Select ingredients:


  1. Shape the leftover stuffing into 1-inch cubes or balls.
  2. Whisk together the eggs and milk in a bowl.
  3. In a separate bowl, place the breadcrumbs.
  4. Dip each “stuffing bite” in the egg mixture and then dredge in the breadcrumbs, then set aside on a plate.
  5. In a medium saucepan, place the cranberries, sugar, and water. Heat to a boil, stirring frequently, then lower the heat and simmer for 10 to 15 minutes, stirring frequently until the sauce thickens.
  6. Let the sauce cool and then blend it in a food processor along with the walnuts and the pepper.
  7. Prepare a pan for deep frying the bites. Heat the oil to approximately 350 degree and then carefully place the bites in the oil.
  8. Fry each bite for 2 to 3 minutes or until golden brown.
  9. Remove with a slotted spoon and place on paper towels to drain.
  10. Serve with the cranberry sauce pesto for dipping.
