Southwestern Ham and Cheese Quinoa Bites

We are in bite size mode here at The Slow Roasted Italian!  Our ‘Mini Me’ Slow Roaster (our munchkin) is going through a super picky phase.  Unless its a dessert with sprinkles it needs to be bite sized to be a favorite.  Luckily, we have come up with some fantastic healthy combinations that she is just devouring.  Southwestern Ham and Cheese Quinoa Bites are fabulous for the whole family and something that Munchkin willingly devours!

Bite sized, healthy and scrumptious!  Triple point score.  In our house with 2 picky eaters it is challenging to come up with something healthy that everyone loves.  This one was a winner. Great southwestern flavors with some diced jalapeno for a great flavor.  Ham and cheese is always a winning combination, mix in zucchini, egg whites and quinoa and you have a perfect bite sized meal!

These freeze great.  I store them in a gallon resealable bag.  Take them out and Spritz them with water and either microwave them until heated or defrost and pop them in a 350°F oven for about 10 minutes.

Dinner’s Ready!
