Friendsgiving may be more popular than ever in 2020. With large family gatherings highly discouraged, you and your roomies might be staying in town and making Thanksgiving happen yourselves. We had the chance to get some great tips and recipes from Ben Gullett, Food Enthusiast and Home Cook.

  • 4 cups cooked stuffing (leftover)
  • 1 cup diced/shredded turkey
  • 1/4 onion diced
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • 6 oz. brie rind removed and diced
  • 1 tsp. butter
  • 1/4 cups chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 3 eggs beaten
  • 1 1/2 cups ground Southern Recipe Small Batch Cranberry Jalapeño pork rinds


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Place the cooked stuffing in a large bowl. 
  3. Heat the bacon grease in a large saucepan or dutch oven over medium heat. Add the onions and garlic. Cook until soft, about 2 minutes.
  4. Add the turkey and cook for 1 minute. Remove from heat and pour over the stuffing. Mix to combine.
  5. Add the brie and mix to distribute throughout the stuffing mixture.
  6. Add chicken broth until the mixture is just wet enough to form into balls.
  7. Roll stuffing into 2 inch balls. Coat in the flour, dip in the egg wash, and dredge in the crushed pork rinds. Place on a parchment paper lined baking sheet.
  8. Spray each ball with nonstick cooking spray and bake for 25-30 minutes, or until golden brown and crisp on the outside.
