Mini Broccoli Bacon Quinoa Quiches I first made a few weeks ago, I started thinking about making a tuna/cheese variation, for a healthier, more updated version of the white rice ones. So here's the result! My family also ate all of these in no time; I think they taste just as good, or quite possibly even a teeny bit better, if that's possible, reheated the next day for a quick & easy lunch. Here's my recipe for a large batch, enjoy!
Quinoa Tuna Cheese Muffins
6 cups cooked quinoa
5 cans tuna (6 oz. each), drained well
6 large eggs
1/4 cup dried minced onion (the dehydrated ones from the spice aisle)
2 teaspoons seasoning salt
1 - 2 cups sharp cheddar cheese (our family favorite, regular cheddar is fine too :)
Preheat oven to 350.
In a large bowl, stir all ingredients together & until evenly combined and mixed well.
Place mixture into well-greased mini-muffin tins; filling to the top, and bake for 15-20 minutes, or until starting to brown around the edges. Let cool 5-10 minutes in the pan before trying to remove. Enjoy!!
*I used a mini muffin pan, for a regular sized muffin tin cooking time will need to be increased by 5-10 minutes. They should start to brown on the edges & the middle will be bubbly when they are done.
I also wanted to with my "sweetheart" a happy 4th Birthday today too!! I love you, Momma :)
