Turkey Quesadillas with Brie and Cranberry Sauce

Got leftovers?

This is a delicious way to use left over turkey and cranberry sauce from your Thanksgiving feast. This recipe serves one, but you can easily double the recipe and make several of these for the whole family. It can also be used as an appetizer, but I'd probably use small tortillas so that the wedges are finger food sized.

Turkey Quesadillas with Brie and Cranberry Sauce

1/2 teaspoon butter or oil
1 large flour tortilla
1/2 cup chopped cooked turkey
2 oz. brie, cut into chunks
1 1/2 tablespoons cranberry sauce

Heat butter or oil in a large skillet over medium high heat until melted and hot.

Lay tortilla in skillet and arrange the turkey, brie and cranberry sauce evenly on one side of the tortilla. Carefully fold over the empty side of tortilla onto the filling and cook until tortilla starts to brown, about 2-3 minutes. Flip tortilla over and cook until other side is brown, about 2-3 minutes more.

Remove from skillet and cut into wedges.

Serves 1


  1. Man, you are the best cook! If you ever decide to come for a trip to Canada, let me know Christine!!! lol

    I hope your Thanksgiving feast was wonderful!


  2. Hmm, not a fan of cranberry sauce. We're stir frying some of our leftover turkey with some onions, squash and broccoli.
    You have the most awesome recipes!

  3. YUM! I'm not a brie or cranberry sauce fan (yes, I am a peasant when it comes to food :) fan, but there are so many variations of this! Thank you Christine!

  4. That is such a good idea. I eat leftovers for a whole week and usually I try to come up with something that can be mixed together.

  5. Lea, of course!!! And you let me know if you decide to come for a trip to NJ!!

    Brandy, that stir fry sounds great! Yum!

    orannia, I love using all kinds of leftovers to make quesadillas. If the food goes with cheese... you can make a quesadilla out of it! lol
