The best thing about making McDonald’s breakfast at home is that you control all of your ingredients. You can even put little twists in the recipes if you’d like. If you’re looking to make McGriddle sandwiches at home, the secret to making the pancake bread is putting the syrup inside the batter — that’s how McDonald’s gives their unique sandwich their sweet syrup taste without the stickiness. Use your delicious pancakes as bread and load up on eggs, American or Cheddar cheese, and bacon.
