Applebee's Recipes

A list of Applebee's recipes, providing a helpful guide to preparing your favorite dishes from the Applebee's menu at home. These copycat Applebee's recipes are typically not based on exactly the method used at the popular restaurant chain, but are modeled closely on the flavor and texture of Applebee's food, making it easier than ever to bring these great tastes to your house for cheap.

From the cheesy biscuits at Red Lobster to the amazing sauces at Buffalo Wild Wings, it's always tempting to go out for a delicious treat at one of the numerous chain and franchise restaurants dotting the landscape. But eating out at restaurants all the time can be a costly proposition. Not to mention the fact that, at restaurants, you have no portion control, and can't alter the recipes, ingredients or style of cooking to suit your own taste.

Making Applebee's recipes in your home gives you all of these options, while saving you money, and providing the same great diversity and taste that you'd find at your favorite casual dining spot.

Applebee's was founded in 1980 in George, and has since become known for its staple "Americana"-inspired food, including salads, baked chicken, steaks and the restaurant's signature dish, "riblets." In states where this is permissible, each Applebee's location also features a full bar and a variety of appetizers and other bar-appropriate finger foods. In 2007, Applebee's restaurants were purchased by DineEquity Inc., the parent company that also owns IHOP.
