Chicken Cordon Bleu Quinoa Bites Recipe

It is officially my Spring Break now!  Which means a week of serious Spring cleaning, cooking like mad, and running has just begun!  See, I finally hit the 10 pounds lost mark this week and it rejuvenated my motivation to get rid of as much of these last 30ish pounds as I can before my dear friend Maryam’s wedding this May!

You know what doesn’t help you lose weight?  Hollandaise sauce.  I thought it would go perfectly with these bites…and it does….but you know how some things are just ruined when you figure out how they’re made?  I had never made a hollandaise sauce before.  I knew it wasn’t a healthy sauce, but did you know that the primary ingredient is butter?  I will most likely still order it at restaurants on occasion (I can’t give up the Egg & I’s Cambridge Skillet forever!), but I don’t think I’ll be making it at home anymore.

But the quinoa bites?  I’ll definitely be making them again.  I love that these little guys let me incorporate ham, chicken, and cheese, but still keep the calorie count pretty low.  And I love that I can have all of the flavors of chicken cordon bleu without having to flatten and stuff a chicken breast!

Now, I’m off to throw the 70 billionth load of laundry in the washer and cook corned beef and cabbage hash to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day appropriately.  😉

  1. can't wait to try these sometime! :D and thanks for the hollandaise tip--good thing I didn't like it the first time I had it at a restaurant!

    I SOOO want to make corned beef and cabbage. I may have to detour from my menu, go to the store, and get the ingredients and make it tomorrow if it's not served at the party we're going to tonight :O

    <3 ya!
    And GO YOU on weight loss!!!! I had a similar feeling today when I tried on all my shorts/capris and they all FIT! Last year they didn't!
  2. Thanks, Liesl! Being sick this week has helped the weight loss a lot...now hopefully I can keep it off! ;-)

    I hope you got some corned beef and cabbage this weekend!

    <3 you, too!
  3. Hey Becky! Finally figured out how to leave a message...switched computers;) Nice job again on the weight loss!! So proud of you! I like those Wasa crackers...I'll have to try your dip! xoxox Mar
  4. Thank you for posting the various quinoa bites recipes! I've been looking for a way to serve quinoa to someone who doesn't really like it. I made the cordon bleu today, and fully intend to modify the recipe for new variations.
  5. Hi Barb! I honestly don't remember the exact recipe I used for the hollandaise sauce, but I believe it was this recipe - http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/tyler-florence/hollandaise-sauce-recipe/index.html . If it wasn't wasn't that one, it was very similar! I hope you like them!
