For those of you who chose NOT to stand in line for the free breakfast this morning, we thought we'd compare other popular breakfast choices so you can feel a little better about not getting today's special.

If you opted for McDonald's hotcakes and sausage with syrup and margarine, you inhaled 740 calories, 28.5 grams of fat. A Jack-in-the-Box Sirloin Steak & Egg Burrito will set you back 790 calories, 48 grams of fat.

A trip to Starbucks this morning? A cheese bagel with cream cheese and a tall soy latte would be 471 calories with 15 grams of fat.

A Six-Cheese Bagel from Einstein Bros. is 350 calories, with 6 grams of fat without the cream cheese. Add whipped plain and you're adding 70 calories and 7 grams of fat to that meal.
