NEW YORK — 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 also will be able to mix items to create "Midnight Value Meals," with either fries or hash browns as their sides, McDonald's says in a statement.
The company says the "After Midnight" menu is already available in North Delaware, Delaware and College Station, Texas.
McDonald's Corp., based in Oak Brook, Ill., has more than 14,000 locations nationwide. The company has been working to expand hours around the world as a way to boost sales.
