“Breakfast habits continue to change as families navigate new routines,” said Chris Olson, senior brand manager for Jimmy Dean. “At the start of 2020, people were cooking every meal at home, including breakfast. Over time, however, peoples’ energy for making multiple fresh meals throughout the day has waned, with 25% of people tired of cooking. The new Jimmy Dean Loaded Sausage Bites and Omelet Minis are the perfect option for those seeking a warm breakfast or snack with the flavors they love without the time-consuming prep and clean-up.”
Jimmy Dean Loaded Sausage Bites and Jimmy Dean Omelet Minis are available in the refrigerated aisle of retail stores nationwide.
The new Sausage Bites and Omelet Minis join Jimmy Dean’s growing portfolio of bite-size breakfast options. In August 2020, the brand launched Jimmy Dean Casserole Bites, and in September 2019, the brand introduced Jimmy Dean Morning Combos.
