TikTok has earned its spot as the platform du jour for many reasons. While I enjoy watching product reviews, learning about the newest fashion trends, and even exploring new scientific discoveries via the dedicated STEM page—I dedicate the majority of my scrolling time to TikTok cooking videos. After countless hours of tapping through videos to find the perfect dinner or quick lunch ideas—I would say I have a pretty good grasp on some of the best TikTok recipes that exist on the internet.

Finding recipe inspo on TikTok has become one of my go-to ways to switch up my cooking habits. I live for beautifully shot videos of aesthetically pleasing food, and thanks to the creativity of these social media chefs, almost anyone can recreate these viral dishes. Many recipes can be made in an air-fryer, with minimal ingredients, or even in one jar! (Yes, really.)

TikTok Chefs to Look Out For

While there are thousands of chefs whose TikTok recipes have made them famous, there are several who have expanded their culinary skills beyond social media.

Yumna Jawad (@feelgoodfoodie) coined the famous Feta Pasta recipe back in 2021 and has since gained 1.9 million followers on the platform, continuing to develop simple, original recipes.

Jeremey Sheck (@sheckeats) is another up-and-coming chef to look out for, who went viral for his re-creation of Gigi Hadid’s spicy rigatoni with vodka sauce. The recent Cornell University grad has over 2.3 million TikTok followers and has been featured in several publications, including the Washington Post and People.

Hajar Larbah (@moribryan) draws much of her culinary inspiration from her Moroccan and Libyan nationalities. Larbah studied nutrition at UC Berkeley and recently released an Ecookbook for her 4.6 million followers to enjoy.

Stuffed Bagel Bites

Why We Love It: Dunkin’ Donuts isn’t just famous across the nation for its coffee (or Ben Affleck’s loyalty)—these stuffed bagel bites took the internet by storm. They’re the perfect grab-and-go breakfast that can be prepped days in advance for a delicious snack fit for any busy schedule.

Baked Oats

Yogurt Toast

Why We Love It: We’re here for all the hype around yogurt toast. It’s perfectly balanced with tart and sweet elements that come together for a crunchy, creamy bite. (It’s like French toast, only better.) The yogurt can be enjoyed on its own or sweetened with ingredients like honey and cinnamon.

Hero Ingredient: Warm spices like cinnamon and brown sugar can easily elevate the flavor of your Greek yogurt.

Pesto Eggs

Why We Love It: Eggs are arguably one of the best protein-packed breakfast foods. But they can become bland if not cooked and seasoned with care. Pesto is a tasty (and simple!) way to infuse your eggs with flavor by simply whisking them into a basil-based sauce. Make your own pesto or pick it up from the grocery store and enjoy!

Hero Ingredient: An elite sauce like pesto is only made all the better with the addition of sun-dried tomatoes. Don’t you agree?

Hailey Bieber Smoothie

Why We Love It: When it comes to the best TikTok recipes, the one that’s taken the wellness world—and the entire Camille Styles team—by storm is Hailey Bieber’s Erehwon Strawberry Glaze smoothie. It’s made with skin-boosting nutrients like NeoCell hyaluronic acid, along with organic strawberries and Erehwon sea moss. We’re endlessly grateful for the TikTok community for re-creating the smoothie. (And spoiler alert: it doesn’t cost $17.)

Hero Ingredient: Out of all of the ingredients in this smoothie (and there are quite a few), sea moss is the most unique.

Salads and Sides

Jennifer Aniston Cobb Salad

Why We Love It: Jennifer Aniston revealed that she ate this cobb salad on the set of Friends for ten years straight—and we can totally understand why. It’s both creamy and crunchy with a savory dressing made from Greek yogurt, lemon juice, and Dijon mustard. If that doesn’t scream delicious (and filling, and energizing), I’m not sure what does.

Hero Ingredient: Chickpeas are one of the easiest ways to fill your plant-based lunch with a healthy dose of protein. We’re obsessed.

Sushi Bake

Why We Love It: Contrary to popular belief, it’s possible to enjoy a sushi night without paying $20 per roll. This sushi bake takes under 30 minutes and contains all of the restaurant-quality sushi staple ingredients. While it calls for salmon, you could easily sub for crab or ahi tuna.

Hero Ingredient: A homemade spicy mayo is essential—not only for this sushi bake, but really any recipe that could use a little creaminess and heat.

? Let Me Blow Ya Mind – Eve

Why We Love It: This dip—filled with protein-packed beans, crunchy bell peppers, and creamy avocado—is tossed in a bit of taco seasoning for bold flavor.

Pastas and Mains

Gigi Hadid’s Spicy Vodka Pasta

Why We Love It: Gigi Hadid’s spicy vodka pasta recipe truly broke the internet in 2020. As soon as it was posted, it was simultaneously re-created by hundreds of aspiring chefs across the globe.

Feta Pasta

Why We Love It: Yamna Jawad’s feta pasta is undeniably one of the best TikTok recipes due to both its ease and addictive quality. (I could eat bowl after bowl of the stuff.) Cooked pasta, along with a block of feta, a drizzle of olive oil, and cherry tomatoes are tossed together to create a delicious and simple dish. It’s a one-pot meal, reimagined.

