Over the last few weeks, we’ve been sharing all sorts of recipes that you can make using leftover Thanksgiving turkey. To share a little behind-the-scenes with you – we roasted, cooked with, and ate three (three!) turkeys in the last month so we would have cooked turkey for our recipe creations.
And with two separate Thanksgiving celebrations coming up later this week – my side of the family first, then Jack’s family the following day – it is safe to say that we are eating our fill of turkey this year!
But even still – we can’t wait to make these Turkey and Gravy Savory Herbed Waffles again the day after Thanksgiving! This is another fantastic recipe that we tried from this month’s issue of Coastal Living magazine – the same issue where we found those amazing sweet potato pancakes we shared with you last week. These waffles were so delicious, we had to share it here on A Family Feast.
In the original recipe, this Turkey and Gravy Savory Herbed Waffles was served as a sandwich – but we found it easier to eat with a fork and knife. (Especially with the drippy sunny-side-up egg on top!)
The star of this recipe is the savory herbed waffles – lightly sweet, buttermilk waffles seasoned with fresh chopped thyme and sage. Those herbed waffles would be fantastic on their own, but they are especially delicious with turkey and gravy and an egg on top! Serve this delicious meal to your weekend guests for breakfast – or enjoy it for “briner” (aka “breakfast for dinner”).Print
