My McDonald’s McGriddle Dupe with Homemade Turkey Sausage

Discover the ultimate homemade McGriddle dupe with turkey sausage, fried eggs, and pancakes made on your griddle for a quick, delicious breakfast treat!

I’m in my griddle outdoor cooking era, and let me tell you, prepare to be absolutely sick of me and my griddle antics. Today, I’m thrilled to share my latest creation—a homemade McGriddle dupe featuring turkey sausage, fried eggs, and the fluffiest pancakes. Trust me, this is a game-changer for your breakfast routine!

So, what’s the secret to this homemade McGriddle masterpiece? It’s all about simplicity and quality ingredients. Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 1 cup Pancake mix: Krusteaz or nothing, people! It’s the golden standard.
  • 2 Eggs: A couple of those golden beauties.
  • 1/4 lb Ground turkey sausage: Homemade goodness, seasoned to perfection.
  • 2 slices American cheese: The melty magic that brings it all together.
  • Maple syrup: Because what’s a McGriddle without that sweet, sweet syrup?
  1. Pancakes First:
    • Preheat your griddle to medium-high heat. (Outdoors if you’re living your best griddle life like me!)
    • Mix up your pancake batter according to the Krusteaz package. Pour the batter onto the griddle, making small, McGriddle-sized pancakes (best if you use a silocone mold). Cook until bubbles form on the surface, then flip and cook until golden brown.
  2. Turkey Sausage:
    • While the pancakes are doing their thing, grab that ground turkey sausage. Form it into patties about the same size as your pancakes.
    • Cook the sausage patties on the griddle until they’re browned and cooked through, about 4-5 minutes per side. The smell alone will have you drooling.
  3. Eggs:
    • Crack a couple of eggs onto the griddle. Fry them up to your liking—whether you’re a runny yolk fan or prefer them cooked through, it’s all good.
    • Tip: Use a round egg ring for that classic McGriddle look!
  4. Cheese, Please:
    • Once everything is cooked, it’s time to assemble. Place a slice of American cheese on the bottom pancake. Top with the turkey sausage, then the egg, and finish with another pancake.
  5. Maple Syrup Magic:
    • Drizzle (or douse) with maple syrup. Seriously, don’t be shy—this is what makes it a McGriddle!
Yield: 2 McGriddles
