IHOP recipes - the easy way to prepare the best dishes from the IHOP menu. These are copycat recipes, not necessarily made the same way as they are prepared at IHOP, but closely modeled on the flavors and textures of IHOP's popular food, so you can bring these exotic tastes to your own table for a fraction of the cost.

IHOP (formerly International House of Pancakes) is a casual restaurant chain that specializes in breakfast foods such as pancakes, omelets, and French toast. The first IHOP opened in July 1958, and now there are more than 1,500 restaurants across the U.S. - as well as in Canada, Mexico, Guatemala, and Puerto Rico. IHOP is known for the variety of flavored syrups on its menu, and the chain also offers lunch and dinner items.

From Red Lobster Cheddar Bay Biscuits to Buffalo Wild Wings hot sauce, chain and franchise restaurants are popular destinations around the world. Eating out too frequently can be costly, not to mention that it's hard to control portion size, ingredients, or the style of cooking to suit your preferences.
