Quinoa Breakfast Egg Mug

Egg mugs are a go to breakfast for me, especially if I am rushing in the morning. A couple of eggs, any leftover veggies in my fridge, and I can be out the door with a protein packed breakfast in just a couple of minutes. Normally I opt for eggs, veggies, and a touch of cheese but lately I have been tossing in some quinoa as well to keep me full longer. It is almost like a quicker version of these Quinoa Egg Muffins, which I absolutely love.

    This sounds great, thanks! Love your egg muffins! I’ve been adding 1/2 c. cooked quinoa to your sweet potato/spinach egg muffin “batter”, then about 1/2 tsp. shredded cheese sprinkled onto each muffin before baking. Yum, and just a bit more substantial than the original recipe.
