This Viral TikTok Will Change the Way You Make Crispy Potatoes
From Dalgona whipped coffee to cloud bread, TikTok has provided us with a seemingly endless stream of esoteric cooking content. And while we love an over-the-top indulgent, borderline absurd dessert idea just as much as the next person, sometimes TikTok surprises us with a humbler recipe hack; one that doesn't involve a mountain of edible glitter, hot pink food coloring, and six cans of sweetened condensed milk.
Take, for example, TikTok user Jeremy Scheck's viral crispy potato recipe. The 20-year-old's video clip has garnered nearly 20 million views and 1.7 million likes and counting (one of which came from Kylie Jenner), so you know there's something to TikTok content that features regular food.
Scheck's method is smart, scientifically informed, and incredibly delicious—and this is coming from a food editor that feels so passionate about the technique involved in roasting potatoes that she once made her own video about the Maillard reaction.
