McDonald's is taking a small step toward offering breakfast items outside of its usual breakfast hours — at least if you're a night owl.

Starting this month, the hamburger chain says participating 24-hour restaurants will offer an “After Midnight” menu that includes some breakfast favorites.

Customers will be able to mix items to build “Midnight Value Meals,” with either fries or hash browns as their sides, McDonald's said in a statement.

The company said the “After Midnight” menu is available in North Delaware, Delaware and College Station, Texas.

McDonald's Corp., based in Oak Brook, Ill., has been working to expand hours around the world as a way to increase sales.
