This is one of the few recipes that has remained a constant through Noah’s every changing food preferences. I make these at the beginning of the week and pull them out of the refrigerator as needed for a quick meal. They warm up nicely in a toaster oven in just a few minutes. They also make a great “on-the-go” breakfast for adults!
