Bite taken out of Keto McGriddle Breakfast Sandwich on plate

This copycat Mcgriddle Sandwich made keto-style is sure to be a breakfast game changer!

Following a keto lifestyle does not mean you have to give up delicious on-the-go breakfast options! Although I love whipping up scrambled eggs and bacon, there are also many mornings when I crave something different like this copycat McGriddle Sandwich that I can make at home.

This copycat keto McGriddle Breakfast Sandwich tastes virtually identical to the famous McGriddle from McDonald’s minus most of the sodium and carbs! In fact, my keto version of this sandwich has just 6 total carbs and 3 net carbs whereas the regular McGriddle Sandwich has a whopping 44 carbs! What a difference!

Holding Keto McGriddle Breakfast Sandwich

Hip Tips:

  • Since the pancake batter makes more than enough for one sandwich, I usually make 4-5 sandwiches out of 1 batch and freeze them for the upcoming week.
  • For the perfect sandwich size bun, I used my one and only Dash Mini Maker.
  • You can also make this McGriddle with bacon, ham, or just spinach and mushrooms if you’re vegetarian.

From the syrup infused pancake buns to the fresh egg and choice of bacon, sausage, or ham, I mean come on, who wouldn’t crave this sandwich? Plus, on a lazy Sunday, I usually make 4-6 of these sandwiches and freeze them for the week! So easy and so delicious!

  1. Marie

    Would these cook up like regular pancakes for those of us who don’t own the mini waffle maker?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Good question, Marie! Let us know how they turn out if you decide to give it a try!

    • Melissa

      I tried last night and it was an ok sandwich substitute. The mixture is very thick so it would not level out. I put a spoon full in the pan, cooked 2 min then turned it over and squished it down too make it flat. Came out ok but much better with the waffle maker.

      • Sarah27

        You can get a metal or silicone ring, often used to contain eggs or pancakes and it will help them stay in shape and be thicker. Mine was less than $1 at local stores or ebay.

    • Dianna Blair

      How did you get a bread with what looks like grill lines instead of waffle squares? I looked at the Dash Mini maker and it only shows squares for the waffle effect.

      • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

        Hi Dianna! THIS Dash Mini Maker will grill with those lines. Hope that helps!

  2. Cyndi

    Was a specific brand of sausage used? Were these pre-made patties or patties formed from ground sausage?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi Cyndi! You can use any keto friendly sausage. These patties were made by us for this recipe, as that’s what was available at the time, however you can find pre made patties at your local Whole Foods or grocery store. Hope this helps!

  3. Allie

    I wonder if you could make this in the oven and cut into slices?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      That may work. Let us know how you like it, if you decide to try it that way!

  4. Judy

    Don’t you mean baking powder ?

    • Cassandra (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi Judy! Baking soda is correct as Ashley wanted to be sure the batter had enough rise. Hope that helps!

    • Melissa

      That’s what I was thinking so I changed it. They came out as great little sandwiches. Not really as sweet as my spouse liked but I added some mayo and they were good.

    • Kathy

      My carb manager app shows 4.9 net carbs just for the bun using the ingredients you describe. I just can’t get it down to 3 net carbs for the whole thing.

  5. Dawn

    I was unable to come up with the same macros on this sandwich. Mine ended up being 645 calories, 7 net carbs, 54 fat. Obviously my ingredients are not nearly as good as yours. Everything was sugar free and full fat. It still tastes great but too many calories/fat. Can you share the brands of ingredients that you used aside for the Lankato SF syrup?

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      It depends on the sausage and cheese you are using, Dawn. For flour we used Bob Mills, for cream cheese we used Philadelphia, and for butter we used Kerry Gold. Hope this helps!

  6. Jill

    Could you provide nutritional info without the egg and sausage please.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Yes! Here is the nutritional information without the sausage and egg –

  7. Jim Fogarty

    Just a editorial comment since I haven’t made them yet.
    You say this makes five servings yet you use only one egg, one sausage patty, and one slice of cheese.
    We all know that is for each sandwich, or at least I hope we all know that but your list of ingredients, as written, is inconsistent since it makes five buns but only one sandwich.
    Could this be impact the net carb count that people are commenting about?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi Jim! Thanks so much for taking the time to comment! For this, the batter makes 5 sandwiches but the amounts are per serving which is only 1 sandwich. Hope that helps!

  8. Laurie

    Can you use the dash griddle for this recipe instead of the dash grill?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Yes! You could use that instead, however the cooking time may be a bit different.

  9. Nannalou

    Not really a fan of syrup. Will it change the consistency too much if you leave it out. Is there anything to substitute?

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      You can just replace it with water. The maple is mostly for flavor and does help create a smooth texture, Nannalou!

  10. Heather

    Just made these for dinner tonight, they were delicious! I made them in a frying pan since I didn’t have a griddle (they were like silver dollar pancakes). Thanks 🙂

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Oh great! You’re welcome, Heather! Happy they turned out yummy in the frying pan!

  11. Julie

    Hi – do you assemble the whole sandwich and then freeze or are you only freezing the buns?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi Julie! You would assemble and freeze the whole sandwich.

  12. Joe Chiarelli

    Just made these and they were they best thing since sliced bread, lol

    • Angie (Hip2Keto Sidekick)

      Hi Joe! I’m so glad you loved it❣ Thank you for letting us know!

  13. Julie

    I made these this morning, and they were great! My only problem is that each “sandwich” ended up being 607 calories and 6 net carbs. I used Lidl brand cream cheese, Blue Diamond almond flour, and Food Lion brand sausage patties. The sausage is 100 calories each patty with zero carbs. I used one slice of Sargento ultra-thin Swiss cheese. Sweeteners were all as directed in the recipe. I just can’t justify using that many calories for breakfast, since I’m only at 1,200 per day. 🙁 I think I will have this open-faced instead and save calories that way. Thanks for the recipe!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      You’re welcome, Julie! Thank you for taking a moment to comment! It looks like the Blue Diamond almond flour has about 400 more calories than Bob Red Mills. Hoping this might help!

    • Tara

      Try the Lidl Neufchâtel cream cheese instead – that has 1 g of carbs while their full fat cream cheese has 3 g. There are huge differences in cream cheese I’ve noticed.

  14. Brent Giroux

    These turned out amazing, I used uncured ham!!!! The recipe is perfect !! 5 sandwiches! Super easy .

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Yay! SO glad to hear how yummy they turned out, Brent! Thanks for letting us know!

  15. Roberta

    I tried this recipe today in my mini griddle but did not add the sugar or syrup as I didn’t have any. I found they still tasted great, even my picky eater liked the “bread” with just peanut butter on top. Could you provide the nutritional info without these items for the “bread” part only please. I would like to use them for recipes without the sausage and egg. Thanks in advance.

    • Angie (Hip2Keto Sidekick)

      Hi Roberta! You can add all the brands your using into my fitness pal and come up with the information. Or you can send us all the brands you use and how much so we can calculate it! I hope this helps❤

  16. Jack

    Can these buns be frozen for later use?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Yes! They can be frozen!
