Second Day Stuffing Bites

This is a recipe I have been trying to make for some time.  But I could never seem to have any left over stuffing, despite the fact that I make huge amounts and there are always leftovers.  It was more a case of that when I opened the fridge the next day in the morning the stuffing called to me, tempted me, led me astray and I would give in to it’s siren call.  Cold stuffing rocks…

But finally I managed to contain myself, and this was the result…

I only used one egg and one tablespoon of milk with 1/2 cup breadcrumbs, which was plenty for the half loaf tin of stuffing I used.  Also, I couldn’t get walnuts to make the cranberry pesto, so I had to just use cranberry sauce.  But when I can get them…
