Why this recipe.

Prices are high and time is limited. This is an easy, cheap, and yummy recipe that is good for one or the whole family. If you are wanting to manage your time during the work week- meal-prepping the base ingredients for this recipe is a great option.

I personally like prepping this meal in wide-mouth mason jars. It saves some space in the fridge and makes it easy to throw some toppings on top and take the breakfast to go. So give it a try and let me know how you like it.
