Best Breakfast Sausage
Best Breakfast Sausage Review
I grew up eating those breakfast sausage links out of the box that were kept in the freezer. Back then, breakfast sausage was something I had once or twice a week at the most. Eggs were out of the question. This was the early 1970s when the fear of fat and cholesterol was the latest health concern and all the rage. Since then, low-fat diet recommendations have been proven to be a complete fraud and we can now gorge on those tasty, cholesterol-rich and healthy foods that our grandparents were smart enough to enjoy. . I think we could all stand to get a little more saturated fat in our diets and that makes breakfast sausage a popular contributor. I eat breakfast sausage or bacon with eggs at least 3 times a week, so I’ve become familiar with the quality of the most popular brands of breakfast sausage rolls for making patties.
Breakfast Sausage Patties Brands
Obviously, there are superior brands of breakfast sausage that you can buy at your local meat shops, but nothing beats the convenience of the rolls of sausage that you fry up as patties. Jimmy Dean is probably the most popular grocery store brand, but not necessarily the best breakfast sausage you can fry up with your morning eggs or omelets in the mornings. While Jimmy Dean breakfast sausage fries up well, it has just a little too much sage and doesn’t seem quite as meaty as a couple of the other brands: Bob Evans, Owens and Tennessee Pride are among the mix of best breakfast sausages, but some of them are hard to find at the local grocery store, Tennessee Pride, for example, doesn’t seem to exist here in Denver and that’s too bad – they have an excellent spicy version of breakfast sausage that I’ve eaten in Arkansas and wish I could find in the local grocery store.
What is the Best Breakfast Sausage
The top three brands are almost too close to call. Jimmy Dean, Bob Evans and Owens are all good for making great-tasting meaty, breakfast sausage. Tennessee Pride belongs on the list too, but they are a bit more difficult to find. I give the edge to Bob Evans because it is less sagish than the Jimmy Dean and is usually priced better and easier to find on sale than the other two. I’m nitpicking, it really depends on what you like. The one advice I can give is to tell you to stay away from whatever the house-brand breakfast sausage sold at the store. King Soopers, Kroger, Safeway, etc., sell a very fatty, pork sausage roll that tastes gamey and lacks any real breakfast sausage seasonings. These low-priced store brands also seem to burn very easily because the fat content is so high. Now, I certainly have nothing against fat, but when it comes to breakfast sausage, I’ve yet to taste a decent store-bought brand. If it is sold in your area, give Bob Evans a try.
