Five TikTok Food Trends to Try
Food is a top trend on social media – especially TikTok, which features recipes from around the world. The platform exposes people of all ages and backgrounds to different cuisines and makes it easy to find and save recipes. Here are some trendy TikTok foods that you can try at home!
Loaded Potato Soup
Loaded potato soup is a classic choice for potato and cheese lovers. This TikTok Loaded Baked Potato Soup is one food trend that became popular during Fall 2022. You can prepare the soup in either a Dutch oven or a crock-pot using the same ingredients as a baked potato: potato, chives, sour cream, butter, and cheese. Create the perfect consistency by adding heavy cream and your choice of broth. You can add additional ingredients or seasonings to personalize your loaded potato soup.
Sushi rolls are great, but this TikTok Sushi Bake is the next big thing! The dish became popular in Fall 2022 for its various ingredient combinations. The classic sushi bake stacks white rice, cream cheese, imitation crab, Kewpie mayonnaise, sesame oil, sriracha, and Furikake rice seasoning in a baking dish. It is baked in the oven and served with a side of nori, also known as dried seaweed.
When life gives you lemons, make lemon pasta? This TikTok Lemon Pasta has taken over both TikTok and Instagram Reels. The creaminess (and touch of freshness) is what has many obsessed with this Southern Italian dish, which was made popular last year by TikToker Emily Mariko . Many food creators have made their own version of the dish, but common ingredients include lemons, garlic, butter, and Parmesan cheese. If you want to spice up your pasta, simply add chili flakes.
If you miss sitting around a campfire, this delicious dessert is sure to satisfy your craving. The TikTok Smore’s Dip has been popular since TikTok first started in 2020 but regained popularity over the holidays. The ingredients are chocolate, marshmallows, and graham crackers, just like regular s’mores. The dessert is cooked in the oven until all ingredients are melted. Have your graham crackers ready to dip!
The perfect sandwich is hard to find, but many say the TikTok Grinder Sandwich is their favorite. Inspired by the Italian grinder salad, this sandwich became popular in Spring and Summer of 2022. Ingredients for the salad include garlic, mayonnaise, oregano, red wine vinegar, lettuce, red onions, salt, pepper, Pepperoncini peppers, Italian seasoning, and red chili flakes, while the sandwich roll contains salami, prosciutto, pepperoni, and provolone cheese. This grinder salad sandwich is a great way to get your Italian-style sub fix.
