These may just be my new favorite thing to have in the house for a quick breakfast or snack. Although similar to the egg muffins and mini quiches I have posted in the past, these little gems have even more protein and staying powder since we are adding quinoa to the mix. Toss in whatever veggies and cheese you have at home, stir together, and bake for 30 minutes. Incredibly easy and delish.
