Breakfast ideas

This question probably is more suited to the nutrition section but since powerlifters diets are usually different than most peoples diet I might get better recipe ideas here. I am just looking for simple quick recipes for some variety because I am getting sick of eating eggs every morning.

Improving Squat

Any advice for building a stronger squat? My bench and deadlift aren't of a concern to me, however being 6'3, my squat feels awkward and I have trouble building strength. I have a dedicated squat day each week, for accessory work I do pause and split squats after squatting 5 heavy sets of 3-5 reps.
