This morning, I woke up craving a comforting bowl of noodle soup. I was out late last night catching up with an old friend, and today the wind chill dipped under 30°F. I've been eyeing this Teriyaki Chicken Noodle Soup, a mash-up of teriyaki chicken and udon soup that's both familiar and unusual at the same time. Two of my favorites mean double the comfort. Today may be the day I finally make it.

So I wasn't surprised when Pinterest revealed its predictions this week for the biggest food trends of 2024, and included a category it's calling Melty Mashups, recipes that fuse two classics into one new dish.

Pinterest describes it as, "Melt in your mouth—but make it double. This trend takes two ooey-gooey, treat-yourself favorites and marries them to make mouth-watering, melty mashups like "burger quesadillas" and "pizza pot pies," to which I say amen!

Pinterest knows what recipes people—its 445 million active monthly users—are clicking on most. And it's banking on home cooks making recipes that deliver double the comfort in 2024. Luckily, Simply Recipes knows comfort, loves cheese, and recipes are our thing. Here are 15 Melty Mashups recipes from our site to get you started on the new year with gusto:
