Are Odom's Tennessee Pride Sausage And Buttermilk Biscuits any good?

Yes, in moderation of course! These biscuits are a perfect mix of sweet and savory and ready in less than 60 seconds. For a grab and go snack from the freezer they’re a good choice.

Reading the packet in the store seems also too good to be true; 45 seconds from box to microwave to belly. For those bleary eyed mornings where only a hit of salty and sugary will suffice – the allure of these frozen sausage biscuits is undeniable. Several fast food chains offer similar products, but you could have these right from your freezer without ever putting on pants – you know the kind of day I’m talking about.

So how do they stack up? Surprisingly well! The first taste is a surprisingly sweet donut-esque sugariness, that in turn is quickly joined by the salty savory sausage. The sweet and savory mix is quite enjoyable, though for me personally, they are ever so slightly too sweet.

I’ve only cooked these in the microwave and they hold true to the packaging. I cook them for 75 seconds rather than the advised 45 seconds as my microwave is older. As you’d expect they are somewhat soggy and claggy cooked using this method. I’m sure you could get much better results using the oven cooking method (see below, requires defrosted biscuit first).

The biggest negative for these biscuits, is as you’d expect, the nutrition (see below). Nothing with this much taste comes without a cost. Here that price is 330 calories for a serving of two biscuits, with a total of nearly half your day’s saturated fat intake. Of course, as part of a balanced diet and time to time treat, these are plenty fine. I think I’ll always have a few on hand for that Sunday morning from hell.

Odom’s Tennessee Pride Sausage And Buttermilk Biscuits – what’s in the box?

In this particular bundling of the product, inside the cardboard packaging come 12 biscuits, wrapped two per plastic bag. Two is just about perfect for a breakfast boost.

Odom’s Tennessee Pride Sausage And Buttermilk Biscuits – what’s a fair price?

I paid $5.49 for this box of 12 biscuits. Given that I’ll likely eat these slowly over time, 2 for breakfast when I need a jolt to start my day, that works out to 92c per breakfast. I’ll take that any day, especially when you compare with the equivalent fast food prices.

Hi I’m Stuart., amateur home cook and professional food writer.  You can find my writing at places like The Salt Lake Tribune and Gastronomic SLC, which I founded more than a decade ago.  As well as writing extensively about restaurants, I’m endlessly curious about that product on the shelf. Is it any good I wonder? If you’re like me, wonder no more.

Tried this? Let us know what you think!
