters
(makes 4+ generous servings)

3 cups of leftover stuffing
1 cup leftover mashed potatoes + 1/2 cup leftover artichoke dip*
3 eggs
1-2 Tablespoons olive oil to fry
optional: leftover cranberry sauce or gravy as a topping

Heat fry pan over medium heat. In a mixing bowl, combine stuffing, mashed potatoes and eggs, until blended. Drizzle frypan with olive oil. Drop spoonfuls of batter into olive oil and fry until warmed through and crispy on the outside. Serve warm with leftover cranberry sauce {sweet} or gravy {savory}.

* or you could make them with 1 1/2 cups mashed potatoes... or leftover sweet potatoes...
