These are undeniably one of my guiltiest pleasures. If I could start every day with two of these patties – suitably sun drenched in morning light as you see here – I would. Sadly, I don’t think my doctor would be all that happy. These little puck sized patties are replete with copious amounts of saturated fat and salt. There’s a reason they taste as good as they do. The recommend serving of two patties is nearly 50% of a days total saturated fat intake. Hot damn.
Inside the exterior cardboard packaging they come eight to a box as you can see below. They’re packaged in shrink wrap/vacuum sealed plastic in essentially two pouches, four to a pouch. When you open one of the pouches there’s no way to reseal.
Here’s the cooked product, again highlighted with the morning sun. After that, a shot with my most favorite way to plate these, a perfectly running egg:
After all if you’re like me, you’re buying these to replicate a McD’s breakfast sandwich right at home. I actually prefer the Jimmy Dean’s creation over the Golden Arches, it’s slightly less overpowering in terms of herby flavor and fattiness.
Given the aforementioned nutrition I tend to limit myself to one per serving these days. A toasted muffin, runny egg, and a hit of salt and unctuous fat – perfect start to a day.

Does anyone cook these any other way than a quick reheat in the microwave? If I’m missing a trick with pan cooking let me know, I can’t imagine the fuss and mess of pan cooking results in any worthwhile gains flavorwise?
Are Jimmy Dean Fully Cook Pork Sausage Patties any good?
Our verdict? Yes, a solid 4/5 for these little patties of salt and fat. If you’re fine with the less than stellar nutrition, the flavor is a great start to any day.
