Oreo Sushi and Ramen Lasagna – Jonas Cramby makes 6 of TikTok’s most popular recipes

Café’s Jonas Crumby plays a chef on TikTok. You can’t guess what happened next.

How are you children? This month, I left the culinary realm of adult regulars from natural wine, naming carrot growers and important sustainability debates to explore the app that has perhaps the biggest impact on youth culture today: TikTok. In addition to giving kids and teens TikTok new, high-tech ways to bully each other and/or sit in a dark room and not be out in the sun, the app has, for the first time in world history, made them become interested in it. Food and cooking tricks. Sure, there have always been a few old water-comb newbies interested in “hitting a pea”, but what TikTok has succeeded in making is making cooking as cool as crazy frog and skateboards. When I was growing up, helping out with dinner at home was a punishment for me, and knowing about the house was often a way to avoid the “real lessons”. Today the kids come home and want to cook “cloud bread” with purple swirls and edible glitter because they saw a 12-year-old millionaire from Australia do it on TikTok.

After I downloaded the app and was first shocked that I didn’t find any of my interests there – hardly any new alternative country ever, and both Japanese traditional costumes and shoemakers publishing AMSR’s reenactments of horse buds sparkle almost entirely with absence – so I checked thousands of recipes TikTok. Soon I could see that most people have three things in common:

1. It must contain three components with a maximum of four.

2. It should be simple enough for a child to cook.

3. It should be a way for these kids to sneak junk food and sweets into the diet.

Of course, it is not cabbage dolma or dill meat that is most common in TikTok, but almost exclusively stupid things such as “ice cream bread” (bread baked on melted ice cream), “pancakes” (lots of small pancakes with milk) or “toast” Mermaid” (toast with shimmery, vegan cream cheese tinted with powdered algae).

But to prove that I don’t judge anything in advance and that I’m with kids, I decided to try six of the most popular TikTok recipes. To help me evaluate, I took four crazy TikTok kids and one well-balanced adult. Here is the result:

Tortilla Wrap

The first really big viral TikTok recipe was this modern classic: tortilla rolls. Not so much a recipe as a way to fold a tortilla before cooking which has obviously been so great for people about three apples tall that the combined views are now over 3.7 billion! Totally sick, there is hardly a monkey that smells of farts.

Prescription: Place the tortilla on a cutting board. Take a knife and cut it from the middle of the tortilla toward the edge. Divide the tortilla into four imaginary squares and place an optional layer on each square. If you use cheese, put it in the two boxes closest to you for technical reasons. Fold the bottom left up, then right and finally down. Fry over medium heat, preferably with weight, until crispy and tasty.

Average rating for children: 4 out of 5

“It was fast and it was simple but good. I can do it myself! “

Average adult rating: 2.5 out of 5

“He’s basically against semi-finished tortillas, but I have to say the folding method is actually pretty clever. Food in stock is always good. If he blows the skull off me? Not at all.”

Snickles

Although Swedish kids usually put pickled cucumbers in the same cardboard dining room as mustard and pickled onions, for some reason many TikTok users have a thing for pickles. You can find loads of exotic recipes like pickle tacos, pickle ranch, or colecals at Kool Aid Teams. However, this recipe by user @williamcraft09 falls under the “individual flavor combinations” category which seems to be very popular on TikTok. For example, they try to spread mustard on a watermelon and then explain to the world that this is the best combination of foods since fresh bread and cold milk. And it rarely is. But we are testing!

Prescription: We cut in the middle pickled cucumber, pickled. Put a lengthwise split Snickers between the cucumber halves and voilà: Snickles!

“It doesn’t work. It’s like foaming Santa with an onion.”

Average adult rating: 2 out of 5

“Typical food stand / stoner. It’s not completely disgusting. It might even contain something… but no, maybe just because I’m hungry for Snickers. Perhaps it would be tastier without the option. or…? “

Oreo Sushi

This popular food hack signed by user TikToksiennasweets_ may just be the ultimate TikTok recipe: It contains only two ingredients, is based on a popular fast food product and the only adults who can imagine eating it are clinically depressed people.

