I can’t think of a better place I enjoy stopping at when I travel. Cracker Barrel has one of the most delicious breakfast you can get out on the road. They serve breakfast like you wished you would make at home.

Truth be told, I hate to cook breakfast at home. First off, I am not really a morning person. I do good to let the dog out and make a cup of coffee, and eventually speech forms, which is often about 30 minutes after getting out of bed.

For me, cooking a meal first thing in the morning is inconceivable. So when I am out on the road, this type of sit down breakfast is exactly what I am looking for.

Another one of the reasons I really love the Cracker Barrel menu is because they often have seasonal favorites. They have a great knack of adding menu items like the pumpkin custard during the holidays or even their chocolate pecan pie is a holiday favorite.

So you know that you can always try something new when you go to the Cracker Barrel. I hope you give some of these recipes a try.

Here are some of my Cracker Barrel menu items I just love. I hope you enjoy many of these as well.

    Hi Stephanie,

    Almost every my friend and I go to Cracker Barrel for the Turkey dinner.
    I love their dressing and sweet potato casserole.
    Do you have these recipes?

  2. Marilyn Chalmers

    Ii would love to have the Cracker Barrel Buttermilk/Ranch Dressing recipe! Have you performed your magic and come up with it yet? Nice and “Ranchy”, but not too strong like some dressings can be! it’s just right!

    I would love to find a recipe for Cracker Barrel spiced apple tea. Unfortunately it is only available at their restaurant from November through the end of December. I thought how hard could it be to replicate it so I’ve tried but failed. It’s all in the spices but I just can not get it right.

    I would love the recipe for their chicken noodle soup. Stopped in there whilst on holiday and had the soup and a grilled cheese, best meal of my holiday. Bit of a long trek from the uk tho to go back for it again so being able to make it at home would be amazing!

  6. Judy

    Hi Stephanie,
    My family ate at Cracker Barrel tonight and I had the apple cider chicken for the first time and loved it! Have you ever tried making it? I am going to attempt it soon, the apple cranberry chutney that it comes with is also delicious!

  7. Jennifer

    I recently had the 3 Cheese Grilled Cheese Sandwich and would love to make this version at home. It was so good!!

  8. George Clark

    I stop everytime I’m around one of your restaurants, which are far away from Los Angeles.

    I’m very interested in what the use instead of salt. It would really be of help if I knew or purchase some.

    • Jamie

      I’m a bit late to answering this, but if you’re still wondering… They do now sell it in the retail part of the store for $3.99 a container. It tastes just like what they use in the restaurant, and it carries the CB label. It’s not homemade, since it’s packaged for sale, but it’s so good. xD
