Overview

Whether you're on the road, packing lunchboxes for the day, or hosting a party, it's important to include something yummy and healthy for the kids. And let's face it: quinoa isn't exactly a kid-favorite. But thanks to the cheesy filling and the way these egg bites crisp up in the oven, you might have a new go-to recipe on your hands for any occasion.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups cooked quinoa
  • 2 cups cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 2 cups of cooked veggies of your choice
  • 2 Nellie's Free Range Eggs
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350F.
  • Spray a mini muffin pan with cooking spray.
  • In a deep bowl, mix all ingredients until well combined.
  • Divide the mixture evenly in the mini muffin pan. Make sure you press down to pack it in firmly.
  • Bake mini muffins for 15-20 minutes until golden brown and crispy. Note: every oven is different. It took about 20 minutes for my quinoa bites to get brown and crispy. Enjoy!

Couldn’t make —no quinoa. Is there a substitute?
