Having breakfast for dinner is a family favorite in our house. I include it on our menu at least twice a month. Recently I decided to give some Homemade McGriddles a try. They quickly became a favorite. These little McGriddle type sandwiches are very versatile, I served them for dinner one night along with breakfast stew and some fruit, and also made them a couple times for Sunday morning breakfast. Be sure to make extras too, they keep well and make a quick breakfast when you are in a hurry.

Directions:

  • Make a batch of silver dollar (small) pancakes, I use this recipe
  • Slice and cook sausage patties or cook some bacon in the oven like Jen does (this works great, I’ve been cooking bacon this way ever since her post)
  • Scramble 1 egg at a time in a bowl, then fry, trying to keep the eggs from spreading (I need to get one of those handy cookie cutter type egg holders)
  • Assemble pancake, egg, sausage or bacon, add a slice of cheese and top with another pancake

I’m glad my family enjoys having breakfast type food for dinner, it’s not only delicious, but it’s a frugal meal too, depending on how much meat you serve. I keep the cost of the meal around $5, but sometimes a little higher if we add bacon.

Additional notes: I forgot to add that sometimes I add syrup to the pancakes while they are cooking (Thanks Connie for reminding me). And, the breakfast stew link takes you to the breakfast tacos recipe, I use the same recipe, I just don’t put the mixture in the tortilla shells.

    Thanks for your website – I’ve been coming here often and have found great recipes! Can’t wait to try the “Breakfast Stew”. I love quick and easy breakfasts to go – and I’ve been making HOMEMADE Egg McMuffins, Sausage and Egg Biscuits and McGriddles for awhile now!! I even make double and triple batches occassionally and freeze them – leave the cheese off for freezing, then add it after a quick re-heat in the microwave – before we head out the door! Instead of scrambling or frying one egg at a time, I’ve been using small microwave proof ramekins, covered w/ a wet paper towel – they are the perfect size to cook eggs giving them that “poached” look (you could also scramble them)….I can cook up to 6 at a time in 30 second increments until done to our liking….it usually takes 5 minutes or less and they can cook while you assemble the other parts!

    I make these quite frequently. I scramble my eggs and put them in a greased muffin tin. Then I bake them in the oven until set (350F for 10-15 min until set) Then I asseble them and wrap in paper towel. Put these in a freezer ziploc bag with directions on how to reheat in microwave (1 min flip then 30 sec-1 min). My kids eat these many mornings for breakfast.

    Oh my, can’t believe I’m just finding this. I ate a McGriddle sandwich almost every day when I was pregnant. (Note: I don’t recommend this, but it seemed like a great idea at the time:) The thing that does it for me is the maple flavor in the pancakes. I will have to experiment and see if I can get this. If you don’t mind squares, another way to cook your eggs is to just bake them. I use a 9×9 pan (lined with my magic no-stick foil), scramble about 9-11 eggs, dump and bake. I cut into 9 squares and use them for egg mcmuffin sandwiches.

    This sounds great! I have those egg ring things and they are handy, but they don’t always contain all of the egg. It still does a better job then just trying to do it without one (I also have a tiny skillet that is the perfect size to make an egg for an English muffin – not sure one could really justify the cost or storage for only being able to make one at a time).
