Tom Brady says the tradition of his grandma’s biscuits ‘lives on’ in his house

It appears that the TB12 method may have been brushed aside in favor of a Brady family tradition on Thursday.

After a limited practice Thanksgiving morning due to an Achilles tendon injury, Patriots quarterback Tom Brady hit the kitchen to whip up a batch of a holiday favorite: his grandmother’s biscuits. Brady shared a photo of the overflowing plate on Instagram.

“As a young boy, my favorite part of every holiday was eating my Grandma’s biscuits,” he wrote. “The first question I would ask when I walked into her apartment was ‘Grandma, did you make biscuits for me’ … And of course, she always did.”


“She is resting in Heaven now but she would be happy to know that her tradition lives on in our house,” Brady continued. “My biscuits don’t taste nearly as good as hers but after being smothered in butter and syrup, it’s tougher to know the difference!”

When asked if he got a chance to try one of Brady’s famous biscuits, Rob Gronkowski told reporters on Friday that he hadn’t yet, despite putting in an request.

“He was bragging about them today,” Gronk said. “I told him to bring some in, and he said, ‘Oh, they were so good. They were all eaten.’ So I told him to make some more.”

According to the tight end, Brady better find some time to bake another batch because “if he doesn’t bring some in, there’s going to be some problems.”
