Home-Made McGriddles (Gluten Free)

It’s a beautiful Sunday morning, and what better way to celebrate sunshine and blue skies with an amazingly delicious breakfast!? I remember having this sandwich once from McDonald’s, but that was a very long time ago! But the unique blend of flavors of a breakfast sandwich combined with maple pancakes stuck with me!  I’m sure this isn’t exactly the healthiest option, but once in awhile its not gonna hurt right?! And in a word, this is perfect “Man-Food”!! As you can see i doubled up on the bacon. I only stole a bite of hubby’s cause I’m stayin away from eggs, bacon and cheese, but omg it was good! I stuck to just the maple pancakes with a sausage patty, and that was equally scrumptious! There’s just something about maple covered pig! LOL! The pancakes are loaded with maple flavor and then the whole sandwich is covered with maple syrup. To enhance the flavor (and the calorie count! Haha) you can put syrup on the bottom pancake before adding the layers. No matter what though, this sure beats McDonald’s in quality, flavor and calories, not to mention cost!  So, as some of you are just rousing from your beds (Ive been up since 7 cause no matter what i can’t sleep in. Boo! LOL) give this one a try and start your day off right! Or…ladies, make this for your guy on Valentines Day this week! You’re sure to end up with a very happy man!  I know mine was this morning! LOL Enjoy! 🙂
