Sweet & Savory Breakfast Sandwich (a.k.a. The Paleo McGriddle)



About a week ago, I thought I was a total genius for coming up with the idea to make a paleo version of the McGriddle Breakfast Sandwich from McDonalds.

I began working on my “genius” experiment today, spending most of my morning developing a pancake bun and sausage recipe, attempting to photograph the finished product, and then devouring it (with some help from my family).

And right as I sat down to write this post, I decided that it would probably be a good idea to google “Paleo McGriddle” — just to make sure it hadn’t been done before.

Turns out it has. Multiple times (with much more success).

But instead of throwing all of my hard work out the window, I decided to go ahead and post the recipe anyway. Becase even though it’s a totally imperfect, messy, less exact version of the McGriddle, I still think it tastes pretty darn good. And I’m hoping you will too!

  6. 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  7. 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  3. Grease pan with coconut oil and place over medium-low heat.

  5. Sprinkle blueberries over the pancakes and flip when bubbles/holes appear on the surface.

      And I’m pretty sure my first ever experience with a paleo breakfast (besides standard bacon & eggs) was the paleo french toast you made me awhile back!! Still such a great dish!
