How to make Leftover Turkey Stuffing Balls
Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 375 degrees. Using cooking spray, lightly grease a baking sheet.
Step 2: In the meantime, warm up the potatoes and stuffing,
Step 3: Place the stuffing and turkey in a large bowl. Season with black pepper. Mix well until just blended, then shape the mixture into balls, firmly pressing them down.
Step 4: Onto the prepared baking sheet, arrange the balls. Place in the preheated oven and bake for about 10 to 12 minutes.
Step 5: Remove from the oven when done and transfer the turkey stuffing balls to a plate, then coat with hot gravy. Enjoy!
For this recipe, you can just mix equal parts of mashed potatoes and stuffing, then half of the shredded turkey. No real measurements are required.
I also coat the balls in seasoned panko and lightly fry them in butter and grapeseed oil. Make sure to use room-temperature ingredients. Shape the mixture into balls, then coat them with panko.
If the balls ended up super soft, you can place them in the fridge for a bit before frying.
