Gobbler Cakes

It doesn’t get much simpler than this!  After all that exhausting Thanksgiving Day preparation and cooking, here’s an easy-to-make, savory treat.


1 large egg
2 cups cooked stuffing
1-1/4 cups finely chopped cooked turkey
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup crushed cornflakes
1 tablespoon canola oil
Cranberry sauce and turkey gravy, optional


  • In a large bowl, mix egg, stuffing, turkey, cranberries and mayonnaise. Shape into eight 1/2-in.-thick patties. Coat with crushed cornflakes.
  • In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add patties in batches; cook 3-4 minutes on each side or until golden brown.
  • Serve warm, with cranberry sauce and gravy if desired.

Although the creator of this dish did not specify any variations, the mixed ingredients can probably be made into balls and scooped or pressed into small muffin tins and baked at a medium setting to make little appetizers. The dressing and turkey is already cooked so it would just take a few minutes to cook the egg through and heat them up. There is enough oil and mayonnaise in the mix to not require greasing the muffin tins; nonstick tins could be used. Oven temperatures vary, but 5 to 10 minutes in a preheated 350 degree oven should suffice, depending on the size of the balls and how crispy you like your little muffins. Children like to cook small items, as it can be more fun for them.
