Don’t get me wrong, I love to cook family meals as much as I can, but sometimes you just run out of time or you’ve had a long day at work and cooking that beef casserole really doesn’t seem as appealing as it did in the morning. This is usually the time that I reach for my phone and order my favourite curry or pizza from Hungry House. If I have the luxury of time, though, or I’m feeling extra creative (I’m a mum, it doesn’t happen a lot), I try and have a go at recreating some of my takeaway favourites. Feel the same? Why not try out one of these 25 simple takeaway recipes you can make at home?

Hungry yet? I hope this post gave you some inspiration for future fakeaways. Yep, that’s a real thing. Homemade takeaway recipes that are probably cheaper, healthier and more delicious than the dishes that you get from your local chippy or curry house. Plus, you’re usually quicker rustling them up yourself. Let’s faces, we’ve all sat at home thinking our local takeaway guy has forgotten about us.
Want to add the takeaway feeling? Grab some napkins, tinned drinks and plonk yourselves in front of the TV. No one sits at the dining table for the real takeaway experience, right? If you want to go the extra mile, grab some paper plates, so you don’t even have to do the washing up!
