BLT Quinoa Egg Cups

1

This is my new favorite breakfast item! I found this recipe when I was looking for high protein breakfast foods to make for my marathon running husband. We tried them this morning before he ran 20 miles in preparation for a race he is running in September and they are delicious and so easy! I cooked the quinoa and fried the bacon the night before and it made them even quicker to put together for breakfast. Store leftovers in the refrigerator or freeze and reheat in the microwave for about 30

3/4 dry quinoa
1 1/2 c. chicken broth (or water)
2 eggs
3 egg whites
1 (10 oz.) package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
1 c. shredded cheddar cheese
8 thick slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
1/2 c. chopped tomatoes (1 roma tomato)
1 green onion, finely chopped
2 T. grated parmesan cheese
1 t. salt
1/2 t. black pepper
Combine quinoa and chicken broth in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to a simmer and cook until all the broth is absorbed and the quinoa is tender, about 15 minutes. Let cool slightly....
