Homemade Cinnabon Buns
If you went to the mall and you didn’t get a Cinnabon cinnamon roll, did you really go to the mall? Enjoy that sweet, spiced, super-soft bun anytime with this copycat recipe. For a fantastic make-ahead breakfast, whip up a pan of these rolls ahead of time, par-bake until they are puffed but not completely cooked, and freeze. Just pull them from the freezer and finish baking when you’re ready to eat.
Instant Pot Thai Chicken Curry
Thai curries are a popular dish on takeout menus and may seem intimidating to make at home. This Instant Pot recipe makes preparation simple and cooking time quick. All of the traditional flavors, including coconut milk, fish sauce, ginger, and lime and lemon juice, cook along with the chicken and vegetables to create a warming stew with a bit of spice. Perfect served over rice.
Homemade Doner Kebab
The Doner kebab sandwich is the mother of all Middle Eastern shawarma, Mexican al pastor, and Greek gyro street food sandwiches. Made with shaved meat wrapped up in pita or flatbread with tomatoes, cucumber, yogurt sauce, and red onion, it’s a great food to eat on the go. Making it at home can take some improvisation, but the results are well worth it.
Pull-Apart Mini Big Macs
Try these pull-apart miniature Big Mac sandwiches for the big game or any casual get-together. They’ve got all of the flavors you love from McDonald’s with meaty beef, pickles, shredded lettuce, cheese, and onions, all on that sesame seed bun. Serve them alongside a big batch of shoestring French fries for a fast-food feast at home.
