TikTok hacks you NEED to try!

TikTok first started to be recognized in early 2019 as just another social media app, but in the past 2 years, it’s grown to be one of the most popular social media platforms to date. 

The app is used to make short 15-60 second videos, and to be shared on the “For You Page.” Commonly seen are dance, comedic, and educational videos but of course there’s people all around the world that share daily recipes and food hacks, too. 

Pasta is something that is always trending online, because there is a huge fan base surrounding it.

More specifically, the tomato feta pasta that broke the internet. The recipe is very simple and really good, I tried it myself. 

Essentially it is just a block of feta cheese, surrounded by tomatoes, drizzled with olive oil, and seasoned with salt,  pepper, oregano, etc. Many people have added their own twists like adding chili peppers, blending the sauce once it is out of the oven, replacing feta with mozzarella and so much more.

The reason for it’s virality is quite simple, it looks good, it is easy to make, and the reviews are all positive. The dish became so popular that feta cheese blocks were sold out in grocery stores all over the world.

Cooking is all nice and good, but sometimes it can be a little stressful. There are so many different ingredients and tools to use in order to create a meal.

Picture this, the recipe calls for 3 egg whites. All of the sudden you realize you do not know how to properly separate the yolk from the white. Don’t fear, thanks to TikTok that process has become much easier.

The idea is that you can use a water bottle to remove an egg yolk from a mixture. The gist is very simple, you literally just squeeze the bottle upside down first, and then place it over the yolk, on top, but not too aggressively so it will not break. Then, you loosen your grip on the bottle and the yolk comes right out.

The simplicity is unmatched, and very effective.

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. There are various foods that can be made, one example is the trending food hack, an egg sandwich.

The ingredients are not very complicated . All you need is eggs, bread, and any other condiments you want added.

The instructions are:  Whisk two eggs in a bowl, then pour into a greased skillet over medium heat. Dip two slices of bread in the egg mixture, then flip over and place in the skillet. Once the eggs are cooked, flip both the slices of bread over at the same time. Fold any overlapping edges of egg onto the bread, then flip one slice of bread onto the other.

It takes about fifteen minutes to make this dish, so It is not time consuming and it tastes delicious. 

The mom who made this hack became viral on TikTok. People were saying how useful and efficient it was. It reached more than 760,000 individuals. She was praised for giving the people on TikTok a good alternative breakfast.

The outcome of this experimental food hack was successful and many people use it in their everyday lives.

As of recently the trend going around is the “TikTok wrap hack,” which is probably one of the smartest ways to make wrap. 

Basically, you take a tortilla and a knife and cut it from the middle down to the edge of the wrap. Then imagine there are four quadrants in the wrap and take whatever fillings your heart desires and fill them within those quadrants.

 You then fold the wrap starting from the bottom left corner, folding it up over the top, then folding it over to the top right, and finally folding it down to the bottom right. You can leave it as it is, or to spice things up and put it into a panini press or grill it on a pan. 

This hack allows you to get creative with your food and it works for both breakfast and lunch foods, as well. 

TikTok has a connotation of being a waste of time, and frankly not something that would help the average person. In all actuality, the app does have a lot of helpful ideas and creators who help to innovate the daily life.

A lot of people, myself included, have learned so many things from TikTok, and every day creators are putting out new ideas, tips, and tricks that were never seen before.

Hopefully you have found some helpful hacks and maybe even a recipe you’d like to try.
