Cheesy Quinoa Patties

Can you believe that Christmas is less than a week away??
It seriously snuck up on me so fast, I hope you're not feeling as bombarded as I am!
So today for lunch I made quinoa burgers, and wanted to share my version. 
I originally got the idea for quinoa patties here, but I modified it quite a bit to suite my taste.
You will need:
  ✓  grated cheese of your choice (I used a cheddar & gruyere blend)
✓  cottage cheese
 ✓ 3 eggs
 ✓ grated carrot
 ✓flour, sugar, pepper, cumin, salt and garlic powder
 ✓ Cooked quinoa. I try to aim for 2 heaping cups, but this batch ended up being almost 3. I just start with 1 cup of uncooked quinoa and use all that it makes.
 Mix all of your ingredients together. It looks kinda funny, but trust me when I say it smells delicious.
 Then coat a frying pan with a few teaspoons of olive oil, or oil of your choice and cook on medium low heat for about 4 minutes each side.
The mixture can be sticky, so I just use a measuring cup or mixing spoon to create the patties.
 When they are done, you can eat them with a tzatziki sauce, with ketchup and chipotle, or my favorite, on a flat bun with some lettuce, tomato and Dijon mustard.
Enjoy, and Merry Christmas!
