Thanksgiving dinner, being the biggest dinner of the season, gives us an extra bonus: leftovers! After cooking for hours, you may not want to cook again for days. Let the leftovers make it easier! Today, I am sharing how to use leftover stuffing to make muffins, or as my kids call them: stuffins! I used sausage stuffing but you can use any kind you have on hand.

In my house, kids actually prefer the muffins to the classic stuffing, so if you need to jazz it up, serve these for the holiday dinner. They are bound to be a hit!

Ingredients:

Stuffing in a bowl, melted butter in a small bowl and eggs in a carton on a white board.
  • leftover stuffing: homemade, boxed, or from a bag; mine had sausage, onions, celery, garlic, and spices;
  • eggs: help bind the ingredients;
  • butter: helps create crispy tops and adds rich flavor.

How to make muffins with leftover stuffing?

  • Melt butter and cool to room temperature.
  • Preheat the oven and grease the muffin pan. You can also use parchment liners.
  • Mix butter with eggs.
  • Pour mixture over stuffing and stir in gently.
  • Scoop the stuffing mixture into the muffin pan.
  • Bake for 20 to 24 minutes or until golden brown on top.

What stuffing should I use?

We are using leftovers so use the stuffing you have on hand and like! It can be homemade, from a box (like Stove Top) or from a bag (like Pepperidge Farm). If it’s made with mostly bread cubes, herbs and spices, you can add cooked veggies or sausage to add more flavor and texture.

Helpful Tips!

  • If your stuffing comes from a box or a bag, you can add sauteed veggies, cooked sausage, etc.
  • You can make stuffing from scratch and bake it in a muffin pan for individual servings.
  • Don’t add more spices as the stuffing already has them.

Recipe FAQs:

Can I make them ahead of time?

Absolutely! You can make these muffins up to 2 days in advance. To reheat, just pop them in the oven at 350 degrees for 4 to 5 minutes OR until heated through.

What else can I add?

If your stuffing came from a box or a bag, it’s most likely just bread, herbs, and spices. To add flavor, saute onion, garlic, and celery in a pan. Add pork sausage and cook until brown. Cool the mixture, then add to the stuffing and proceed with the recipe.

Do I need to add any spices?

Your stuffing already has herbs and spices so the flavor is there. No need to add more! You can add sauteed veggies, like onion, garlic, celery or even cooked sausage.

How to store these muffins?

If your stuffing has sausage, store the muffins in the fridge. Otherwise, you can store the muffins on the counter, for up to 2 days. I use a cake stand with a lid.

Can I freeze them?

Yes! To freeze the muffins, make sure they are completely cooled. Place them in a freezer-safe bag and freeze for up to 2 months. If the stuffing has sausage, thaw the muffins in the fridge, then reheat.
