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.

Have fun with it.  You can’t go wrong.

Saw your quesadilla recipe in a Good Housekeeping round up and it was perfect timing because I was just thinking of things to do with leftover Thanksgiving turkey - since Thanksgiving is right around the corner. This looks amazing!

Nice recipe, but the 20 trackers that you try to place on my computer are excessive to say the least. YOU are in control of the content here, if your host can't remove the trackers, find ANOTHER! 20 is ridiculous!

    Hey James, I'm sorry for the trouble. I put ads on my site because I do this as my full-time job. The cookie ads can be disabled by disabling cookies on your browser. Im not sure what you mean by trackers...other than the ads I don't have any type of tracker and I don't receive any of that type of information. The ads are just supplied by google. I do appreciate you stopping by and totally respect your opinion. Hope you have a great weekend.

I'm confused. In 1st quesadilla you used 1/2 c turkey or only 1/4 of the total 2 C, and the same with the cheese. So did you list more than enough in the recipe or did you get it wrong in the directions?

I am looking forward to making this recipe as part of my holiday leftover meal planning & sharing it w/my cooking friends, but I have a question. The amount of ingredients listed does not seem to match the directions for assembly. For example, 1/2 cup turkey per quesadilla would use 1 cup total, not 2 .. & 1/2 cup of the shredded cheese combo per tortilla would use 1 cup total, not 2. It appears this question has already been asked, but I do not see an answer Can you clarify pls. Thanks :-)
