You've probably heard of the saying, "Breakfast like a king and dinner like a pauper". Well they don't say this for nothing. Around the world, breakfast is a meal that holds a lot of importance. After all, it is the start to your day. So if you're bored of your daily butter and toast and want some inspiration to spice up your mornings, have a look at these scrumptious delicacies from around the world.
