Vegan Stuffing Waffles
A savory take on the classic waffle. This can be enjoyed year round, not just during the holidays!
I had heard of stuffing waffles for far too long before making them. Don't sleep on this one! And just because stuffing is traditionally made during the holidays doesn't mean you can't enjoy this year round. I will definitely be making this on a semi-regular basis.
The only special equipment you need for this is a WAFFLE MAKER and if you don't own one, I highly suggest buying one! They are worth their weight in gold for sure.
For these waffles we have 2 variations on toppings. You can either do a gravy or a cranberry sauce. And if you're reading this and don't have any leftovers handy, don't worry, I've got some ideas on how you can whip this up in no time!
We're gonna make some fresh cranberry sauce, and gravy, as well as take a shortcut to whip up some stuffing ASAP! Gravy is pretty dang easy to make, as is cranberry sauce, assuming you can find cranberries that is of course. For the stuffing, I used a vegan stuffing mix I found at Whole Foods. The "Pork" variety of Stove Top stuffing is apparently accidentally vegan, so if you have access to that, go for it! Otherwise you'll have to go the traditional route of drying out bread cubes in the oven.

1/4 cup vegan butter
1/4 cup flour
2 cups veggie or beefless broth
1 Tbsp Turkey Rub seasoning (or seasoning of choice)
1 Tbsp Mushroom Seasoning
In a skillet over medium heat, melt the butter.
Once butter has been melted, whisk in 1 Tbsp of flour at a time until combined.
After flour and butter have been combined, whisk in the veggie or beefless broth, about 1/2 cup at a time.
Season with Turkey Rub and Mushroom seasoning or seasoning of choice.
Reduce to desired consistency, about 10 - 15 minutes.
12 oz cranberries
1 cup orange juice
1/2 cup organic sugar
1/2 cup maple syrup
2 tsp pumpkin spice
1 Tbsp hot sauce (optional)
Add everything to a pot and cook over medium heat.
You'll cook the berries down for about 20 minutes or so. They will pop on their own, or you can smash them against the pan with a wooden spoon, or both!
Once they are cooked down to your desired consistency, remove from heat. It will firm up a lot once it cools!
1 package vegan stuffing mix
2 - 4 Tbsp vegan butter
3 ribs of celery (diced)
1 medium onion (diced)
4 cloves garlic (minced)
2 Tbsp chopped chives
2 Beyond Sausages (or equivalent)
1 Tbsp Turkey Rub Seasoning (or seasoning of choice)
While you need to follow the instructions for your packaged stuffing we're gonna upgrade it to include some vegan sausage and some veggies.
Over medium heat, melt your vegan butter, then add your onions and celery and cook for a few minutes.
Crumble your vegan sausage and add that to the pan and cook until browned.
Add turkey rub seasoning.
Add garlic and chives and cook for another minute or so.
Once the sausage and veggies are cooked to your liking, remove from heat.
Now assemble the stuffing mix according to package instructions, but combine the sausage and veggie mixture.
Congratulations, you've upgraded your boring stuffing mix!
Makes 1 Waffle
1 Heaping Cup of Leftover Stuffing
1/4 Cup Vegan Parmesan (I used Follow Your Heart)
2 Tbsp Egg Replacer (I used Just Egg, but you can use Plant Milk)
Plus Gravy for Topping or Cranberry Sauce
Combine the Stuffing, Parmesan and Egg in a bowl. Once thoroughly mixed, add to the center of a Waffle Press (Ideally a Belgian Waffle Press)
Once Waffle is cooked, top with Gravy or Cranberry Sauce! Ideally you heat up the cranberry sauce for a few minutes too!
