    I have a similar Jag recipe from my grandmother except it is steamed on top of the stove....I might just try backing it the next time!!!! ( It tries to stick and scorch unless watched closely on the stovetop). - 2/13/13

    Completely simple to make and tastes DELICIOUS! Very filling, too. I chopped the kale, linguica, and onion in my food processor so everything was an even texture. This is one I will make over and over again. A truly crave-able taste! - 11/1/09
