Info
This quesadilla the result of wanting to do something different with my Thanksgiving leftovers. When I first looked into quesadillas to learn what was appropriate, I found there really were no rules. I heated everything briefly in the microwave to get it to room temperature. The tortillas were brushed with a Tart Cranberry Dipping Sauce from an Aalton Brown recipe that I made to go with this years Turkey. Next came a layer of stuffing spread thin on top of the cranberry. This was followed by finely chopped dark meat, green beans and onions. For cheese I used some shredded mozzarella that I had left over, if I was buying cheese from scratch I’d try cheddar and Monterrey Jack. The outside of the tortillas were sprayed with olive oil and it was onto a medium low grill. The quesadillas were a wonderful change of pace and a great way to use some Thanksgiving leftovers.
