Tyson Foods is adding plant-based breakfast sandwiches to its Jimmy Dean product line.
The largest US meat company recently launched its Jimmy Dean Plant-based Patty, Egg & Cheese Croissant Sandwich, featuring a plant-based patty made from soy protein, egg whites, and American Cheese. Tyson is also launching a Jimmy Dean Delights Plant-based Patty & Frittata Sandwich featuring a vegetable-based patty, the company’s proprietary blend, made with soy protein, black beans, brown rice, quinoa topped with a spinach and egg white frittata and cheese served on an English muffin
Both will be available at grocery stores nationwide this spring. It’s not the first time Jimmy Dean served up a meat alternative, according to Fox News. In 2019, it released a burger blended with meat and pea protein in addition to plant-based nuggets.
Fast-food chains have started adding meatless menu options from companies like Beyond Meat and Impossible foods from plant-based burgers to meatless egg sandwiches in recent years. In 2019, Burger King released its meatless Impossible Whopper, while McDonald’s will launch its McPlant Burger this year.
