28 Best Brian Lagerstrom Recipes

In the meantime, here are 28 of the best Brian Lagerstrom recipes to try at home:

PBJ From Scratch

I mean, who doesn’t love a PBJ? It’s the perfect comfort food.

But, when do I like serving this?

Well, usually when I’m craving something sweet and salty.

This dish is also great for a quick snack or light meal.

Ways To Mix It Up

If you want to mix things up, you could try using different types of bread or even grilling the sandwich.

You could also experiment with different types of peanut butter or jelly. Get creative!

Thick Burger, 3 Ways

I love seeing a big, juicy burger on my plate.

This recipe is for a thick burger that is cooked three different ways.

Ways To Mix It Up

There are endless ways to mix up this recipe.

You can add cheese, bacon, avocado, or any other toppings that you like.

You can also change the type of meat that you use.

I like to use ground beef, but you could also use ground turkey, chicken, or lamb.

Super Fudgy Brownies, 3 Ways

Serve these to your kids, or to your friends at a party. They will be loved by all, and you’ll be glad you made them!

Ways To Mix It Up

  • Add frosting: You can make a chocolate frosting to top these brownies with, or go for a vanilla frosting. Be creative!
  • Add nuts: Mix in some chopped nuts, or sprinkle them on top.
  • Get creative with toppings: Try adding candy, sprinkles, or even crumbled cookies on top of these brownies.

Lobster Rolls

Why not serve these lobster rolls at your next summer BBQ? They’re sure to be a hit!

Ways To Mix It Up

If you want to mix things up, you could try serving the lobster rolls with a side of coleslaw or potato salad.

Summer Tomato Tartine

Fresh pesto and rustic bread compliment each other in this recipe for a summer tomato tartine.

Pesto is traditionally made with basil, but in this case, I’ve used a mix of herbs including parsley, mint, and oregano.

The sweetness of the tomatoes is a perfect contrast to the sharpness of the pesto.

I love serving this as a light lunch or appetizer.

Ways To Mix It Up

  • If you’re looking for a heartier meal, try adding some cooked chicken or shrimp to the tartine.
  • You could also swap out the rustic bread for a whole grain or seeded bread.
  • For a vegetarian option, try using a white bean spread in place of the pesto.

Smoked Beef (Easier Than Brisket)

Home-smoked beef that’s (almost) just as good as brisket?

Yes, please!

This recipe is my go-to when I’m looking for an impressive, but easy to make, dish.

I love serving it at dinner parties or family gatherings.

It’s always a hit!

Ways To Mix It Up

If you’re feeling adventurous, try smoking the beef using different types of wood.

I’ve found that hickory and mesquite work well.

Just make sure to not use too much or the meat will be too smoky.

Looking for a more traditional brisket flavor?

Try using a beef rub before smoking.

This will give the meat a nice flavor that’s similar to what you’d find in a Texas-style brisket.

30-Minute Gyro Taco

This recipe for weeknight gyros (that are actually kind of tacos) is perfect when you want something a little bit different, but don’t want to spend a lot of time in the kitchen.

Plus, it’s an easy way to get everyone to eat their veggies!

Ways To Mix It Up

If you want to, you can swap out the ground beef for ground lamb.

And, if you’re feeling really adventurous, you could even try making your own tzatziki sauce!

The Perfect Squishy Burger Bun

This recipe reaches new levels of soft squishiness previously unknown to humankind, making it the perfect burger bun.

When I want to indulge in a burger that’s dripping with juice, this is the recipe I turn to.

Ways To Mix It Up

If you’re feeling adventurous, try adding some shredded cheese to the dough before shaping it into buns.

Or, for a sweet twist, try adding a bit of sugar and cinnamon to the dough.

These buns are so versatile, the possibilities are endless!

Ultimate BBQ Sides (Baked Beans, Creamy Slaw, Street Corn)

Sides can make or break a BBQ.

If you want to really impress your guests, make sure to serve up some amazing sides.

My personal favorite BBQ sides are the baked beans.

These three sides are the perfect balance of savory and sweet.

The baked beans are nice and hearty, the creamy slaw is cool and refreshing, and the street corn is sweet and juicy.

Plus, they all look great on a plate!

Ways To Mix It Up

Of course, you can always mix things up and try new things.

If you’re feeling adventurous, why not try making a different kind of slaw?

Or, you could try serving the corn on the cob whole instead of cutting it into pieces.

Buffalo Cauliflower “Wings”

Vegetarian or not, these cauliflower wings are delicious and perfect for game day!

