Cheesy Quinoa and Ham Bites

These are amazing!! So yummy, and all you need in one little bite! Protein, starch, dairy, and veggie! Definitely make these. They are a big hit at my house!!

Cheesy Qunioa and Ham Bites 
from Mel's Kitchen Cafe

3 cups cooked quinoa, chilled or at room temperature (I cook my quinoa in chicken broth.)
2 eggs, lightly beaten
8 ounces deli ham, chopped fine (about 1 1/2 cups)
1-2 cups finely chopped steamed broccoli
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 cup finely shredded Parmesan cheese
2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

In a large bowl, combine all ingredients, except cheeses, until combined. Stir in the cheese until well-distributed.

Lightly grease two mini muffin cup tins.  (My recipe made 48 mini muffins.) If you don't have two tins, you can do two batches. Scoop the quinoa mixture into the tins, filling the cups all the way to the top and lightly pressing to pack the mixture a bit. Bake for 15-18 minutes, until golden on top. Remove from the tin and repeat with the remaining mixture if needed. Serve warm or at room temperature.
