Eggland's Best Eggs Recipes from Your Heart

I was challenged by Eggland's Best Eggs to come up with a couple of recipes for their "Recipes from Your Heart" event, a special event to mark February and American Heart Month. Eggland’s Best donated $25 to the American Heart Association on behalf of each of my recipes. That makes my heart happy. Here's what I was inspired to create with their great eggs...

Shelly's Loaded Egg Bites (aka Crustless Mini Quiches)

5 Eggland's Best Eggs, beaten
4 Green Onions, diced fine
2 Tablespoons Bacon Bits (or Crumbled Bacon)
1/2 cup Cheddar Cheese, shredded
1 teaspoon Ranch Dressing Powder Mix, dry
a few twists of Black Pepper

Preheat oven to 350. Mix all ingredients together.

Spoon into lightly greased (non-stick cooking spray works great for this) mini muffin tin. Bake for 30 minutes at 350. Let them cool a few moments they pull away and pop right out. Makes 24.

Great for lunch or dinner with a salad, soup or veggie side or as party hors d'oeuvres.

Another favorite dish using Eggland's Best Eggs are my Quinoa Burgers...

Shelly's Quinoa Burgers

2 cups Cooked Red Quinoa, cooled
2 Eggland's Best Eggs, beaten
2 Green Onions, finely chopped
1/4 cup Parmesan Cheese, grated
3 Tablespoons Multigrain Pancake Mix
1 Tablespoon Dried Chives
1 teaspoon Garlic Powder
a few twists of Black Pepper
Salt to taste
Canola or Olive Oil to saute

Cook dry quinoa in broth (1 cup quinoa to 2 cup chicken or mushroom broth, bring to boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer till no liquid remains, fluff with fork) and allow to cool. Basically the directions on most packages on quinoa. I just use broth versus water for taste.

Mix all the ingredients together. Using a 1/4 cup measure make 8 "burger patties." Place in pan and flatten slightly. I saute 4 at a time in a 10" non stick pan with a Tablespoon of oil on medium heat. Cook about 5 minutes on one side. Flip once and continue about 5 minutes on other side till golden brown and crispy. Leftovers keep in fridge for a few days. To reheat, nuke a minute then place under the broiler a few minutes to crisp back up.

Serve with Parmesan Yogurt Dip
3 oz. Greek Yogurt, plain
1 Tablespoon Parmesan Cheese, grated
1/2 teaspoon Oregano
Salt to taste

Mix till well blended.
