McDonald’s buttermilk biscuit breakfast sandwich review.

McDonald’s buttermilk biscuit breakfast sandwich review.

Buttermilk biscuits are here at my local McDonald’s so I decided to give them a try.

Let’s start of by saying there is a Bacon one with a fold of egg, and Sausage another.

Just as the name says it’s buttermilk biscuit, I don’t like buttermilk so I was skeptical.

The top of the buttermilk biscuit which is very buttery, very flaky more on this later.

McDonald’s decided not to put any type of sauce on these buttermilk biscuits that was a bad idea, as this was the plainest breakfast sandwich I have ever had.

The first one I had was the sausage buttermilk biscuit which was the best out of the two; because it had a good seasoning on the sausage. The biscuit crumbled to pieces, which was a disappointment.

The bacon buttermilk biscuit was even worse than the sausage buttermilk biscuit; there was no sauce, the biscuit fell apart, and was way too buttery and bacon had no flavour at all. I could not even eat half of my bacon buttermilk biscuit.

The price of these buttermilk biscuits were $2.69 as of writing, which isn’t bad. McDonald’s also sells just buttermilk biscuits for a dollar each, but I don’t suggest those.

Now for the pictures!

    I couldn’t agree more… with one exception… I’d be hesitant to say that the sausage one was the better one. They’re both so awful it’s hard to say which is actually better. I would agree that at least the “juice” from the sausage made it easier to eat, but when you can barely chew it, and you can’t swallow it without several large gulps of coffee, there’s something fundamentally wrong.

    I had the same experience as you… too crumbly, too buttery, and it looked just as appetizing as your photos. Did you try peeling the cheese away from the bun? McDonald’s makes some pretty nasty stuff, but their breakfasts are usually not too bad: the burrito, the BLT Bagel, the McGriddles… they’re not that bad at all. But this thing is just a disaster.

    It’s like eating a cup of dried flour with a rubbery egg and leftover meat. If it weren’t for the pasty glue keeping it together, I wouldn’t have known it had cheese at all.

      McDonald’s cheese is oily play dough.

    I’ve refrained from the buttermilk sandwiches for about a month till I decided to give them a try this morning. LOVED THEM. The biscuits alone taste incredible. The eggs/cheese mix was very tasteful. The only downside was the fact they are VERY fattening. 590 calories? That’s more than a Big Mac.

    But I loved the buttermilk biscuits, nonetheless. The fact I had a “buy one get one” free coupon made them even better.

      Well at least someone liked them :)

    I can not speak for the bacon, not my thing. The sausage and egg is excellent. Perhaps they have changed the recipe or who knows what, but the biscuit is moist AND flaky without being crumbly. The sausage is wonderfully and noticeably spiced and juicy and the egg is fluffy and tasty. Perhaps some McD’s prepare them better than others?

      It is possible that some McDonalds do make better buttermilk biscuits.

    Biscuits are supposed to crumble, you fucking tool. They’re biscuits.
