Stuffing waffles for Thanksgiving - recipe needed
« on: November 08, 2017, 09:37:00 PM »
A lovely cafe we have visited 5 times in the last 4-5 months serves a delicious meal called "Thanksgiving Waffles," which I have gotten 4 out of the 5 times I've been there.  It is several generous slices of excellent white meat turkey (best I have ever had in a restaurant) served on top of a good sized waffle made of stuffing, with gravy and cranberry sauce on the side.  The waffle appears to have been made in a Belgian waffle maker and not the standard home-style waffle iron that has smaller indentations.  The "stuffing" is possibly a cornbread batter with very finely cut up carrots, celery, onions and parsley, plus some dried herbs (I'm thinking savory, sage, thyme, maybe a bit of garlic powder).

Has anyone got a recipe like this that would work in a home-style waffle maker?  I'd like to make this for Thanksgiving instead of standard stuffing (which I cook in a large pan).  Last year I made stuffing muffins and they were pretty good, but these waffles are outstanding.  Thanks!  I'm also going to email them and ask if they would share their recipe, but it would be good to have some options.  I'd probably make these the day before and heat them up just before serving dinner.

I made them with boxed stuffing (first time ever buying it!) and they were delicious. I added just enough chicken broth to make them stick together. I also let them bake a little longer than a usual waffle.

I've done stuffing waffles a couple of times. I just used my left over cornbread dressing but added an egg and a little bit of chicken broth to make it wetter. We served them with sausage gravy instead of turkey because we've usually already eaten all the turkey.

Do you remember what brand of mix you used?  I was concerned about the size of the indentations in my waffle iron, but will probably try a mix and see how it goes.  Thanks!

Stove Top - cornbread flavor. I forgot to mention that I did add egg.

Thanks for this suggestion.  I want to do the waffles with a fresh mix to replace my usual stuffing, so there won't be any leftover stuffing to make the waffles from.  Maybe I can try making my usual stuffing wetter and putting it directly in the waffle iron.  Gobble, gobble!
