Air Fryer Leftover Stuffing Muffins

Stuffing Muffins

Have you heard of stuffing muffins before? The idea is that you make use of your leftover stuffing and other ingredients and make them into yummy muffins.

They are then perfect for the day after Thanksgiving or the day after Christmas, when you have loads of leftovers that need using up and you are looking for something more creative.

Plus, we often talk about the best leftover recipes for turkey in the air fryer, but we often forget to talk about the delicious stuffing.

Well, stuffing is my favourite leftover recipe and I just can’t stop eating it, even cold from the fridge and I wanted to share with you a simple idea.

An idea that has become my leftover stuffing for breakfast.

Following the principles of our air fryer egg cups, which is similar to an omelette, I am loading turkey, stuffing, cranberries and a few other extras into silicone cups and air frying.

What Are Stuffing Muffins?

If you are feeling puzzled and are wondering what stuffing muffins are? then note they are just like muffins but are loaded up with your stuffing leftovers.

They are just like the air fryer egg cups we often have for breakfast, but the omelette ingredients usually added are replaced with leftover turkey and stuffing.

Can You Cook Stuffing Muffins In The Air Fryer?

Yes, you can cook stuffing muffins in the air fryer and they are delicious. I have done many different types of muffins now in the air fryer and they have always been perfect every single time.

You can also go sweet such as our air fryer blueberry muffins.

Though do note, you can’t fit a muffin pan in the air fryer and instead we recommend silicone cups (like these ones).

What To Do With Leftover Stuffing?

Thanksgiving stuffing muffins is the best way to repurpose thanksgiving leftovers, but what else can you make with your stuffing leftovers?

You can make thanksgiving leftover sandwiches like the moist maker in Friends. You could also load your leftover stuffing into an air fryer turkey pie.

But if you just want the stuffing note that you can just reheat stuffing if you prefer. Which also works well if you want to make ahead your stuffing.
