Stopping at McDonald’s in the morning is always a treat. You can grab something sweet like a delicious yogurt parfait with vanilla Greek yogurt, crunchy granola, and berries, or indulge in a McGriddle with fluffy eggs, savory bacon or sausage, melty cheese, and sweet pancake “bread.” If you want a healthy alternative, try their maple brown sugar and fruit oatmeal with strawberries, blueberries, and raisins. There are so many breakfast options to choose from, many of which you can recreate right in your own kitchen.

McDonald’s McGriddle

What’s better than a McDonald’s Egg McMuffin? A McDonald’s Egg McMuffin served in between two pancakes. When McDonald’s introduced the McGriddle to menus of various countries in 2003, people were more than excited to try this new take on the breakfast sandwich, and the company made the smart decision to introduce it to all of their menus. Though this sandwich receives flack for its health content — a pancake-wrapped breakfast is a bit decadent — it remains one of McDonald’s most-loved menu items. —Megan Byrne For the McDonald’s McGriddle recipe, click here.
