Copy Cat Recipes

By: Syowr
Many people think it takes too long to cook at home, they are too busy or just do not have the time. It makes me so frustrated to hear people say this. I find time to make meals every day in my kitchen despite having a hectic life. Normally I cook the same dishes that you find at your favorite restaurants. Restaurants need to be able to serve large numbers of people quickly. Their dishes need to be simple to make and fast to cook. Having a dependable compendium of restaurant copy cat recipes has made it so much easier for me to cook at home.

I had always thought restaurants were a time saver, I soon realized that they were a crutch. I always loved cooking but never had the time, or so I thought. I found out about copy cat recipes totally by chance one day while searching the internet for a new way to make pizza. I happened to see a copy cat recipe for Olive Garden Pizza Bianco. I'm listing it below so you can see how simple it is to make.

Copy cat recipe: Pizza Bianco

Ingredients:
2 6" Ready-to-serve thick pizza crusts

Cheese filling:
1/2 cup ricotta cheese
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
1/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup shredded fontina cheese
1/2 of a medium onion minced
1 1/2 tablespoon 2% milk
1/4 teaspoon salt

Toppings:
1/4 cup sliced green onions
1/3 cup diced black olives
1/3 cup chopped tomatoes
1/2 cup grated mozzarella cheese
1 teaspoon oregano
1 teaspoon basil

Directions:
Combine all ingredients for the filling in a large bowl and mix well.
Split up the filling in half and spread on each crust.
Disperse olives, tomatoes and green onions over crusts.
Then the Mozzarella gets sprinkled on top.
Finally Scatter the top with oregano and basil.
Bake in a 375F oven for 8 to 10 minutes until cheese has melted.
Cut into 6 wedges.

In less then half an hour I was eating that copy cat recipe. You can easily take that long driving to the restaurant and waiting to get a table, let alone have food in front of you. Don't forget about the bill after the meal, and the tip. Not to mention the gas to drive there and back. It not only takes up more time to eat out but it ends up costing more in the long run.

With a full cookbook of copy cat recipes you can eat restaurant food at home, and it is both quicker and less costly. With practice you can find you can cook various copy cat recipes at once with ease. I regularly make an entire meal for my wife and I including appetizers, main course and a desert in less than 1 hour. Restaurant copy cat recipes have saved me time and money by giving me a way to enjoy all my favorites easily at home.
