To reuse your leftover stuffing, Joseph Leonardi C.E.C., executive chef at Somerset Club in Boston and member of the American Culinary Federation, recommends this recipe for Fried Bread Sticks [source: Leonardi].

Ingredients:

  • 3/4 cup Gruyère cheese
  • 3 cups leftover stuffing
  • 3 cups flour
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 6 eggs, beaten
  • 3 cups Italian-seasoned breadcrumbs
  • 2 cups frying oil
  • 2 cups turkey gravy

Directions:

  • Mix the cheese with the stuffing. Separate into 2 ounce servings and shape into sticks.
  • Place sticks in the freezer.
  • Place the flour (seasoned with salt and pepper), eggs and breadcrumbs into three separate bowls.
  • Dip each stick into the flour bowl, then the eggs, then the breadcrumbs. Re-dip the sticks into the eggs and breadcrumbs. Freeze the sticks.
  • Heat the frying oil in a pot to approximately 350 degrees.
  • Remove the sticks from the freezer. Fry them in the oil until golden brown. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Top with turkey gravy or cranberry sauce.
