Review: Jimmy Dean Breakfast Bowl Delights
I purchased 2 Jimmy Dean Breakfast Bowl Delights over my past few shopping trips. They had the $1.25 off any 59 oz or larger Orange Juice floating around and since OJ is a regular staple in our home I thought I would give it a try. They offer two variety's one with ham and the other with sausage, I purchased both with sausage.
Today, I decided to have one for breakfast. My biggest issue is that I am always on the go in the morning so sometimes I skip breakfast or grab any junk which is not good. I need something that is quick and that I can take on the go with me, these breakfast bowls take less than 3 minutes to cook and are in a portable plastic bowl, perfect for my lifestyle! They have sausage, eggs, cheese and potatoes.
The Verdict: Pretty Good
The thing about frozen foods is that the run the risk of still tasting frozen, even when cooked! I really enjoyed the bowl, even though it was a little dry. I think the dryness was from the potatoes which normally I would put ketchup on, but since it was all combined in one bowl I didn't use any ketchup. Another thing is my microwave is super, so I probably didn't need to cook it as long as the instructions indicated. I probably could have been fine cooking it at 2min and 30sec. When I make the next bowl, I will cook it for less time.
Worth the Money: YES
They have just 250 calories and about 22grams of protein and if you use this to replace say, a McDonalds breakfast then this is the way to go. They are just $2 at Walmart, $2.04 at Target so it's not a bad deal for a complete breakfast, in my opinion. Just watch the sodium! I wouldn't eat them daily, but once or twice a week in replacement of some other less healthy choices isn't bad.
Have you tried these what do you think?
