Another TikTok recipe has stolen my heart, and this time it’s in the form of crispy, salty potato disks. Potatoes are a versatile ingredient that can take many forms, ranging from whipped into a creamy mash to being crinkled and fried. And while all potato iterations are delicious in their own right, few are as simple to make, satisfying, and flavor-packed as the method @meatlikemike shared a TikTok that garnered over 34 million views.

As with all of TikTok’s viral recipes, there have been a number of variations born from the original, many of which provide unique techniques and flavor combinations to ensure an extra-crispy or well-seasoned smashed potato. TikTok user @mxriym, for example, crafted their own recipe in which the boiled potatoes are dunked directly into a cup of well-seasoned oil and then re-dipped

Smashed Brussels Sprouts TikTok Recipe With Photos

Ask any of my friends or family, and they’ll tell you I’m not a Brussels sprouts person. However, I promised myself this would be the year I start to widen my palate, and so far, I’m quite proud. (I cook with onions now — it’s *so* exciting!) And I figured, if I’m going to give Brussels sprouts another go, I may as well turn to TikTok, because if the app has taught us anything, it’s that it’s the holy grail of underrated, lip-smacking, easy recipes.

As predicted, TikToker user @courtneyannep‘s smashed Brussels sprouts recipe didn’t steer me wrong. Not only is it supereasy to follow, but the recipe plays on a bunch of fun, contrasting flavors. The vibrancy of the onion powder and Italian seasoning is subdued from the warmth and poignant taste of the brown sugar and fresh Parmesan. It’s like a party in your mouth! And who

Air Fryer Pop Tarts Recipe with Photos

I never would have thought that anything could trump my childhood breakfast of choice, but with just a few ingredients and an air fryer, you can make homemade pop tarts that are out of this world. These homemade pop tarts are absolutely adorable, and come together with just refrigerated pie crust, strawberry jam, and a simple glaze. Everyone I shared them with told me that they tasted better than the original, and I couldn’t believe how easy they were to make.

You do need a little patience for these, depending on the size of your air fryer and how many you can cook at a time. I’m lucky to have a Ninja two-basket air fryer, so the cooking went pretty quickly for me, but prepping the pie crust and crimping the edges of each pastry does take a bit of time. I promise it’s worth it, though.
