Magic Pancake Mix Quiche

2022 ushered in a lot of surprises (the resurgence of the espresso martini anyone?!) Equally surprising is the star ingredient behind this magical quiche recipe, which garnered quite a bit of 4- and 5-star ratings from our fans. As you can probably surmise from the recipe’s name, store-bought pancake mix is the hero behind this custardy, eggy creation, which first started gaining popularity way back in the 60s and 70s. All you need is one cup of the pantry staple, plus some bacon bits, shredded Cheddar cheese and diced yellow onion, and you’re on your way to #brunchgoals. This recipe is also totally customizable, so feel free to fill it with all your favorite mix-in combinations in 2023.

Stuffed Zucchini Blossoms

“These are so delish! Drooling watching this.” That’s what one fan had to say about these unique Stuffed Zucchini Blossoms from Food Network Kitchen. They weren’t the only person to sing the praises of this delicious dish — over 1.8 million of you viewed the recipe on Instagram! The one-of-a-kind delicacy features a luscious filling made from grated Parmesan and mozzarella cheeses, creamy ricotta, chopped basil and citrusy lemon zest. Whole milk ricotta from an Italian deli or specialty grocery store works best here, but if you can’t find it, be sure to read the Cook’s Note listed at the bottom of the recipe.

Pumpkin Muffins

Pumpkin spice treats have always been fairly popular with our fans, and these muffins are chock-full of the seasonally beloved ingredient. This pro-tip from recipe developer Casey Elsass is key: “add a scant 1/2 teaspoon of pumpkin spice into each well of your muffin tin and use a toothpick to swirl it into the muffin batter.” Another plus — these muffins can easily be made year-round, so you don’t need to give up your favorite fall flavor just because it’s winter or spring.

The Best Pepper Steak

Food Network Test Kitchen dubbed this their very “best” Pepper Steak recipe, and with a bunch five-star reviews, it looks like the internet agrees. We have a sneaking suspicion the overall popularity has to do with the dish’s flavorful sauce. Robust ingredients like soy sauce, ginger, Shaoxing wine and sugar make it the perfect marriage of sweet and savory. To make your Pepper Steak the best that it can be, make sure you freeze your meat for at least an hour before slicing. It’ll make all the difference when you finally dig in!

Chocolate Croissant Bread Pudding

Comfort food continued to be a fan-favorite in 2022, and it really doesn’t get any more comforting than this ooey gooey Chocolate Croissant Bread Pudding from Katie Lee Biegel. The Kitchen co-host calls the custardy dessert her “signature dish,” and with 28 5-star reviews and counting, we can totally see why! Though you’ll need to refrigerate your bread pudding at least one hour before baking it, Katie also admits that “the longer it soaks, the better it gets,” so feel free to keep your bread pudding overnight as well. Pro tip: To save yourself some pocket change, follow Katie’s advice and buy your chocolate croissants at the end of the day from your favorite bakery or cafe; you’ll most likely get them for half off.

Creamy Cheesy Orzotto

Whether you pair this orzotto with salmon, chicken or pork, or you decide to serve it as a weeknight dinner main, this brand-new recipe from Ree Drummond is #atotalvibe. The dish features one of our favorite cost-cutting tips of 2022 — using orzo pasta in place of risotto rice. Despite the ingredient swap, the dish still tastes just like classic restaurant-quality risotto thanks to the inclusion of three different cheeses — mascarpone, goat and shredded mozzarella. If you’re looking to eat a little more kale in 2023, this recipe is also a flavorful way to do so.

Campfire S’mores Strawberries

“Nostalgia” was this year’s buzzword, and fans all over the country transformed recipes from their childhoods in new and exciting ways. These Campfire S’mores Strawberries from Food Network Kitchen were one such dish. The fruity take on classic s’mores reimagined the gooey campfire treat into easily poppable bites, which can be enjoyed on the campground as well as the backyard. With 2.3 million Instagram views, it tied our Thanksgiving Focaccia (see slide 14) as the second most-watched new recipe of this year!

Juicy Mayo Roasted Turkey

If there’s one thing that continues to be true year after year, it’s that our fans love a hack, especially if it’s Thanksgiving-related. With over 3.7 million views on Instagram, this Juicy Mayo Roasted Turkey was our most-watched new recipe of 2022, and we’re pretty confident it’ll continue to rack up even more views, likes and comments in the new year. Blanketing a roast turkey in a zesty mixture of mayonnaise, paprika, garlic powder, ground sage, hot sauce, salt, black pepper, dried parsley and thyme does all the heavy lifting here. Not only does it make a delicious rub for your bird, but it also locks in extra moisture and fat, saving you from having dreaded dried out meat. The rub also helps the turkey’s skin to brown, so you won’t need to constantly bast it either.

Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches

Shortcut recipes were another thing our fans enjoyed in 2022, and these family-friendly ice cream sandwiches from Ree Drummond are as time-saving as it gets!
