Stuffing Balls

Okay, you have to admit, that is a grab your attention post title..."Stuffing Balls."  I was chatting with a colleague about holiday foods and how I never keep stuffing more than three days because it spoils so quickly. He said that his wife takes the leftover stuffing and converts them into stuffing balls. 
O M G!!!  This is brilliant and I especially like not having to throw away food (my mother always said it was a sin to throw out food). 

In a nutshell, using either a 1/2 cup measure or an ice cream scooper, take stuffing and roll that amount into a ball and freeze 2-4 of your stuffing balls and put them in freezer bags and put in your freezer.

When you want stuffing, just pull out a bag full from your freezer and either bake for a golden crusty outside or nuke for like you pulled it straight from the bird.  This is so easy peasy that even a seawitch can do it. 

That's my honey giving me a big smack on the lips for being so brilliant.  I didn't have the heart to tell him this idea was from a colleague's wife...he would want to kiss her too.  Have a wonderful weekend all and blessings to you and those you love.   Sea Witch

Hi Witch!

...."ain't nothing but a thang"! Sometimes the simple confounds the wise and a light bulb goes off in our heads and says..."why didn't YOU think of that???"..

Hope you are having a great New Year!

Hi Sea Witch-

Your honey is quite a creature, lol! I'll have to remember the stuffing ball trick. We threw out a good amount of it after Christmas, which was a shame.
