    Leftover stuffing? 15th Oct 06 at 3:36 PM
    Everytime I have a roast chicken for Sunday lunch I am always left with some uneaten stuffing , apart from eating in cold chicken sandwiches does anyone have any ideas what else I could do with it? There is some chicken leftover too I wonder if I could make some sort of chicken rissole? I ususally end up throwing it out.....

    Thanks

    Make stuffing balls and freeze until you need them. Next time use the balls - no stuffing to make.I freeze gravy also if I make too much, then just use next time around.

    I often have left over stuffing and meat from sunday, so on monday I put what ever meat there is left over and the stuffing in a big dish and pour over yorkshire pudding mix bake in the oven. It's lovely and makes a little meat go a long way

    Hi
    I would freeze it too, or make a hash, if its a mix you could use it as a crunchy topping for a bake made from leftovers

    Leftover made up stuffing - what can I make?
    I'm really loathe to throw it out but I simply cannot think of what I do to use up half a made up bag of Paxo sage & onion stuffing. Other than making into stuffing balls and freezing what can I do with it?

    Use as a thickener/seasoning in mince beef stew.

    Bake some jacket potatoes, scoop out the middle; mash postato, stuffing and a tin of mackerel; place back into potato skins and crisp off in the oven (top with cheese if liked and eat with baked beans... YUM!)

    Actually I LOVE frozen stuffing balls, they seem to crisp up better than fresh ones - and you can 'roast' them in the chip-pan.

    Good morning. With left over stuffing can you not eat it with the next meal? Cook sausage & mash for eg.

    Or as you say put it in the freezer for the next time.

    In my house if anything is not wanted it goes in the dog he always abides to the being green rule and scoffs most things.
    If winter comes, can spring be far behind?

    Mix it with some sausagemeat, then shape into little patties/balls before cooking. Delicious! We often have this as a cheap "meat" part of a roast dinner with veggies and gravy, and it is one of our favourites.

    The only problem with this is that your family will now always want their stuffing balls to contain sausagemeat, because they taste so much better this way...!!!

    I love leftover stuffing in sandwiches but if there's any left after that I normally serve it with the next meal that has gravy.

    There are more ideas that may help on this thread:

    Leftover stuffing?

    I'll add this thread to that one later to keep the suggestions together.

    Although it'llbe sardines not mackerel

    Hadn't any other leftovers to eat it with today as it had all been converted into other stuff and into the freezer last night (aren't I good?!) but had left that in the oven and forgotten about it. Also hadn't anything defrosted to make meatballs etc with it.

    Thank you for all your suggestions

    two huge boxes of stuffing!
    what on earth do I do with them?

    I bought them at crimbo, completely forgot all about them, until I did a cupboard sort last night (nesting hormone, great for doing those jobs you never could be @rsed to do before!)

    anyway, other than sticking it up a chickens bum, what else could I do with it?

    would appreciate any easy/cheap recipes

    mix the stuffing as you would normally, then combine it with sausage meat. and make stuffing and sausage , sausage roll's.

    U can use a pack of puff pastry or make your own. glaze with a beaten egg and cook for abotu 15-20 mins in an oven.

    They are delish.
