These little bites are a crowd-pleaser for social events, but we also like to make a big batch and freeze them to take to work during the week. They reheat in 20 to 40 seconds in the microwave. Very versatile!

I made this and it was good but not great. Went by the recipe to a T and buying the ingredients in the recipe. Has the perfect buffalo sauce flavor! Read More

I've made many quinoa recipes and this by far is my families favorite. These little nuggets blew our minds! The only thing I changed was I subbed goat cheese for cream cheese because it was what I had. I will make these again very soon. Thanks for sharing:-) Read More

Wow! These are fabulous! I made this recipe pretty much exactly as written except that I formed balls with the mixture and baked them on a half-sheet pan with a Silpat. They held together well and boy do they disappear fast! Read More

I didn't make any changes but it I think next time I would use 2 eggs instead of 1 egg and 1 egg white and then double the batch. Everyone wanted more! I will definitely make this again! Read More

Tasty with room for variation. I only substituted about 1-2 tsp of Sriracha for preference and to keep it mild for the kids. The ingredients came together well not stiff and dry not too runny to just drop spoonfuls onto a silpat over the cookie sheet. They were done in 21 minutes moist on the inside with crunchy edges and bottoms. Will make again for sure as it s such an easy way to use up extra quinoa. If you don t have all parts ready to go (cooked quinoa shredded or chopped cooked chicken) then this will take more time - roughly the 18-20 min for quinoa. Read More
