Host A Copycat Dinner Party

Host A Copycat Dinner Party

It’s snowing by us, so we thought a great party idea would be to have all our friends over to host a copycat recipe party. We’ll get the flavors of our favorite foods without having to trek to the actual restaurants. We’ve got everything covered here, from appetizers all the way to desserts, so get ready for one delicious party!

These appetizers are delicious and will let your guests know that you’re taking the whole copycat theme seriously.

Copycat Buca di Beppo Mozzarella Caprese- A caprese salad is one of our favorite Italian dishes. Use fresh tomatoes and mozzarella cheese for the best taste.
Copycat Ruby Tuesday's Buffalo Chicken Wontons- Warning: These wontons are hot!
McDonald's Chicken McNuggets- Chicken nuggets are a kid's favorite meal. Learn how to make a homemade version of the popular McDonald's Chicken McNuggets. 

Main Courses
These main courses are some of our favorites. The rib recipe is our go-to for a quick meal, but the other ones are absolutely delicious.

Copycat Chili's® Baby Back Ribs Recipe- I want my baby back, baby back, baby back. I want my baby back, baby back, baby back. But I don't want to go to Chili's®, to Chili's®, to Chili's®. If you want that flavor at home, just make this copycat recipe!
Bob Evans Stuffed Baked Squash- This squash is filled with many great flavors and makes a fantastic meal.
Copycat Macaroni Grill Penne Rustica- This pasta dish has everything in it: shrimp, bacon, chicken, sauce and spices! 

These sides are a mix of heavy and light, so make one or two to go along with the mains.

Copycat P.F. Chang's Peanut Chicken Salad-
This mix of chicken, veggies and noodles get's a nice burst of flavor from the peanut sauce.
Copycat Cracker Barrel Cornbread Dressing- A down home and delicious way to serve up cornbread.
Copycat Ruth's Chris Sweet Potato Casserole- Ruth's Chris is one of the best steak houses around, but they can cook more than steak. Their sweet potato casserole is also delicious. 

These are our absolute favorite copycat desserts. They’ll make sure your party ends on a high note.

Copycat Starbucks Low Fat Blueberry Muffins
- Baked goods from coffee shops are usually diet disasters, but these low-fat muffins won't ruin your waistline.
Copycat Arby's Apple Turnovers- We go to Arby's for three things: roast beef sandwiches, curly fries and their tasty apple turnovers.
Copycat Trader Joe's Cranberry Walnut Tart- This cranberry walnut tart is a fall staple, but is good all year round.

These beverages are crisp and refreshing, so serve them alongside the food!

Strawberry Kiwifruit Smoothies from Panera- Strawberry and kiwi is a classic fruit combination that makes for a delicious smoothie.
McDonald's Strawberry Lemonade- McDonald's frozen strawberry lemonade sure hits the spot on a hot summer's day. Learn how to make this sweet treat at home.
Copycat Bailey's Irish Cream- A favorite holiday beverage for adults! Try making your own this winter.
