mysqldump has this terrible affinity for blowing its nose all over your data. If you just want a list of INSERT statements, here’s the magic spell:
mysqldump --skip-triggers --compact --no-create-info

Just so you know, those switches made my dump output nothing at all.
It was working before these.
It might just be what data I have or something, but I just thought I’d give a heads up here.

If you have to alter a table between backup and restore, add “–complete-insert” to be able to restore data even there are more fields after alter table.

–no-create-info is what i was searching. It skips dumping the create table and view parts for me. Just good plain data:
mysqldump –no-create-info –extended-insert=FALSE
–compact -uUSER -pPASS DBSchema > insert_data.sql
Option –extended-insert=FALSE disable multi value inserts, which results in single value inserts. Each row has it’s own insert statement.

I needed only data and insert statements on single line with no comments and no DB creation statement as:
mysqldump –skip-extended-insert –skip-comments –no-create-info –no-create-db -u root -pPWD DATABASE > /mnt/FOLDER/backup_`date +%m%d%y`.sql
