We found these just a bit boring, even with added oregano. A splash of salsa over the top did the trick. Glad to have the leftovers for a quick, healthy, high protein breakfast. I wonder how they will hold up in a lunch-to-go.
I used 1 cup of leftover quinoa, cooked broccoli instead of peas and 1/2 c peccorino romano cheese, 1/4 c cheddar to cut down on fat. If you use that combo, I'd cut out the salt. No sticking at all. Delicious.
As a previous commenter noted, this recipe works with whatever veg one has on hand. I used grated carrot, half an orange bell pepper diced, a small handful of fresh french green beans sliced thin, and a small clove of garlic. Added a bit of ground cumin as well. Quinoa is high in protein, as is the cottage cheese
Easy, I didn't use carrots or green onions, because I didn't have them. I had broccoli and red onions, so I chopped them up and threw them in. Y ou can use any veggie really. Also put in some minced garlic. These are tasty. My only complaint is they stick to the tins. I had to run a knife around them but they were stuck to the bottom. Maybe next time I will use foil baking cups.
Thanks for your review.
