This post should be subtitled "Bedrest Cooking." I sat down to make it so I don't feel like I cheated too badly . . .
No picture for this one, because the picture on the site where I found the recipe does it way more justice!
I used storebought wholewheat crusts rather than making my own, so I am just including the filling recipe below. The original posting includes a crust recipe that sounds like I could even get over my fear of making pastry from scratch! (I also removed onion and substituted cilantro - the recipe below reflects the way I made it.)
This recipe includes mayo. I can officially say I have never before now cooked with mayo twice in one week.
We made two and both went in the freezer.
