Costco carries almost everything imaginable and definitely has no shortage of ready-to-heat/eat breakfast options. They carry everything from oatmeal packs to breakfast sandwiches to freshly made pastries.
There are quite a few ways to rank breakfast foods. There is an argument to be made that convenience is king at breakfast, but the nutritional label, price, and taste all play a significant role. We’ve factored all of this into the rankings of Costco’s 10 most popular breakfast options.
1. Three Bridges Egg Bites
My absolute favorite Costco breakfast item is the Three Bridges egg bites. The egg bites are a Starbucks copycat but are too delicious to not have in the #1 spot. Costco sells 8 total egg bites for $10.99, just a fraction of Starbucks’ cost, and they come in two flavors: Spinach and Bell Pepper, and Cheese and Uncured Bacon.
Costco’s egg bites have it all. They are fairly priced, convenient to heat up (90 seconds), amazing nutritionally, and are so delicious. They are my #1 go-to Costco breakfast option, and it’s going to be really hard for any of the competitors to take its spot.
2. Red’s Egg’Wich Turkey Sausage
Costco’s best breakfast sandwich is, without a doubt, the keto-friendly (3 grams of carbs) egg’wich. The breakfast sandwich is made with cheese, turkey sausage and two egg patties. The eggwich sandwiches take just a few minutes to heat up, are filling, and are packed with protein.
An 8-pack of Reds Egg’wiches sells for $13.99 at Costco.
3. Health Warrior Oatmeal Variety Pack
Health Warriors Oatmeal packs were the talk of 2022 and for a good reason. The oatmeal is made with sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, flax and chia and comes in two different flavors; Apple Walnut and Strawberry Almond.
The oatmeal packs are tasty, full of nutrition, and have earned the #3 spot on our Costco Breakfast list. Costco sells a 20-pack of the health warrior oatmeal for $16.99.
4. Kirkland Signature Ham and Cheese Pastry
Costco has finally brought back its Ham and Cheese Pastry, and it jumps to the top of our Costco breakfast list. The pastry is light and flakey and filled with bechamel cheese, provolone cheese filling, and ham.
They are extremely easy to reheat in the air fryer, and you can even heat them with an egg on top for some extra protein. Costco sells a 4 pack of their Kirkland Signature Ham and cheese pastries for $8.99.
5. Don Miguel Breakfast Burritos
The most surprising item on our list is the Don Miguel Breakfast Burritos. These refrigerated burritos are made with cage-free eggs, sausage, two kinds of cheese, potatoes, and green chiles. They come out super crispy in the air fryer and are filling enough to get you to lunchtime. The key may be that these burritos are refrigerated and not frozen.
6 of these Costco breakfast burritos cost $11.99 and can be found in the refrigerated deli section of the warehouse.
6. Kirkland Signature Croissant
Nearly as popular as the muffins, the Kirkland Signature Croissants come in at #6 on our list. The ultra versatile croissant can be toasted and eaten as is or combined with eggs and bacon for an amazingly delicious croissant breakfast sandwich.
The price of a dozen Costco croissants has recently increased from $4.99 to $5.99.
7. Cuisine Adventures Mini Quiche
Cuisine Adventures’ mini quiche takes the number 7 spot on our list. The mini quiches live up to their name, with each one weighing three-quarters of an ounce. Each quiche has a crispy crust that holds the delicious egg filling.
The mini quiche comes with two flavors, three cheese and florentine, and a 72-count box sells for $17.69 at Costco. Costco also sells a full sized quiche which is another great breakfast option.
8. Grace Gourmet Bacon Gouda Egg
This Grace Gourmet breakfast sandwich is a copycat of Starbucks’ famous bacon gouda egg sandwich and quickly built up a lot of hype. Unfortunately, the breakfast sandwich fell quite short in a couple of key categories.
The sandwich is fine tasting, but the reality is that it takes about 15 minutes to heat up. A frozen breakfast sandwich just shouldn’t take that long, and I could probably drive to Starbucks, order the sandwich, and get home faster than I could heat one of these in the air fryer.
Costco sells an 8-pack of the Bacon Gouda Egg Sandwiches for $12.99.
9. Kirkland Signature Water Boiled Bagels
One of the more underrated options from the Costco bakery is their bagels. Costco sells a dozen mix-and-match bagels for $7.99 and they come in 5 different flavors; plain, sesame seed, everything bagel, cinnamon raisin, and parmesan.
The bagels are fairly priced, easy to prepare in the morning, and pair perfectly with Costco’s cream cheese or even some smoked salmon. It is a carb-filled breakfast, but at least the sugars are kept to a minimum.
10. Jimmy Dean Croissant Breakfast Sandwich
Jimmy Dean makes the list for the second time with the Croissant Sausage egg and cheese breakfast sandwich. This Burger King croissan’wich clone is nowhere near as healthy as the English Muffin Jimmy Dean Delight, but is much more flavorful and satisfying.
A 12-count box of the croissant breakfast sandwiches retails at Costco for $13.99. One thing to note is that the croissant bread is closer to a typical breakfast sandwich bun than a croissant bun.
