Thank goodness for fast food at the drive thru – because that’s all you need to make a delicious appetizer, side dish and dessert. Read on for three fast food recipes guaranteed to hit the spot!


1. Arby’s Charcuterie Board


We’ll start with our appetizer – the McArby’s charcuterie board. As you may know, charcuterie is French for “smoked, cured meats” – and Arby’s is American for drive thru meats. Taking only five minutes to create, this is one of those fast food recipes that’s super easy to whip up!





2 Loaded Italian Sandwiches: Order without aioli, dressing or mayo; just plain meat and bread. Get the cheese slices on the side.

Extra banana pepper and pickles on the side

10 extra slices of cheese

4 cripsy bacon strips

2 plain sub rolls



4 packs of Happy Meal apple slices




Arrange ham, salami and pepperoni on a cutting board. Add the slices of cheese, sliced apples and banana peppers. Slice the rolls and add to the board. Arrange some toothpicks and fancy plastic plates next to this deluxe drive-thru charcuterie board!


2. The King and Colonel’s Mac ‘N Cheese


Next on our list of scrumptious fast food recipes: the King and Colonel’s Mac ‘N Cheese! First you’ll need KFC mac ‘n cheese, burger cheesy tots, a side of bacon, and a muffin tin. Then add your cheesy tots and fill with mac n’ cheese. Finally, top with a quarter strip of bacon. Then pop in the oven for 12 minutes at 350. You can whip these up in about 20 minutes!
