Bite-Sized Breakfast

Starbucks' egg bites are one of the best breakfast items the chain has to offer. They're simple and they won't leave you feeling overly full. Still, grabbing these little guys for breakfast as part of your regular morning routine can get pretty costly. Instead, try making them at home with these quick and easy recipes.

3. McGriddle Bites

Starbucks might have the egg-bite market cornered in the world of fast food, but this recipe draws inspiration from McDonald's McGriddle. While they don't actually contain eggs, these McGriddle bites have a pancake mix base and sausage, cheese, and syrup looped in. These little breakfast bites are entirely irresistible.

5. Mini Sausage Egg Muffins

If we're going to talk about bacon and ham egg bites, we can't leave sausage out of the conversation, as the other stalwart breakfast meat. Spicy sausage packs these eggy little guys with a bit of bite, and the hashbrowns make them more well-rounded and filling than your average egg, meat, and cheese bite.
