Stovetop Quinoa Breakfast Custard

2 large eggs, beaten
3 T maple syrup
1/2 t gr cinnamon
1/4 t salt (opt)
1 C milk
1 & 1/2 C cooked quinoa

Mix all.

My oven is busted so I ‘baked’ this in a large fry pan on the stovetop. I started by putting a pat of butter in the pan and heating it until lightly brown. Then I poured in the custard mixture.

I had it on medium heat without a lid for 6 minutes, no stirring, but I did move the pan around so the bubbling was happening in different places. Then I turned the heat down to low, covered with a lid, for another 3 minutes. Leave the lid on with heat turned off for another 3-6 minutes, until the center will only jiggle slightly when the pan handle is wiggled. As you can see, I got a firm enough set to quarter it and serve as whole pieces! Serves 4.
