Convenience is kind of our thing here at Sporked. That means we’re all about breakfast shortcuts. Why make waffle batter when you can just buy really good frozen waffles? Sure, you could scramble eggs, fry bacon, and bake up some hash browns—or you could just buy a frozen breakfast bowl that takes literally one minute to cook in the microwave. This year we taste tested everything from breakfast burritos to chocolate cereal, but a few breakfast foods we tasted were real standouts—and they just so happen to make having a delicious morning meal extremely easy. Keep these in your kitchen for lazy mornings.
- Three Little Pigs Uncured Bacon & Swiss Egg Bites
If you love the bacon and gruyèe sous vide egg bites at Starbucks, you are going to love Three Little Pigs Uncured Bacon & Swiss Egg Bites. They’re a perfect dupe—and you can enjoy them without suffering the indignity of having someone spell your name with three incorrect vowels. They’re fluffy, light, and rich with smoky, salty flavor. Plus, they’re ready to eat after only 40 seconds in the microwave. When I reviewed these back in February, I predicted they’d be getting a Sporked Award. Look at them now!

- Bacon Toaster Scrambles
I recognize this is a somewhat controversial pick for the best breakfast food we tasted this year. When I brought this savory, egg- and bacon-filled toaster pastry on an episode of Good Mythical More, my boss Link absolutely hated it. But I am holding strong to my conviction that Bacon Toaster Scrambles are, in fact, delicious. The crust is unbelievably flaky and buttery, and the filling is smoky, eggy, and cheesy. When it comes to savory foods you can just pop into the toaster, I don’t think it gets better than this. Toaster Scrambles are not new (I remember liking them back in the ‘90s), but if it’s been a while since you had one, give ‘em another shot.
