I was recently at an Applebees restaurant and I got to wondering how they make all their food. Not just how long it takes them to cook a chicken breast or anything like that, but how they prepare the whole dish. It bothered me like a buzzing fly that won't stop swarming around your head. I finally had to do something about it. I got on the internet and started doing a little research, and now I can make the food that tastes so great, and it even saves me money!
My favorite copycat Applebees recipe is hot artichoke spinach dip. It's so easy it can make the worst of cooks look good.
The ingredients are:
1 (10 oz. ) box frozen chopped spinach, thawed
1 (14 oz. ) can artichoke hearts, drained and chopped
1 cup shredded parmesan-romano cheese mix
½ cup shredded mozzarella cheese
10 oz. prepared alfredo sauce
1 tsp. minced garlic
4 oz. softened cream cheese
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Combine ingredients thoroughly in a bowl and spread mixture into an 8"x8" baking dish.
3. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until cheeses are bubbling and melted.
4. Serve with chips or bread.
It led me to copycat recipes from Applebees and many more restaurants and now I can eat in, impress my family with my cooking skills, and save some cash! What started as a pesky thought with a visit to Applebees has become a way for me to get my family together for food we can all enjoy. I would highly recommend you do the same!
