Jimmy Dean Heat ‘n Serve Original Sausage Patties Value Pack Review

Jimmy Dean Heat 'n Serve Original Sausage Patties Value Pack

Jimmy Dean makes a pretty robust line of breakfast sandwiches. If you’re familiar with the brand at all, you probably know them for this segment of their line. They do a lot more than sandwiches though, oftentimes getting really creative with their takes on breakfast food. On the other hand, they also manufacture plain breakfast meats.

Today, we’re checking out one of those breakfast meats, as we’re reviewing the Jimmy Dean Heat ‘n Serve Original Sausage Patties Value Pack.

These can be cooked either in the microwave or on the stovetop, and since we got ourselves a value-sized bag, we figured we’d try both. (If you want to see the full cooking instructions, check out our package scans at the bottom of this review.)

No matter how you cook these, they end up with a pretty lovely flavor. It’s not anything that will change your world, but it’s a decent enough sausage that we’re interested in using it in some breakfast foods. We want to try making our own breakfast burritos that use this sausage as a protein, for example.

There’s a little bit of kick to these, but it’s the exact kind you’d expect from a breakfast sausage. It tingles the back of your throat, but we wouldn’t use a term like spicy to describe these. If you eat a lot of breakfast sausage, we’re sure you know exactly what we’re talking about.

Of course, in the microwave, these end up super rubbery. The flavor is mostly the same (though the stovetop version will have a little bit of a charred flavor if you fry it just a little longer), but the consistency is kind of off-putting. We do recommend the stovetop for this sausage to avoid consistency issues.

Two patties is considered a serving, and even then you’re consuming 200 calories (180 of which is fat) and 560 mg of sodium. That’s kind of a lot for how small these are (the circumference of one patty is about the same as one of those 7.5 oz. soda cans). These are definitely meant as a side rather than a full meal, and as a side, they add quite a few calories and a whole bunch of sodium to your breakfast. Keep that in mind if you decide to pick up a bag of these.

The Jimmy Dean Heat ‘n Serve Original Sausage Patties Value Pack is a big bag of tasty yet simple breakfast sausage. We think these are good to keep around as a protein to add to breakfast items (like omelettes and breakfast sandwiches), but they’re good enough to eat on their own. Just don’t make a meal of these little buggers, because they’re loaded with calories and sodium.
