Leftover Turkey Sandwich on Dressing Waffles

Leftover Turkey Sandwich on Dressing Waffles

Serves: 2

Hands On Time: 

Total Time: 


1 1/2 cups leftover cornbread dressing
1 large egg
2 tablespoons buttermilk
8 ounces cooked turkey
4 tablespoons cranberry sauce
1/2 cup gravy, for serving


Heat a waffle iron according to the manufacturer’s instructions and spray generously with nonstick spray. In a medium bowl, combine dressing, egg and buttermilk. Scoop dressing mixture into the center of the waffle iron and lightly spread toward the sides. Cook until waffle is crisp on the outside, about 8 to 10 minutes.

Remove from the waffle iron and cut into fourths. Spread two of the waffle pieces with cranberry sauce and top with cooked turkey.

Place remaining waffles on top and serve with warm gravy for dipping or drizzling.

About the recipe

Turning cornbread dressing into waffles is a fun way to reuse leftovers that may remain in your fridge after Thanksgiving. They’ll need plenty of nonstick pan spray and a longer cooking time than most standard waffle recipes.
