Almost everyone enjoys dining out every now and then.  Don’t we?  It’s nice to get out and enjoy a meal and some nice conversation with friends and family. But let’s face it, it’s pricey. Today we are sharing 12 Restaurant Copycat Recipes that won’t break the bank! 

We would so love to go out to eat several times per week however, that’s not always affordable. A family of four could easily spend more than $50 at a nice, sit-down restaurant, and over $20 at a fast food establishment.

There are, of course, other good reasons for skipping the restaurant.  If you eat at home  you know exactly what ingredients are in the food and who’s preparing it. I’d say eating at home is likely a much healthier option overall.  Knowing what’s better though certainly isn’t going to stop those cravings for your favorite restaurant dish.

Are you looking for ways to save and eat healthier, but still enjoy your favorite restaurant’s specialty?  Here are a few copycat recipes that might help.
