Ingredients You Will Need:

(full amounts in recipe box below)

  • Pancake Mix- This will be used to make your “buns” for the griddles.
  • Syrup- maple syrup will be injected into the pancakes.
  • Sausage Patties- Pork sausage will be used to build the sandwiches. Feel free to change out the protein with crispy bacon, chicken, etc…
  • Eggs- Be sure to use eggs at room temperature. Add in chopped veggies or extra cheese if you prefer for a change.
  • Cheese- You will need American cheese for this recipe.
  • Pepper- This will be used for taste.

How to Make a McGriddle

  • Add a cup of water to the pancake mix and combine.
  • Put the ring of a mason jar into a skillet with the bottom side facing down or the ‘open side of the ring down’.
  • Use oil (or cooking spray) to grease and set the temp to medium.
  • Add in the pancake batter when the right medium heat is reached to about halfway. When bubbles begin to form at about the 60-second mark, take off the ring using tongs.

  • Turn over the pancake to finish cooking the other side.
  • Continue with the rest of the pancake mix or just about 7 more pancakes.
  • Inject the syrup into the finished griddle cakes using a kitchen syringe when the pancakes are cool. (Doing this will mimic the Mcgriddle without it burning)

How to store a Homemade McGriddle 

Mcgriddles are best served almost immediately after making for the best results of taste and texture. Having a warm and fresh sandwich will always be the better way to go. However, you can store these sandwiches in an airtight Ziploc bag or airtight container.

How to reheat These Copycat Breakfast Sandwiches

You will want to reheat these, but also make sure you do not burn them. I would recommend defrosting them in the microwave at first. Then, wrap the sandwiches in a paper towel to allow the heat and moisture to cook the sandwich perfectly.
