The humble potato is a very popular food, and its popularity comes in part from its versatility.

In the words of Samwise Gamgee from LOTR, “you can boil ’em, mash ’em, stick ’em in a stew.” And of course, you can turn them into fries, and fries are amazing.

Because of their versatility, potatoes are often the subject of many recipe videos since they’re simple and easy to work with, and the results are always more than satisfactory.

If you go on TikTok, there will always be plenty of recipe videos and different cooking hacks to keep you entertained. But there is one TikToker who is gaining plenty of attention for her potato recipes – one in particular.

Poppy O’Toole, also known as PoppyCooks on TikTok, has gained a lot of notoriety due to her 15-hour potato recipe – which has now gone viral. Essentially, it’s layered potatoes, but Poppy puts her own twist on it, and we think it’s pretty awesome!

Originally, Poppy had come up with a layered potatoes recipe in which she coated the potato slices in duck fat. However, for her latest recipe she uses beef drippings instead.
