One of the largest conundrums this time of year: Thanksgiving leftovers. Ok, so you’ve stuffed the turkey and your face, you’ve napped, then you got drunk with grandma on wine or beer. Now it’s Friday and you undoubtedly wake up from a food coma with a food baby and possibly a hangover. You go to the fridge for a sip or bite of anything that will make you feel human again and BAM! Leftovers everywhere: turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy. Now what? You’re still sick of last year’s endless reign of the turkey sandwich. Then again, you clearly can’t left the Thanksgiving remnants go to waste. The answer to your food woes: leftover stuffing waffles, turkey gravy and a runny egg to alleviate yesterday’s gluttonous guilt trip.
Tip: I use the Waring Double Belgian Waffle Maker for perfect, flawlessly toasted waffles every time. Plus, it’s ADD proof: it beeps to let you know when your darlings are perfectly golden and crispy.
