Instant breakfast

I don't want a vitamin packed roughage shake, and I don't want a half acre of horse food and berries in a bowl of milk. I want a real tarnation instant breakfast damit.

I like to set the alarm clock to wake me in the morning two or three minutes after my coffee stops brewing.
Just enough time for the smell to begin rousing me before the inevitable peace altering bleat of the alarm shatters my precious down-time.
Why not one machine that does the works?

At night you toss your three or four strips of bacon on a removable, (for clean up), mini skillet, with a flip top lid, which flattens the bacon and cooks it to the desired level of crispiness while draining the grease into a collection pan.
Place two or three eggs, spiced to taste, on a separate flip top skillet, and pop a couple of pieces of buttered bread in the toaster oven atatchment.
To make it complete, the unit should come equiped to make a half pot of coffee, or tea, and a third skillet for warming whatever you like with your bacon and eggs, (hash browns for me thanx).
Each skillet has it's own slot in the machine. These slots have upper and lower elements that are programmable to have the entire breakfast done at the same time and to your individual tastes. Flip a switch and the unit seals relatively air tight till morning, although it may need a cooling unit, (how fast does bacon start to turn anyway?)

The deluxe model would cook up to breakfast for four

       Setting your alarm clock to wake you in the morning two or three minutes after your coffee stops brewing is much better than setting your coffeemaker to finish brewing two or three minutes before your alarm goes off.
Bacon definitely needs to be chilled - eggs are best if set out at room temperature overnight. Bread goes stale fast, so munch on *this*.

       A bit Rube Goldberg, no? Wasn't there something similar in "Back to the Future"?

       There's a bunch of "automatic house" sequences in film out there. Most have them depict the inhabitant mopping eggs off the ceiling at the end.   

       Go for it.

       I want to call this a wibini, but I'm almost ashamed to admit whose movie I'm referencing. (hint: he wears a grey suit and rides an overdecorated red bike with a lion on the handlebars)

       I think you mean WTCTTISITMWIBNIIWR. And Pee-wee Herman. Though you could have saved us both some embarassment by going with Wallace and Gromit.

       In what way is this instant? You'd have to spend 20 minutes filling the darned thing the night before. It's a teasmaid that cooks bacon too, right?

       Also in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, but built by Rowland Emett, not Rube Goldberg.
