Check Out This Brilliant TikTok Recipe For Fried Spam Jack-O-Lantern

@sooziethefoodie

Made a creep out of spam today ##tiktokhalloween ##tiktokcooks ##halloweenathome

♬ Boogie Woogie Wu – Insane Clown Posse

Spam lovers are for sure going to go nuts over this TikTok recipe from @sooziethefoodie. In the clip above she brilliantly hollows out a can of Spam into a Jack-O-Lantern, then fills it with cauliflower rice.

Out of all the Halloween recipes I’ve come across recently, this has to be one of the coolest, enough for me to want to try at home myself. Between my eternal love for Spam and the cool factor of turning a whole block of it into a Jack-O-Lantern, it’s no wonder I was thoroughly impressed with the whole affair.

Now imagine the possibilities of filling it with other delicious things. Fried rice is already on deck, for sure, but maybe even filling it with eggs can turn up some cool possibilities.

Viral TikTok Shows Some Wild Recipes Using A Custom Pasta Machine

@safiyany

my sincerest apologies to pastatok 🍝 ##food ##pasta ##GoodSoup

♬ Pirates Of The Caribbean (Title Theme) – Voidoid

Safiya Nygaard shows us all what a little bit of mad cap ingenuity and being left to our own devices with a custom pasta machine can do. In a recent viral TikTok clip, Nygaard goes absolutely ham with her pasta making machine, using liquids like strawberry milk, root beer and matcha to create ungodly pasta dishes like strawberries ‘n cream and root beer float pasta.

Nygaard captioned the clip with “my sincerest apologies to pastatok” but honestly she has no reason to apologize with the way she pushed the boundaries of pasta and left millions with the thought of buying their own custom pasta machines.

This Blooming Apple Pie Is Big Brained Creativity

Kevin Durant, one of the most prolific scorers in NBA history, once famously responded to a reporter questioning how he’d hold up against pesky defender Patrick Beverley with, “I’m Kevin Durant. Y’all know who I am.”

And that same energy applies to Josh Elkin around these parts. Why is he Foodbeast fam, Foodbeast Kitchen League champion, and a regular feature on this page? He’s Josh Elkin. We know who he is.

Continuing that consistency is his latest madcap recipe for a Blooming Apple Pie. To picture it perfectly, take a Bloomin’ Onion and reconfigure that as a dessert using an apple. The recipe above let’s the delectable drama play out beautifully.

Score one more for The Josh Elkin.

TikTok Chef Cooks Gourmet Omelette Using 114 Degree Weather

@trendychef_

Cooking a omelet outside using the heat from the Sun! No Stove, No Oven! ##viral ##foodie ##hotoutside ##chef ##tiktokhack

♬ Outside (Better Days) – MO3 & OG Bobby Billions

It was recently declared by news outlets that the summer of 2021 was the hottest on record in the United States. Sounds about right to me the way @trendychef_ went and cooked himself a gourmet lobster omelette using nothing but solar power.

As his TikTok clip above shows, he threw down out in the open under 114 degree weather, using the unforgiving summer sun to whip up his breakfast. We’ve seen eggs being fried on the hoods of cars under the sun before, but a whole lobster omelette complete with the melted cheese on top certainly took things to an upper echelon.

Recipe wiz and Kitchen League champ, Josh Elkin, is no stranger to whipping up some magic in the kitchen. He’s cast otherworldly spells before like sausage-stuffed breakfast donuts and mac & cheese lava cake, so we know the resume.

In one of his latest recipes, he continues the program with two eye-opening flips on the traditional hot dog: an In-N-Out dog and a Big Mac dog. I did a double take as I was scrolling down the feed, all while my brain was trying to catch up with the unruly fusion that presented itself to me on my screen.

Just picturing two iconic burgers in glizzy form has happy tears cascading down my chubby cheeks. Thankfully the recipe for these are posted, as Josh Elkin is never one to hoard the jewels to himself.

We all owe you one, Recipe Champ.
