30 Copycat Recipes for Popular Restaurant Dishes

Buzzfeed collected 30 recipe guestimates for food favorites from popular restaurant chains. Sometimes these approximations taste close enough to the real thing to satisfy cravings. Even if one tries the copycat recipe and feels that it's a bit off, it's a great starting point from which to add or subtract ingredients and try again. Practice makes perfect... and something tells me even the practice runs of these dishes will be pretty tasty.

Below is the recipe of the dipping sauce for Outback's Bloomin' Onion, which originated on the Domestic Superhero blog. See the full Buzzfeed article for all 30 recipes.
