Most days, it feels like the main part of my job as a mom to three growing boys is keeping them fed! My kids are 16, 13 and 9 and they have big appetites. On top of that, they each attend different schools with different starting times. They need food fast, especially in the mornings when time is short and everyone is hungry. One of their go-to breakfast items are Jimmy Dean Breakfast sandwiches.
Jimmy Dean breakfast sandwiches are a great-tasting option that provides weekend breakfast taste in weekday time. My boys just aren't as satisfied with a cold bowl of cereal as they are with a hot breakfast, especially during the cold winter months. Neither my husband nor I have the time to cook a hot breakfast for them each and every morning. Jimmy Dean sandwiches offer busy families a quick and easy way to enjoy a delicious, warm breakfast from the microwave with less than 3 minutes of prep time. And these sandwiches are easily portable. My boys have been known to eat these sandwiches while waiting at the bus stop, or in the car, waiting in the drop off line at the elementary school.
My boys' favorite sandwich is the Sausage, Egg and Cheese Croissant sandwich. The buttery croissant makes this quick meal feel decadent and taste delicious. The sausage, egg and cheese provide a ton of flavor and protein. I feel good knowing they are ready for a productive morning of learning. Even my pickiest eater loves these sandwiches. It makes food shopping easier for me because I know that I am stocking my freezer with foods that they will eat and can prepare themselves.
I love that my youngest guy, at 9 years old, can prepare a hot breakfast for himself. I am usually busy getting myself ready for the day while he prepares his breakfast. This is a win-win parenting situation. His independence grows and I actually get to take a shower in peace.
My husband, Billy, and I have been watching our calories. Currently, our Jimmy Dean sandwich of choice is the English Muffin with Canadian Bacon, Egg and Cheese. At just 240 calories, it sets the stage for a healthy day. The sandwiches offer a good source of protein to help you get a satisfying start to the day. Even our dog, Forrest, loves the smell of these sandwiches and hopes for a leftover morsel to be thrown his way. Sorry Forrest, these are too good to share!
