8 Delicious and Easy TikTok Food Trends to Try
1. Baked Feta Pasta
If there's one viral TikTok dish you've likely heard of it's the Baked Feta Pasta. Originating from Finland, this foolproof recipe is great for dinner parties, or late work nights because you can prepare it without really having to pay much attention.
The recipe involves tossing cherry tomatoes with olive oil, salt and pepper into a baking dish. Place a block of feta in the middle and pop it into the oven for 35 minutes. Once cooked, stir through basil, garlic, and your pasta of choice.
You can easily experiment with other ingredients of your choosing like burrata, roasted vegetables, rosemary, and mushrooms.
2. Dalgona candy
You've probably already heard about the Dalgona coffee trend made by whipping equal parts instant coffee powder, sugar, and hot water. But this is the South Korean candy - A crackly, honeycomb-like sweet made from melted sugar that's frothed up with a pinch of baking soda. Interest in the candy has had a major spike since the debut of the Netflix drama “Squid Game” in which the Dalgona candy game (known as ppopgi in Korea) is played.

3. Birria tacos
Who doesn't love authentic Mexican food? It's delicious, fun, and vibrant. Originating from the state of Jalisco, birria tacos are pan-fried corn tortillas traditionally filled with goat, but in more recent iterations with tender beef or lamb, copious amounts of cheese, and served with a side of broth for dipping. Sounds delicious, right?

4. Pancake cereal
This recipe is entirely unnecessary, but it's also adorable and that's partly why we love it. Admittedly it's just mini pancakes that can be eaten the same way as cereal, but that hasn't stopped it from gaining over a billion views. We personally would rather go the maple syrup than milk route as well.

5. Spicy Corn Ribs
One for the vegetarians, these corny delights are reportedly the creation of Max Ng, an executive chef at the Momofuku Ssam Bar in New York City. That's reason enough for you to give them a try. The recipe involves dousing cut corn with a spicy oil mixture and either frying, baking, or air-frying them until they are nice and crispy. Serve them up with a chipotle mayo or your preferred dipping sauce.

6. Pesto eggs
Egg lovers will get excited by this extremely simple breakfast dish that will elevate your standard morning meal. The added pesto adds a massive flavour boost to traditional fried eggs. All you do is take a couple of spoonfuls of pesto, heat it in a hot pan, then add eggs. That's it. The result is eggs that are fried up in the delicious pine nut and basil oil.
7. Pasta chips
Probably not how you'd expect to be told to cook your pasta, but you'll be pleasantly surprised with the results. The recipe sees cooked pasta tossed with olive oil, parmesan cheese, and spices popped into an air fryer. You can also mix up your seasoning, experiment with different pasta shapes, and choose whichever dipping sauce tickles your fancy.

8. Fried pickles
We'd argue that pickles are perfectly delicious as is, but anything fried tastes just that bit better. These tasty snacks are treated the same way you would a schnitzel; with an egg wash, seasoned flour, and seasoned panko crumbs. You can fry these the standard way or pop them in the air fryer as shown in the video. Serve with ranch or tzatziki.
