Recipes like this are great to pre-measure in jars for easy meals. We especially like this as a warm, savory breakfast option...throw everything in a pressure cooker when you wake up and have breakfast ready after your shower or after a walk with the dog. See the video below to see how we prep our jars. Each jar will be enough food for two servings.
