Deep-Fried Stuffing turns leftover Thanksgiving stuffing into a delicious appetizer that's great for gameday. They taste great on their own and even better dipped in an easy and creamy cranberry sauce.
Prep Time 10minutes
Cook Time 10minutes
Total Time 20minutes
2/3cupshredded Monterey Jack or Mozzarella cheese
In a medium bowl, mix stuffing, melted butter, 1 egg, and cheese. Shape into balls slightly smaller than a golf ball. (If stuffing mixture is too dry to hold together, add another tablespoon of butter or a splash of chicken broth or milk.)
Whisk together the 2 eggs and milk in a bowl.
In another bowl, combine bread crumbs and salt.
Dip balls in egg mixture and then coat in bread crumbs.
Heat about 2 inches of oil in a Dutch oven to 365 degrees.
In batches ( about 6 at a time) cook the stuffing balls until golden brown on all sides. Place on a paper towel-lined plate to absorb excess oil.
Serve plain, with gravy or you can make an easy cranberry sauce by mixing together 1/2 cup mayonnaise, 1/3 cup cranberry sauce, and 1 to 2 teaspoons lime juice.
