This delicious recipe comes together quickly in the rice cooker with minimal effort! 🐰How are you celebrating the Year of the Rabbit?

For an untraditional yet equally delicious take, she used @grimmsfoods Lean Turkey Mini Peps and Thick Sliced Centre Cut Bacon (no sugar added) instead of Chinese cured sausage and ham.
