I don’t usually write about things that aren’t sports, but in every person’s life there comes a time when they (think) have accomplished something so important — so potentially world-changing — that they have no choice but to shout about it from the mountaintops so that every living being can revel in it’s glory. That time has come for me, but I don’t have a mountaintop. All I have is this here sports blog, that for today is a Thanksgiving leftovers blog.
How did this happen, you may ask. Go ahead and ask me now.
Hey, that’s a great question! Well what it boils down to is that I love Thanksgiving leftovers, but after eating the same thing for a couple days, it was time for a change. My job consists mostly of driving around with my brain turned off, but, on occasion, I turn it on to see what’s in there. This time what was in there was a more efficient, somehow more delicious food delivery vessel. Well, it wasn’t actually in my brain, just the idea for it was in there.
Here’s what you need:
- Mashed Potatoes
- That’s it
Looks pretty standard, until:
That, friends, is a waffle iron. I preheated the stuffing in the microwave for 30 seconds so it was easier to spread. Make a layer of stuffing about half an inch thick, and close the lid. It’s pretty much like making a waffle from there. Except it’s stuffing! I might have already mentioned that, but it’s kind of a big deal. When it stops steaming, or when it’s crispy, it’s done. It might be a little difficult to remove in one piece. It’s stuffing made into a waffle, what do expect?
I could have probably done better, but that was all the stuffing I had left. Next up, add a layer of mashed potatoes:
Here comes the gravy, because why wouldn’t you have gravy.
Some of you may be wondering “Brody, why would I need to make a waffle out of the stuffing? Couldn’t I get the same effect by just piling stuffing up on the bottom?” I might have been unclear earlier. IT’S A WAFFLE MADE OF STUFFING! Also, the crunchy texture of the waffle is really what makes this great.
Now that you’ve eaten your Thanksgiving leftover waffle, you should, like, run around the block a couple times maybe. Because that probably isn’t the healthiest thing you’ve eaten.
Thank you for reading.
