One of my favourite parts of a holiday dinner is stuffing. And personally, I think why wait until Christmas dinner or Thanksgiving to have stuffing, it’s something you can have with a regular meal as well to dress it up a bit, as you can even use stuffing with you have chicken and not turkey. And of course, some people think you don’t even have meat at all to have stuffing as a side.
So if you cook an extra-large batch of stuffing so you can have leftovers, if you are a bit over ambitious about how much leftover stuffing you needed, can you freeze your leftover stuffing? The answer is definitely yes.
Allow your stuffing to cool, and then please in either a plastic Ziploc bag or an airtight freezer container and freeze. You can also flash freeze it by spreading your stuffing on a cookie sheet to freeze, and then transferring that into a vacuum-sealed bag after it is frozen. This will help prevent any freezer burn as well as keep it in perfect condition in your freezer for longer
Place stuffing in a casserole dish, cover and heat in the oven at 325F for 15 minutes, check, then continue cooking for 4-5 minutes at a time until fully heated through, as cooking time will vary based on the amount of stuffing. It is not advisable to use a microwave, because it will get soggy.
Enjoy those leftovers!
