60 Biggest TikTok Viral Recipe Trends of 2021
The beauty of TikTok is that you just never know what you’re going to get. I held off getting the TikTok app because I thought it was only about dancing. Then, by word of mouth, I heard about the Nacho Table Trend and Whipped Coffee. All the chatter was enough to lure me in and I became an instant fan of this giant world of cooking videos.
These viral TikTok recipes are not the perfectly curated videos you will find on other social media channels though. These are tried-and-true recipes made by regular people; people looking to get tasty food on the table, no matter how pretty. And sometimes the best TikTok recipes are the ones that seem questionable, but actually turn out amazing. Ramen Lasagna, anyone?

You might expect to find recipe staples like perfectly-seared cast iron steaks, overnight oats and lots of “the best” potatoes. What you wouldn’t think to find are the real hidden gems of TikTok—such as Sheet Pan Pancakes, Chocolate Cloud Bread and even DIY Dr. Pepper! For all the questionable TikTok food and dessert recipes, there are actually plenty of delicious ones, which we’ve included here.

There’s everything from Pancake Cereal, Boat Dip and Ranch Water, to Watermelon White Claw Grapes and Air Fryer Corn Ribs. Then there are riffs on the original TikTok recipes that made it big, like a goat cheese version of Baked Feta Pasta. Whatever you decide to try from this list, the most important thing is to have fun—and maybe post your own video of the final dish. TikTok is always looking for new stars you know…
