Thanksgiving Leftover Bites

Compliments of Product Development Chef Benjamin D’Amico


Serves: 8

Prep Time: 30 minutes

Cook Time: 20 hours

  • 3 cups leftover stuffing
  • 1-½ cups leftover turkey, small dice
  • 2 cups leftover mashed potatoes
  • ½ cup shredded Market District Vermont White Cheddar cheese
  • 2 Tbsp. dried cranberries
  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 2 cups Market District panko bread crumbs
  • 2 cups leftover gravy

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Combine leftover stuffing, turkey, mashed potatoes, Cheddar cheese and dried cranberries in a bowl. Mix until ingredients are a texture that can be formed into balls.

Roll into 1-½ to 2-inch round balls. Roll balls lightly in flour, one at a time. Then, dip into beaten egg and finally, bread crumbs.

Place the balls onto a parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake for 17-20 minutes or until golden brown on the outside. Internal temperature should reach 145°F.

Serve with a side of warm leftover gravy.
