While it may seem like a new TikTok craze recipe pops up every day, there’s no question that some of these viral creations are more delicious (and often more popular as a result) than others. With a variety of beloved TikTok dishes to choose from, the folks over at Nutrimuscle went ahead and ranked the most popular TikTok recipes of 2022 so far. In this case, popularity is defined by the number of views a given recipe has received on the video-sharing platform.

It’s no wonder hits like overnight oats, avocado toast, and pasta chips made the cut, with the latter having garnered more than 1.1 billion views. As the team at Nutrimuscle pointed out, many of the recipes that made it to the top 10 are also relatively healthy. “The rise of food trends on social media like ‘FoodTok’ has encouraged younger generations to get into the kitchen and learn how to cook from scratch, which is much healthier than relying on ready meals and fast food,” Alex Parren, a registered nutritionist, explained. “It’s an easy and convenient way to find new recipes, and for many young people, the visual aid of seeing how a dish is made and what it should look like increases their chances of long-term success.”

As Parren pointed out, TikTok’s most popular recipes are easy to recreate at home and are often made with common, inexpensive ingredients that consumers may already have. “The most viral food trends are also those that use simple and accessible ingredients, which can be vital in the cost of living crisis we are currently experiencing,” she added.

feta paste

Baked Feta Pasta peaked on TikTok in 2021, but according to the data, it was also one of the most popular recipes of 2022, with an estimated 1.1 billion views. Since all you need to make this viral recipe are tomatoes, feta cheese, pasta, and standard seasonings like olive oil, garlic, and basil, it’s no surprise that it’s still popular to this day. With the possible exception of feta, many home cooks have the rest of the ingredients on hand at a moment’s notice, and the dish is hearty, yet inexpensive to prepare.


In a tie for first place, these trendy chips also garnered roughly 1.1 billion views on TikTok. Just like Baked Feta Pasta, this recipe is also pretty simple to make. In this case, all you need to do is toss some cooked pasta into the fryer with a little olive oil, Parmesan cheese, and spices to get the job done. Serve it with a dipping sauce, like a homemade pesto or marinara, to add even more flavor.

avocado toast

In third place, with an estimated 839 million views on TikTok, is avocado toast. While the easy-to-make dish has been a brunch favorite for years, TikTokers have demonstrated a number of popular avocado toast ideas and improvements that have breathed new life into the dish. Some of these ideas include adding a grated egg to the mix or topping avocado toast with a drizzle of hot honey. Given the virtually limitless varieties of avocado toast, it’s safe to say that it’s not going to lose popularity any time soon.

cup cake

Is there anything more satisfying than a cake you can make in a mug? Not really, which is probably why TikToks showcasing this easy dessert that can satisfy any sweet tooth garnered nearly 711 million views on the social platform. Pro Tip: If you’re feeding a larger crowd, you can also make a cake in your slow cooker!

overnight oats

This easy and viral breakfast recipe has managed to rack up nearly 706 million views on TikTok so far this year. Like avocado toast, this dish is easy to make (you really only need two ingredients!) and has hundreds of delicious variations. As with several other viral recipes on this list, overnight oats are also very healthy. Use this overnight oats recipe as a base and up the nutrient content by adding fresh fruit, fiber-packed nuts and seeds, good-for-you spices and more.

pesto eggs

American people love their eggs, so when this recipe came along, it’s no wonder it was an instant hit. To that end, pesto egg videos have garnered more than 265 million views on TikTok. To make this viral breakfast, all you need to do is cook the eggs (pretty much any soft style works) in pesto instead of using butter or cooking oil. The oil from the pesto is enough to lubricate the pan, and the flavors of the earthy green sauce pair perfectly with the eggs.

salmon bowl

If you’re one of the more than 184 million people who watched a salmon bowl video on TikTok, you probably have influencer Emily Mariko to thank. The California-based TikTok user shared her viral Salmon Bowl recipe in September 2021 using a piece of leftover salmon that she shredded with a fork, leftover white rice, a drizzle of soy sauce, sriracha and Kewpie mayonnaise, slices of avocado, bits of seaweed, and a small plate of kimchi on the side. Since then, dozens of different variations of that recipe have made their way into the TikTok universe. If you have a craving for salmon, give this crumbled salmon noodle recipe a twist. It’s not as easy to make as a bowl of salmon, but it’s definitely delicious!

boil the egg

While this viral recipe may not sound very appetizing, it has captured the attention of over 129 million TikTok viewers so far this year, in part because it’s so easy to make. Simply put, an egg boil involves hard-boiled eggs in a spicy, broth-like sauce of your choice. The sauce usually contains a lot of butter and a variety of spices, but many users have simply raided their spice cabinets instead of going to the supermarket. To enhance this recipe, some TikTokers have added noodles, potatoes, and/or meat to the mix.

pizza toast

Though not as popular as avocado toast, Pizza Toast has garnered over 125 million views on TikTok so far in 2022 after it went viral thanks to one of model Hailey Bieber’s videos. As you may have guessed, this easy recipe involves topping a piece of bread with tomato slices, tomato sauce, cheese, and other delicious pizza toppings, then tossing it all into the air fryer or oven. What emerges is a simple yet delicious version of homemade pizza that’s ready in minutes.

Tik Tok Ramen

Ramen can often be a laborious dish to prepare, but the folks over at TikTok managed to simplify this classic Japanese dish by using packaged ramen noodles and topping them with ingredients like soy sauce, gochujang, and ginger. From there, you can add an egg, vegetables, or whatever else you have on hand. As many TikTokers now know, cheesy ramen is also a treat. Given the rise in popularity of ramen, it’s no surprise that #TikTokRamen has over 91 million views this year alone.
