Stuffing is by far my favorite Thanksgiving dish. Everyone knows the best part is the crispy edges, and I just found a way to maximize those bits to elate everyones taste buds. Introducing the waffle iron.

Prepare a batch of stuffing and rather than baking it in a casserole, which only allows for one surface of crispiness, cook it in a waffle iron. Yup, waffle stuffing is that simple.
