Johnsonville Rolls Out New Fully Cooked Breakfast Links

Original Recipe, Turkey and Vermont Maple Syrup Offer Consumers Flavor Varieties

Summary

Johnsonville Sausage is expanding its breakfast sausage offering to include fully cooked breakfast links, appearing in refrigerated meat sections of grocery stores nationwide now.

Johnsonville Fully Cooked Breakfast Links retail for $3.99 for 12 links (or 9.6 oz.), and are available in three flavors: Original Recipe, Vermont Maple Syrup and Turkey (featuring 70% less fat). Made with premium cuts of pork and a signature spice blend, the new Johnsonville breakfast links are easily prepared by warming up in the microwave for 30 seconds. “Not only are the new Johnsonville Fully Cooked Breakfast links convenient to prepare, but they’re a hearty breakfast option that’s gluten free and a good source of protein, giving consumers a great start to their day,” said Valerie Zanchettin, a senior brand manager with Johnsonville. Two links of the Original Recipe or Vermont Maple Syrup provide consumers with seven grams of protein, while the Turkey links offer eight grams.

Unlike other fully cooked breakfast sausage brands, Johnsonville’s new Fully Cooked Breakfast Sausage links can be found in a unique resealable and clear packaging, so shoppers can observe the meat quality and freshness. The zipper also makes portioning easy and keeps the sausage fresher during storage.

On the company’s website are more than a dozen new breakfast recipes – such as a microwave sausage, egg and potato scramble prepared in a coffee cup and a breakfast sausage grilled cheese sandwich – that offer convenient and creative ways to use the new fully cooked breakfast links.
