How To Reheat Stuffing
Can I assume that you love stuffing as much as me? It has always been one of those side dishes, that I just want to binge on, every time it is served.
This is especially the case when I make my slow cooker stuffing for turkey. It is so yummy, and I will use the slow cooker as a serving dish on the dinner table.
I then find myself putting my fork back in the slow cooker to get a little bit more and of course that little bit more turns into a LOT.
Or if I am in a rush and want a FAST stuffing recipe I will binge on air fryer stuffing balls.
But what about when you do have restraint and don’t binge on your stuffing all in one go? Or if you want to make your stuffing ahead of time to reheat at Thanksgiving or Christmas?
That is when we come to the rescue and show you how to reheat stuffing and how to make stuffing taste amazing without drying it out.

Can You Reheat Stuffing?
Yes, you can. Stuffing is one of those amazing Thanksgiving sides, that reheats perfectly. You can also grab your Thanksgiving leftovers on Black Friday and then reheat them in bulk together and have Thanksgiving part 2.
Can You Make Stuffing Ahead Of Time And Reheat?
You certainly can. You could do this up to three months before you plan to eat it, on the condition, that you are going to freeze the stuffing.
You can cook the stuffing ahead of time or prep it raw and load into a freezer bag and then cook thawed the day you want to eat the stuffing.
It’s a total time saver that is for sure.
Can You Reheat Stuffing With Sausage Meat?
Yes, you can. The stuffing that we LOVE is made with sausage meat. I don’t think we ever make stuffing any other way and its ideal for reheating either with the air fryer, microwave, instant pot or Crockpot.
Can You Reheat Stuffing Twice?
No, you can’t. Stuffing with meat in can only be reheated once because the golden rule with meat is a single reheat to avoid food poisoning.
If you plan to use the stuffing twice. i.e. for thanksgiving and then for leftovers, then I recommend you make ahead your stuffing raw and this will avoid it being reheated twice.
Or go with a vegetarian stuffing which because there is no meat, it can be reheated twice.
What Is The Best Way To Reheat Stuffing?
The best way to reheat stuffing is with your kitchen gadgets. You can reheat stuffing with the air fryer, the instant pot, the slow cooker, or the microwave.
Personal preference is to reheat the stuffing using the air fryer. No matter which air fryer I have used, it has done the best job.
I also want to mention that the same time and temp was used for reheating stuffing balls and reheating regular stuffing.
They were air fried at the same time from two different air fryers and both were magical, so totally up to you which you prefer.
Does Stuffing Reheat Well?
Yes, it does. But ONLY if you add butter. We have all heard the saying that everything you love tastes better, because of the butter, well it is true!
Also note, that if you made traditional stuffing it would always have butter mixed in, or if you use boxed stuffing then that same rule applies.
How To Keep Stuffing Moist When Reheating?
I recommend adding some butter over the stuffing or spraying with some extra virgin olive oil.
Or the lower calorie option is to add some balsamic vinegar.
This creates extra moisture to your stuffing and stops it from drying out.
How Do I Reheat Stuffing?
- Load. Add your precooked stuffing onto foil into the air fryer.
- Add. Grab a knob of butter and spread it out over the stuffing.
- Cook. Air fry for 5 minutes depending on how powerful your air fryer is and then serve in a serving dish with your other leftovers.
Or if using stuffing balls then add the balls direct into the air fryer basket. They will break up a bit, which will make them like regular stuffing. Also, because they were originally in balls, they will break up as they are air fried.
We also experimented when reheating stuffing and found that whether you used foil or not the cook time was the same and that neither batch was dry.
My FAVOURITE was doing the balls and not combining them properly, then as the air fryer worked its magic they went wonderfully crispy like an onion bhaji.
Reheat Stuffing In Instant Pot – Place the stuffing in a pot in pot container with a knob of butter and add a cup of water to the bottom of the inner pot. Add your trivet, add your pot in pot container and cover with foil. Pressure cook for 3 minutes followed by a quick pressure release.
Reheat Stuffing In Microwave – Load stuffing into a microwave safe bowl with a knob of butter and microwave for 2 minutes on high power.
Reheat Stuffing In Crockpot – You can keep the stuffing in the slow cooker if you originally made it in here ready for reheating. Then add an extra knob of butter and spray the pot a little with extra virgin olive oil as it will stop it from sticking. Then slow cook for 1 hour on high.
What Temp To Reheat Stuffing?
The recommended reheat stuffing temperature is 160c/320f. This will ensure that your stuffing is piping hot again and kill off any germs and stop your stuffing from drying out.
There is nothing worse than stuffing that has dried out.
