  • ½ cup shredded Turkey

  • Sprinkle grated Swiss cheese all over one side of a tortilla.
  • Add shredded turkey
  • 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. Let fry until golden brown. Flip, cover with a lid and let the other side get brown. It should take just a few minutes.