Hero Ingredient: Usually, I don’t envision feta in a cheesy pasta recipe—but like many, this dish pleasantly surprised me.

Tortellini Pasta Salad

Why We Love It: I’ve always been a big fan of Caesar salad, but recently I’ve found that they’re just not filling enough when it comes to being a strong side salad. If you also love the taste of a good Caesar dressing, throwing in some carbs and protein to make a hearty pasta salad is a great go-to summer dish.

Hero Ingredient: A homemade or good-quality store-bought Caesar dressing is key. In fact, I’d go so far as to say that it makes this pasta salad.

Garlic Bread Grilled Cheese

Why We Love It: The new and improved partner for your homemade tomato soup recipe is here! Garlic bread grilled cheese takes this basic sandwich to the next level. Simply spread a mixture of garlic, butter, and parsley onto your bread and cook in a pan or on a panini press.

Hero Ingredient: Garlic can—and should—be the hero of almost every meal.

Birria Tacos

Why We Love It: With its origins in Puerto Vallarta, Birria has become a popular dish enjoyed in both Texas and throughout the South. This delicious Mexican dish is made with tender, slow-cooked meat, usually beef or goat, marinated in a rich and flavorful sauce made from a blend of dried chilies, spices, and herbs.

Hero Ingredient: The best cut of meat for the most tender Birria is a chuck roast. If you don’t have it, save your Birria for another night when you do. That’s right—it’s essential.

Bang Bang Shrimp

Why We Love It: Bang bang shrimp has become a popular appetizer thanks to its tangy and spicy sauce. The shrimp are typically coated and fried in a light batter and tossed in a creamy and zesty sauce made with mayonnaise, sweet chili sauce, and sriracha.

Hero Ingredient: Sweet chili sauce is the perfect balance between sweet and spicy.


Marry Me Chicken is one of the best ways to cook chicken breasts! Tender and juicy chicken breasts cooked in a creamy sun-dried tomato sauce – the perfect combination for an easy weeknight dinner. #recipes #marrymechicken #cooking #food #dinner #lowcarb #tuscanchicken #healthydinner #dinnerideas #chickenbreast

? Thing of Beauty – Danger Twins

Marry Me Chicken

Why We Love It: Marry Me Chicken is a flavorful and creamy dish that became one of the best TikTok recipes because of its rich taste and romantic name. Chicken gets cooked in a creamy tomato sauce infused with garlic, herbs, and a bit of balsamic vinegar. The sauce is thick and luscious, making it a perfect accompaniment to pasta or mashed potatoes for a satisfying, indulgent meal.

Hero Ingredient: I typically include sun-dried tomatoes in my sauce for an added sweet flavor. If you’re wondering, yes—I can’t get enough of them. And this dish is made all the better with the addition.

Burrito Bowls

Why We Love It: Burrito bowls are a popular and delicious dish that gained popularity in the States largely in part to the ubiquity of everyone’s favorite fast-casual spot, Chipotle. The combination of starches, protein, and veggies in a burrito bowl creates a satisfying and customizable meal option for those seeking a hearty and flavorful experience.

Hero Ingredient: A squeeze of lime in your bowl is always a good idea.

Garlic Butter Steak Bites

Why We Love It: Not feeling the frill? Steak bites are a perfect option. The garlic-infused butter enhances the natural flavors of the steak, creating a rich bite that’s best paired with lighter vegetables to balance out the indulgence.

Hero Ingredient: Good quality salted butter makes all the difference.


S’mores Cookies

Why We Love It: If there’s one thing TikTok is good at (and there are many), it’s motivating me to get in the kitchen and bake. With hundreds of unique desserts, it’s hard to narrow down the best recipes. But these s’mores cookies earn their place for their simplistic yet distinct taste and texture. All of the classic’s three essentials—graham crackers, marshmallows, and chocolate—are included.

Hero Ingredient: These aren’t your run-of-the-mill, made-over-the-fire s’mores. Certainly not with a healthy ball of cookie placed on top before baking. It makes the hybrid cookie the masterpiece it is.

Strawberry Yogurt Chocolate Bites

Why We Love It: When I’m feeling dessert but want something lighter, these strawberry yogurt chocolate bites are my go-to. Simply dice strawberries, fold into Greek yogurt, and freeze before dipping them in melted chocolate.

Hero Ingredient: Be sure to choose chocolate morsels for the easiest melting process.

Hero Ingredient: It’s hard to choose, but cheesecake is what makes these brownies so unbelievably rich.

French Toast Bites

Why We Love It: The best TikTok recipes are the ones that take the dishes we know and love and add a fresh twist. These French toast bites use the same recipe we all grew up with, but their small shape makes them perfect for a breakfast platter or a quick morning bite.

Hero Ingredient: I love to serve my French toast with fresh fruit like strawberries or blackberries. It’s all about balance!
