McDonald's says it will begin selling a variety of breakfast items for $1 beginning in January.
A spokeswoman for the world's largest hamburger chain says the five breakfast items will be available on the company's popular Dollar Menu early next month.
The dishes include a Sausage McMuffin, a sausage burrito, a sausage biscuit, a small coffee and a hash brown. The menu may feature some variations based on markets.
The move comes as McDonald's tries to fight a slide in U.S. sales. The recent declines follow months when its cheap eats were a big draw for recession-strapped diners.

Analysts say the move should help McDonald's draw more customers in the morning.
High unemployment has hampered breakfast sales. With fewer people commuting to work, fewer people are coming in for breakfast.
"We know now, more than ever, our customers continue to look for everyday affordability wherever and whenever they choose to eat out," McDonald's spokeswoman Danya Proud said.
In another addition to McDonald's value offerings, the chain will start selling its Mac Snack Wrap, a wrap version of its popular Big Mac sandwich, later this month for a suggested price of $1.49.
McDonald's plans to devote more advertising dollars than it has in the past to value in 2010, hoping to combat weakening sales in fast-food. Earlier this week, McDonald's said U.S. same-store sales fell 0.6 percent in November, its second straight down month.
McDonald's is based in the Chicago suburb of Oak Brook, Ill.
