In separate pan, saute onion, garlic, until onion is tender. Stir in tomatoes, mushrooms, and spices. Saute until just done.

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Using a very sharp bread knife, split each pita bread so that you have two round flat pieces instead of one thick one. Place each piece of bread on a cookie sheet or pizza pan. Spread spinach sauce over each.

Top with tomato mixture, being careful to avoid the juice. Bake for 5 to 7 minutes. Watch closely so that the edges of the pita don't burn.

Applebee's Honey Barbecue Riblets


Barbecue Sauce

1 cup ketchup
1/4 cup water
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup corn syrup
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
2 teaspoons garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
2 tablespoons molasses
2 teaspoons dry mustard
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon liquid smoke flavor

Combine all ingredients in saucepan and simmer for 20 minutes.

Riblet (Rib) Preparation:

For rib tips ("riblets") and full racks, first season ribs with salt, pepper and garlic to taste. Then, sear the ribs on the grill/broiler until both sides are mahogany in color and the meat has begun to pull away from the bone (155 degrees F internal temperature).

Place ribs on rack in deep pan/roaster. Cover bottom of pan with mixture of water and liquid smoke flavoring (4:1 ratio of water to liquid smoke) without mixture touching the ribs (it will make them bitter). Seal tightly with two layers of foil wrap to cover.

Slow cook in 275 degree F oven until meat is tender. Time varies with how many ribs are being cooked, pan used and your oven temperature.

Plan on anywhere from two to five hours, but check to be sure. The slower, the better for this process.

Just make sure an internal food temperature of 155°F is maintained. (To moderate cooking for small amounts of ribs, try covering ribs with chopped onions, peppers and tomatoes. This also keeps them moist and adds a nice flavor).

When ribs are fully cooked and tender, remove from oven and finish off on grill/broiler until marrow in the bone tips "sizzles." Brush with Honey Barbecue Sauce just before removing for service.

Serve with your favorite side dishes. Applebee's serves their ribs with French fries, coleslaw and their special honey barbecue baked beans.

Enjoy!

Heat butter or margarine in a saute pan over medium heat (do not scorch). Add salt, sugar and garlic. Add vegetables (start with carrots and work back up the list - denser vegetables take longer to heat) and cook until hot, yet crisp.

When vegetables are all in pan and cooking, add Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce and parsley.

Mix thoroughly and serve.

Applebee's Deadly Chocolate Sin

2 tablespoons butter
6 ounces semi-sweet chocolate
2 ounces bitter chocolate
1 cup unsalted butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 eggs, at room temperature
4 egg yolks, at room temperature
1/2 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
6 tablespoons corn starch
1 10-ounce package frozen red raspberries in heavy syrup, thawed
1 pint fresh raspberries
12 triangular cookies or chocolate pieces
12 sprigs fresh mint

Butter (or coat with no-stick cooking spray) sides and bottoms of 12 4-ounce ramekins and set aside. In the top of a double boiler over simmering water, combine semi-sweet chocolate, bitter chocolate, butter and vanilla.

When butter and chocolate are melted, stir to blend and set aside.

In large bowl of mixer, combine eggs, egg yolks and brown sugar and beat on high 5-7 minutes or until thick and quadrupled in volume. Reduce speed to low and add cornstarch, one tablespoon at a time, beating to incorporate after each addition.

Increase speed to high and beat 5 minutes or until mixture stands in soft peaks. With a rubber spatula, fold the chocolate into the egg mixture, scraping the bottom and sides of bowl frequently. Divide batter between prepared ramekins and bake in preheated 375ºF oven 10 minutes (cake will be light crusted with a soft center). Remove from oven and cool.

Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until ready to serve, then run a knife blade around edges of cake to separate cake from ramekin. Invert ramekin on serving plate. Lift ramekin, leaving cake in center of plate.

Pour thawed raspberries in blender and puree. Strain and discard seeds. Ladle raspberry caulis around cake and garnish with fresh raspberries, triangular cookie or chocolate piece and mint.

Serves 12.

Applebee's Apple Chimi-Cheesecake

This is simple and easy. Make a cheesecake and add cooked apples to the cake. Omit the excess syrup filling. After it firms up, cut into pieces.

Wrap in a flour tortilla. Tie it up with string to hold it together so it will not come undone during frying.

Fry them in oil at 350 degrees F. Fry until golden brown and serve it with caramel sauce. You can use caramel topping for ice cream or you can make it yourself using soft caramels.

Melt them using a double broiler (this comes the closest to the caramel we use for the chimis at Applebee's).

Applebee's Lemonade

1 Quart water
1 cup sugar
1 cup FRESH lemon juice
Sparkling Water (not tonic water, like Perrier)

Mix first three together. Fill a tall glass 2/3 to 3/4 with Lemon mixture then fill with sparkling water.

An interesting variation is to puree some fruit (raspberries, strawberries, etc) with a little superfine or powdered sugar and put that in the glass before adding the lemonade and water.

