I was out at the store last night looking for something to make for dinner. I found something in the freezer section of the store and started to look for something to go with it before I remembered I had dinner rolls at home.
During my search for a side dish, I happened to walk past the breakfast section and noticed sausage breakfast bowls from the brand Great Value. Since we had a limited selection of breakfast items at home and I have always loved breakfast bowls like this from other brands, I decided to buy a couple of them (one for me and one for my wife).
As was usually the case whenever I have purchased other Great Value items, the main attraction was the price. I could have purchased my regular brand (Jimmy Dean). But, this one was about 20 cents less and it didn’t look like there was any difference between the two.
It turns out I was right and this really did prove to be a great value.
I made my breakfast bowl first thing this morning because our youngest daughter was still in bed and I hoped to eat something before she woke up and I had to tend to her and then go to work. She ended up sleeping in so it wasn’t really a necessary. But, this product proved to be great for people in a rush. I just had to poke a hole in the plastic and microwave it for 2 minutes. I didn’t even bother with the second step on the box, the one that says to uncover it, stir and cook for another minute, because it was already fully heated.
I don’t know if I can say this brand of breakfast bowl was any better than the Jimmy Dean brand or any of the other more expensive brands out there. But, I can say I didn’t notice any less quality from this brand than the others.
It might have used a bit too much cheese because the eggs and potatoes were sticking together a bit. But, overall, it was a decent breakfast. The food had a nice taste to it and even the eggs (which usually are a bit rubbery when it comes to microwave dinners like this) weren’t too terrible.
The Great Value breakfast bowl also proved to be very filling. I didn’t think it would at first because it looked like it lacked quantity. But, it was a satisfying breakfast that easily lasted me until lunch.
If you are looking for a hot breakfast idea that doesn’t cost too much and gives you your money’s worth, I would recommend this product.
