“I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Shady Brook Farms. I received complimentary products to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.”

Now that back to school season is in full swing, weeknight dinners need to be something that doesn’t have me spending the whole night in the kitchen. Homework, sports, appointments, dinner, chores and church all need to fit into our new school schedule. I like to cook, but I don’t like to spend a lot of time on meal prep or cleaning, I’d rather spend time with the family!

Turkey Broccoli Alfredo Quesadillas has all the right stuff I can feel good about serving to my family. Shady Brook Farms turkey breast, whole grain tortillas, steamed broccoli and Alfredo sauce all rolled into one neat package! Well, not quite rolled but you’ll get the picture!

Turkey Broccoli Quesadillas. Use Shady Brook Turkey Breast for easy weeknight meals.

It’s become a new Sunday evening tradition to prep ahead as many meals as possible for the upcoming week. I plan next weeks meals on Friday, shop for any ingredients needed on Saturday and cook the meat I need on Sunday. The Shady Brook Farms bone-in turkey breast, went in the oven right after church. It was cooked, cooled and picked from the bone to start the meal prep after supper in just under 3 hours. I just had to set it and forget about it! When you “pick” the turkey don’t forget to ditch the skin, you won’t need it and it already did it’s job while cooking.Shady Brook Turkey Breast

I am hooked on this Shady Brook Farms turkey. Their turkeys are raised without growth-promoting antibiotics. (Nice!) They offer a wide variety of products that include ground turkey, sausage, tenderloins, burgers and more. Turkey tastes best  and is super tender when it is cooked SLOW! I put the bone in turkey breast (yes bones give the meat flavor) in the oven and when the internal temperature reached 165 degrees it was done! Almost like magic. Oh yeah it has one of those cute pop up timers, too. But always use your meat thermometer to check internal temperature to be safe!

Anyhow, enough talking turkey, let’s talk quesadillas. Remember I said you only need a few ingredients and wham bam this meal is on the table in less than 30 minutes. If you want to get technical it’s really less than 20 minutes! Win Win! You could probably get it down to 10 minutes if you used jarred Alfredo sauce, but I made my own, because it’s cheaper and tastes better than anything in a jar. (If I am pressed for time, I am buying a jar, just saying!)

Enough of my ramblings let’s get down to what you actually came here for the Turkey Broccoli Alfredo Quesadillas recipe!

Turkey Broccoli Alfredo Quesadillas are an easy weeknight dinner in a flash!
