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 have made these several times now with all sorts of alterations and as the recipe states. They are a family favorite for sure! If you want quick and easy, canned chicken works great for this recipe. Thanks for posting it! Read More

These were a hit with the family! I doubled the recipe for a family of 5 and used regular sized muffin pans. Thanks for sharing Arielle! 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

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
