Jimmy Dean D-Lights Turkey Sausage Croissants
Posted on Friday, November 11th, 2011
This has got to be one of the most filling, low-calorie healthy breakfasts to come out of the freezer. I’m a big fan of Jimmy D’s and D-lights products, and this one did not last long in my household. We’ve bought three boxes since, which come with four breakfast sandwiches (about the same size as something you’d get at McDonald’s). One box costs about $5 to $6. The sandwich is made with one turkey sausage patty, an egg white, and cheese in between a really tasty croissant. I think the croissant is my favorite part, but overall, the entire sandwich is a winner - flavorful and juicy.
I repeat –this reduced fat croissant does not taste like it came out of a freezer.
Follow the Directions
There is a reason companies print cooking directions on their packaging. It is so you can enjoy the flavor, quality, taste and texture of a product – the way it is meant for you to. So, when it says to wrap the frozen sandwich in a paper towel and cook for 1 minute 30 seconds on 30% power, and then for 55-60 seconds on HIGH – they mean it. It does not mean – cook for 3 minutes on HIGH because you will end up with what my stepson did…hard bread and a cheesy plate. Now… the only suggestion I would make is if you have a low-wattage microwave – repeat the step that cooks the sandwich for 1 minute 30 seconds on 30% power.
Now, that we have that out of the way, the Jimmy Dean’s croissant sandwich fits nicely into a low-calorie, healthy breakfast meal plan…
