Everyone is trying to save money these days, which means you’re probably not eating out as much as you would like. However, you can make a number of the recipes you love at home, so you put more money in the monthly budget.
Here are some famous restaurant copycats recipes you may want to try, as well as the best sources for finding restaurant recipes that are easy to make at home.
If you love Mexican food, chances are you’ve visited a Don Pablo’s for dinner if you have one in your city. One of the most famous restaurant recipes from the restaurant is the Burrito Grande, which is filled with fajita meat and vegetables.
To make this dish, you’ll need marinated and grilled steak or chicken (you can add your own seasoning combination if you like) as well as pico de gallo and guacamole. A combination of cheeses, including sharp cheddar and Monterey Jack cheese, should be used in the dish for an authentic Mexican flavor, and you can use lettuce and tomato to add to the nutritional value of the burrito.
Side dishes include Mexican rice, and you can also add refried beans to the meal for a filling dinner that your whole family will love. The meal is served with chips and salsa, and you can garnish the plate with tortilla strips and a serving of sour cream so that you’ll feel like you’re having a meal at Don Pablo’s.
If you like to take the family to Applebee’s often, you may also want to try famous restaurant copycats recipes from this eatery, especially if you love dessert.
The Deadly Chocolate Sin is a cake that is rich and flavorful–and one that you probably have more times than you should. So, if you’re making the cake at home, you can substitute the butter for margarine, as well as alternative forms of sugar that will be just as tasty.
You’ll need ingredients like semisweet and bitter chocolate, as well as vanilla extract (vanilla bean extract will also add great flavor) and eggs to make the recipe come together, and red raspberries in heavy syrup (for topping).
Baking the cakes in small ramekins so that each member of the family will have their own dessert will also add a special touch that will make you feel as though you’re dining out even when you’re saving money.
