Yesterday morning we experimented a little bit with our breakfast. Have you ever had a McGriddle sandwich? I think I have once a long time ago, but I try not to eat much for fast food because one, it's not good for you and two, cooking at home always tastes so much better!
The kids always want pancakes and the such for breakfast, while my hubby likes his eggs and meat. To satisfy everyone I decided we'd try making our own version of these sandwiches. Everyone pitched in with the prep work and they were pretty darn good. The kids mostly picked theirs apart as I expected. I think if I could get the pancakes to be a little bit thicker we would have liked them even more, but overall they were something different for breakfast and very easy to put together. I even tried swirling some syrup in the pancake batter while they were cooking. You should definitely give these a try, I think you'll like them!
Homemade McGriddle Sandwiches
2 c flour
2 tbsp sugar
4 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 1/2 c milk
1/2 c oil
Sausage patties, cooked (bacon would work well too)
Scrambled or fried egg
Cheese, if desired
Combine all ingredients for pancake batter in a medium sized bowl and mix together. Over a heated griddle, drop small amounts of batter to make silver dollar sized pancakes. Immediately pour a small amount of syrup onto batter, once bubbles form flip over and cook until other side is done.
To assemble: Taking 2 pancakes, sandwich an egg, sausage patty and slice of cheese between them. You add a small amount of syrup inside or just serve extra alongside the plate for dipping. Simple as that....enjoy!
Look what's sitting on my table waiting to be used up?! I've got 14 lbs. of pears that I picked up this weekend. I'm waiting for them to ripen just a little bit more before I get to work. I'm planning on making some pear sauce but other than I'm not sure yet. Any ideas? I'm definitely open for suggestions!
