Turkey, Brie and Cranberry Quesadillas.
I’m still in a food coma, probably wrapped up in a massive afghan floating on a mashed potato cloud. If you’re anything like me, you can’t wait until you can smother your leftover turkey, stuffing and potatoes with more gravy and eat your 14th slice of pumpkin pie with fresh whipped cream.
But just in case you’re not like me, and you got enough of the traditional Thanksgiving meal yesterday, here is a nifty quesadilla you can throw together in about 10 minutes.
Turkey, Brie & Cranberry Quesadilla
2 whole wheat tortillas
3 ounces turkey, shredded
2 tablespoons cranberry sauce
1 ounce of brie cheese, chopped
Preheat pan or griddle on medium-low heat. Lay one tortilla flat, top with half of the cheese, and all of the turkey and cranberry sauce. Top with remaining cheese and tortilla. Make sure cheese is on both sides of the tortilla to act as “glue.” Lay in skillet and toast for 3-4 minutes per side, or until golden brown.
Plain and simple, no? I may have also thrown some stuffing in there. Because frankly, I just can’t help myself.
And if that doesn’t float your boat, here are a few other recipes where you can simply substitute turkey:
What are you plans for Thanksgiving leftovers? My only real plan is for them to end up in my stomach. I’m not concerned about the vehicle getting them there.

Love that quesadilla idea! I can only eat Turkey day dinner so many times, so this is perfect!
Hope you had a great thanksgiving!
Yum yum! I made a wrap with a Laughing Cow, turkey and cranberry sauce last night. It was glorious!
what a great alternative to a reg turkey sandwich!!
Fruit and cheese? Classic combo!!!! Looks good, but I can’t say that I’m tired yet of Thanksgiving food….maybe tomorrow?

great idea for leftovers! too bad we have a late thanksgiving dinner and i am still full this morning:-)
I can’t wait for leftovers today! I hope you had a great Thanksgiving Jessica!
Oh wow that is such a great idea. I’m going to have to try it, who wants to eat boring turkey sandwiches?
This is definitely more exciting than the turkey and stuffing sandwiches I had planned to make by the dozen!
You did it. You made me hungry again. At about 4 am, I thought it would never happen, but this picture with melted brie has me reaching for whatever cheese I can find.
These quesadillas look great. I am ready for round two of Thanksgiving today :)
Great idea! This looks fabulous.
so jealous of all americans with leftover turkey this weekend!
I’m not always too big on regular quesadillas but these ones sound so much more interesting! I don’t think i could ever get tired of turkey!
Looks great! I have leftover turkey for lunch today :)
I plan on adding some cranberry sauce to my oatmeal and broiling the leftover cornbread to put on my salad (with turkey on top)!
Quesadilla’s are a great idea!
That sounds delicious!
Yum! Unfortunately I have no leftovers since we split the day at the husband’s family and my family. So wishing I had a giant plate of stuffing and gravy right now!
Good thing I’m off from work…so I can make some…
Hope you guys had a great Thanksgiving. I brought a little leftover turkey home for the man, not sure what I’m going to do with it yet. The quesadilla is a great idea, but I’m sure he’ll opt for the traditional sandwich
I’m planning on living off of leftovers for the next few days!! :)
I love the unique take on leftovers!
I may have to try this today, sans turkey. :)
Ohh, anything with brie in it..I’m in!
Yes Yes YES! I have all of the ingredients except for the tortillas. I am making it anyways! :-P
Perfect way to use up leftovers!! Looks delicious!
I’m a fan of anything including brie.
Thanks for this idea. Brilliant! I am all about “filling up” the quesadilla with all leftovers idea. :)
this sounds amazing, and the perfect way to use up leftovers! and let’s get serious…anything doused in brie is going to be good. always. forever. amen.
What a perfect way to mishmash some leftovers together! Because let’s admit it, some flavors just taste better melted together :)
this looks DELICIOUS
I have soooo many leftovers…thanks for the recipe ideas! I think this quesadilla will hit the spot in a few days, when I’m tired of the traditional Thanksgiving meal leftovers :) I also want to make your mashed potato pancakes…they looked awesome!
I hope you try! They are so good.
this looks very lovely..i am going to make some tomorrow. thanks for sharing this.
these look great!
scott has been going to town on the turkey..there will be no leftovers I after tonite I dont think! haha!
I had to leave all the leftovers at my mom’s…I was so sad! My mom got me this bag of sweet potato chips at an organic food store in Austin…they’re smothered in cinnamon and sugar–you should look for them! You’d love them!
We only have leftovers at my mom’s too. But I’ve already been over there eating them! And those chips sound AMAZING.
What a great idea! Although, like you, finding a way to finish leftovers is typically NOT a problem. This morning I basically just had the same meal as yesterday — so what if it was 8am?!
Totally acceptable. :)

I love this idea! I will be trying this asap ;)
I would love one of those.
Turkey and cranberry sauce are the only Thanksgiving foods I can never get enough of (and really, who can ever have enough cheese?). Def need to try this…
I loooove quesadillas. My mom actually used to make them for breakfast :D
Oh wow! That quesadilla looks AMAING! We’re lovin’ turkey + cranberry sauce sandwiches. YUMMMM
What a unique twist!! I may just make this for the husband tomorrow for leftover lunch :)
Such a great idea! Love leftovers!
An important leftover for me is the turkey carcass and undesirables. They make a great stock when boiled with water, wine, carrots, onion, celery, peppercorns and whatever else I think might be interesting. Cold season is upon us. I heart chicken soup.
This looks awesome! Can you believe that I’ve never before tried brie? And yet I know that once I do, I’ll love it. This recipe gives me good reason to pick some up. :D
You MUST try it!
That looks amazing!!!
mmmm what a great idea!!! I bet it was sooo amazing!! I love turkey and cranberry club sandwiches!!

I am sure you have seen this before in regards to bacon recipes, but I thought I’d share with you in case you hadn’t…It’s for a bacon loaf….
I did see this. Unreal!
I love making quesadillas with turkey leftovers! They are one of my favorite leftover meals. I will have to try your version soon.
… a little late on this, but since you asked(!)-
Carcasses are in the freezer- waiting to be transformed into gumbo:).
Wow! This looks delicious!
