15 Copycat McDonald's Recipes

Discover the homemade recipes for some of the most iconic fast food items of all time

15 Copycat McDonalds Recipes

McDonald's was a fast food pioneer, and many of their menu items have become truly iconic, but getting your hands on those delicious classics is not always as easy as it seems. Whether the item you want is out of season, has been discontinued entirely, or is just too pricey for your monthly budget, your limitations probably don't do much to calm your cravings. 

No need to worry, though, these 15 Copycat McDonald's Recipes are exactly what you've been looking for! Copycat recipes are delicious, cheap, and, best of all, satisfy all those nagging nostalgic cravings

Keep scrolling and you'll unlock the secrets of all-time favorites, long-gone treats, elusive cult classics, and simply satisfying staples. Treat yourself and anyone else lucky enough to be around you while you're making these delicious homemade recipes. None of you will be able to make up your mind on whether you like the original or the copycat version more.

Copycat Appetizers, Sides, and Sauces

The McDonald's experience is about more than just burgers. Lighter foods, desserts, and sauces are all incredibly important to the fast food giant's success. 

Of course, even their burgers often rely on specialty sauces. Take the Big Mac, for example! Thankfully, even this "secret sauce" isn't so secret anymore....

Copycat Burgers and Sandwiches

These are the classics. Some of these burgers and sandwiches have stuck around for as long as we can remember because of just how iconic (and incredibly tasty!) they are. Others still have a devoted following of fans despite being gone from the standard menu for years. Whatever flavor you're after, you'll find it here. 

Copycat Drinks

For a fast food restaurant, McDonald's has shockingly good drink options. Put away that coke and pick up these homemade versions of classic chilled Mcdonald's drinks. Most of these are only available a tragically short time during the year, so it's a good thing we've cracked the code.
