I anticipate Thanksgiving leftovers in your future. You should make a Thanksgiving Leftovers Quesadilla!
Thanksgiving is so close I can TASTE it. Probably because I’m a food blogger and have been testing recipes since last summer. But still, it’s close! The family, the fun, the FOOD. It’s right around the corner. Thanksgiving dinner is great, but some of my favorite eats have always happened the day after. THE LEFTOVERS.
No Thanksgiving meal is complete without turkey. Don’t forget the cranberry sauce (you can find my favorite recipe HERE). And definitely don’t forget all the cozy spices, especially sage. They all fit. They all go together. Why not make them into a quesadilla??! Add some cheese and we are in business. The business of making the day after Thanksgiving just as delicious as the actual day. MMMM.
I know that after I have all that family in town, slave in the kitchen for hours if not days prior to the big event (well with my kitchen habits, its usually more like hours), and clean up from all the festivites…I’m in no mood to cook again the following day. That’s why this is so easy. Slap all of the ingredients together, set it on the stovetop, and let the melty goodness happen. These flavors were meant to be.
