A pancake breakfast sandwich, yes please! I would want to have that every morning. That’s essentially what McDonald’s McGriddle is. Make delicious fluffy pancakes with maple syrup incorporated in them and sandwich it between sausage, eggs, or even bacon. 

Ingredients

For the pancakes:

  • 1/2 package of Bisquick
  • 1/2 Cup milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 Cup pancake syrup

For the McGriddle sandwich:

  • 10 Ounces sausage, formed into a patties

Directions

For the pancakes:

Combine the pancakes according to package directions. Once the batter is mixed, add in the maple syrup and combine well. Cook the pancakes on a griddle for about 6 minutes on each side. Once you see bubbles forming around the edge and the middle, the pancake is ready to be turned.

For the McGriddle sandwich:

Cook the patties on medium-high heat for 4 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Remove from pan and drain on a paper towel.

To form sandwich, put a sausage patty in between two pancakes and enjoy. 

Sausage Shopping Tip

Try to use fresh sausage whenever you can; they are full of flavor and don't have the high level of preservatives and nitrates that packaged sausage has.

Sausage Cooking Tip

Fresh sausage should be cooked to an internal temperature of 160 degrees.

Sausage Wine Pairing

Pinot noir, gamay, merlot, zinfandel, carménère, pinotage, or grenache with grilled, roasted, or other simply cooked chicken; chardonnay, pinot gris/grigio, pinot blanc, or chenin blanc with chicken in cream or light tomato sauce or with chicken crêpes or croquettes; sauvignon blanc or sémillon with fried chicken; viognier with spiced chicken dishes.
