RIP Jimmy Dean.

In 1969, Jimmy Dean and his brother started Jimmy Dean Sausage. Jimmy sold Jimmy Dean to Sara Lee in the 80s, but he stayed on as the spokesperson of the company until he was let go because of his age in 2004. Growing up in the South, Jimmy Dean was pretty much a staple for us for breakfast. We even mix it in with ground beef to make delicious hamburgers. A true food icon has passed...
