      Thanks, Michele :-) !  The recipes look delish…I always have a ton of leftover stuffing ( I make a batch in the Turkey- although they say you shouldn't do that for safety reasons…but in 30 years of making Turkey no one has even been sick) and then two Turkey molds for those who like a more dry filling. I will take what I don't use for my casserole ;) and make one on the list- "Stuffing Bites with Cranberry Pesto" ! I think I'll make more of a pancake, so I don't have to deep fry…I'll add the egg rather than coat. Can have this with something different later in the week- and still use up all the leftovers!

       Fried Stuffing Bites with Cranberry Pesto

      INGREDIENTS

      Leftover baked stuffing (your family recipe)

      2 eggs

      2 teaspoons milk

      1 cup seasoned bread crumbs

      Vegetable or canola oil (enough to fill pan 2 inches deep)

      1 cup cranberry sauce

      (any type of cranberry sauce works –

      jellied, whole berry, canned or uncanned!)

      1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

      1/2 cup walnuts

      Directions

      1. Cut leftover stuffing into bite-sized cubes, then gently form

      into balls and set aside.

      2. I n a small bowl whisk together eggs and milk. Coat each stuffing

      bite with this egg wash, then dredge in the bread crumbs until

      fully coated and set aside.

      3. I n a medium saucepan, using a deep–frying thermometer,

      heat oil to 350 degrees.

      4. I n a food processor blend cranberry sauce, pepper and walnuts

      until it reaches a pesto-like consistency. Set aside. Once oil

      is at temperature, fry each piece of stuffing until golden

      brown, about 4 minutes. Drain on a paper towel and serve

      with cranberry pesto.

        Good idea- individual serving sized!  I use one like this for my out of bird dressing:

        http://www.nordicware.com/store/products/detail/turkey-cake-pan/D5A1B548-0CD7-102E-91C0-0026B942890D

        I think it looks pretty on the Turkey-themed table. I usually make a breakfast bread in this before hand and we have that with hot chocolate while watching the Macy's parade. I make Turkey shaped butter as well ( used to buy it, but I can rarely find it in the stores) I use the the 3D standing turkey candy mold that I use to make chocolate turkeys for each place setting. My daughter  loves helping with all this holiday activity. I don't know why this appeals to me- but I just can't get enough of this sort of thing. One year I was a little overwhelmed and didn't go all out — thought the kids wouldn't care…was so surprised that my son was the most heartbroken about all the missing theme items.

        Ahhhhhhhh, food/decoration/celebration chat… LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE  — simple minded creature that I am ;)

        oh well..that's cool! I might have to go buy one and maybe put something in it. They mention cranberry sauce..that would be sweet.

         

        I am TOTALLY into Thanksgiving this year, even though probably neither of my boys will be here, just a couple of friends.

        First snow today!!
