Have you ever been overwhelmed when you open the refrigerator the day after Thanksgiving and see all of those leftovers? Reheating those leftovers the same way, day after day, gets old very quickly. Here’s a fun and tasty way to turn dinner into an on-the-go breakfast special or maybe breakfast for dinner.

Recipe Ingredients

  • nonstick cooking spray
  • 4 cups crumbled leftover stuffing
  • 1 cup chopped cooked turkey
  • ¾ cup frozen corn kernels, thawed
  • 1 tablespoon chicken broth, or as needed
  • 12 (1/2 inch) cubes Cheddar cheese
  • 5 large eggs eggs
  • 2 tablespoons chicken broth
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • ½ cup cranberry sauce

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Spray muffin tin cups with cooking spray.
  2. 2 Combine stuffing, turkey, and corn kernels in a large bowl, and stir gently. If mixture is particularly dry, add 1 tablespoon chicken broth, a little at a time, until mixture is moist, but not mushy. Loosely and equally portion stuffing mixture amongst the 12 muffin cups. Insert a Cheddar cheese cube into the center of each muffin cup.
  3. 3 Whisk eggs, 2 tablespoons chicken broth, salt, and pepper together in a cup. Divide egg mixture evenly among the cups. The egg mixture will not completely cover the stuffing, but it puffs up when baked.
  4. 4 Bake in the preheated oven until muffins are browned and slightly crisp on the top, 25 to 30 minutes.
  5. 5 Allow to cool for about 5 minutes before removing the muffins by running a knife around the edge of each cup. Serve warm with a dollop of cranberry sauce spooned on the top.

Chef's Notes

The muffins may be frozen in a zip-top plastic bag and reheated.


  1. Because we are a family of big eaters, we never have leftovers! I thought this recipe looked so good & simple to make, I had to improvise with what I had. So I used Stovetop turkey dressing & 1/2 lb. of cooked ground turkey & 1/2 can of corn. The muffins were delicious! We've already - Read more ...
