Make it Monday: Quinoa Cups

This week's "Make It Monday" recipe is adapted from Iowa Girl Eats. This breakfast treat is so yummy, that my family has me make variations of this every week. These little cups are light and tasty and paired with a banana are the perfect quick breakfast treat.


Mini Turkey & Cheese Quinoa 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 ground turkey sausage
1/4 cup cilantro, 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.

Once cooled, store in a tupperware in the fridge. Reheat the cups for 20 seconds or eat them cold.

For variations, I have swapped the cilantro for parsley or basil. The zucchini can be swapped for yellow squash, mushrooms, etc., and you can try out many different cheeses like swiss, gouda or mozzarella, and the turkey can be exchanged for ham or bacon.

What is your favorite quick fix breakfast?
