100 of the Best Restaurant Copycat Recipes

Growing up, my mom called me “the fast food queen”.  I absolutely LOVE going out to eat!  My husband and I still go out to eat about once a week (bad, I know).  I love the atmosphere of restaurants, the variety of food, and the people watching, but I especially love not having to do the dishes.  If we are too busy to go out, I will try to make a restaurant recipe at home that tastes just as good.  You may have to do a few dishes, but at least you won’t have to pay a tip! 😉
 Here is a list of 100 of our “go-to” favorite restaurant copycat recipes:

    I have enjoyed following your website and its recipes for quite a while now. I use many of them on a regular basis and have always come back to your site when I am searching for a good recipe. I am surprised and disappointed that I now find incredibly distracting and annoying ads popping up on EVERY recipe picture (all 100 of them) in this otherwise great post on copycat recipes. It has made reading your site very unpleasant. And I am very sad to say that I won't be back. :(

    • Hi Donna, I've been doing some research for you on the internet trying to find your Sweet Tomatoes Copycat chicken noodle soup recipe. So far no luck, but I'll be on the lookout for you! We have a sister site, MyRecipeMagic.com. If you go to the website and type in Chicken Noodle Soup in the search bar, a lot of chicken noodle soup recipes will pop up and they all look amazing. Feel free to check them out and see if any of them look similar. Cyd (mom of the Six Sisters)

    An observation -- Walmart, and perhaps others, are now selling a boxed mixture of Red Lobster's Cheddar Bay Biscuits. I bought a box but haven't made them yet. It comes directly from Red Lobster, so it is the real deal.
  5. Hi, two fonts that this blog uses very frequently are both used in the title photo for this entry. Could you please identify them? What are the fonts that read "100... Restaurant Recipes" and "of the best... from," respectively? Thank you.
  6. I must be doing something wrong, as I clicked on the print friendly button and hit print. All I received was 30 pages of colored photos and no recipes. Am I doing something wrong in order to print the recipes? I'm not usually computer illiterate (lol) Thank you

    Please help! I've searched for years for a recipe for Popeye's Red Beans & Rice. The ingredients can't cost over a dollar or so, but they charge the world for it. Anybody got one they can vouch for as being like the original? We've tried most of the ones on the web that say they are, but none is even close. ~ Susan
    DO YOU HAVE ANY RECIPES SIMILAR to the wegmans ultimate vanilla cake recipe that everyone raves about? Love your website! ALSO, why do bakery cakes taste better than home made? What do they put in the cake to make it taste so good? Maryann
    • Hi Maryann. You may like our basic white 2 layer cake with butter cream frosting. We will be on the lookout for a vanilla cake like Wegman's. https://www.sixsistersstuff.com/2014/10/basic-white-two-layer-cake-and-white-buttercream-frosting.html

    Hello, I’m looking for a copycat recipe of the Perkins Tomato Basil Soup, it’s so creamy & delicious. I seem to taste some kind of cheese in it too. Didn’t find it on your site, though I might have overlooked it??? Any help appreciated. Thank you.

Not sure how close it is to Perkins. https://www.sixsistersstuff.com/recipe/slow-cooker-tomato-basil-soup/ Here is a link to MyRecipeMagic.com that has a lot of tomato basil soup recipes that you can check out. https://www.myrecipemagic.com/search/?q=%22Perkins+Tomato+Basil+Soup%22
