Johnsonville Launches New Breakfast Sausage Lineup for Foodservice

Johnsonville is now offering foodservice operators the chance to grow their breakfast sales with the launch of its first-ever, premium breakfast sausage lineup designed specifically for the foodservice industry.

Johnsonville’s new premium breakfast sausage portfolio includes:

 * Fully Cooked Links available in Original, Maple and Turkey varieties (in .8 oz. weight);

* Ready-to-Cook Links, available in Maple and Original varieites (2.0 and .8 oz. weight);

* Fully Cooked Patties, available in Original and Turkey (2.0 and 1.5 oz. weight)

Johnsonville breakfast products are prepared using a higher meat-to-fat ratio, which provides a better yield, less shrinkage after cooking, and better overall flavor and texture.
