Ingredients

    4 eggs
    4 slices low fat cheese (cheddar or jack work well)
    3 cups water
    1.5 cups quinoa flakes
    1 pkg real bacon bits (or 85 grams of cooked bacon, chopped into small pieces)
    1 cup mushrooms, chopped
    1/2 medium onion, chopped
    1 clove garlic, minced
    2 tsp rosemary
    1 tsp thyme
    1 tsp oregano
    1 tsp black pepper
    half salt to taste

Tips

If you're not fond of quinoa, you could use a number of different grains in this dish. Oatmeal would work, as would polenta, bulgur, creamed wheat or rice or any other milled grain.

To save on calories & fat you can substitute turkey bacon, leave off the cheese, or use half egg whites or egg beaters in place of the full eggs.

Directions

Beat eggs in a small bowl and set aside.

Boil water and add quinoa flakes - they cook a lot like instant oatmeal, so stir until fluffy and water is evaporated and remove from heat. Stir in bacon bits and set aside.

In a skillet, brown onions, garlic, mushrooms & spices together. Turn off heat and add quinoa & bacon mixture - stir to combine. Slowly pour beaten eggs over top, stirring to combine well. Work quickly so that eggs will not cook from the heat of the dish. Make sure everything is well combined and then transfer to a greased baking dish.

Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Remove from oven, top with cheese slices and return to oven for an additional 10 minutes.

Enjoy!
