Leftover Idea: Veggie Stuffing Bowls

What do you do when the only leftovers you have from a roast dinner are stuffing and gravy? This is the task I faced the other night when I was deciding on our dinner options.

I love stuffing and gravy, both of which are treats that we don’t have very often. I’ll be darned if I was going to let it go to waste!

But what to do with it?

That evening was a very cold and rainy night. Complete with freezing rain and then snow, all of which screamed for a big bowl of something warm and comforting.  Then the idea came to me, why not make a stuffing bowl?

I had veggies and decided to combine that with the stuffing.

I didn’t measure anything, so the following are guesstimates.

Andrea’s Veggie Stuffing Bowls

  • Leftover Stuffing
  • Leftover Gravy
  • 1 Small Head of Cauliflower, chopped up into bite size pieces
  • 1 Yellow Squash, chopped into bite size pieces
  • Leftover roast veggies if you have them
  • 1/2 TBSP Olive Oil
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • 1/2tsp All Purpose or Poultry Seasoning
  • 1tsp Garlic Powder

In a sautee pan, add the olive oil and heat over medium heat.  Toss in the squash and cauliflower, season with seasonings and stir.  Sautee until the squash starts to soften. Add in the leftover stuffing and heat through. Spoon into bowls and serve! Top with heated up leftover gravy.

Super easy, right? Very comforting and yummy as well! The cauliflower stays crunchy which provides a nice texture since everything else is on the softer side.  This is really just a concept idea more than an exact recipe because you can use whatever veggies you have on hand in this dish. Even adding in some beans would be a great idea and give you a little protein boost.

This also might be great done casserole style. Combine everything in a casserole dish (except the gravy) and add in a little liquid of choice.  Bake for about 1/2 and hour to let the veggies soften up, then serve!

Perfect bowl of delicious on a cold wintery evening!

Do you like leftovers? I like being able to get creative with them!

Have fun guys, and remember, always play with your food! Enjoy!

  1. Great idea! I love stuffing. I’m not sure what it is, the sage, poultry seasoning, overload of carbs? :) It is just so darn tasty and comforting.
