Over half of Americans think they have a family recipe worthy of being sold in a five-star restaurant, according to new research.

The survey asked 2,000 Americans about their cooking habits and found 53 percent of those polled think they have a recipe that can wow a professional chef, SWNS reported.

In fact, 46 percent of respondents believe they have the gusto of a professional chef themselves.

Conducted by OnePoll on behalf of Naked Bacon, the survey also asked respondents to share these world-class recipes.

From homemade chicken and dumplings to a more extravagant bacon-wrapped elk loin, the survey found that the average family recipe has been passed down for nearly 40 years.

Other iconic family recipes respondents shared included sweets like pecan pie and an apple blueberry cobbler.

As time in quarantine drags on, over half of those polled shared they’ve used this time to reconnect with their iconic family recipes.

Respondents said they have an average of four go-to family recipes they whip out when duty calls and 68 percent said they frequently make dinners their parents used to make for them as a kid.

And as they’ve grown up, so have their tastes; 72 percent of respondents said they’ve finally grown to like the foods they used to despise as a child.

Despite their evolving taste buds and affinity for family recipes, 75 percent of respondents said they feel like they cook the same things over and over again.

Fifty-seven percent of respondents said they’re in a rut with their breakfast choices especially.

Half of those surveyed shared they can’t remember the last time they took a risk in the kitchen and tried something new.

But now, with time at home, they're ready!
