HG Sausage Egg n Cheese CHICKgriddle

"Mmmmm"..That is the only noise I could manage as my eyes rolled back in my head in pure food pleasure! This recipe is pretty much to DIE for..especially if you are haunted by those yummy McGriddles at McDonald's that pretty much take half of your daily WW points for the ENTIRE DAY! These are an amazing swap! And for only 5WWPP, they are just mmmmmmmmAzing! Brian gives it 4.5 out of 5 stars!
This yummy recipe comes from HG's newest book, 300 Under 300, page 58.

Sausage, Egg 'N Cheese Chickgriddle

* 1 teaspoon light whipped butter or light buttery spread
* 2 1/2 Tbsp Sugar-Free pancake syrup (I use Hungry Jack SF Butter flavor)
* 1 1/2 Tbsp. whole-wheat flour (I just used regular, not a big diff in the nutrtition)
* 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
* 1 frozen meatless or turkey sausage patty with about 80 calories (Morning Star brand)
* 1 slice fat-free American (Not a fan of Fat Free, so I used half a slice of 2%..honestly it fit better on this sandwich and kept the yummy cheese flavor I love)
* 1/4 cup fat-free liquid egg substitute (I used egg whites)
* optional dip: More syrup (nahhh)


1. To make the pancake batter, place butter in a microwave bowl and nuke about 10 seconds (until melted).

2. Add 2 1/2T. syrup, 1 1/2 T. flour, and 1/4t. baking powder, and mix thoroughly.

3. Bring a skillet with nonstick spray to medium heat on stove. Add batter to form 2 small pancakes and make about 2-3 minutes on each side (until golden brown) flipping CAREFULLY.

4. In the mean time, microwave sausage 1-1 1/2 minutes (what the package says).

5. In a separate (smaller) skillet, spray and bring to medium heat. Pour in eggs and let cook a few minutes until hard enough to flip. (Do not scramble). When done, break in fourths for the sandwich.

6. Layer time! First, pancake, then sausage, then half of cheese, then egg, cheese then top with other pancake!

7. Voila!! Yumminess! (Try not to eat it all before you sit down..yes..they are THAT good!)

***NEXT TIME: I am going to try it with veggie bacon, which will shave off 1WWPP....AND..I may try just an egg and cheese one, which will shave off 2WWPP!!***
