Ready for a delicious and FAST throw-together lunch or dinner recipe?

It’s a great way to enjoy holiday leftovers … and it’s a little lighter than a full-on turkey sandwich!

TIP: If you have some leftover fresh sage, chop up 1-2 leaves and sprinkle over the tortillas before you fold them over (yum!).

Turkey & Cranberry Quesadillas
(serves 1)

  • 2 whole grain tortillas
  • 2 Tbsp cranberry sauce
  • ½ cup (3-4 oz/85-115 g) shredded or chopped cooked turkey
  • 2 Tbsp goat cheese crumbles
  • (optional) 1-2 dashes of hot sauce

Preheat your oven to 425ºF/220ºC or turn on your toaster oven.

Lay tortillas on a sheet pan that has been sprayed with nonstick spray, or on a foil-lined toaster oven pan.

Spread the cranberry sauce over half of each tortilla, and then top with turkey and goat cheese. Fold over the tortilla to form a half-circle.

In the oven: Bake for about 5 minutes on each side, then flip and bake for 5 to 7 minutes more until golden brown.

In the toaster oven: Place in the toaster oven and toast until the cheese melts, about 10-12 minutes.

Remove from the oven and serve with a dash of hot sauce if desired.

I hope you love it!
