  1. Place all ingredients in order in a wide-mouth quart-size mason jar and shake contents gently to settle.
  2. Place new canning lid on top of jar. Using wide-mouth attachment for a FoodSaver, vacuum seal lid onto jar following instructions from your FoodSaver manual. (You can also insert an oxygen absorber before putting on lid if you'd like.)
  3. Remove vacuum attachment and put ring on. Tighten by hand, but don't over tighten.
  4. Label and date. Store in cool, dry location.

To cook:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.  Empty contents of jar (minus oxygen packet if present) into large casserole dish.  Add 5 cups hot water.  Cover and let sit for 10 minutes.  Bake, uncovered, for 20-25 minutes until bubbly. Remove from oven and serve.


This works as breakfast or dinner - you can even substitute in freeze-dried ham or freeze-dried bacon crumbles for different options.
