My breakfasts don't look much different than other meals! I don't eat eggs so I often have ground meat hash of sorts with turnip, greens and coconut butter. If I'm craving more of a "traditional" breakfast I may mix some ground chia seeds with raw hemp protein, fruit, nuts and some hot coconut milk to make a "porridge". I know most folks eat lots of morning egg dishes
Sometimes I have:
chicken breast and sweet potatoes with mustard and sriracha
pork tenderloin in pig's feet jelly with sweet potatoes and mustard
sometimes after the scrambled eggs I'll make a banana/protein powder/almond butter/egg white microwave mug cake
3 fried egg whites with leftover meat from dinner and put the egg yolks in my coffee
meat, chicken or fish with riced cauliflower and carrots and sriracha
half a banana and instant coffee in a protein powder shake a few hours before any of the above

Chocolate banana pancakes: Blend one banana, 1T cocoa powder, two eggs, vanilla essence. Melt butter in a small frypan, pour in the mixture, cook gently till almost set, slide onto plate then flip back into the pan to cook the other side. Makes two.
Omelette: Stirfry two mushrooms and a leaf of silver beet, beat two eggs with a splash of milk or cream, season with salt and pepper. Pour over the veges and cook till almost set. Sprinkle with grated cheese and finish under the grill.
Hash browns: Stir a beaten egg through some mashed potato, form into patties and pan fry in butter.
I go through periods of food obsession. For example right now I am making 1/2 gallon of yogurt each week so I eat a lot of that.
Random stuff I put in my yogurt when I feel like it:
Thawed frozen fruit, diced apple, bananas, berries
Honey, preserves (when I had a farmers market a lady made the best, chunkiest, creatively flavored butters and jams. Gah I miss it) recommended only a little, and after your body has adjusted to a lower, more moderate sugar intake. I use these as treats
Any combination of the above
I've gone literally months eating different frittatas every weekday (I often skipped on weekends). Some of my favorites were broccoli or zucchini, bacon, and Romano, spinach and feta, and pork and greens. I cooked the meats if there were any in plenty of butter and then just poured over the other ingredients and beaten eggs. Never stuck and I have steel pans.
I've also gone through a OMGNOMOAREGGS stage where I ate cold leftover roast chicken and sweet potatoes, cold hamburgers, avocado, ground beef and greens, or canned fish.
Now that I don't have a kitchen, I've had to simplify my breakfasts. Some days it's just an apple or piece of fruit, sometimes with a hunk of cheese. When I've eaten through the yogurt, I'll scramble or poach some eggs in the microwave.
If I have somehow gotten through a quart of strained yogurt and all or most of my eggs, I'll get a little more creative and make the cauliflower grits from Mark's cookbook (puréed cooked cauliflower, butter, salt) and treat it just like grits (with cheese, poached egg, sausage, or shrimp, puréed cooked pumpkin, or some dried fruits and nuts if I ever have any around). I will occasionally make some primal treats like banana or pumpkin muffins.
I rarely like to cook in the morning, so on the rare mornings im hungry its usually left over dinner with coffee, hardboiled eggs with siracha a banana and coffee or a few cans of sardines with coffee. Usually its just coffee tho and i cook a huge breakfast/lunch when I wake up a bit.
I just made egg muffins for the week which consisted off eggs, homemade sausage, and a little potatoes o'brien. Other times I have a slice of meat, cheese and a piece of fruit or yogurt. Other times I eat leftovers. When I feel like a treat I have a hazelnut tapioca waffle with butter and maple syrup.

I get up at 4 45 in the A.M. and am out the door by 5 20 A.M. who has time for breakfast? I eat around noon with a sample of last nights leftovers. My big meal is supper. Mind you I have been doing this for a few years now so what I do may not work for a newbie.
Breakfast should be mostly protein and fats so you dont break your fast with an insulin burst after being on fat burning mode all night though How you assemble that is up to you. I liked boiled eggs and herring or sardines with spicy salsa for mornings.
I have two scrambled eggs with 1/2 - 1 TBSP Virgin Coconut Oil centrifuged and a couple fish oil capsules every day. 3 times a week, Mon, Wed, Fri I use 1/2 - 1 TBSP Unsalted Kerrygold grass fed butter instead of the coconut oil. I try not to take in more butter than that to keep my omega 6 low.
HCLF: lean red meat, eggs, low-fat dairy, bone broth/gelatin, fruits, seafood, liver, small amount of starch (oatmeal, white rice, potatoes, carrots), small amount of saturated fat (butter/ghee/coconut/dark chocolate/cheese).
