TikTok has made us do a lot of things. Whether that's learning a new dance challenge, ordering that new product everyone's raving about, trying out that nifty home hack, or attempting to whip up the latest viral food recipe.
But TBH, our favorite part is finding the (sometimes ridiculous) recipes that come out of the video-sharing app. From the latest baked feta pasta craze, the dozens of desert recipes we've seen pop-up on our "for you page," to the one that perhaps started it all (yes, we're looking at you, Dalgona coffee), there's never a shortage of new things to try out.
Video of the Day
We've compiled 10 fan favorites. Check them out below.
1. Baked Feta Pasta
Let's start this off with the TikTok recipe of the moment. The baked feta pasta recipe first went viral from the cooking account @cookingwithayeh. It currently has more than 12 million views and counting. The simple recipe gained so much popularity that many other TikTok creators have put their own spin on it using goat and burrata cheese instead of feta. Others have also switched up the rest of the ingredients, substituting the cherry tomatoes with strawberries, mushrooms, and butternut squash.
2. Focaccia Garden
Another recipe that made rounds on TikTok was this creative spin on focaccia bread using it as a canvas for beautiful art made out of herbs, vegetables, and sauces. TikTok user @bakingwithharry created this lovely garden on focaccia bread using cherry tomatoes, colorful peppers, onions, rosemary, and asparagus.
3. Spicy Rigatoni with a Vodka Sauce
Depending on who you're talking to, this recipe might also be known as "Gigi Hadid's Spicy Vodka Pasta," after the model shared the recipe to her Instagram story last year. Names aside, this recipe is easy to make (just make sure you have vodka handy) and so, so, savory. You'll be making this dish every other night, TBH.
4. Pancake Cereal
We can always count on TikTok to have some of the most unique, delicious, and easy-to-make dessert recipes. Last year, this pancake cereal recipe took over the internet. And honestly, it might even be easier to make these cute lil' pancakes than regular-sized ones. Try it with milk (or your fave milk alternative) or serve them with syrup — it'll be delicious either way.
5. Olive Garden's Fettucine Alfredo Pasta
Who doesn't love Olive Garden? And who wouldn't love to know how to make our favorite restaurant dishes right at home? Thanks to TikTok user @mamainthekitchen, now we can have Olive Garden's famous fettucine alfredo pasta from the comfort of our own home, whenever we have a craving.
If you're ever craving homemade chocolate chip cookies but feel too overwhelmed by the thought of all the ingredients you'll need, look to this simple TikTok recipe by user @vallamo. All you need is five ingredients: brown sugar, peanut butter, an egg, baking soda, and chocolate chips. Get to baking.
7. Takis in Jalapeño with Cream Cheese
Now here's a recipe that doesn't require you to pop anything in the oven — and it comes with an extra kick. At some point last year, someone thought to cut the stem off a jalapeño, stuff it with cream cheese and Takis, spicy rolled corn tortilla chips. While it might not have been a good idea for our heartburn, it was delicious nonetheless.
8. Cloud Bread
Perhaps one of the most satisfying and dreamiest recipes that we learned on TikTok in the past year was this Cloud Bread recipe. It's not only pretty simple, but you can also tailor it to your choosing. Want your cloud bread to be pink instead of blue, or include all the colors of the rainbow? No problem, just grab some food dye and you're good to go.
9.Tortilla Wrap Hack
The "Tortilla Trend," also known as the tortilla wrap hack, was something we didn't know we needed. The concept is simple: You cut a slit down the middle of the tortilla and fill each quarter with your favorite ingredients. Then you fold each quarter onto themselves until you have your multi-layer wrap. TikTok user @snackqween tried it out with her favorite Chic-Fil-A menu items, and it looks like a masterpiece, TBH.
10. Whipped Coffee
Of course, no list of recipes found on TikTok is complete without whipped coffee, also known as Dalgona Coffee. It blew our minds when lockdowns and quarantines first went into effect due to the coronavirus pandemic. It became our go-to drink. And if you still haven't tried it yourself, check out our list of everything you need to make the perfect morning pick-me-up.
