Favorite Friday Recipe: mini ham, egg and cheese quinoa cups

Our first time eating quinoa and I can't imagine a better introduction than this recipe!  A nice healthy breakfast packed with lots of flavor and I love how portable they are as well.  It's a really versatile recipe as you can switch out different meats, vegetables and seasonings.  Bacon?  Is that you calling me?

Mini ham, egg and cheese quinoa cups

  • 2 cups cooked quinoa (about 3/4 cup uncooked)
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 shredded zucchini
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup chopped ham
  • 1/4 cup chopped parsley
  • 2 Tablespoons Parmesan cheese
  • 2 green sliced onions
  • salt & pepper

  • Combine all ingredients and mix well
  • Spray mini muffin tins with olive oil 
  • Spoon mixture in (you can fill them in all the way as these won't rise)
  • Bake for 15-20 min (I broiled them for about 2-3 min at the end)
  • Let cool a little before removing from tin and stuffing them in your mouth
  • Delicious!
