Print Recipe


  • 4 whole wheat tortillas or wraps
  • 2 cups turkey breast
  • 1/2 cup cranberry sauce
  • 2 cup shredded cheese I used Cheddar, Asiago, and pepperjack!
  • 1/4 cup fresh sage chopped


  • Spray a large skillet with olive oil and heat over medium heat.
  • Place the first wrap in the bottom of the skillet and top with 1/4 cup cheese, 1/2 cup turkey, 1/4 cup cranberry sauce, 1/8 cup sage, another 1/4 cup cheese, and the second wrap. Grill for about 5 minutes on each side, or until melty and delicious.
  • Take off the heat and cut into quarters to serve. Repeat with other ingredients to make a second quesadilla.


Becky's Tips:

  • Flipping the tortilla can be a little tricky. To avoid spills, use a spatula to slide the quesadilla onto a small plate. Cover with another plate; flip; remove the top plate and slide it all back into the skillet.
  • Don't overload the wraps with food. Pay attention to the quantities listed in the recipe to avoid soggy, leaking quesadillas.
  • The sage leaves can be chopped to spread the flavor throughout. You can also use dried sage.
  • If you're repurposing cheese from Thanksgiving appetizers, you can use thinly sliced or cubed cheese in the quesadillas--no need to shred it.
