Ingredients

  • 2 large flour tortillas
  • 1 tbsp Butter
  • 1/2 cup White cheddar cheese grated
  • 1/2 cup Asiago cheese grated
  • 1/4 lb Leftover turkey breast chopped
  • 1/4 cup Cranberry Sauce homemade or store-bought
  • Finely chopped fresh thyme or rosemary for garnish (optional)

Instructions

  • Heat a large skillet over medium high heat. Add approximately 1 tablespoon of butter to the skillet and allow it to melt. When butter is melted, reduce heat to medium-low and add 1 tortilla to the skillet, making sure the entire bottom side gets coated in the butter.
  • Working quickly, place a small layer of grated cheese on top of the tortilla, followed by the chopped (or sliced) leftover turkey, sprinkle of cheese, layer of cranberry sauce and a final layer of cheese. Gently press the other tortilla on top and cover the skillet with a lid to help accelerate the cheese melting process.
  • When bottom is golden brown and cheese has melted, (very) carefully flip over the entire quesadilla and allow the remaining side to cook until golden brown.
  • Transfer quesadilla from skillet to cutting board and allow 1-2 minutes to cool before cutting. Garnish with fresh chopped thyme or rosemary, if desired.
