I’ve learned to really love and enjoy breakfast. Prior to joining Weight Watchers, breakfast was a distant memory. I never ate breakfast and if I did fall into a breakfast habit it was always a McDonald’s or Dunkin Donuts specialty. These days McDonald’s and Dunkin Donuts breakfasts are a distant memory and filling and point friendly breakfasts are on the menu.
This particular meal was a product of a few leftovers. Jimmy Dean breakfast sausages from “brinner” (breakfast for dinner) the night before and a serving of Trader Joe’s Roasted Potatoes with Peppers and Onions.To tie it all together, I scrambled up ½ cup of egg substitute, seasoned with pepper, salt and spices.
The greatest part about this meal is the fact that aside from it being filling, it was only 4 points plus values!One of the Jimmy Dean breakfast sausage patties is 1 points plus, a serving (3/4 cup) of Trader Joe’s Roasted Potatoes with Peppers and Onions is 2 points plus values and the ½ cup of egg substitute is 1 points plus values.
I picked up a box of the Jimmy Dean Turkey Sausage Patties while at Walmart to have them for dinner (aka brinner).I usually buy larger sausage patties to make sandwiches, but these looked good and I had heard good things about the Jimmy Dean turkey sausage line.
Cooking them up (well, really only heating them through and browning them a bit) was simple.Taste wise they really reminded me of regular pork sausage patties. They had that “fatty” flavor that comes with pork sausage, but without all the fat and calories in typical pork sausage. These weren’t greasy feeling nor did they make me have a stomachache (as some full-fat products sometimes do).They also don’t have a real turkey flavor to them – they taste more like pork sausage, which is interesting.Enjoying the sausage with eggs and toast really made a very filling meal.
A serving size is 2 sausages which calculate out to 3 points plus values or you can have 1 sausage patty for 1 points plus value.Two thumbs up!
