Stove Top Stuffing Waffle Ingredients
Whether you are putting leftovers to use or making fresh stuffing waffles, these delicious waffles only take 4 ingredients!
Stove Top Stuffing: Grab 2 boxes of Stove Top Stuffing from your local grocery store or use homemade stuffing leftovers.
Eggs: To make these waffles, you will need 2 eggs. Eggs act as your binding agent, so you don’t want to skip this ingredient.
Chicken Stock: Infuse your stuffing with flavor by using ¼ a cup of chicken stock.
For Cooking: For cooking, spray your waffle maker with pan spray.
How to Make Stove Top Stuffing Waffles
Prepare Stuffing. Prepare the Stove Top stuffing based on the package instructions. Once prepared spread out in a pan and cool completely for about 30 minutes.
Add Eggs. Add the Stove Top stuffing to a medium-sized or large-sized mixing bowl and add 2 whisked eggs and chicken stock. Mix all ingredients together until well incorporated.
Shape the stuffing. Form the stuffing into 8 equal size balls; about ⅓ cup each. Pack the stuffing tightly so they hold their shape. Spray the waffle maker and press the stuffing into the bottom so the mixture fills the entire waffle maker.
Cook. Press the top of the waffle maker down and hold for about 15 seconds. Continue to cook until the waffle is crispy. Transfer to a cooling rack and store in the oven or microwave while you continue to make the rest of the waffles.
Reheating Stove Top Stuffing Waffles
Looking to reheat your leftover waffles? You can reheat the waffles in the air fryer or oven at 400 for about 5 minutes until the waffles are golden and crispy.
Kitchen Tools for Stuffing Waffles
Grab your waffle maker; it’s time to cook up something incredible!
Waffle Maker: To make stuffing waffles, there is no better kitchen tool than a waffle maker. Don’t have a waffle maker, you can check out mine, or you can be on the lookout this Black Friday and Cyber Monday for a deal.
Air Fryer: If you made a large batch and now have leftover waffles, you can reheat them in an air fryer. I suggest the Vortex air fryer oven, it is my favorite.
Oven: Don’t have an air fryer to reheat your stuffing waffles? No worries, you can reheat your waffles in the oven as well.
How do you make Stove Top Stuffing not Soggy?
Don’t oversaturate your stuffing!
The key is to make the stuffing mixture moist, not sopping wet. Follow the measurements carefully to ensure you get the right consistency.
Need more than 8 waffles? Double or triple the recipe accordingly.
Why won’t my Waffles get Crispy?
This goes for all waffles, not just stuffing waffles. If your waffles don’t get crispy, moisture is your problem.
As I mentioned above, you want some moisture, that’s what makes a tender waffle. However, you don’t want it sopping wet either.
Too much extra moister will soften the waffle’s outer crust and not allow it to get that crispy outer edge you are looking for.
What can I top Waffles with?
Whether your waffles are plain or Stove Top Stuffing Waffles, the toppings are endless!
With Stove Top stuffing waffles, I recommend topping or pairing the waffle with any/wall of the side food fixings people enjoy like:
- Cranberry Sauce
- Green Bean Casserole
- Mashed Potatoes
- Turkey … or leftover turkey
- Ham … or leftover ham
- Fried Egg
With regular plain ol’ waffles you can stick with the favorites like
- Maple Syrup
- Fresh berries
