How to Make Homemade McGriddle on a Blackstone

  • Step 1 – Heat the Grill – Preheat the Blackstone Grill over medium high heat (approximately 350 degrees F).
  • Step 2 – Prepare Pancake Mix – Prepare the pancake mix based on the package instructions or prepare a homemade mix.  
  • Step 3 – Cook Sausage – Place the pork sausage patties on one side of the grill.  Smash the patties down while they are cooking to thin them out.  Cook them for 4-5 minutes per side until browned and cooked through.

  • Step 4 – Place Mason Jar Lid on Griddle – Place a canning lid or an egg ring onto the grill and spray it with a non-stick cooking spray. 
  • Step 5 – Crack an Egg – Crack an egg into the rings.  Then pour the water onto the grill around the rings and place a dome on top to steam the eggs.  Cover and cook for 2-3 minutes until the eggs are set.

  • Step 6 – Move Sausage and Eggs – Remove the sausage and eggs to a cool side of the grill while you prepare the pancakes.  
  • Step 7 – Add Pancake Batter to Griddle – Add the pancake batter to the griddle to form 8 small pancakes (approximately the size of the eggs).  Drizzle the syrup into the pancake batter.

  • Step 9 – Flip Pancakes – Use a metal spatula to flip the pancakes and cook the opposite side until it’s golden brown (1-2 more minutes). Do not press done on the pancakes and do not flip the pancakes multiple times.

Expert Tips

  • Cooking Sausage – These sausage patties can easily be prepared ahead of time and reheated on the griddle. As I am cooking the patties, I like to season with salt and pepper over medium heat.
  • Eggs – To keep the round shape of the egg, we recommend cooking in a mason jar lid.
  • Pancake Batter – We like to make pancake batter from scratch, but you can use box pancake batter. Prepared ahead of time and then pour on the griddle for a delicious pancake.
  • Cooking Pancakes – Pour the pancake batter on the grill. Allow the pancake to cook on one side and then flip. Only flip pancake once and do not press on pancake.

How to Make a McGriddle Indoors?

These McGriddles can be prepared indoors if you prefer. If I prepare them indoors, I usually multiple skillets so that everything is done about the same time.

I like to cook the sausage in a cast iron skillet as it will have the same texture as cooking on the griddle. Prepare the pancakes and cook in a skillet.

Then build your McGriddles with layers of cheese, sausage, egg with two pancakes. This is a hearty and delicious breakfast.

Can you Freeze Blackstone McGriddles?

You can freeze the McGriddles by following these simple steps.

  • After preparing the McGriddle allow it to cool to room temperature. Wrap each breakfast sandwich in a plastic wrap and place inside a freezer bag.
  • This will allow you take out a few at a time.
  • Once you are ready to serve, remove from freeze and heat in the microwave for about 3 minutes. This is the perfect breakfast on the go.
