Jimmy Dean Sausage and Blueberry Biscuit Snack Size Sandwiches Review

Jimmy Dean Sausage and Blueberry Biscuit Snack Size Sandwiches

Sausage and blueberries are two food items that couldn’t be more different from each other, yet they come together to make an absolutely wonderful flavor combination. In fact, some takes on breakfast sausage links actually have blueberries mixed in! So it doesn’t seem strange to us at all that Jimmy Dean, an all-breakfast frozen food brand, would create sandwiches using blueberry biscuits and sausage patties. The combination seems like a no-brainer.

In case you haven’t guessed by now, today we’re checking out the Jimmy Dean Sausage and Blueberry Biscuit Snack Size Sandwiches. (These are suspiciously absent from the Jimmy Dean website, though you can still find the non-blueberry version.)

When you crack open the box, you’ll find five packets, each containing two sandwiches.

Clearly, these are designed to be eaten two at a time, which is good because they’re quite small. They’re slightly larger in diameter than, say, an Oreo cookie.

In the past, we’ve thawed our Jimmy Dean sandwiches before cooking them, since we like the way they cook from the refrigerator better than from the freezer — we find they cook more evenly that way. But this time, we followed the instructions on the package and heated these from frozen. (To be honest, we just forgot to put them in the fridge the night before.) We heated ours (two sandwiches) for 50 seconds and didn’t have any problems with coldness in the middle of the sausage or anything like that. We do think you could get away with adding a few extra seconds, though. 55 would probably be perfect.

These are simple sandwiches — they’re really just sausage patties squished between two pieces of blueberry biscuit. There’s no cheese or sauce or anything like that to dress them up.

But that’s not really a problem. The sausage is particularly flavorful, with a lovely snap and hints of sweetness. The blueberries in the biscuit pieces are pretty subtle, but you can taste them if you squint your eyes and focus.

The biscuit itself is nothing special. It’s a little bit dry, but the moistness of the sausage evens it out nicely. The contrast between the dryness of the biscuit and the dampness of the meat is actually quite appealing.

Now, if you really wanted to, you could dunk these sandwiches in some maple syrup or something, but we don’t think that’s necessary — they have plenty of flavor on their own.

One packet, which contains two sandwiches, is considered a serving. This two-sandwich serving will cost you 360 calories (250 from fat) and 530 mg of sodium. That’s not bad for a breakfast, but these are really more of a snack. We don’t think two of these will smoosh a morning hunger, so you’ll end up pairing it with something else, perhaps a muffin or a bagel and a cup of coffee and/or glass of juice. The calories can really start adding up once you build out a full breakfast, so be careful.

The Jimmy Dean Sausage and Blueberry Biscuit Snack Size Sandwiches are small and simple but still loaded with flavor. While we wish they were maybe a tad more filling, we do think there’s a lot to love here.