Applebee's Blondie Brownies

1 cup all purpose flour

1/8 tsp salt

1/8 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp baking powder

1 cup of brown sugar

1/3 cup butter

1/4 cup margarine

1 medium to large egg

1/2 cup maple syrup

1 tbsp vanilla extract (the natural one rather than the vanilla flavoring)

1/2 cup white chocolate chunks or chips

1/2 cup walnuts

To make the Applebees blondie brownies:

Firstly preheat the oven to 350 and grease and line a 9 inch square brownie pan with greaseproof paper.

Step 1, combine the dry ingredients (the first 4 on the list above).

Melt the margarine, add brown sugar, vanilla extract and the egg and mix well.

Add in the flour gradually until you have a smooth batter mix. Then finally add the chocolate chips or chunks and then pour the mixture into a square, pre prepared pan and then bake in the preheated oven for 20 or 25 minutes. The top should look golden brown when done. You can insert a toothpick into the center to make sure that it is cooked OK.

These are great served with a big dollop or two of high quality vanilla ice cream over the just warm brownies. Thats the great thing about making recipes from applebees yourself – you can make as big or small portions as you like!

APPLEBEE'S QUESADILLA BURGER (copycat recipe)



Southwest Seasoned Burger (recipe for seasoning mix follows)
2 (10-inch) flour tortillas
2 tbsp butter, softened
1/3 cup shredded Pepper Jack cheese
1/3 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
1/2 medium tomato, chopped
2 tsp diced red onion
1 tsp diced canned jalapenos
1 slice bacon, cooked
FOR SERVING:
Pico de Gallo (recipe follows - prepare at least 6 hours before serving)
shredded lettuce
Mexi-Ranch Dressing

Make a hamburger using Southwest Seasoning. Cook burger; keep warm.

Heat a large frying pan over medium heat. Spread half the butter on one side of each tortilla. Put one tortilla, butter side down in the hot pan. Sprinkle the cheeses evenly onto the center of the tortilla in the pan - but not all the way to the edges.

Put the tomato, onion, bacon and jalapeno over the cheese, add the seasoned burger and cover with the other tortilla butter side up (like a grilled cheese sandwich).

When the bottom side is browned, about 45-90 seconds, flip the quesadilla and grill the other side. Remove the quesadilla from the pan and, using a pizza cutter, cut through the middle like a pizza. Serve with Pico de Gallo

SOUTHWEST SEASONING MIX

2 tablespoons chili powder
2 teaspoons ground cumin
2 tablespoons paprika
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 tablespoon ground coriander
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon crushed red pepper
1 tablespoon salt
1 tablespoon dried oregano

Combine all ingredients and use to season hamburger.

PICO DE GALLO

2 cups diced very ripe tomato, 1/4-inch cubes
1 cup diced red onion, 1/4-inch cubes
6 to 10 jalapeno peppers, finely chopped
3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
2 tbsp chopped fresh cilantro
2 tbsp salt
OPTIONAL ADDITIONS:
1 tbsp lime juice
1 Habanero pepper
1/2 can whole kernel corn, drained
1/2 can black beans, rinsed and drained

Mix all ingredients together and refrigerate at least six hours. Keeps refrigerated for 4-5 days.

note - mexi-ranch dressing is equal parts ranch and salsa. That's it. No extra spices or anything. The key is to have a creamy and non-tangy ranch dressing along with a salsa that is not too chunky. Then it will have the right consistency.

Applebee's Boneless Wings

Yield: 2 to 4 servings

1 cup flour
2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1 egg
1 cup milk
2 chicken breast fillets
4 to 6 cups vegetable oil
1/4 cup hot sauce or to taste
1 tablespoon margarine

Combine flour, salt, peppers and paprika in a medium bowl.

In a small bowl, whisk together milk and eggs.

Slice each chicken breast into 6 pieces.

Preheat between 4 to 6 cups of vegetable oil in a deep fryer to 375 degrees F.

One or two at a time, dip each piece of chicken into the egg mixture, then into the breading; then repeat the process so each piece of the chicken is coated twice. When all chicken pieces have been breaded, arrange them on a plate and chill for 15 minutes

When the chicken is done chilling, drop each piece into the hot oil and fry for 5 to 6 minutes or until each piece has browned.

As the chicken fries, combine the hot sauce and margarine in a small bowl. Microwave sauce for 20 to 30 seconds or just until the margarine is melted, then stir to combine

Combine the hot sauce and margarine in a small saucepan over low heat and stir until margarine is melted and ingredients are blended

When chicken pieces are done frying, remove them to a plate lined with a couple paper towels.

Place the chicken pieces into a covered container such as a large jar with a lid. Pour the sauce over the chicken in the container, cover, and then shake gently until each piece of chicken is coated with sauce

Pour the chicken onto a plate and serve with bleu cheese dressing and 3 inch celery stalk pieces on the side.
