This was how I kept my guys from eating out. Only I used fresh potatoes and fried them on the stove top. It would do no good for me to have an average burger and fries at home, they'd still crave the restaurant version. So I sought out copy cat versions of restaurant foods. It did not make the foods any healthier, just less expensive.
zakity - if your family isn't too picky, finely dice up an onion and mix with the w sauce, italian seasoning and garlic powder
I agree, sometimes you just need that comfort of eating some good old blood pressure raising, artery clogging goodness. The bonus of eating out is that you don't have to cook it NOR clean up after - at least for me.
Thanks for sharing this! I'm a huge fan of burgers and didn't know I was paying that much more for a patty! Plus, if I make it myself I'll know exactly what's in there and can save money in the meantime too!
