Now, I don’t have any numbers to back this up, but I’d bet America has more chain restaurants than anywhere else, and quite the variety of them. But when it comes to sought-after chain restaurant recipes, only six of them have us searching.

And the Colonel’s 11 herbs and spices are still the number one mystery, says Yahoo.

STUART: Oh, how I hated the Colonel! With his wee beady eyes, and that smug look on his face. ‘Oh, you’re gonna buy my chicken!’

CHARLIE: Dad how can you hate the Colonel?

STUART: Because he puts an addictive chemical in his chicken that makes you crave it fortnightly, smart-ass!

                  (Mike Myers gives himself a lesson in "So I Married An Axe Murderer")

And Stuart might be right, "Kentucky Fried Chicken Recipe" tops the chain-restaurant recipe searches, everybody trying to figure out what that addictive chemical is. (This is rather amusing to native Kentuckians, as the Colonel’s chicken couldn’t hold a candle to Mom’s – but we will drop into KFC when we’re late for a potluck, anyway.)

As for the rest of the top ten, well, there’s only five others restaurants on it. Maybe all those restaurateurs out there are underestimating the public’s desire for variety. (Hush your mouth! says Mama. Everywhere you go already’s got the same menu as the place ya went last Sunday.)

Anyway, here are the top 10 restaurant recipe searches, according to Yahoo:

1.    Kentucky Fried Chicken Recipe
2.    Olive Garden Alfredo Sauce Recipe
3.    Red Lobster Shrimp Scampi Recipe
4.    Wendy’s Chili Recipe
5.    KFC Coleslaw Recipe
6.    Cracker Barrel Recipes
7.    Starbucks Recipes
8.    Olive Garden Minestrone Soup Recipe
9.    Olive Garden Chicken Marsala Recipe
10.    Red Lobster Recipes
