I wonder would the filling taste good cold? It sounds like it might make a good sandwich spread :-) Thanks for sharing, and good luck on the contest!

No need to apologize--I'm impressed you went and tried it! I will definitely put this on the list to try. I also do a relatively easy meal where I fill crescent roll dough with a chicken, cream cheese, and spinach filling, and I think your filling could easily substitute there. The thing I find neatest about things like Instructables is we share knowledge, and build on it, and come out with more and more awesome things just by sharing!
