You can throw it together in minutes because you did most of the work already back when you did your canning.
It’s extremely calorie-wise, too. Makes 4 generous 250 g / 1/2 lb portions for just 96 calories a portion.
You will need a 2 litre (2 US quart) casserole dish.
The recipe is easily doubled or tripled to feed a crowd (just use a larger baking dish accordingly.)
(To be clear, this is a “cooking with canning you have already done” recipe. This is not a recipe for canning.)
