Food Review: Breakfast Best brand sausage, egg & cheese croissant sandwiches

By Mike Thayer

Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day and my go-to meal is a Jimmy Dean sausage, egg & cheese croissant sandwich and a cup of coffee.  It's a convenient, simple, but pleasurable hot breakfast to start my work day. 

20190610_080018I can pick up a box of 12 Jimmy Dean breakfast sandwiches at Costco for about $12, that's $1 per sandwich, that's cheap but tasty eats!  But when shopping at Aldi one day, I happened across their discount brand version, the Breakfast Best sausage, egg & cheese croissant.  At only $3.99 for a box of four sandwiches, I thought I would give them a try.  Would they be as good as Jimmy Dean's?

Similar in almost every way to the Jimmy Deans, I removed the sandwich from the wrapper, put it on a paper plate (easy clean up!) and microwaved it according to the box instructions.  About three minutes later, I was enjoying breakfast and a cup of hazelnut coffee with cream.

The sandwich hit the spot.  It microwaved well, the sausage had a hint of smoke to it, the egg was fluffy enough, the cheese melted nicely and most importantly, that croissant was flaky.  Sometimes when you nuke a sandwich, the bread can get a bit of a hard, too crispy edge to it.  Not so here.  Overall, this is a good knock-off of the Jimmy Dean sandwich.  The only real difference is in the sausage, while having that hint of smoke, it's not as nicely seasoned as the Jimmy Dean. 

20190610_080004-1With both brands pricing out at $1 per sandwich, it comes down to which sandwich I would prefer to eat.  Jimmy Dean.  The Breakfast Best is a nice Plan B though.

I'm giving Breakfast Best sausage, egg & cheese croissant sandwiches 4 out of 5 Bachelor on the Cheap stars.  The price is right and they taste good, just not quite as good as Jimmy Dean's.

4 stars
