365 Everyday Value Classic Pork Breakfast Sausage Review

365 Everyday Value Classic Pork Breakfast Sausage

Here at Freezer Meal Frenzy, we’re no strangers to 365 Everyday Value’s line of frozen breakfast sausage links. We find their Savory Chicken Breakfast Sausage to be quite alright, and the Chicken and Blueberry version is very good. But we haven’t yet had a chance to try out the true classic of the bunch, the Classic Pork Breakfast Sausage (the word classic is even in the title!) Today, we’re changing that.

According to the box, we should expect to find approximately 10.5 links in a package. Ours contained exactly ten, and they were sealed together in a plastic wrap.

The box lists microwave instructions, but we recommend using the stovetop instructions instead. Our past experiences with microwavable sausage links weren’t great, and these were definitely made with the stovetop in mind. You’ll want to put about 1/3 a cup of water in a pan, warm it up a bit, then toss in the sausage links for about seven minutes.

The water might be complete evaporated by the time these are done, especially if you don’t put a lid on your pan. These start to burn very quickly once the water is gone, so you’ll want to watch them carefully. You’ll also want to put them onto your plate carefully once they’re done cooking, because they’re quite bouncy. If you just dump your pan straight onto your plate, you might find these bouncing onto the floor before you have time to stop them.

Now, these have your classic pork flavor without any funny business. And that’s not a bad thing here; these are actually quite rich in flavor. We also found the texture to be a bit nicer than other versions of these sausage links. The Savory Chicken and Chicken & Blueberry versions both seemed a little rubbery. These have a little bit of that, but it’s far less noticeable — and far less of a problem — with the pork version.

These do have a bit of bite to them. We’re not sure where that comes from, because the ingredients vaguely list “spices” without detailing what those are. The bite is the sort that primarily hits the back of your throat; you probably won’t feel it in your mouth.

One serving size is three links, and we think that’s a fair amount if you plan on eating these as a side. They really aren’t designed to be a meal on their own. That said, a serving contains 190 calories and 380 mg of sodium. That’s not bad, though if you eat a whole package at once that becomes about 630 calories and about 1,260 mg of sodium. (Eating a full package at once is not recommended.)

The 365 Everyday Value Classic Pork Breakfast Sausage is a traditional take on this tried-and-true breakfast protein. It doesn’t do anything particularly innovative, but it doesn’t need to. These links taste great on their own, and they’re also quite good with a dab of maple syrup.
