(WJHL/AP) – Breakfast fans rejoice! McDonalds is adding more items to its all-day breakfast menu.  Beginning this September, you will be able to enjoy its newest addition – McGriddles as well as biscuits and McMuffins.

When McDonald’s launched a limited all-day breakfast menu in the fall, stores offered sandwiches made with either English muffins or biscuits depending on local preferences. The idea was to keep operations simple.

Now, the company says U.S. stores will offer both, and McGriddles, which are made with syrupy pancake buns. McDonald’s says adding McGriddles was a top request from customers.

The Oak Brook, Illinois-based company says the national rollout will start in late August and spread to other markets throughout September.

McDonald’s Corp. has been trying to revive slumping sales after conceding it failed to keep up with changing tastes.

The new expanded all-day menu included the following:

Egg McMuffin
Sausage McMuffin with Egg
Sausage McMuffin, Bacon
Egg & Cheese Biscuit
Sausage Biscuit with Egg
Sausage Biscuit
Bacon, Egg & Cheese McGriddles
Sausage, Egg & Cheese McGriddles
Sausage McGriddles
Hotcakes and Sausage
Sausage Burrito
Fruit & Maple Oatmeal
Fruit ‘N Yogurt Parfait
Hashbrowns (varies by restaurant)

Within the past year, McDonalds has moved from using margarine to real butter in its kitchens and it’s announced it will fully transition to cage-fee eggs at its nearly 16,000 restaurants in the U.S. and Canada over the next 9 years.
