Build Prepped Items
Most Menu Item recipes will call for use of prepped items. With Recipe Book, you can create all your recipes in one place. Start creating prepped item recipes before creating Menu Items to save time when building out Menu Items.
To begin creating a prepped recipe, select the Prepped item option from the add recipe page to load the prepped item recipe form.
Prepped recipe steps will be different than creating a Menu Item.
You have the option of adding an Image for each recipe.
Enter all ingredients used to create the batch.
Enter the amount of each ingredient to be used.
Select the measurement type for each ingredient added.
When using prepped items as ingredients in other prepped items, some prepped recipes will call for using a prepped item as an ingredient. Recipe Book allows you to use different measurement types to convert one measurement into another when logical.
If choosing a new measurement type for a prepped ingredient, pay attention to the original measurement type to ensure the qty of the new measurement is the correct amount of product going into your recipe.
