Menu Plans: Copycat Restaurant Recipes

Thursday, 7/24

 Enjoy your favorite dishes at home with these copycat restaurant recipes!

While it can be super fun to head to your favorite restaurant so they can serve you your favorite dish, it can also be a little bit crazy if you’ve got a lot of little ones that are looking for some place to exert their energy. Here’s an idea: you can make your favorite restaurant recipes at home!

Most recipes for dishes that you can find on menus at chain restaurants can easily be found online, especially if they’re a restaurant’s customer favorite. Plus, you can probably feed your whole family for the price of one entree at a restaurant by attempting the copycat recipe yourself at home.

    The Olive Garden Alfredo is my favorite recipe!

    I make many, many copycat recipes! Our favorites though, would have to be Wendy’s Chili and Olive Garden’s minestrone and breadsticks. (Golden Corral’s Bourbon Chicken is also wonderful!)

    I love copycat recipes. My families favorites are OCharley’s loaded potato soup and hibachi with yumyum/white sauce.
