i am 3 weeks post-op and just a few days ago came across something that is a godsend. go to betty crocker's website and put in "impossible pies". they have over 100 recipes. to make these pies, everything goes in the blender. bisquick is added to make a soft crust and helps to "marry" the ingredients. simply pour into a greased pie plate and bake. they have main dish pies and dessert pies. some won't work for nissan patients as they have ground beef, but many will. egg based and very filling. raviolli pie, lasagne pie, spinich pie, asparagus pie, pumpkin pie, apple, etc. prep is only 5 min and all you need is a blender! hope this helps a lot of you. i know it has me.
