TikTok has exploded in popularity over the last year or so. If you’re unfamiliar, TikTok is a social media app that consists of short video segments. A lot of TikTok users have profiles dedicated to cooking and cleaning hacks, showing the rest of us some pretty amazing ways to get stuff done! Some of these hacks are pure genius while others have me smacking my head for not thinking of them sooner. Let’s jump right into some of the most viral TikTok cooking hacks!
Cheater Eggs Over Easy
I love eggs when they are prepared well. From fluffy scrambled eggs to fried eggs, I love all forms! Eggs over easy, however, tend to be difficult to master. They either turn out too runny or burnt on the bottom. However with this little hack, you can have eggs over easy that are perfectly cooked without any burnt bits.
Simply crack your egg into a metal ladle (metal is important since it conducts heat, versus plastic, which doesn’t). Dip the ladle in boiling water, careful not to get the water inside where the egg is. Let it sit for a few moments while the egg cooks. That’s it! Eggs over easy made easy.
The Best Way To Eat A Cupcake
Here is one that I absolutely love, even though it’s incredibly simple. This is one of the hacks I can’t believe I didn’t think of sooner. Cupcakes are wonderful little treats, but sometimes it’s hard to get a good bite with both frosting and cake. Not any more! Just break your cupcake in two and place the bottom half of the cake on top of the frosting for a little cupcake sandwich!
What a fun and easy way to make a super simple quesadilla in the toaster! These would make perfect little snacks to dip into salsa or guacamole. For this hack, just sprinkle some cheese on a small tortilla, fold it in half, then fold the corners in, as pictured above. Then, pop it in the toaster and cook until your desired crispiness. The tortilla forms a little pocket so the cheese can’t get out, so you don’t have to worry about burnt cheese in your toaster.
Best Breakfast Sandwich
This might be my favorite one on the list. I had no idea where this was going at first, but I’m glad I stuck it out to the end of the video! Start by frying up some bacon or ham if you prefer, and set aside. Then, whip up eggs, salt, pepper, milk, and some chives or parsley if you want. Mix it all together and pour into the skillet. Next, place two pieces of bread on top and cook until eggs are done. Flip the bread and egg mixture over and put cheese, bacon, and whatever other toppings you want. Let the bread toast for a bit on the skillet, then fold your breakfast sandwich in half and enjoy!
Best Way To Cut A Watermelon
I love tips and tricks like this one! This is a great way to cut the rind off of a watermelon. Start by cutting it in half and placing it face down on a cutting board. Then, slice the rounded top off. Next, angle the knife so it’s cutting into the white part of the watermelon, stripping the rind away. Repeat the process all the way around the watermelon, then cut into chunks. Place a bowl over the watermelon and flip the entire cutting board upside down. When you lift the cutting board up, you’ll have a bowl full of chopped watermelon!
