McDonald's McGriddle

McDonald’s McGriddle

1⅔ flour
2 tsp baking powder
2 tbsp sugar
¼ tsp salt
1 large egg
1½ cup milk
½ cup + 2 tablespoons Maple Sugar Crystals*
2 Tablespoons Water
1 tbsp butter
Sausage (either six patties, or ¾ pound of favorite variety)
American cheese
6 eggs
1 cup milk
salt
pepper



In a large bowl, mix together flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt.
In another bowl, whisk together eggs and milk, and then add to flour mixture, and mix until smooth.
In a smaller bowl, mix together ½ cup maple sugar crystals with water, and then mix into batter. Set batter aside.
Heat a griddle or frying pan and cook sausages. It would probably be easiest just to use pre-made patties, but feel free to make your own! Remove from griddle to paper towel and pat away excess grease.
In a bowl, crack eggs and whisk together with 1 cup milk and a few shakes of pepper and salt. If you can get your hands on a rectangle cookie cutter, that will create the most "authentic" McGriddle egg (just pour egg into cookie cutter) or just cook mini omelette style eggs. Cook until eggs are not runny, and carefully move to another plate.
Finally, pour about 3-inch wide, and 1½ inch thick circles of batter onto griddle. The batter should be thick. Sprinkle maple sugar crystals on top of pancakes. Flip as needed, until pancakes are browned and cooked through. Make sure to cook two pancakes for each sandwich.
Assemble like this: Pancake, sausage, cheese, egg, pancake.
*Maple sugar crystals can be hard to find. We had to go to a few different health food stores to find them, but eventually did at Whole Foods.
