6 Best Mediterranean Diet Breakfast Recipes

Mediterranean Breakfast Burrata Platter

This burrata breakfast is plant-based and incorporates some satisfyingly healthy vegetables like butternut squash and microgreens. You'll also see other elements of the Mediterranean diet represented, like whole grain bread for a fiber boost, as well as olive oil and pumpkin seeds for healthy fats.

Mediterranean Tofu Breakfast Scramble

Eggs are still acceptable on the Mediterranean diet, but as mentioned earlier, any animal proteins are often consumed in moderation and far more infrequently than something like the standard American diet.

Mediterranean Breakfast Tacos

This Mediterranean diet breakfast recipe features some staples like cucumber, tomato, hummus, and feta cheese, so you'll be getting a boost of fiber, protein, and plenty of flavor.

Mediterranean Strata

A strata is essentially a layered casserole, which means there are always plenty of opportunities to pack in the flavor. This particular Mediterranean-inspired dish is a bit more fattening and higher in refined carbs than most of the recipes on this list, but it still uses some of the staple ingredients enjoyed in that part of the world. 

Mediterranean Breakfast Burrito

A classic breakfast burrito usually contains ingredients like eggs, bacon or sausage, cheddar cheese, and beans. With this Mediterranean-style burrito, you'll get the same comfort that a burrito can bring, but with a healthier twist.

Healthy Breakfast Casserole

Casseroles may be one of the easiest meals you can make in the morning. All you have to do is grab your ingredients, throw them together in the dish, bake, and continue getting ready to start your day while it cooks.

Sheet-Pan Shrimp Fajitas

These come together faster than ever, using quick-cooking shrimp and veggies all on one sheet pan so you can focus on family rather than cleanup.
