Pancake Breakfast Sandwiches

Breakfast foods will probably always reign supreme on my top favorite foods to eat at any point in the day.

Because of this, I am always on the hunt for new recipes and new ways to shake up our menu.

Last weekend, I set out to recreate McDonald’s infamous McGriddle sandwiches. This is what I came up with, and boy, did they not disappoint.

Pancake Breakfast Sandwiches

Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and coat the paper with cooking spray.

In a large bowl, whisk 8 eggs, 1/2 cup of milk, 1/2 teaspoon salt and pepper. Pour it on the sheet pan and bake until the eggs are set, about 15 to 17 minutes.

Meanwhile, whisk the flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt in a large bowl.

In a separate bowl whisk some milk, eggs, and vanilla. Stir the milk mixture into the flour mixture until halfway combined.

Melt a couple tablespoons of butter and add it to the bowl and stir until incorporated completely.

Melt some butter on a griddle over medium-low heat. In batches, drop about 2 tablespoons of batter onto the griddle for each pancake.

Fry the pancakes on both sides until golden brown, about 2 minutes per side. Repeat with remaining batter, set aside, and keep warm.

To make the maple butter: in a medium bowl, combine softened butter and maple syrup.

Stir to combine with a rubber spatula.

Pull out the eggs from the oven, once set.

Slice the eggs into 6 squares. After about 5 minutes, peel the egg squares off of the parchment.
