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.
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.
