Although TikTok is one of the newer social media platforms that just launched in 2016, it has a high level of engagement. It is owned by the Chinese company ByteDance. The platform is like a shortened version of YouTube. It allows users to share short videos of everything that interests them. So if you’re looking for cooking inspiration, there’s a ton of content on the site. To make things even easier for you, we’ve done the research and put together a list of our ten favorite easy recipes on TikTok for when you need cooking inspiration.

Pesto Eggs

I don’t know about you guys, but if I can’t think of anything to cook, I always use eggs. I always have them on hand and they are a good source of protein. This pesto spider on eggs elevates them in a big way. It was originally posted by Amy Wilichowski (@amywilichowski). It’s pretty easy to cook eggs in some pesto and add some goat cheese. Put that on toast and you’ve got a meal that rivals the best brunch spot in town.

Baked Feta Pasta

This viral recipe was made known via Finland by two bloggers @liemessa in 2019 and @tiiupiret in 2018. It made the leap to TikTok and caused a shortage of feta cheese blocks in stores at the peak of its popularity. This recipe lives up to the hype and is so easy to make. Simply bake a block of feta cheese with tomatoes, basil and garlic. Throw it in some pasta and viola you’re an Italian chef.

Oreo Mug Cake

If you ever feel like something sweet but don’t want to make yourself a big old cake, mug cakes are the answer. This recipe puts an oreo twist on the classic mug cake. It’s that easy with just two ingredients: milk and oreos. Perfect for when that chocolate craving suddenly hits and you need something quick.

Another great mug cake recipe is the cinnamon roll in a mug. Homemade cinnamon rolls are so labor-intensive that it’s nice to have an easier alternative. Some tips for this recipe include using a smaller mug and butter or cooking spray to keep the sides from sticking to the mug. Before starting the recipe, gather all of your ingredients to make the cooking process smoother.

Elote Sweet Corn Ribs

Corn is such a great summer or really any time of year food. Take your corn to the next level with this easy recipe inspired by elote street corn. This recipe is the perfect side dish for barbecues. As an added bonus, since you’re cutting the corn off the cob, you don’t get strings between your teeth. To win. To win.

egg cooking

Another great egg recipe this time with boiled eggs. You can decide how hard or soft cooked you make them based on your own individual preferences. What sets this dish apart from the average plain boiled egg is the sauce. It’s a twist on the traditional concept of a seafood concoction. The sauce uses cajun seasoning to get its flavor.

cloud bread

Cloud Bread is a dreamy, beautiful cake-like bread that tastes like a marshmallow with eggs. There are only three ingredients: egg whites, sugar and cornstarch. The key to this recipe is to whip the egg whites into submission. The easiest way to achieve this is with an electric mixer, although it is possible with just a whisk and an incredible amount of willpower. You can adjust the color and flavor by adding to this recipe as well.

Dalgona or whipped cream coffee

If you want to give your morning joe a makeover or even make a coffee themed dessert, dalgona coffee, also known as whipped coffee, is for you. This easy-to-make recipe has you whisk together equal parts instant coffee, sugar, and hot water to achieve deliciousness. You can modify the recipe with decaf or decaffeinated coffee to your liking, depending on your preferences. You can make this recipe keto by using granulated erythritol or monk fruit sweetener instead of sugar.

Twisted Bacon

Bacon is delicious, but usually it’s cooked in a pan of sizzling fat that you have to turn over continuously. It is both messy and time consuming. This method of cooking bacon is much easier and less messy. You simply turn your bacon and put it in the oven to bake. This leaves you free to make other delicious brunch items and save precious cleanup time. Why didn’t we think of this before?

If regular mimosas are boring to you or you just want to change things up with the seasons, try apple cider mimosas. These are a perfect fall idea. They would also make a great addition to a Friendsgiving or Thanksgiving gathering.
