Thanksgiving Eggs

(recipe, Sam Sifton)


Leftover dressing can be pressed into a pan and baked in the oven with eggs and a dusting of cheese to create a breakfast dish of remarkable heartiness and good flavor.


  1. 2 Tbsp. unsalted butter
  2. 3 to 4 cups leftover Thanksgiving dressing
  3. 6 large eggs
  4. 2 Tbsp. grated Cheddar cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Use the butter to heavily grease an 8-inch square baking pan and put into it the leftover dressing. Use the back of a spoon to press into this field of dressing 6 indentations into which you will later crack the eggs. Place the pan into the oven to heat for 10 to 15 minutes.
  2. Remove heated dressing from oven and crack the eggs into the indentations. Sprinkle with the grated cheese and return to oven to bake until the eggs are just set, approximately 8 to 10 minutes. Serve with hot sauce and coffee.
