Not every day can we wake up in the morning and grab a McGriddle sandwich from McDonald’s. Sometimes, we don’t have the time. Other times, we might not have the money.
I’ve seen this recipe in so many ways, but I feel like mine might be the easiest way to make your own at home and on a budget.
I no longer eat at McDonald’s anymore for a number of reasons. The main reason is that I really enjoy my fast food is cooked fresh to order. What can I say? Whataburger has spoiled this Texas girl rotten and, quite honestly, they are better than Mickey D’s. However, one breakfast item I thoroughly enjoyed growing up was the McGriddle.
I start by making my pancakes small and about the same size.
The major key to making these taste exactly like an actual McGriddle from McDonald’s is to drizzle syrup on the uncooked portion of the pancake before flipping it.
Next, I cook my protein of choice. You can use bacon, sausage, ham. Or if you’re vegan, you can use whatever protein suits you. I chose to use Purnell’s Country Sausage. It’s our favorite sausage brand to use. Here’s a link where you can find it! https://itsgooo-od.com/store-locator/
Then, I made my eggs. I chose to let it cook as if I am making an omelet, followed by folding it together, flipping it, and letting it cook through to the doneness I like.
Finally, I stack it together: pancake, cheese, egg, sausage, pancake!
Ingredients + Supplies
- Your favorite pancake mix or pancake recipe (I prefer to use pancake mix because I don’t always have the time to make mine from scratch)
- A protein of your choice (I’ll be using Purnell’s Country Sausage)
- Cheese slices (optional)
- Eggs (optional)
- Skillet or griddle
- Cooking spray
- Preheat your skillet or griddle. If using a griddle, set the temperature to 300°.
- Follow instructions for pancake mix or pancake recipe. Pour batter into a measuring cup for easier mobility. Spray griddle with cooking spray.
- Pour the batter and make small, even circles. Follow the same technique you normally use in making pancakes. Drizzle syrup on the uncooked side of the pancake. Flip and once done, set aside.
- Next, cook your protein. When it is done, then prep your eggs. Prepare them to your liking.
- Build your sandwich with a pancake bottom, cheese, egg, protein, pancake top. You can drizzle more syrup on the top if you like.
