This recipe takes a little bit of prep but is totally worth the end result. These can be made as an entree of even a snack for a party. I serve them as entrees because you can have more than one & not feel super guilty about all of the tastiness that you've just inhaled.
You may have some left over stuffing. I always save it & have it for lunch the next day. It's good cold or hot. Then again, Im a fan of cold pizza as a hangover cure, or just for the hell of it so, that may or may not be up your alley.

Transfer to a large bowl & wipe out the skillet.
