In an effort to cater to the growing number of consumers cutting back on carbs, Jimmy Dean has debuted breadless egg sandwiches. In light of the new product, the chain is going a step further to petition the Merriam-Webster dictionary to change the definition of "sandwich" to include bread-free varieties.
Planned just ahead of National Sandwich Day, Jimmy Dean is calling on the dictionary to change its definition of sandwich to one that is more inclusive of breadless options such as the cain's new Egg'wiches. Unlike traditional egg sandwiches, the Egg'wiches feature various meats and cheese flanked by two egg frittatas. The result is a low-carb, high protein version of a classic breakfast sandwich.
For those who agree that the term sandwich should include breadless options, there is an online petition currently up on change.org.
