Everything in Disney is perfect. The food is no exception. Have you ever watched Princess and the Frog and wonder what classic gumbo tastes like? What about the beignets? If you’re a real foodie, you’ve always wanted to reach into the movie and try some of these amazing dishes. No fear, we compiled a list of 12 iconic dishes for you to replicate. These are the recipes that will bring the magic from the movie screen straight into your kitchen.
1. Lady and the Tramp – Spaghetti and Meatballs
Perhaps one of the greatest love stories in animated movie history, Lady and Tramp captured our stomachs in this famous scene. Who can forget the two pups slurping up the same spaghetti noodle and Tramp nudging over the last meatball to Lady? Now that is real puppy love. This movie proves that all you need is a plate of spaghetti and meatballs for a romantic night. You can’t go wrong with a classic Italian dish.
2. Alice in Wonderland – Sugar Cookies
Unfortunately, these magical cookies do not make you grow in size, but it might, however, make your stomach grow from eating too many. Like Alice, we simply cannot pass up these beautiful cookies. C’mon now, EAT ME is written all over them. You can’t tell me that you never wanted to take a bite.
3. A Goofy Movie – Cheese Pizza
We may or may not have gotten our cheese addiction from watching A Goofy Movie. Who can forget the unlimited amount of canned cheese and the oh so popular leaning tower of Cheeza? A warm, ooey, gooey, slice of pizza is exactly what every cheese lover needs.
4. Mulan – Breakfast Porridge
When we watched this scene in Mulan, all we could think about was the bacon. Did it even exist in ancient China? It really doesn’t matter because everyone deserves to enjoy the deliciousness of bacon – that includes Mulan. Maybe if we eat a smiley face shaped breakfast every morning we could be as badass as Mulan and save the country.
5. Kim Possible – Nacos
“Taco meets nacho. I call it the ‘Naco’!” Invented by Ron Stoppable, it is created by taking nacho chips and cheese, mixing them with the fillings of a taco, and placing it all in a tortilla. It is no surprise that this Mexican hybrid won everyone over. Who doesn’t love tacos and nachos? Putting them together is genius.
6. Ratatouille – Remy’s Ratatouille
Most people probably had no idea what ratatouille was before watching this movie. It is a stewed vegetable dish that includes onions, zucchinis, tomatoes, bell peppers, and eggplants. Remy makes this French dish look so good that even the pickiest eaters would want to try it. If a rat can make it, so can you.
7. Brave – Iced Rolls
Remember how eager Merida’s triplet brothers were to get their hands on these iced buns? Who can blame them? These sweet pastries look so good. The triplets are super adorable and always ready to stir up a bit of mischief, especially if sweets are at stake. We can’t help but to steal the recipe and try them for ourselves.
8. Beauty and the Beast – Grey Stuff
“Try the Grey Stuff… It’s Delicious!” What really is the grey stuff? We have solved the food mystery for you. It is a mysterious Oreo dessert similar to a pudding. Yes, it tastes just as good as it sounds. Don’t believe me? Ask the dishes! Although we can’t try this delicacy at the Be Our Guest restaurant in Magic Kingdom, we can still remake something similar at home.
9. Princess and the Frog – Beignets
Tiana’s passion for cooking and her determination to open a restaurant makes it easy for us to fall in love with her character. It also helps that this is all set in the beautiful New Orleans. The fact that Charlotte paid Tiana to make 500 of her famous beignets for the masquerade ball says something about her talent. These pillows of heaven are worth every calorie.
10. Emperor’s New Groove – Spinach Puffs
If you’ve ever watched The Emperor’s New Groove, you definitely know Kronk and his spinach puffs. All he ever wanted was to be a chef, but instead he worked as Yzma’s henchman. His caring nature and comedic efforts won us over and so did his amazing spinach puffs.
11. The Chronicles of Narnia – Turkish Delights
One of the biggest plot twists in Disney movie history: Edmund betrays his family for these Turkish delights. They must be the bomb then, right? This treat is a sweet sugar gel that contains fruit or nuts and covered in confectioner’s sugar. Lets just say that it is for those with a BIG sweet tooth.
12. High School Musical – Creme Brulee
High school Musical, one of the BEST Disney movies of all times, had us singing and dancing along from the very start. There is no way that Zeke’s crème brulee would not make it on this list. What is not to love about a cold vanilla custard with a caramelized sugar crust top? Don’t stick to the status quo, Zeke. You do you.