I like to serve them with a dipping sauce and a side of celery and carrots.

Ways To Mix It Up

If you want to, you can bread the cauliflower before you bake it.

Just dip it in some milk, then coat it in a mixture of flour, salt, and pepper.

You can also add different spices to the buffalo sauce to change up the flavor.

The Party Sub

This one is huge, it looks cool, and it’s easy to make ahead.

I like to serve it at big gatherings where people are milling about and snacking.

It’s also great for game-day parties.

Ways To Mix It Up

If you want to get really creative, you can try different meats and cheeses.

I’ve used everything from roast beef to salami to turkey to chicken.

And for cheese, I like to mix it up too.

I’ve used cheddar, Swiss, provolone, and even mozzarella.

2 Recipes For Perfectly Grilled Chicken

Perfect, juicy grilled chicken every time!

This is my go-to recipe when I’m grilling chicken for my family.

I love that it’s so simple and easy to follow, and the results are always amazing.

Ways To Mix It Up

If you’re looking for a little bit of variety, there are plenty of ways to mix up this recipe.

Try using different herbs and spices in the rub, or adding some BBQ sauce to the chicken before grilling.

You can also experiment with different types of chicken – I’ve used boneless, skinless chicken breasts and thighs with great results.

Weeknight Steak Fajitas

Fajitas are too easy and too good to not to have at least once a week.

I love to serve them with a simple green salad on the side.

Ways To Mix It Up

I sometimes like to add a little bit of spice to my fajitas by adding some diced jalapeños to the mix.

If I’m feeling really adventurous, I’ll even add a little bit of chopped up bacon to the mix.

3 Potato Salad Recipes (Classic, German, and Loaded Baker)

Potato salad is an often overlooked side dish, but it’s perfect for summer picnics and barbecues.

I like to make a big batch of potato salad and keep it in the fridge for a quick and easy side dish all week long.

Ways To Mix It Up

There are endless ways to mix up potato salad.

My personal favorite is the German potato salad, which is made with a vinegar and bacon dressing.

For a lighter option, try my classic potato salad recipe.

And for a heartier dish, try my loaded potato salad, which is made with diced ham and cheese.

Glazed Donuts

Behold the glazed donut: a classic breakfast (or dessert) food that can be enjoyed in so many ways.

I love serving this recipe to friends and family because it’s always a hit.

Ways To Mix It Up

One of the great things about this recipe is that it can be easily customized to suit your taste.

For example, you can change up the glaze by using different flavored syrups or jams.

You could also experiment with different types of flour to see what texture you like best.

And of course, you can always top your donuts with sprinkles, chocolate chips, or other fun toppings. Get creative and have fun with it!

The Crispiest Potatoes Without a Fryer

Brian truly knows how to make the crispiest potatoes without using a fryer and I love serving them as a side to any meal.

They are perfectly crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside.

I like to serve them with a dipping sauce on the side.

Ways To Mix It Up

If you want to mix things up, try adding some herbs and spices to the potatoes before cooking them.

This gives them an extra flavor that takes them to the next level. You can also top them with cheese or sour cream after they are cooked.

Banh Mi with Crispy Baguette

Rich, seared pork belly cut by herbs and a touch of acidity wrapped in a crispy, chewy baguette is how I like to enjoy my banh mi.

This dish is perfect for when you want something hearty and filling, but still crave the bright flavors of Vietnam.

Ways To Mix It Up

If you want to lighten up the dish, substitute the pork belly for grilled chicken or shrimp.

Or, for a vegetarian option, try marinated tofu. If you’re in the mood for something a little spicier, add some jalapeño slices to your banh mi.

Shredded Beef Enchiladas

Not very traditional, but VERY delicious – these enchiladas are perfect for when you’re short on time, but still want to impress your guests!

Ways To Mix It Up

If you’re feeling adventurous, try adding some shredded chicken or pork to the beef.

You can also switch up the cheese, using a blend of cheddar and Jack, or even pepper Jack for a little extra spice.

Creamy New York Cheesecake

Cheesecake at its finest, this New York-style recipe has a creamy, smooth filling and a rich flavor.

The classic cheesecake is always a hit, and this one is no different.

It’s perfect for a special occasion or a casual get-together.

Ways To Mix It Up

There are a few ways you can change up this recipe to suit your taste.

For a lighter cheesecake, you can use low-fat cream cheese.

If you want a more intense flavor, you can use full-fat cream cheese.

You can also use different types of cheese, such as cheddar or Parmesan, in the filling.
