Sausage McGriddles are the perfect delicious sweet and savory breakfast that is not only kid friendly but also great if you need something easy to grab and go!
This treat is the perfect make ahead grab and go breakfast! It is totally kid friendly and definitely something the whole family will enjoy.
This was inspired by my Everything Bagel Dill Cream Cheese Lox Breakfast Sandwich and also pairs super well with my White Chocolate Salted Caramel Latte.
The ingredients are very similar to what you would need for homemade pancakes with a side of sausage!
- baking powder
- sausage patties
See recipe card for quantities.
In a mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar, salt and baking powder. Add in milk and eggs and whisk until well combined.
Turn on the griddle and place the sausage patties on the heated up griddle. Flatten the patties with the back of a spatula lightly so they are about the size of a mason jar lid. Cook until sausage is done.
Place mason jar lid on the griddle with a larger opening touching the griddle. Spray inside the mason jar lid with pam. Spoon pancake batter into the lid until it is halfway full. Pour about a teaspoon of syrup on top of the pancake while the batter is still wet. Once the edges start to look cooked, remove the mason jar lid. Do this carefully because the lid will be hot. Flip the pancake and cook until it is cooked through. Repeat until all of the pancake batter is used.
Assemble your sandwiches using two pancakes with a sausage sandwiched between. Enjoy immediately or save for later.
There are ways you can cater this recipe to specific diets.
- Vegetarian - you can use a plant based sausage patty if you need a vegetarian version of this recipe.
I have an electric griddle for inside and I also have a Blackstone Griddle for outside cooking. Either works great for this recipe! The Blackstone is obviously better if you are making a lot at once, but the electric griddle is great if you are just cooking for the family.
I wouldn't suggest it. While it wouldn't change the flavor, it would be a lot harder to make a sandwich out of it.
You need some type of griddle or griddle pan to put on the stove to make this sausage McGriddle recipe. I use either an electric griddle or my Blackstone griddle if I am making a lot at once. You will also need the typical bowl, whisk and measuring cups to help make this recipe.
These copycat sausage mcgriddles are perfect to save for later. You can store them in a Ziplock and save in the refrigerator for up to 4 days or you can freeze them for up to 4 months. Just make sure you reheat before eating!
When pouring the syrup into the wet part of the pancake batter, pour it in a swirl motion so that you get a little bit in each bite!
