Recipe: Thanksgiving Quesadillas


Saturday morning, Jennifer Michaud, a Weight Watchers ambassador dropped by WBTV to share her twist on Thanksgiving leftovers.

Thanksgiving Quesadillas (Prep 10 min./ Cook 12 min./ Serves 4)


  • 8 small corn tortillas
  • 1 c shredded reduced-fat Cheddar cheese
  • 4 oz. cooked turkey breast without skin, shredded
  • ¼ c cranberry sauce (leftover or canned)
  • ½ c stuffing


Place 4 tortillas on a flat surface; sprinkle each with 1/3 cup cheese. Top each with 1 oz. turkey and 1 tbsp cranberry sauce; crumble 2 tbsp stuffing on top. Cover each with another tortilla; press down firmly.

Coat a large nonstick skillet with nonstick spray; heat over medium-high heat. Carefully place 2 quesadillas on skillet; cook until browned on bottom, about 3 minutes. Flip quesadillas; cook until browned on second side, about 3 minutes more.

Remove from pan, transfer to a plate, and cover to keep warm. Repeat with remaining quesadillas.

Cut each quesadilla into 4 wedges.
