School is starting back already, or very soon, for kids around here. Even though my son is out of school now I remember those crazy mornings, especially the first few weeks of back to school season. T was not a morning person in the slightest. Breakfast is so important for the kids though to get them recharged for the day. I was perpetually on the lookout for meals we could take in the car with us or that he could eat while walking on the way to school back in those days.
Jimmy Dean has one super solution, Pancakes and Sausage on a Stick! They look like a corndog, but inside is a savory Jimmy Dean sausage link and the outside is a light and fluffy pancake. Who doesn’t love food on a stick? Disclosure – Jimmy Dean asked me to try this out and I have been compensated but opinions are truly my own.
This is not only great for kids on busy school mornings but for anyone in the family. They take less than 60 seconds to heat up in the microwave and then you are out the door! Hubby does not like to eat breakfast when he first gets up but prefers to wait until he gets to work – these are great for him to grab and go and then heat them up at work with his morning coffee. Even I sometimes am on the go in the morning, because I am not a morning person either, and need something I can take in the car with me on the go on the way to a meeting.
The Jimmy Dean Pancakes and Sausage on a Stick come in four flavors. Original, blueberry, apple cinnamon and very berry. My grocery store only had the apple cinnamon and very berry so that is what I tried – however since I like these I am going to ask my store to carry the original and blueberry as well. I wasn’t sure at first about the pancake part thinking, before I tried them, if they would be tough and chewy but they really aren’t. They are still nice and fluffy but just sturdy enough to not fall apart while you are eating them. The sausage inside was delicious just as Jimmy Dean sausages always are. When I bought these they were $5 per box and each box has 5 pieces in them – that’s just $1 each which I think is very reasonable for a convenience food like this. They also have 6 grams of protein each – we need protein in our breakfasts!
