Ham, Cheddar & Quinoa Mini Cups

Thanks to Pinterest I ran across a great foodie blog called Iowa Girl Eats. Tonight I tried her Mini Ham & Cheese Quinoa Cups and boy oh boy did they deliver. I devoured them. Addie, not so much. She fell out of her “picky eater” stage and dove right in to her “super picky eater” stage. I think I'll make her a cape…

You HAVE to try these. I am especially excited about the ones I made since I was able to use the green onions from our very own garden!

What You Need:
2 cups cooked quinoa
2 eggs
2 egg whites
1 cup zucchini, shredded
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup diced ham
1/4 parsley, chopped
4 green onions, sliced
salt & pepper to taste
(The original recipe calls for 2 tblsp. parmesan, but I forgot to put the parm in mine. Oops!)

What You Do:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cook quinoa as directed on package. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Spray your mini muffin pan with non-stick spray (or coat with olive oil). Spoon mixture into muffin cups (I use a small ice cream scoop that makes it soooo easy). Bake for 20-25 minutes or until edges are golden brown. Let cool for a few minutes, then enjoy!

Promise me you will try these.
