I have been trying to write a post about these quinoa pizza patties for the last two weeks and having no luck. So I decided to stop trying to be clever and just tell you how much I really like this recipe. I really like this recipe.
I found this recipe in one of my first forays onto Pintrest. I just knew I was going to love it because it incorporates two of my favorite things quinoa and pepperoni. The original recipe was baked in a mini muffin pans and served as a snack. I made them into patties and served them as an entrée with pizza sauce and a salad.
Quinoa Pizza Patties
3/4 cup cooked quinoa
1/2 cup pepperoni minis
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
2 TBS grated parmesan cheese
4 TBS lightly beaten egg
1/2 tsp Italian seasoning
1/4 tsp onion powde
1/4 tsp garlic powder
Preheat a medium frying pan over medium high heat. Spray pan with non stick cooking spray. In a medium bowl, combine all the ingredients and mix well. Use a 1/4 cup measure, form 6 balls and place in the pan.Gently smash to form a patty. Cook, 3-4 minutes, on each side. Be careful when turning the patties so they don’t break apart. When the patties are done they should be golden brown and the cheese should hot and melted.
