14 Junk Food Recipes That Taste So Good

I earn commissions for purchases made through links in this post.

I eat pretty healthy throughout the week; however, every Friday night I treat myself to a junk food recipe of my choice.

I don’t buy fast food very often. I actually prefer to make my meals at home. I think that fast food made at home taste so much better than takeout.

The recipes that I’m sharing below may not be good for you, but they taste so good.

Butter Burger Recipe

These burgers are so simple and so delicious. This burger is called a butter burger for a reason. It’s absolutely smothered in butter. This buttery burger is topped with melty cheese and onions. Get the recipe from The Cookie Rookie.

Cheese Fries with Bacon

Who doesn’t love fully loaded cheese fries? Crispy french fries are topped with cheese, bacon, green onions, and ranch dressing. I love serving these fries on movie night. They’re always a big hit. Get the recipe from Dinner at the Zoo.


Best Chicken Strips

Chicken tenders are my favorite junk food meal. I love when they’re tender and juicy on the inside and crispy on the outside. Dip these best chicken strips in your favorite dipping sauce. Get the recipe from Butter with a Side of Bread.

Cheesy Garlic Breadsticks

If you love breadsticks, you have to make these cheesy garlic breadsticks. They are loaded with melted cheese and taste great alone or dipped in marinara sauce. Get the recipe from Mother Thyme.

Chick-fil-A Crispy Chicken Sandwich Copycat

This recipe is perfect for fans of the Chick-fil-A crispy chicken sandwich. A perfectly seasoned and fried chicken breast sits on a bed of lettuce, tomato, and pickles. It’s so good. Get the recipe from Tastes Better From Scratch.

This easy Philly cheesesteak sandwich is so tender and flavorful. The sandwich is loaded with tender meat, onions, mushrooms, and cheese. Serve with your favorite chips. Get the recipe from Butter Be Ready.

If you’ve got some leftover chili, use it to make these chili stuffed garlic dough balls. These chili dough balls are so easy to make and are the perfect junk food treat. Dip them in ranch or blue cheese dressing. Get the recipe from Don’t Go Bacon My Heart.

Lunch Lady Brownies

I actually didn’t grow up eating lunch lady brownies, but by the looks of this picture, I sure wish I did. These brownies are moist, full of chocolate, and so good. Get the recipe from Life in the Lofthouse.

These Big Mac sliders look so good. I actually plan to make these this weekend. They’re everything you love about the classic Big Mac burger, but in mini form. Get the recipe from Family Fresh Meals.
