Panera Bread Copycat Recipes

Panera Bread has to be one of my favorite restaurants. Their food is wholesome, and they are one of the few restaurants removing additives that don’t need to be in your food.

When it comes to going out to eat this restaurant is often on the top of my list. Here are a few of the reasons why.

    I would love a recipe for their Cranberry Orange Muffins! I have tried several recipes from the internet and they aren’t close to the ones from Panera.

    Since Panera took over the Paradise Bakery restaurants in AZ, I can’t find any place that can compare to the Paradise Bakery chicken salad, best EVER!!!!! It was served on a dark molasses bread. Again, I’ve been unable to duplicate that. If you, or anyone, knows of similar chicken salad or molasses bread recipes, please share! Thanks!!!

    Please looking for a recipe for a bread some one that gave me a slice of when I was in a rehab for an over dose of pain med. The person that gave me a slice of your delicious bread was sweet as I remember it had raisins and walnuts.I go to different Panera but they don’t have or don’t know of any bread with those ingredients. Is t there such a bread and if so can I get the recipe?

      Panera Tomato Basil Bread

      .1 (.25 ounce) package active dry yeast
      .1/4 cup warm water (105 degrees to 115 degrees)
      2 cups warm tomato juice (110 to 115 degrees F)
      1/4 cup ketchup
      1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
      3 tablespoons sugar
      2 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
      1 teaspoon salt
      1/2 teaspoon dried basil
      1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
      6 3/4 cups all-purpose flour

      In a mixing bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add the tomato juice, ketchup, Parmesan cheese, sugar, butter, salt, basil, oregano and 3 cups flour. Beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1-1/4 hours. Punch dough down. Divide in half. Cover and let rest for 10 minutes. Shape into loaves. Place in two greased 9-in. x 5-in. x 3-in. loaf pans. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour. Bake at 375 degrees F for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool.

    Did you develop a recipe for Panera’s Asian-Sesame salad dressing? If so could you post it or send it to me? Thanks –

    No Panera in Utah that I know of, so I’ve never had any of these things, but your versions sure look good. Pinned!
