My family loves going out to eat. The kids are thrilled to pick whatever they want from a menu and not be limited to what Mom has made for dinner that night. (I enjoy going out to eat as well … until the bill comes!)
One way I’ve started saving money is by making my family’s favorite restaurant dishes at home. I bet your family has favorite meals to eat out, too. Now you can say goodbye to paying lots for those fabulous flavors with our list of the best copycat restaurant recipes you can make at home, for much less.
WHAT IS A COPYCAT RECIPE?
Copycats are when people find a way to re-create the same soup, salad dressing or meal they love to order when eating out — but at home. It takes a lot of time, trial and error to re-create a restaurant recipe to get it to taste as close to the original as possible. Fortunately, copycat recipe chefs have done all the work for us!
COPYCAT RECIPES TO MAKE AT HOME
Here are some of our absolute FAVORITE restaurant copycat recipes that taste just like the original, including a Starbucks copycat recipe for lemon pound cake, a Cinnabon cinnamon roll recipe, an Olive Garden salad dressing recipe and a Panera broccoli cheddar cheese soup recipe. The homemade version of each is super easy to make right in your own kitchen (and lots cheaper).
