Sheboygan Falls, Wisconsin, USA-based Johnsonville Foodservice has launched its first-ever, premium breakfast sausage line designed specifically for the foodservice sector. The new offerings feature fully cooked eight-ounce links available in original, maple and turkey varieties; ready-to-cook two-ounce and eight-ounce links in maple and original flavors; and fully cooked two-ounce and 1.5-ounce patties in original and turkey varieties.
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. Thanks to a no-compromise production process, the sausages have superior holding times in the kitchen, in a grab-and-go displays, also been and in buffet settings.
Made with premium cuts of pork or turkey, Johnsonville products have become a popular choice in many home kitchens for generations. The 75-year-old family-owned company has built a reputation as a preferred breakfast sausage brand in the retail environment, backed by research revealing that 70% of US consumers polled in April of 2019 described Johnsonville breakfast sausage as “craveable.”
“It’s our goal for foodservice operators who add Johnsonville products to their menu to benefit from wide consumer appeal while creating a powerful point of difference in the competitive breakfast market segment,” said Craig Yoder, Sr., product marketing manager. “We believe that brand recognition can help operators improve their breakfast traffic and their sales.”
Whether it’s Johnsonville’s sausage links or patties, every fully cooked and ready-to-cook product offered by the company has key quality differences that can set any breakfast menu apart from competitive brands, according to Yoder.
Distributed in frozen form, Johnsonville’s breakfast sausage portfolio is made with premium cuts of pork, all natural pork and turkey, collagen casing and no binders. Also on the list of ingredients strictly excluded from the recipe are high-fructose corn syrup, added MSG, artificial colors or flavoring, and nitrates or nitrites.
