Turkey & Stuffing Eggs Benedict Recipe
- 3 cups leftover cooked stuffing
- 4 egg yolks
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1/2 cup butter, melted
- 1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley
- Dash salt
- Dash ground nutmeg
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 4 eggs
- 3/4 pound sliced leftover cooked turkey, warmed
- 1. Shape stuffing into four 1/2-in.-thick patties; set aside. In top of a double boiler or a metal bowl over simmering water, whisk egg yolks and lemon juice until blended; cook until mixture is just thick enough to coat a metal spoon and temperature reaches 160°, whisking constantly.
- 2. Reduce heat to very low. Very slowly drizzle in warm melted butter, whisking constantly. Whisk in parsley, salt and nutmeg. Transfer to a small bowl. Place bowl in a larger bowl of warm water. Keep warm, stirring occasionally, until ready to serve, up to 30 minutes.
- 3. In a large nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Cook stuffing patties 3-4 minutes on each side or until a thermometer reads 165°. Keep warm.
- 4. Meanwhile, place 2-3 in. of water in a large saucepan or skillet with high sides. Bring to a boil; adjust heat to maintain a gentle simmer. Break cold eggs, one at a time, into a small bowl; holding bowl close to surface of water, slip egg into water.
- 5. Cook, uncovered, 3-5 minutes or until whites are completely set and yolks begin to thicken but are not hard. Using a slotted spoon, lift eggs out of water.
- 6. To serve, place turkey and eggs on stuffing patties. Top with hollandaise sauce. Yield: 4 servings.

Reviews for Turkey & Stuffing Eggs Benedict
"These were really fun to make and came out great. I didn't think the stuffing would hold together so well but it did."
"We inevitably have leftover stuffing and turkey at Christmas. I always put mine in food saver bags and freeze. This was an excellent way to use up my leftovers. Excellent recipe and will make again."
"This is an excellent idea! The Hollandaise was simple and delicious, and made for a good way to use up leftovers. Instead of just stuffing I made the Crispy Mashed Potato & Stuffing Patties at http://www.tasteofhome.com/recipes/crispy-mashed-potato---stuffing-patties , but leaving out the turkey so I could slice it and serve it on top of the patty, as done here. This was really a hit, and may have started a Black Friday lunch tradition for us!"
