Few Americans eat pasta for breakfast, but this Greek-inspired recipe will win you over.

Using old-fashioned, stone-ground grits gives this Southern-style breakfast casserole a better texture and flavor than quick cooking grits.

8. Blueberry Baked Quinoa and Oatmeal

Either fresh or frozen blueberries will work for this healthy, gluten-free breakfast.
