Applebee's Create Your Own Grill Masterpiece

This lineup is all about mix-n-match meats and sides.

Applebee’s Neighborhood Grill & Bar this week staged a massive menu overhaul that included the installation of new wood fired grills across the nearly 2,000 unit domestic system.

Hand-cut steak has become the star of the show on the new menu, along with wood-grilled pork chops, salmon and chicken. Supported by a national advertising campaign, company officials hope the rebranding will turn around falling same-store sales for Applebee’s.

Here's how the menu works.

1. CHOOSE A GRILL ITEM:

Sirloin Steak (12, 8 or 6 ounce)
Bone in Pork Chop
Grilled Chicken Breast
Cedar Grilled Salmon
Double Glazed Baby Back Ribs

2. CHOOSE 2 SIDES:

New Garlicky Green Beans
New Hearty grains and Rice
BBQ Spiced or Classic Fries

Applebees Takeout App

Applebee's rolls out app tailored to takeout. Customers can pay ahead, easing carside-to-go service.

Applebee’s Neighborhood Grill & Bar on Monday rolled out a new mobile app that will allow customers to pay ahead, making it faster and easier to order carside-to-go pick up.

The company said the new app, developed with digital ordering provider Olo, makes ordering easier, faster and safer for users, allowing them to save credit, debit or gift card details within the app for easy payment.

Customers can set up an order days or weeks in advance.

With the pay-ahead feature in place, the chain has also been marketing its carside-to-go program, which has been in place at Applebee’s restaurants for years.

In the past, customers could pull into designated parking spaces to pick up take-out orders in a hurry, but they had to pay at the restaurant.

With the new app, users can order and pay through the app, and pull into the carside-to-go parking space and either run in to pick up their order faster, or have restaurant staff bring it to the car.

Tuscan Cheese Spread


TUSCAN CHEESE SPREAD
Applebee's Copycat Recipe

Tomatoes with Balsamic Glaze:
4 Roma tomatoes finely dices
1/4 Of a medium red onion finely diced
1/4-1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
1 1/2 teaspoons butter
1/4 teaspoon basil leaves
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
5-10 good twists of McCormick's Italian Herb Seasoning Grinder 
pinch of salt

Cheese Spread:
1 package cream cheese (no need to soften you'll be microwaving a bit)
1-2 teaspoons McCormick's Garlic and Herb seasoning (Start with 1 and add accordingly by your tastes)
5-10 Good twists of McCormick's Italian Herb Seasoning Grinder 
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon dried basil leaves
pinch of salt
Parmesan and Romano cheese 
toasted ciabatta bread

Preheat the oven broiler.

For the tomatoes with balsamic glaze:  Slice and dice tomatoes and onions and place in bowl with a tight lid and set aside. Place balsamic vinegar, butter, basil leaves, McCormick's Italian Herb Seasoning and pinch of salt in a sauce pan and heat to a hard boil. Shouldn't take long. When butter has melted, add diced tomatoes and onion to boiling sauce and boil no more than 10 seconds. Pour into bowl and place lid on tight and let stew while you finish spread.

For the cheese spread: Place cream cheese in microwavable oven safe baking dish and add McCormick's Garlic and Herb seasoning, McCormick's Italian Herb Seasoning Grinder, garlic powder and dried basil leaves. Do not mix yet. Microwave 25-40 seconds or just until softened. Use a whisk to mix it all together really good and taste...Add more seasoning just a little bit at a time to suit your taste. Sprinkle with a good coating of Parmesan cheese to cover the top.

Set under oven broiler about 2 minutes just until parmesan starts to brown a little bit. Be careful not to burn it. Slice rolls in half and toast in a toaster or under the already preheated broiler(about 1 to 1 1/2 minutes). Dump sliced tomatoes and onion with balsamic glaze and all on top of cheese spread or keep separate.
