Mini Ham & Cheese Quinoa Cups

quinoa quiche bites
I found these little guys on Iowa Girl Eats and fell in love. They are just so cute...and sounded yummy and good for you at the same time. I left the ham out when I made mine this time, but I'm sure the salty ham is a nice addition to the flavors in the little quiches. These have been great to have on hand for breakfast for me, just heat some up and I'm ready to go! Plus, as she mentions, you could try any variety of ingredient combinations!

Makes 28 mini cups
2 cups cooked quinoa (about 3/4 cup uncooked)
2 eggs
2 egg whites
1 cup zucchini, shredded
1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1/2 cup diced ham (I left out this time)
1/4 cup parsley, chopped
2 Tablespoons parmesan cheese
2 green onions, sliced
salt & pepper

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and mix to combine. Liberally spray a mini muffin tin with non-stick spray and spoon mixture to the top of each cup. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until the edges of the cups are golden brown. Let cool for at least 5 minutes before removing from the mini muffin tin.
