Steps To Make McDonald’s McGriddle

1. Gear Up 

  Take a skillet, put it on the heat, add melted butter, and keep the bacon slices to fry until it is brown and crisp. Simultaneously, take a saucepan, add a splash of water and 200 ml of maple syrup. Let the syrup caramelize nicely. Keep stirring the syrup so it doesn’t foam over, and flipping the bacon to avoid the extra burn. 

2. Sizzling

When the maple syrup is caramelized, pour it on the butter paper. Spread it all over and let it dry. After that, crush the dried syrup into chunks, or make tiny balls. Let’s move forward to the batter of griddlecake. Take a bowl, add dry ingredients like all-purpose flour, a teaspoon of sugar, one tablespoon of baking powder, and a teaspoon of salt. Mix it well to break the lumps. Add a glass of milk in small portions until it is mixed properly. Make sure the batter has a loose but thick consistency.

3. Heat Energy

Take the skillet, add melted butter and with the help of a cookie cutter cook the batter to make griddlecake. In the batter, add those little tiny balls of maple syrup. Cook it on both sides. Then, on a skillet, drizzle some melted butter, pour the mixture of egg to make an omelet. Use a spatula to flip and fold. 

4. Get Together

  Put all the cooked elements on a plate to assemble the sandwich. First, add the slices of cheese on the bottom bun, the fried bacon strips on top of it, and further add a folded egg. At last, Spread a little maple syrup on the top bun and put it to cover the McGriddle sandwich.
