Ruby Tuesday's Copycat Recipes

Ruby Tuesday Restaurant Background

Ruby Tuesday recipes are reminiscent of comfort food and gatherings with family and friends. The first Ruby Tuesday restaurant was opened in 1972 by five University of Tennessee students. The casual dining restaurant was named after the Rolling Stones song of the same title. Ruby Tuesday specialized in American type foods and dishes. Ruby Tuesday restaurants are now located around the world.

If you don't have a Ruby Tuesday restaurant near you, or you just can't afford to eat out all of the time, try some of these copycat Ruby Tuesday restaurant recipes. Some of the secret recipes include Ruby Tuesday mashed cauliflower and a Ruby Tuesday Fudge Brownie Pie recipe clone. Also try out the mixed drink recipes as well as Ruby Tuesday main dish copycat recipes. Ruby Tuesday chicken quesadillas also have a copycat recipe here.

I also have to get the recipe for the parmesan chicken pasta! When I had it for the first time there(my first time there) I said that I would never be ordering anything different after that. So the next time we went there,we went because that's what I was in the mood for. I tried to order it but they no longer had it. The waitress said they had something similar so I ordered that... let's just say I havn't gone back. My e-mail is ASAP PLEASE

Ruby Greg 8 years ago

Does anyone know the recipe for the garlic mayo?? If so please e-mail me!!

Heather 7 years ago

Having used to work at Ruby Tuesday, I can tell you the ham & pea salad dressing is half heavy mayo & half ranch dressing. That's it.

Heather 7 years ago

The "peas" on the salad bar that are next to the real peas are actually edemame (soybeans). The pumpernickel croutons are deep fried pumpernickel bread cubed then salted immediately after deep frying.

Jess 7 years ago

Actually, the croutons are garlic salted, not just regular salt, immediately after bring fried... and if you get them while they're still soft and warm out of the fryer... OMG. You will want thiem that way forever... I used to bartend there a few years back. They were a favorite snack.

Donna 7 years ago

Mary in AZ 6 years ago

The chef at our Ruby Tuesdays here in AZ told me that the dressing mixture for the salad bar rotini pasta salad is equal parts mayo and ranch dressing. No sour cream. Add diced green peppers, peas, turkey ham, and salt and pepper to taste. No cheese. And, it's delicious.