Prescription: Scrape the cookie filling into the Oreos tin and place in a bowl. Crush the biscuits and pour into another bowl. Stir the milk with the ground biscuits by a tablespoon by tablespoon until it becomes a paste (or at least something like that). Put the dough on a piece of plastic wrap, cover with another piece of plastic wrap and wrap. Mix the white filling with a little milk, spread it over the dough mixture and roll it like a maki roll. Cut them up and eat them by dipping them in condensed milk or chocolate sauce.

“The donuts are full, but I can eat as much as I like of this. Sticky and sugary. Likes.”

Average adult rating: 1 out of 5

Completely useless recipe. Just a messy way to spoil a bundle of cookies. The equivalent of using floss in cooking.”

Spicy chito sauce

The American Cheesecake Snack Set Famous for 1. That Chito-like Mimi Gorilla Harambe once sold for nearly $100,000 on eBay and 2. Because Richard Montañez claims to have invented the snack in his garage while working as a caregiver at Frito-Lay He has written two books about his success story and has an autobiographical film directed by Eva Longoria (while Frito-Lay claims they have no idea who this man is). Now the snack combo has gone viral when it became the main ingredient in TikTokrxthism user’s popular salad recipe. We are testing.

Prescription: Mix diced cucumber and avocado with Flamin’ Hot Cheetos – or similar snacks from Sweden’s Flamin’ Hot Cheez Cruncherz – and fresh chopped cilantro. Sprinkle with pressed lemon and hot sauce.

Average rating for children: 2 out of 5

“It would have been nice if there were no vegetables.”

Average adult rating: 3 out of 5

“Honestly, that’s pretty good. It sounds weirder than it is. It’s really like dipping in guaca chips or eating nachos — quite the opposite.”

ramen lasagna

Something TikTok user @ramenkingivan is taking the regular and popular dishes – and replacing one of the ingredients with instant frame noodles. It may sound silly, but I also have a weak spot in the fast frame so I can respect his hustle. On his incredibly popular channel (did you say that?) he cooks everything from mashed eggs with ramen noodles (?) via ramen chips (??) to a ramen-based version of the baked Finnish feta cheese pasta that took the TikTok world by storm in Last year it caused a worldwide shortage of feta cheese – at the same time it was a rather boring recipe of the kind you usually find at Hemmets Journal or Allers.

Prescription: Cover ready-made pasta sauce with cheese and instant noodles. Drink it for 20 minutes.

Average rating for children: 2.5 out of 5

“Good, but why don’t you just get plain lasagna?”

Average adult rating: 2 out of 5

“It would be good, mostly because I couldn’t keep up and cook another real soup. I just couldn’t use ready-made noodle sauce, that’s the limit. Ramen noodles can cook quickly and give off a light, fast-food feel that’s not exactly annoying — but also lots of unnecessary extras, so you won’t I’m doing this again.”

Creamy lemonade

“I need this in an IV!” (I need this in a drip bottle) One of the comments on the original post was from user TikTokmtlajeunesse, and while the lemon and spray cream into the bloodstream would of course cause a severe system breakdown and almost certain death, I can understand the commenter. This recipe, based on the delicious South American Brazilian lime juice, has something, unlike a lot of the other nonsense on TikTok.

Prescription: Mix 7 deciliters of ice with 5 deciliters whipped cream, 1 deciliter squeezed lemon and 1 deciliter of sweetened condensed milk. Apply more spray cream to the face. Decorate with lemon.

Average rating for children: 4.5 out of 4

It tastes like a lemon, but it’s more creamy. It is very easy to do and I am eager to do more experiments. The odd cream of Fanta would probably be fine, for example. Or a creamy Coca-Cola! “

Average adult rating: 3 out of 5

“Statoil’s slash meets Babette’s lemonade. There’s probably nothing I’d like to invite guests to, but actually a real recipe I can easily imagine letting the kids do it themselves this summer. Although I’ll replace the spray cream with a regular beater. Who even eats squirt cream?” “
