While the classic Mini McGriddles recipe is undoubtedly delicious, there are endless variations you can explore to switch things up to add your own spin on this McDonald’s copycat recipe.

Vegetarian Option: For a vegetarian twist, swap out the sausage patties for plant-based alternatives or add sliced avocado for a creamy texture.

Slice of Cheese: You can even incorporate Cheddar cheese, Pepper Jack, or American cheese slices or a drizzle of maple syrup and melted butter for added flavor complexity.

Storing and Making Ahead

Storage: Mini homemade McGriddles are best enjoyed fresh and hot off the griddle. However, if you find yourself with leftovers, you can store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.

Reheating: To reheat, simply microwave the sandwiches for a quick breakfast on the go. While these sandwiches can’t be made too far in advance due to their perishable nature, you can prep the individual components ahead of time and assemble them when ready to serve for a more efficient morning routine.

Common Questions about the McGriddle Recipe

  1. Can I use homemade pancakes instead of frozen ones? Absolutely! Feel free to use your favorite homemade pancake recipe or pancake mix if you prefer a more personal touch to your McGriddles. Feel free to add a bit of maple flavor by adding a little bit of syrup to the pancake batter.
  2. Can I make Mini McGriddles in advance for meal prep? While assembling the sandwiches in advance isn’t recommended, you can prepare the individual components and store them separately until ready to assemble and serve.
