We all know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. For many, it’s also the biggest meal of the day. But apparently, that doesn’t mean your breakfast foods have to be big. Thanks to the latest trend to hit TikTok, people across the world are enjoying their favorite breakfast foods in miniature, by turning them into “cereal.” So if you’ve ever wanted to indulge in a wholesome and balanced breakfast but in bite-sized servings, now is definitely the time. All you’ll need to do is cook your favorite breakfast food in tiny portions, add to a bowl, pour in some milk, and you’re good to go. Just don’t forget to film your tiny-food journey for TikTok.
This tiny-food trend kicked off with pancake cereal, and then cookie cereal. But by this point, there really are no rules. Instead, these creative TikTok users are amazing everyone with their ability to turn literally anything and everything into breakfast cereal form. Some people are sticking to classic breakfast staples, whipping up miniature sunny side up eggs and bacon. Others are taking advantage of this new phenomenon to incorporate some less traditional -and more sugary – foods. Some of these more decadent “cereals” include little doughnuts, tiny blueberry muffins, bite-sized chocolate-covered cookie dough, and miniature brownies.

If that isn’t ingenuity at its finest, we don’t know what is. One thing is for sure: this breakfast challenge is a great excuse to indulge in your favorite foods early on in the day. Tiny pizza bagels for breakfast? Sure, why not.
