Johnsonville Grillers

I received complimentary Johnsonville Grillers through Crowdtap to facilitate a review. This review is 100% honest from my heart (& tummy).

Check out my Johnsonville Grillers review on their website with the other Grillers available:


I don’t sugar coat it, I tell it how it is.

j5Johnsonville Grillers are pretty tasty for being a frozen pork product playing as a burger!

I was hesitant to try these because the ingredients are a bit crazy and daunting to look at, the nutrition is horrible, and the flavors didn’t appeal to me tremendously.

Nevertheless, I gave these a go by broiling them and eating them with garlic bread. I was pleasantly surprised! These cooked better than a frozen burger to me, they got some color and they are pre-smoked, so it tastes like you’re bite into a “real grill”-type of bite.









I actually found these taste exactly like bacon pulled from a bacon cheeseburger. I would like to shave these down and top them on a real beef burger because that would be the perfect combination of cheese & bacon.

I actually plated mine with garlic bread and a potato. These were a heavier bite for me, so I would have preferred a salad or something light with them. The garlic bread brought out a nice combination of flavors and I know they had a Steakhouse and Onion flavor that would probably marry well with the garlic bread.

j2 I wouldn’t put these directly on a bun, some people might, I just don’t eat bread that often. I prefer it with a beef burger or a hot dog, but this pork wouldn’t have been appetizing for me.

It’s definitely not kosher as it’s 100% pork cuts, so be wary of your consumers when you take for a BBQ. These are perfect to take for a regular BBQ and as I said, you could make a box last a while if you cut them down once they are cooked. They don’t lose water like frozen burgers, they actually plumped up to me because the cheese expanded.

I would definitely recommend them for pork lovers out there. Be aware that the website also indicates that these are best consumed prior to 30 days of freezing. After 30 days, I guess they lose some flavor; so, don’t stock up on these, only buy when you’re ready to use. I found that interesting as I don’t deal with much frozen pork product and never really gave much thought to the tenderloins I throw in the freezer. Let me know if you tried any of the other flavors!



Johnsonville Fully Cooked Sausages

Ready to start a great morning!

Ready to start a great morning!

I’m a member of the Crowdtap Johnsonville rewards program, and Johnsonville sent me a sample of its Johnsonville Fully Cooked Breakfast Sausage Links to review.

I was thrilled when I was chosen for this mission because I love all of Johnsonville products and had missed the opportunity to try the meatballs. I have to admit I was hesitant because anything cooked and preserved has a short shelf life and it made me nervous to see these last for a couple weeks. I reviewed the ingredients and found nothing too alarming which was a pleasant surprise, the only thing I didn’t like was the corn syrup. It’s not high fructose, so I said all right and grabbed the originals.

30 seconds to the taste of Sunday brunch on a weekday!

Yum, they smell yummy!

I used them the next morning by popping them in the microwave while my bread toasted. The sausages were ready before the toast! I put them in a paper towel and started my morning commute.

They were so easy that I could see myself using these in quite a pinch for other uses like quick sausage-spiced tacos or to add to a quick egg casserole for br-inner.

The taste in the Original recipe is a sweeter sausage because of the corn syrup. They would go amazingly well with waffles or french toast because of the sweetness.

I found using them for quick breakfasts was a huge time saver and kept me eating a balanced breakfast despite how late I wake up…

Woke up super late.... these will definitely become a staple in the fridge!
