Our Top 10 Fan-Favorite Recipes of 2018
These are the dishes that really got you talking (and leaving 5-star reviews!).
If we learned one thing in 2018, it’s that Food Network fans love variety. Seriously, just check out this recipe list — our fan-favorites range from ooey-gooey sliders to sweet pink marshmallows. And the tools are ever-changing as well. Though the Instant Pot has worked its way into your regular rotation (hello, Instant Pot pot roast), the sheet pan is still a tried-and-true vessel for pancakes, pork chops and everything in between. Intrigued? Here’s our top 10 fan-favorite recipes of 2018:
Four-Flavor Sheet Pan Pancakes (above)
Pancakes that you don’t have to flip? We’re here for it — and so are the fans. This pancake sheet-pan hack racked up 12 million views and more than 86,000 shares on Facebook this year, and it’s easy to see why. With a four-in-one flavor combination, this pancake dish is easy, yummy and picky-eater approved.
We can’t say we’re surprised that this is our most popular Instant Pot recipe of the year. After all, who wouldn’t love a tender, flavorful pot roast that comes together in just one pot? And, thanks to the Instant Pot, you can majorly cut down the time it takes to cook this all-in-one dish.
Food Network fans flocked to this cheesy, bacony cauliflower dish, especially around Thanksgiving. We think it's because this versatile recipe works as both a main dish or a family-friendly side — totally perfect for those busy holidays. Plus, it’s customizable — sub mushrooms for bacon if you prefer a vegetarian meal!
Look alive! Our boozy Shark Attack Punch kept our fans cool all summer long (especially during Shark Week). Though the classic lemonade and rum combo is delightfully refreshing, the punch’s true appeal comes from its whimsical design. Gummy sharks, anyone?
Garbage bread, Stromboli or something else entirely — no matter what you call it, fans certainly enjoyed this meaty, cheesy masterpiece. All the cheeseburger fixings (bacon and pickles included, naturally) are rolled into dough and baked into one party-pleasing package. Oh, and there’s a special sauce too!
We know what the fans served up for game day — Sunny Anderson’s casserole sliders! With melted cheddar, juicy roast beef and a red chili-infused butter, these super sandwiches were a slam dunk this year.
Ree Drummond's never steered us wrong, especially when it comes to family-friendly meals. Her sheet pan supper is fast, delicious and super easy — the entire thing is seasoned with just one pack of ranch dressing mix! It’s no wonder our fans ate this one up.
How adorable are Molly Yeh’s fan-favorite marshmallows? One reviewer said they’re "the most fun thing [they've] ever made." Molly’s secret? Freeze-dried raspberry powder — it’s a great natural food coloring and the tart flavor complements the sweetness of marshmallows.
You can always count on Giada De Laurentiis for a filling, flavorful dish that’s perfect for a weeknight dinner. Her combination of eggplant, sausage and two different types of cheese really charmed you guys.
How spooky is Trisha Yearwoods’s creepy-crawly pizza? Her recipe was one of our top Halloween dishes this year. Fans loved the spooky tentacles and devoured the pepperoni suction cups. Ooey-gooey green "slime" (mozzarella cheese) was the picture-perfect accessory for this stunning pizza.
