Breakfast is the most boring meal of the day.

I would have to whole-heartedly disagree with you. Breakfast is the best meal of the day - I could (and do at times) eat it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
Whilst I love a large variety of breakfast items, my most craved is an egg (a little salt and a good amount of pepper) and American cheese on a Kaiser roll, straight from a New York deli. The Kaiser roll makes this sandwich; not a bagel, or toast, or English muffin. Also, while I love real cheese, American cheese goes very well on this as it melts quickly and evenly. I am getting hungry just thinking about it.

Best is probably the Irish/Scottish/English/British/Welsh (sorry, did not want to skip ones breakfast) and I really love the black and white pudding parts...better to have more of that than the bacon.

Unfortunately, most times it is a banana and fruitjuice or milk with lemonjuice mixed. But in weekends I really like warm breathrolls with melting butter, cheese and sweet/spicey sambal badjak on top of it.

A Myanmar mohinga.

Mohinga, (Mohingar) is considered to be Myanmar's National dish. It is basically a fish broth with noodles, served with various accompaniments. It is traditionally eaten for breakfast although it can be (and is) eaten at any time of the day or night. Such is its popularity, that most urban centres throughout the country have vendors who sell it ready made.
Of course, being such a common dish, as one might expect there are many variations in the cooking. So much so, that many of the vendors display a sign showing the chef's name and the area from where they come thus indicating the style of Mohinga being served. However, the basics remain the same - fish, stock and fine noodles served with a variety of garnishes such as boiled eggs, gourd-fritters, boiled or raw shredded green beans, fried onion and garlic and coriander leaves, though not necessarily all together. Most Myanmar's are content with just three or four of them , but especially boiled egg and gourd-fritters.

The restaurant staff at my Yangon hotel made the perfect breakfast mohingas, but I would then finish off with the 2nd best breakfast - crispy bacon, 2 eggs sunny side up, coupla hash browns, baked beans and tomato sauce.
Thought I'd gone to diner heaven

Oooohhh, Anthony, your breakfast made me think of my favorite one from Jamaica...

Steamed callaloo served with bammie and fried plantains. Callaloo is made with greens, similar to spinach, though amaranth leaves are most often used and sometimes called calllaloo leaves. The dish is chopped amaranth leaves, chopped onions, chopped tomoatoes, garlic, a dash of thyme and scotch bonnet peppers (optional). The leaves, onions and garlic are sauted until leaves are wilted. The tomatoes and a small amount of water are added and it all simmers for about 10 minutes. The leaves begin to turn brown if they are overcooked. Bammie is a flatbread made with cassava flour and either toated or fried in a skillet. The fried plantains are served with a tomato/mango dipping salsa which is wonderful. Add some slices of fresh papaya - yummy!

Mikey, my breakfast was identical to yours (from the Grand Hotel in Fort William), apart from that the sausages weren't square, which is disappointing - should I complain that it's being mis-sold?

Absolutely. That's just completely out of order.

Truthfully, I skip breakfast most mornings and I completely disagree with that "most important meal of the day" nonsense. If you're hungry, eat. If not, don't.

Hmmm - sounds quite nice!

It would depend if the dice were weighted. We'll have to ask Otto von Bismarck.
