Breakfast Skillet
Wish healthy breakfast recipes could be speedier? Your wish is our command. These quick breakfast recipes come together in half an hour or (much!) less and feature classic healthy breakfast ideas such as oatmeal, smoothies, egg sandwiches, and more.

Zucchini and Tomato Frittata

Low on ingredients (just five not counting pantry staples!) yet high in flavor and nutrition—this is one healthy breakfast recipe you'll look forward to making again and again. We can't decide what we love most: the tender caramelized zucchini, the crunchy walnuts, or the ooey-gooey mozzarella bites.

Ginger-Berry Smoothie Bowl

Shh...it will be our secret that the berries in this vibrant smoothie bowl are disguising the beet that's blended in, too. The vegetable's touch of earthiness makes this 281-calorie bowl something you'll crave morning after morning.

Breakfast Salad

Bagel croutons, crumbled bacon, and an everything bagel-seasoned Greek yogurt dressing take this salad from supper starter to something you’d serve before noon. For more protein, put an egg on it!

Bacon-Pea-Swiss Scramble

Tomatoes, peas, and fresh parsley are the perfect garden-fresh complements to richer ingredients like bacon, eggs, and cheese. Pair this 194-calorie entree with an English muffin or slice of toast for a dose of carbs.

Blackberry-Ginger Overnight Bulgur

Itching to sleep in? Stir together bulgur, yogurt, fresh berries, and a couple other flavor-boosters and allow to chill overnight. All that's left to do is catch some shuteye, wake up, and dig in.

Greens-and-Bacon Omelet Wraps

No time to sit down to an omelet breakfast? Transform it into a speedy wrap and take it with you! Turkey bacon and low-fat cottage cheese give these eggy wraps filling protein without the fat.

Sweet Honey-Ginger Beet and Mango Smoothies

Tofu and frozen mango cubes make these fruit and veggie smoothies uber-creamy and irresistible. Make a big batch and store in the refrigerator for up to three days for a fast-fix morning meal you can enjoy on the go.

Avocado and Asparagus Egg Sandwiches

This 25-minute, protein-packed sandwich recipe bears a strong likeness to a breakfast BLT—but replace lettuce with stalks of tender asparagus and add a schmear of citrusy avocado across the bread. 

Strawberries and Cream Pancakes

Here’s proof that not all pancake recipes lead to a carb coma! Whole grains, chia seeds, and plenty of fruit fruit makes these flapjacks filling and figure-friendly all at once.

Florentine Eggs Benedict

Skip the stove and cook this entire diner-inspired breakfast in your microwave--yes, even the poached egg and hollandaise! Stack on extra spinach and tomato to balance out the richness of the yolk and creamy sauce.

Smoked Salmon Breakfast Wraps

Who says lox is only for bagels? Spread light cream cheese on tortillas, then layer with smoked salmon and thinly sliced zucchini for a completely portable breakfast that comes together in just 20 minutes.

Berry-Banana Smoothie Bowls

A blender is the MVP that makes it possible to serve Instagram-worthy smoothie bowls in your own kitchen. Toss bananas, cherries, berries, then top with fiber-rich sidekicks like chia seeds and almonds to crank up the satisfaction level.

Filled Egg White Omelet

Customizability for the win! High-protein, low-cholesterol egg whites enclose your choice of healthy fillings: We provide options for meats, cheeses, veggies, and toppers. In 15 minutes, your dream omelet is plated and ready.

Smoked Salmon and Roasted Red Pepper Frittata

It’s tough to believe that with all this frittata has going on (cheese, piles of fresh greens, sweet peppers, smoked salmon) that each serving is only 141 calories. It’s true! Enjoy a protein-rich wedge with a piece of fruit for a skinny yet satisfying start to the day.

Toasted Oat Muesli

Flecked with banana chips, almonds, and protein-rich flaxseed, this crunchy cereal isn't your ordinary bagged muesli. Even better? It's ready start-to-finish in 25 minutes.

Wilted Greens and Eggs

Craving a savory breakfast? Try this superfood-packed kale and egg bowl that also includes health food icons like olive oil and cider vinegar. For more fiber, toast a slice of wheat instead of white bread.

Hearty Breakfast Tacos

Start your day with a breakfast fiesta. These low-cal crunchy tacos are stuffed with protein-rich eggs, cheese, and beans, plus salsa and green pepper for fresh contrast. Using reduced-sodium black beans keeps the salt content down.

Breakfast Skillet

Think you don't have time to make a tasty skillet recipe for breakfast? Think again! This low-cal, super customizable skillet comes together in just half an hour—and if you have leftover chopped meat and veggies in the fridge, all the better.
