The baked feta pasta recipe broke the internet back in 2019, with the #bakedfetapasta hashtag collectively amassing 52 million views and counting on TikTok.

This recipe can change any skepticism you have about viral recipes - it's low-effort, budget-friendly, and super delicious. Feta, tomatoes, olive oil, salt, and pepper all in one dish - what not to love?

Fun Fact: when the recipe went viral in Finland, stores ran out of Feta.

2. Whipped Coffee (aka Dalgona Coffee)

Spoon Fork and Food

The whipped coffee trend took over the world after @imhannahcho made it for her mom and posted the making process on her channel.

She combined equal parts of instant coffee, sugar, and hot water and whipped until the mixture turned into an airy cloud-like caramel-colored substance. Then she filled a glass with some ice, poured in milk, and topped it with the beautiful whipped mixture. It looked glorious!

Whipped coffee took off not only in the US but also became a sensation on social media in South Korea. Back in 2020, famous South Korean actor Jung Il-woo ordered the whipped coffee drink at a cafe in Macao and said it reminded him of the taste of dalgona candy.

Should You Try It YES (If you enjoy coffee drinks)

3. Gigi Hadid Pasta


Gigi Hadid Pasta


When Gigi Hadid posted her version of the delicious penne alla vodka on her Insta Story in early 2020 it instantly went viral.

It has got love from her fans and everyday home cooks because it only takes 20 minutes to make and requires simple ingredients most of us probably have at home. It is also a delicious and fancy-looking pasta dish you can make on a budget.

4. Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson's Famous Coconut Banana Pancakes


The Rock Pancakes


Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is a man of many talents. He's an actor, producer, and professional wrestler, but what you may not know is that he's an incredible cook as well!

In March of 2021, he reposted a video of himself and Che Puttie showcasing the recipe for his delicious and nutritious pancakes with a #DJsINFAMOUSCoconutBananaPancakes hashtag.

His famous coconut banana pancakes are packed with protein and good fats! And what's more, they are absolutely delicious - a great way to start your day right!

5. Pink Sauce


Homemade Pink Sauce


Pink Sauce quickly gained viral popularity on TikTok after its creator, Chef Pii, posted videos of her eating the sauce.

The bright pink hue captivated people's attention. Still, confusion also grew as more details about this new food product were scarce- leaving customers skeptical and unable to buy without knowing exactly how it tastes or if their concerns have been addressed by purchasing one themselves!

The secret list of ingredients and some drama with the first batch of sauce being sent in improper packaging caused a lot of controversy around this viral food item.

It's still unclear if the sauce will get FDA approved and go into mass production. But if you must have this Insta-worthy hot pink condiment, just make it yourself and save yourself some money and time.

Our Ranking 5/10
Should You Try It MAYBE

You should try this viral recipe if you are absolutely obsessed with the color pink and like ranch. Otherwise, this food trend is not really worth your time.

6. Bella Hadid TikTok Pasta

The Hadid sisters are not only famous models but also accomplished TikTok recipe trend setters.

In June 2022, Bella posted a quick recipe video making spicy pasta with prosciutto, grilled veggies, and pesto toast with the latest Beyonce single playing in the background.

The pasta looked absolutely incredible in the video, and millions of fans praised the simple recipe she shared.

In the spirit of experimentation and staying on top of viral recipe trends, we have recreated Bella's recipe based on the video, and it sure is worth a try.

The garlicky spaghetti with flavorful prosciutto, parmesan, and toasted pine nuts tastes as good as it looks and is super easy to make.

Should You Try It YES

Keep in mind that the recipe is spicy with a whole tablespoon of red chili flakes. So make it if you enjoy spicy food, or take the chili flakes out.

7. TikTok Pesto Eggs

Cooking eggs in pesto sauce is nothing new, but the viral TikTok recipe made this food the must-have breakfast of 2021.

The recipe itself couldn't be more straightforward - instead of frying eggs using some bland oil, place a generous tablespoon of freshly made pesto onto the skillet and crack an egg in the middle of it.

There is no way this recipe wouldn't work. Pesto is just a combination of fragrant herbs, nuts, cheese, and oil, so you are basically cooking eggs in an extra flavorful sauce.

8. Nature's Cereal


Nature's Cereal

Honestly, it's hard to call this dish cereal or even a recipe. Nature's cereal went viral when Lizzo made a batch of this healthy breakfast shared by Sherwayne Mears of @natures_food.

From then on, nature's cereal jumped to the top of trendy foods, with many more celebrities sharing their versions of the simple recipe.

It's nothing but a mix of fresh berries, coconut water, and some ice cubes in a bowl, and it tastes exactly how it looks. To be fair, it is delicious if you don't expect it to taste like cereal. It's a great way to enjoy your favorite berries by a spoonful and have a refreshing breakfast on a hot summer day.

Our Ranking 8/10
Should You Try It MAYBE

If you enjoy berries and want to consume them in a new fun way, you should give it a go. If you expect this to taste like Captain Crunch, don't try it.

9. Zucchini Brownies


Healthy Zucchini Brownies


The "healthier" recipe for brownies has been circulating on every social media channel for a while now. And while adding raw zucchini to your brownies doesn't make it lower in calories, it is a great way to sneak in some vegetables into a dessert (of all things).

The main benefit of adding zucchini into a brownie mix is the fudgy texture it provides. You will end up with the fudgiest, moist, perfect brownies and will not taste the zucchini.

10. Cheesy Ramen


One-Pot Cheesy Ramen

Last year TikTok went nuts over a simple recipe made with packaged noodles.

Ramen has always had our back in times of need. The comfort they bring is undeniable, so much that even when we're not too broke and in need of some cheap food to eat - an easy meal made with instant noodles will do just fine!

So it's no surprise that a simple "cheesy" modification blew up on Tiktok overnight, generating more than 13 million views. Since the original recipe featured American cheese, butter, milk, and Sriracha, everyone and Kylie Jenner have shared their signature recipe to turn a packet of ramen into a delicious meal.
