Leftover Turkey Stuffing Balls

Enjoy Thanksgiving in one bite of these delicious Leftover Turkey Stuffing Balls!



1 ½ c. shredded turkey

3 c. mashed potatoes

3 c. stuffing



Optional: Black pepper


Set the oven to 375 degrees. Using cooking spray, lightly grease a baking sheet.

Meanwhile, reheat the potatoes and stuffing. This will make them easier to handle.

Throw the mashed potatoes, stuffing, and turkey into a big bowl. If desired, season with black pepper. Mix well.

Shape the mixture into balls, firmly pressing each ball down to make a snowball.

Onto the prepared baking sheet, line the balls. Bake the turkey balls for about 10 to 12 minutes in the preheated oven.

Place the Turkey balls on serving plates and smother them in hot gravy.


For this recipe, there is no need for real measurement. Just mix equal parts of mashed potatoes and stuffing with half the portion of shredded turkey.

I like coating these balls in panko and frying them in a little olive oil/butter like a crab cake. You can chill these balls a bit as they are super soft before frying.

How To Make it Gluten free

Use your favorite gluten-free bread in place of stuffing, or make your own.

Gluten-free gravy or homemade.

Dry bread crumbs, crushed pretzels, or matzo meal are great gluten-free substitutes for panko.
