Costco now makes it easy to substitute Starbucks’ famous bacon, gouda and egg sandwich with one you can heat and eat at home. Plus, you’ll save $2.30 on each sandwich compared to the Starbucks version — and that’s not even counting the coffee beverage you’re bound to buy while you’re there to go with your breakfast.

The Grace Gourmet Bacon, Gouda & Egg Sandwiches have been spotted in Costco freezer cases across the country, EatThis.com reports. You can get eight for $13.49, or roughly $1.70 per sandwich.

The Grace Gourmet version may also be slightly healthier, with 290 calories compared to 360 for the Starbucks version. It also has 26 carbs compared to 35, and 13 grams of fat versus 18.
