Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup uncooked quinoa
  • 4 eggs (or combination of whole eggs and whites)
  • 1 cup sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup ham
  • 1 cup spinach
  • 2 tablespoons parmesan cheese
  • sea salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste

Directions

Prep: 1. Preheat oven to 350 and grease a muffin tin well. 2. Rinse quinoa in a fine-mesh strainer under running water. Drain. Add water (or use broth) and quinoa to saucepan and bring to a boil. Lower heat, cover and cook 12-15 minutes. Remove from heat and let stand covered for 5 minutes. 3. While quinoa cooks, grate cheese, dice ham, and chop spinach. Make: 1. Once quinoa is cooked combine all ingredients in a large bowl and mix to combine. 2. Pour into prepared muffin tin and bake for 25-30 minutes. Let cool for at least 5 minutes before removing from the muffin tin.

Notes

These also freeze extremely well! Make sure to cool them completely and then freeze on a baking sheet for a few hours before transferring them to a freezer bag. To reheat, pop them in the microwave for 20-40 seconds. It's best to reheat them one at a time if you can. These are a great healthy breakfast!
