  • two skillets
  • spatula
  • Mixing Bowl


  • 1 cup Kodiak Cakes Powercakes Mix
  • 1 cup water
  • 6 eggs
  • 16 oz breakfast sausage
  • 6 slices cheese optional
  • maple syrup optional
  • cooking spray or oil
  • salt to taste
  • pepper to taste


  • Gather all the ingredients.
  • Heat up a skillet. When the skillet is hot, coat with cooking spray or oil.
  • Mix 1 cup of Kodiak Cakes mix with 1 cup of water. Add additional pancake mix or water until the batter is the correct consistency (a thicker consistency is best for a more supportive McGriddle).
  • Scoop the batter into 3-4 inch pancakes on the skillet. Cook pancakes until there are bubbles on one side, then flip and cook an additional minute or until brown. Repeat this process until all pancakes are made, spraying cooking oil in between each round.
  • To make the sausages, open the tube of breakfast sausage and form 6 patties. Sprinkle the patties with salt and pepper if desired.
  • Add the formed sausage patties onto a hot skillet. Cook until the internal temperature of the patties reaches 160 degrees or until brown.
  • If you would like cheese on your sandwich, add a slice on top of the sausage patty when it is almost done cooking so it can melt on the patty.
  • To make the eggs, crack the eggs into a mixing bowl. Use a whisk or a fork to beat the eggs until everything is combined. Add milk if desired.
  • Use a hot skillet to cook the eggs. Either pour all of the egg mixture onto a skillet and use a spatula to scramble the eggs OR pour the eggs into a skillet and cook completely as an omelette. The eggs will stay on the sandwich better if cooked as a "patty" however they scan be scrambled and it still works.
  • Once the pancakes, sausages, and eggs are cooked, begin assembling the sandwiches.
  • Lay down pancake pairs on plates. Add a sausage patty and cheese to one of the pancakes and eggs to the other. Put all components together to make a sandwich. Repeat this process until all sandwiches are made.
  • Drizzle with maple syrup, if desired.
  • Enjoy!
