      I stick to the basics. Bacon and eggs or steak and eggs cooked in butter with a couple cups of coffee and heavy cream.

          I went through phases, and tried many breakfasts through the years... I usually have to leave to work early, so not a lot of time for an early breakfast, I have mine around brunch time... best breakfast (i.e. the ones which made me very satisfied for many hours after) are:
          1- Cottage Cheese, plain or with maple syrup/ or honey if you are OK with it - easiest fast food and very filling
          2- Quinoa porridge (with non-dairy milk) - have to prep it the night before
          3-Liver, usually on some weekends unless I cook it the night before, especially when I have a lie-in - no idea why a small amount of liver has me bursting with energy for hours - expect its the nutrients

          Other varieties I have occasionally and mostly at weekends when I have time are:
          Of course the awsome full English breakfast, I don't trust any cafe as they use oils etc, so it has to be done at home at weekends
          Cottage & eggs pancakes - again takes time to cook so only at weekends

          I was travelling a couple of years ago, the hotel I stayed in served big greasy greasy greasy curries every morning for breakfast imagine all the lovely indo-china coconutty flavours!! I had that every morning lol as I had a whole day of walking and touring a head of me, and didn’t feel like eating anything else the rest of the day except a little snack perhaps in the evening... I lost weight on that trip & so fell in love the food, wish I can live in a 5star hotel who cook such meals lol .

            Scrambled eggs and bacon, or eggs and homemade sausage, usually with some veggies sautéed in bacon fat or butter to go along with it. I can usually make it 5-6 hours until lunch when I eat high fat high protein low carbs in the morning. Sometimes I have fruit and almond butter at work, or uncured salami, aged cheese, and an apple. Sometimes it's a totally unsweetened muffin (pumpkin or banana) toasted and slathered in Kerrygold. Always coffee.

                  I eat soft-boiled eggs almost every day. It is a bit of a rut, so I'm loving all of the ideas here.

                  But, on the weekends I love making a nice salad with lettuce, cukes, diced onion, avocado, etc. and having that with my s-b eggs or scrambled eggs and a nice cup of tea or a latte. It is quite a treat!

                    When I lived in Monterey, there was a French patisserie about a miles walk away and every other Saturday morning I would go and get either the quiche Lorraine and salad or the potato leek soup. It was the perfect breakfast. (20% though)

                      Surely everyone gets sick of eggs eventually?

                      I went through a phase of having roast vegetables for a while. Lately I've been having toasted coconut flakes with fruit and nuts, which make a good cereal substitute.

                      I occasionally have gluten free toast with avocado and vegemite (I'm from Oz... ). Sometimes I have the toast with sardines and sliced tomato.

                      When I was in Africa recently we had stewed plantain a few times, which was interesting. As was potato chips first thing in the morning! But I guess if its okay for lunch, why not?

                        Yeah, totally.

                        My breakfast is in general omelet with some sort of meat that is available.
                        This morning I had one of my Scottish Eggs. I made 4 yesterday so I have two of them for lunch as wel.

                        - other ideas are coconut pancakes, banana bread, grilled chicken, fruits.

                        I normally grab what ever is quick and in teh fridge. Some times it's just an apple.

                        It's all about trying to stay healthy!!!!

                              I'm probably the most boring eater on the planet. I like to eat the same foods every day, for whatever reason. Breakfast is typically cottage cheese, orange juice, and (gasp) oatmeal.

                                This is the nice thing about being unemployed--I actually have time to make bacon or sausage and eggs every morning.

                                When I was employed, I'd scramble about a dozen eggs on the weekend and take some with me to work every day.

                                Surprisingly, I don't get tired of eggs, but the reason I switch between sausage and bacon is that I do get a bit tired of having one or the other for too long.
