in the words of the ICONIC madison beer, “a sausage-egg mcgriddle will change your f*****g life.” on a recent episode of pretty basic, we asked about her go-to mcdonald’s order and she was shocked to learn that i had never tried one. obviously, i had to rectify this immediately and now i’m obsessed- i had no idea what i was missing! it’s the perfect fix for those unstoppable cravings after a night of drinking, and while i love a drunken fast food moment, i think my homemade version is even better.

for this recipe, i happen to have something called a “plett pan” (also known as a swedish pancake pan- i.e. a skillet with 4 inset circles) which is great for preparing perfectly round breakfast sandwiches. if you don’t have a special pan, you can still whip up some conventional pancakes per the instructions on your boxed mix- just don’t forget to drizzle with syrup halfway through cooking for that signature maple-infused “bun.”



  • 2 cups Bisquick pancake mix
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 2 tbsp. maple syrup


  • 2 fully-cooked Jimmy Dean pork sausage patties
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 slices american cheese
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. in a mixing bowl, combine pancake mix, milk, eggs, and vegetable oil, whisking until smooth.
  2. lightly grease the pancake pan then fill each divot with a small spoonful of batter. add a drizzle of maple syrup to each, then cover with another spoonful of batter, taking care not to overfill.
  3. cook over medium heat for 3-4 minutes per side, until pancakes are lightly golden. set aside.
  4. in the same pan over medium heat, crack an egg into two of the divots. use chopsticks or another utensil to pop the yolks and cook until set, about 3-5 minutes. season with salt and pepper then set aside.
  5. finally, heat sausage patties for 7-10 minutes, turning occasionally for even browning.
  6. to assemble the sandwich, pile sausage and egg onto a pancake bun, followed by a slice of american cheese. drizzle with maple syrup then add the top bun.
