Ham & Cheese Quinoa Cups

I have another wonderful quinoa recipe thanks to the Queen of Quinoa Recommendations, by way of the IowaGirlEats.Com.

This is one of my favorite quinoa creations yet.  It doesn't hurt that it involves cheese, ham, and herbs.  These are a few of my favorite things!

They are basically mini quiche with even more protein and nutrients.  Winner, winner, ham dinner breakfast.  At least, I ate it for breakfast. 

How much of a treat is a hot breakfast?  I don't think I'd had a hot breakfast during the work week since high school, until I was introduced to these little delights.  Now I'm popping that shit in the microwave and having hot breakfasts like I'm the Queen of England.  Or at least the Queen of English Muffins.
I halved the recipe and used a regular sized muffin tin and it made 12 quinoa cups.  I don't know what that makes the nutritional value per cup, but I know that they were so good that 2 each morning made me feel happy and satisfied and not weighted down like most hot breakfasts do.
I'm putting a serious dent in my quinoa stash with all of these amazing recipes.  Before I know I will have to buy another 5 pound bag from Costco and start scouring for more recipes to try!
