We've fallen victim to binge-watching a certain (Buzz)feed stream of food videos time and time again.

Ahead, we've compiled our favorite food combinations that we promise you can re-create. From an avocado-based carbonara to a pizza made with waffle batter and a waffle iron, these inventive food combinations in the form of instructional videos will provide infinite viewing—and dining—pleasure.
