3. Sfakianopita (Cheese Pie With Nuts And Honey)

Sfakianopita is a thin pancake-like pie infused with whey cheese. It sounds and looks plain, but the flavors in this thing are pretty amazing.

The pie is made with flour, water, olive oil, salt, and a grape-based alcohol called raki.

The dough is kneaded with a local cheese called myzithra to give its distinct flavor.

The dough is flattened and fried until golden and crispy, and then dressed with honey and nuts.

The combination creates a lovely sweet and salty flavor contrast. 

4. Greek Avocado Toast

Just one look, and you can already tell this is not your average toast!

Want to give your simple avocado toast a Greek flair? This is the recipe for you. 

Mediterranean cuisine is known for using fresh and colorful vegetables in each and every dish, and toast is no exception.

In this recipe, you’ll make avocado toast just the way you normally would, but with a few additions.

How do slices of cherry tomatoes and cucumber, chopped kalamata olives and dill, and crumbled feta sound? Delicious – that’s how!

Trust the Greeks to turn basic ingredients into epic dishes.

This simple recipe of eggs, potatoes, and feta will get you hooked on the first bite.

Yet, it’s so gorgeous and scrumptious, you’ll think it came straight right out of a restaurant!

6. Greek Sesame Bread Rings

Koulouri thessalonikis is a staple bread in Greek cooking.

It’s a basic recipe using flour, sugar, yeast, and olive oil, but what makes it unique is its ring-like appearance.

The bread ring is crispy on the outside, and soft on the inside.

It’s similar to American bagels, although the ring is narrower and the hole in the middle is bigger.

It’s also completely coated with sesame seeds for a nutty flavor and a nice crunch.

7. Ladenia (Flatbread with Tomatoes)

Ladenia, or Greek flatbread, is soft, fluffy, and a great vessel for fresh vegetables!

Top the bread with sliced fresh tomatoes and onions and drizzle with olive oil. It’s a simple breakfast, but the flavors are sublime.

The bread is made of flour, yeast, and water, and one bake, it looks and tastes like focaccia – crusty on the outside, and super soft on the inside.

While there’s no meat in the toppings, this pizza-like treat is still delicious in every bite.

Apart from the listed ingredients, you can also add capers and peppers for enhanced flavor.

8. Rizogalo (Greek Rice Pudding)

If you’re a fan of dessert for breakfast, this recipe is calling your name.

Greek rice pudding, or rizogalo, is a sweet and hearty treat that will satisfy your sugar craving.

The pudding, at its base, is made of slow-cooked rice and milk.

It’s thickened with egg yolks or cornstarch, resulting in a creamy, and custard-like delight.

A sprinkling of cinnamon gives it a nice, warming flavor, perfect for the cold weather. It’s also a great summer treat if you serve it chilled.

If you’re looking for a hearty and nutritious grab-and-go breakfast, these muffins have you covered.

Beaten eggs are mixed with tomatoes, onion, black olives, parsley, and feta cheese and baked into muffin tins. Cuteness and flavor overload, am I right?

That way, you can just reheat them whenever a craving strikes – which, once you’ve had a bite, will be frequently.
