In this month's Costco Food Finds post, we are asking the question - What's for Breakfast?
What do you like to eat for breakfast?
Just a cup of coffee and a muffin? A big bowl of cereal, oatmeal, or granola?
Are you a serious breakfast eater and need your bacon & eggs everyday?
I hope to have something for everyone in this Breakfast Edition of Costco Food Finds.
Breakfast in a Bowl
If you like your breakfast in a bowl, here are a few good options for you.
Happy Inside Probiotic Cereal | $11.99 for 34.5oz | 1243619
Give your digestive health a punch in the gut with this cereal. It contains prebotics, probiotics, and fiber. Most of us I would say know about probiotics and fiber, but you might be asking what are prebiotics? This is the food for the good bacteria we have in our bodies. This cereal is out to improve digestive health with more than just probiotics - a concept that sounds good to me, and something I would look into more.
The flavor that Costco had was Simply Strawberry - a good choice that most people would go for.
Kirkland Nature's Path Ancient Grains Granola with Almonds | $6.99 for 35.3 oz | 526528
This one has been a stable at Costco for a while now. I would love to hear from those that have given this granola try. I don't like almonds so I haven't actually tried it for myself, but I do love all the Nature's Path products I have had. We eat a lot of Nature's Path granola in our house.
Bob's Red Mill Organic Quick Cooking Steel Cut Oats | $7.99 for 112oz | 731962
If you prefer the taste and or texture of steel cut oats but don't have the time it takes to make them, then you may want to give these quick cooking steel cut oats a try. The oats aren't flatten into flakes like rolled oats. It's just steel cut oats that have been cut for quicker cooking.
Seven Sundays Modern Muesli - Blueberry Chia Buckwheat | $7.79 for 32 oz | 1091938
More and more people are getting into overnight oatmeal. They love to have oatmeal that is ready to go when they are in the morning, when time is often more limited. I need to get around to doing an overnight oatmeal on this blog. Seven Sundays Muesli would be a great option for overnight oatmeal.
I love me some breakfast meats - sausage and bacon! So devine. We have breakfast for dinner sometimes so I can have an excuse to spring for higher quality stuff. Here are some good choices from Costco that aren't too pricey for the amount your getting.
Pure Farms Applewood Smoked Bacon | $13.99 for 2-24oz packages | 664313
This applewood smoked bacon is center cut. The meat comes from the center of the pork belly, which is less fatty. You get more meat and less shrinking.

Amylu Organic Maple Chicken Sausage Links | $13.99 for 32oz | 99084
I prefer pork sausage but I have not a single problem with a good chicken sausage. Amylu makes just that - really good chicken sausage. And of course maple and sausage is always a good thing.
Jones Uncured Cherrywood Canadian Bacon | $12.89 for 24oz | 1039877
As I mentioned in the caption above, I love cherrywood smoked meats. So I am all about this Canadian Bacon from Jones Dairy Farm. It's a good choice if you want something leaner than traditional bacon or if you want to salute the Canadian flag - power to the maple leaf!
Other Breakfast Foods
Here are couple other breakfast related items you need to check out at Costco.
Kirkland Organic Maple Syrup | 1 liter for $10.79 | 679131
Costco is my go to source for maple syrup. I don't think it's the best tasting I ever had at all, but price wise you can't do much better and with as many mouths as I have to feed that is an important thing. I do like that the syrup is organic.

Liberte Organic Strawberry Yogurt | $13.69 for 12-5.5oz cups | 1275741
Liberte yogurt is whole milk yogurt, which gives it a rich, creamy flavor you don't find in low or nonfat yogurts. I am totally down with that.
Just Because I Had To
Talenti Holiday Gelato | 4-1 pints for $11.99 | 1204457
Gelato for breakfast? Ok not really. I don't at least don't unless it's going to be a really rough day. I just had to mention this gelato 4-pack that I found during my last Costco trip. It contains 4 great seasonal flavors - Pumpkin Pie, Old World Eggnog, Caramel Apple Pie, and Pepperiment Bark. That got all the flavors of the coming holidays covered. Get some and stash it away in the freezer and pull it out when your holiday guests or family have worn you out (make sure they aren't looking!).
