Some of the Best Copycat Recipes Online.
Do you love the challenge of recreating your favorite restaurant recipes at home? When I get a craving for, say, Olive Garden's Chicken Gnocchi Soup or authentic Hawaiian Macaroni Salad, I make AllFreeCopycatRecipes.com my first stop. With the help of some very talented home cooks and bloggers, I find the inspiration I need to make my own gluten-free and dairy-free versions of restaurant classics.
This week AllFreeCopycatRecipes.com released their Top 100 Copycat Recipes for 2014. All I can say is that I'm glad for the upcoming Christmas break and time to try a handful of them. The IKEA Swedish Meatballs and the Chic-fil-A Chicken Nuggets are sure to be attempted. My kids would be so excited if I could master those (in a more healthful and allergen-free way, of course).
I always learn something in the process.
Converting recipes to gluten-free and dairy-free doesn't always work, but I always learn something in the process—and some of them actually do turn out! My most popular copycat recipes include Outback Steakhouse Wedge Salad (pictured in the collage above), Olive Garden's Zuppa Toscana (Zuppa di Italiano), and Penzey's Italian Sausage Seasoning. If you try them, I hope you enjoy them!
Next up? That Olive Garden Chicken Gnocchi Soup.
I have the picture shot and ready, now just to find that scrap piece of paper I hastily jotted the recipe down on! Hate it when that happens.
Anyway, I just wanted to share this list of AllFreeCopycatRecipes.com with you. Most of the recipes are far from being allergen-free, but they provide a good foundation and inspiration for those who like to play in the kitchen and make magic happen.
