Timed with October’s celebration of National Sausage Month, Sara Lee Corp. said it introduced Jimmy Dean Hearty Sausage Crumbles, a "quicker and easier way to add perfectly-seasoned, hearty sausage to breakfast favorites."

Officials said the three new refrigerated products come fully cooked and are ready in minutes (just heat and eat). Varieties include Original, Hot, and Turkey

"We listened to our consumers and heard loud and clear that during the hectic mornings they are in need of mess free, hassle free breakfast solutions that will help them prepare hearty, substantial meals for their big days and every day. Through Jimmy Dean Hearty Sausage Crumbles, we’ve created an easy, new way to add delicious flavor and protein to any breakfast dish,” said Daryl Gormley, vice president breakfast and snacking, Sara Lee North American Retail. “This new addition to the kitchen arsenal will allow families to spend less time prepping and more time enjoying a home-cooked meal together that will help ensure a great start to their day.”

Hearty Sausage Crumbles come in a re-sealable zipper pouch and kept in the fridge -- ready for quick breakfast eggs, omelets or breakfast burritos. Likewise, the product doubles as a ready ingredient for tacos, stuffing, pizza, pasta and more, officials said.

Sara Lee said Jimmy Dean Hearty Sausage Crumbles are available nationwide in grocers' refrigerated breakfast section.
