I suggest eating at home if you can. Not only will you save a few bucks, you'll save on some calories and believe it or not, time as well.
I am a huge fan of Jimmy Dean Breakfast sandwiches, they're inexpensive, convenient and tasty! But today I'm trying another Jimmy Dean product, a 'Breakfast Bowl.' I'm sampling the 'Meat Lovers' variety which is a seven ounce helping of potatoes, sausage, cage free eggs, cheddar cheese and bacon.
Prepared in the microwave per the package instructions, I was ready to eat in about 4 minutes, how's that for convenience? Faster than cooking something up on your own and no waiting in line at a fast food drive-thru.
"But how does it taste?" you ask....
Have faith, I state that based on how good Jimmy Dean breakfast sandwiches are.
My first fork full was a blast of that great tasting Jimmy Dean sausage and this breakfast bowl is loaded with it. The eggs are fluffy, the potatoes are fluffy-tender, the crumbled bacon is a nice compliment and the buttery notes of the cheddar cheese ties everything together. All ingredients were seasoned well throughout, this is a nicely balanced breakfast blend of quality ingredients.
A new product offering at Costco, a box of eight breakfast bowls cost me just $9.49 after an instant rebate at the register. I should have bought TWO boxes, that's a ridiculous price at just $1.19 a bowl!
Jimmy Dean Breakfast Bowls - Meat Lovers - gets 5 out of 5 Bachelor on the Cheap stars. It's definitely priced right (even at the regular price of $13.99 for a box of eight it's going to be just $1.75 a bowl), it's convenient as heck and most importantly, it's tasty, tasty, tasty!
