I’ve never actually had a McDonald’s McGriddle sandwich. I don’t think I need to get into why, but even when I did eat that kind of stuff, I never thought to order the McGriddle (slash let’s be real, I was all about Taco Bell back then)… Judge away! Maybe a little too indulgent for my breakfast palette? Not sure.

Anyway, I’m in New York visiting friends and family for the week, so I wanted to make Mike and I a fun breakfast before I departed. He’s been wanting my take on this breakfast sandwich for quite some time now, so I decided to go for it. Let me tell you, it definitely did not disappoint. Maybe we can get him to comment here {hint hint}, but he, my trusty and honest taste-tester, really did say it was better than the real thing. PLUS, it’s made with my protein pancakes, organic farm fresh eggs, and nitrate-free bacon. Take that, McDonald’s!

McGriddle9I went for pure syrup. I think next time I’ll go with a little grass-fed butter instead!
