Yes, with the right reheating, your leftover stuffing can taste as amazing as it did on the first day!

Everyone knows that a great stuffing recipe is a must-have on the Christmas or Thanksgiving dinner table when it comes to creating the ultimate holiday feast, but like any holiday meal, there will inevitably be leftovers (you have to leave room for some delectable Thanksgiving desserts, after all!). By then, you’re probably wondering how to properly reheat stuffing since, let’s face it, nothing is worse than dried-out leftovers. Fortunately, the culinary experts at the Shikha Food Test Kitchen shared with us all of their finest reheating advice and techniques, including the key to reheating the stuffing without drying it out.

Reheating stuffing over the stove:

The Shikha Food Test Kitchen says that cooking leftover stuffing in a skillet over the stovetop is the best method for reheating it. This is not just one of the quickest ways, but it will guarantee the crispiest outcome! You may want to throw an additional pat of butter or sprinkle of oil into the pan first for some more moisture, depending on how buttery your stuffing recipe was in the first place. The bread should then be cooked over medium heat for 3 to 5 minutes, or until it is warm and golden brown.

How to use the oven to reheat stuffing:

If you’re reheating a lot of this delicious Thanksgiving side dish, your best option may be to use the oven, which is another simple method of warming stuffing. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Once the stuffing is cooled, move it to an ovenproof dish (you may even continue to cook it in the same dish). You should add a dash of broth if it seems dry. After baking for 20 minutes with the foil removed, bake for a further 15 to 20 minutes, or until crisp.

How to use a microwave to reheat stuffing:

Of course, if you’re in a need, you could always reheat stuffing in your handy microwave, although we don’t recommend it. Just don’t forget to add a little broth if the stuffing seems dry before popping it into the microwave. Next, cook the stuffing in the microwave on medium power for about a minute, stirring every so often to make sure it reheats evenly.

How to rewarm stuffing from frozen:

Do you have any stuffing left over that you might freeze for a rainy day? There’s no need to even defrost frozen stuffing before reheating it in the oven! Just follow the same instructions as for reheating conventional stuffing in the oven, but you should leave it in there for a longer amount of time. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Carefully move the dish to an oven-safe dish (or continue to cook it in the same dish), cover with foil, and bake for 30 to 40 minutes, or until the stuffing is well warmed. Reheating stuffing might take up to an hour, depending on how much of it. After that, cook, covered, for a further 15 to 20 minutes, or until crisp.
