  • 2 flour tortillas
  • 1/2 to 1 cup shredded Swiss cheese
  • 1/2 cup shredded Turkey
  • 1/4 c. cranberry sauce
  • 1 T. butter
  • chopped parsley for garnish


  • Sprinkle grated Swiss cheese all over one side of a tortilla.
  • Add turkey. I pulled it apart, kind of shredding it, with my fingers.
  • Then add another layer of cheese.
  • Next spread cranberry sauce over those layers.
  • Sprinkle another layer of cheese.
  • Put the other tortilla on top of the whole thing. Melt butter in a skillet,over medium heat. As soon as the butter is melted add the quesadilla. I like to cover my skillet with a lid because it helps warm the whole quesadilla. Let fry until golden brown. Flip, cover with a lid, and let the other side get brown.It should take just a few minutes
  • Remove quesadilla to a cutting board. Allow to rest for a minute or two. Cut into wedges.
  • I sprinkled my quesadillas with a little chopped parsley.
