pancake house spaghetti

And who does not love Pancake House’s Spaghetti and… Jollibee? I love them both, they both share the same intensity of sweetness I like even when I was a kid.

I can always make Jollibee spaghetti at home by adding spoonfuls of sugar and bright colored hotdogs but Pancake’s House spaghetti is a little tricky… Did you notice that their sauce is a bit orange and tastes more beefy?  I do! Everytime Slide and I eat out at Pancake House I always ask him if he can figure out its special ingredients (Slide has a talent in guessing recipes.).

Yesterday when I was going over my favorite food blogs I saw a post on Pancake House’s spaghetti recipe, I had Slide looked at it and he said he thought it had liver, I saw a blog comment of the same post that also thought there was liver.  So I thought I make Pancake House’s spaghetti for dinner by following the recipe and adding some Reno liver spread.   And guess what? It was close!

It’s not exactly the same taste but close, very, very close…

If you want to try it yourself the recipe is just below this post if you copy Pancake House’s spaghetti recipe 100% I will appreciate if you will share it with me too.

Good luck and happy cooking!
