So I have been trying to find some new ways to use all of the Thanksgiving left overs this year (not that I don’t love a good Turkey sandwich on sourdough but….). Between this desire and watching way too much Chopped, I was on a mission to find non-conventional ways of using everything. Of all the ingredients, the stuffing was giving me the most grief, so I decided to try something new. Utilizing the stuffing, I made nests for eggs to poach in. The result? Phenomenally good.
Here is how I did it:
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
- Spray a muffin pan with non-stick spray.
- Scoop a heaping tablespoon or two of leftover stuffing into each tin, molding the stuffing to the shape of the pan leaving a well for the egg to join the party later.
- Place in the oven for 5 minutes allowing the stuffing nest to begin to brown.
- Individually crack an egg for every nest into a bowl and pour into the nest (beware, there is a strong possibility you will have more egg than nest area – be sure the yolk makes it in before it is full).
- Return to the oven and bake for 12 minutes.
- Carefully remove each nest from the pan and plate topping with your favorite fresh herbs, salt and pepper to taste.
- Leftover stuffing
- Fresh herbs of your choice
