Are you tired of looking around for Copycat Recipes?
What's the reason you want Copycat Recipes? I bet I know....
Have you ever been to a restaurant and left there asking: "just how do they make those
dishes?" I bet you sat there trying to uncover just what has gone into the dish, what sort of ingredients
they're using.. Maybe you have even tried to ask the waiter or the chef for the recipe it
was so good! Chances are they didn't give you the recipe, and probably for good reason, if
they did give it out to every person who asked for it, they could soon be out of business.
So you love a certain meal so much, you try to make it at home. Maybe you had some success, chances are that you weren't even close to getting the recipe right. The solution to this dilemma is to use what are called copycat
restaurant recipes. They are specially researched and reverse engineered dishes like
Copycat Recipes that have been tried and tested many times and hence can be successfully used to
recreate your favorite restaurant dishes.
Another cool thing about cooking restaurant copycat recipes at home, is that you'll save a bunch of money. Think about not having to go out 3 times a week or more just to eat your favorite dishes.
With a good cookbook full of copy cat recipes you can eat restaurant food at home and it is both faster and less expensive. With practice you will find you can prepare several copy cat recipes at once with ease. I frequently make an entire meal for my wife and I including appetizers, main course and a desert in under 1 hour. Restaurant copy cat recipes have saved me time and expense by giving me a way to enjoy all my favorites easily at home.

|Legal Seafood Clam Chowder
4 quarts littleneck clams (about 1-2/3 cups cooked and chopped)
1 clove garlic, chopped
1 cup water
2 ounces salt pork, finely chopped
2 cups chopped onions
3 tablespoons flour
1-1/2 pounds potatoes, peeled, and diced into 1/2-inch cubes
4-1/2 cups clam broth
3 cups Fish Stock
2 cups light cream
Oyster crackers (optional)
Clean the clams and place them in a large pot along with the garlic
and water. Steam the clams just until opened, about 6 to 10 minutes,
depending upon their size. Drain and shell the clams, reserving
the broth. Mince the clam flesh, and set aside. Filter the clam broth
either through coffee filters or cheesecloth and set aside.
In a large, heavy pot slowly render the salt pork. Remove the cracklings
and set them aside. Slowly cook the onions in the fat for about 6 minutes,
stirring frequently, or until cooked through but not browned. Stir in the
flour and cook, stirring, for 3 minutes. Add the reserved clam broth and
Fish Stock, and whisk to remove any flour lumps. Bring the liquid to a
boil, add the potatoes, lower the heat, and simmer until the potatoes
are cooked through, about 15 minutes.
Stir in the reserved clams, salt-pork cracklings, and light cream.
Heat the chowder until it is the temperature you prefer.
Serve in large soup bowls with oyster crackers on the side.
