Baked Quinoa-Egg in Maple Bacon Cups

I am a little obsessed with quinoa lately.  And I have to admit that I try to follow the quinoa trend right now.   But quinoa is soooooooo good for our health and that should be enough reason for me to do that.  Right? 
I made quinoa salad with sunny side-up egg on the previous post, and made Thai spicy quinoa-coconut croquettes another day, which I didn’t post it for an unforgivable reason – I ate them all before they could make it to my blog!

 Yeah, I knew, I ate like a pig!  

I promise I will try to make it and share with the world soon.

Today I decided to incorporate the quinoa with eggs filled in maple bacon cups for breakfast.   To be honest, I should have cooked the bacons just to crisp them first before filling in the egg mixture because they weren’t crisp enough as I had hope for.  So, I turned up the boiler and turn the egg cups upside down back to the muffin tins and put in the oven under the boiler for another 10 minutes to cook the bacon a little more, I didn’t take any picture of this step because it’s too embarrassing to show.    Dooohh! o_o

Oh boy, I was glad I did. The crispy maple bacon gave lots of flavor to the egg and quinoa. I even finished eating 2 of them before I finished taking photographs, and I was so stuffed!
