I love going out to eat. I could probably eat out 5 nights a week if it wouldn’t affect our wallets or our waistlines. Dave and the kids enjoy eating out too and are always just as happy to eat at a restaurant as I am. Recently I was at a library book sale and I came across a copycat restaurant recipes book. I flipped through it and was so excited about the recipes I dropped it in my basket and purchased it that evening.
I’ve flipped through the book many times since and I’ve been pinning copycat recipes as I come across them and thought it would be fun to put together a collection of the best of them to share here on the blog.
Shamrock Shake From Number 2 Pencil
Thin Mint Cookiesn From Insructables
Cinnabons From The Mama Report
IHOP Pancakes From Savings Mania
Olive Garden Breadsticks From Cooking Classy
Texas Roadhouse Rolls From Eat Cake For Dinner
Olive Garden’s Zuppa Toscana Soup From Cinnamon Spice and Everything Nice
Panera Broccoli Cheddar Soup From Key Ingredient
Panera Strawberry Poppyseed Salad From My Stilettos & Diapers
In-N-Out Cheeseburger From Alaska From Scratch
Chili’s Baby Back Ribs Recipe 4 Living
Cadbury Eggs From Instructables
Chili’s Chocolate Chip Paradise Pie From Real Mom Kitchen
Many of these are much easier than I would have thought and I like that by making them at home I can make them as healthy or as indulgent as I like, and they’re real money savers too. No need to go out every night for your favorites when you can make them right at home!
Enjoy and let me know if you’ve tried any of the recipes above and how it turned out. Also, be sure to follow me on Pinterest, I’m always looking for new people to follow and would love to follow you back.
What about you? Do you have a favorite copycat recipe you like to make? Which one of these recipes would you love to try?
