We need your HELP!!

You might be familiar with our ‘3 Ways To Make’ series where we’ve compared three recipes for the same dish (like ramen! -> http://bit.ly/YTRamen3Ways)…well after making over one and a half thousand videos on YouTube (crazy, right?!), we start to struggle to think of ideas.

Which is why we thought we’d turn to you guys. You always have the best ideas and have inspired our greatest videos so we reckon you can do it again – if you have ANY ideas that you think we could turn into a ‘3 Ways To Make’ video, drop us a comment!

    Risotto for sure.
    I have a lazy way and a proper way, but would love an in between!

  2. Shorttimer

    Rather than a dish I’d like to suggest a method.

    Using the Sous Vide method, it’s easy to cook multiple items at one time as long as they have similar time / temperature charts. Change things up with rubs, pan sauce ( using the juice in the bag? ) ( Fireball makes a surprising great deglazer ), or added ingredients.

    I’ve been wanting to try it with chicken breast, but don’t know how to get dishes that complement each other.

  3. Welshcake

    Ragu! Ragu can take 45 minutes to eight hours to make and I’d love to see how time changes the taste. And who doesn’t love a spagetti bolognese, yum!

  4. GeorgiaPeach

    I have recently found you guys on Youtube and have fallen in love with you guys. I like how y’all take cooking serious but in a fun and playful way. I like that way Y’all do the pass it on and how the recipes come out. Have y’all ever done crepes, waffles and chicken or chicken and dumplings. I live in Georgia (US) and we have a vegetable called rutabaga and I was wondering if you could make it taste good.

    • he rutabaga swede or neep is a root vegetable

  5. Bassplayercakery

    Hi guys, This is my first time commenting on your forum and I’ve just recently found your guys Youtube channel and my roommate and I absolutely love watching you guys and trying some of the recipes you guys put out. I would love to see you guys do shepherd’s pie 3 ways.

  6. 3 ways with…………. CABBAGE

    that’ll put the wind up ya… (sorry that was a Dad joke)

  7. Anita

    Does it have to be about cooking time? If not, what about different diets? E.g. traditional, vegan, paleo burgers.

  8. songgrl01

    Cheesecake there is Instant, New York style, and a lot of people have started doing their own versions in Instant Pots/ pressure cooker.

  9. Citrine

    How about 3 ways to make

    Cheese sauce… including at least one without a white sauce base…
    Bubble and Squeak
    A balanced fruit and cheese platter
    Stuffed olives and antipasto plates
    Flat bread

  10. Agate

    Something that is not very popular or people do not use, because it is weird, but in fact are delicious. Like buckwheat, Grey/ Black/ Carling/ Pigeon Peas, pearl barley, it would be interesting to see what you can do.

  11. Lidka

    Hi,
    Dumplings would be my suggestion. Growing up in Poland I’ve always believed them being native to my country but moving to Australia I discovered that Chinese claim them us there own too. Had an Chinese friend coming once for dinner so I thought something very Polish would be nice. Made dumplings. His firts comment was:”Oh we are having Chinese food tonight.” Then was an argument who owns copyrights to dumplings. I think Italians good join in into the conversation as well.

    • Nah651

      dumplings as in pierogi (as I know them in Canada) would be amazing I eat them so often it would be nice to see it 3 ways

      • Lidka

        Yeah, dumplings as pierogi. 🙂

  12. BurtMacklin

    Beer battle. As Ben knows beer is easy to make but hard to make well. Take advantage of your local breweries. Make a base beer with them as an introduction, then take off three casks Firken or Quater’s to flavor.

    For judging bring back the brewers and maybe even do a charity event for judging your beers. Cask beers don’t last long because they oxidize and their flavors get weird the longer they’re tapped, drink it while its fresh.

  13. BurtMacklin

    Keto is pretty big in the states right now. High fat, protein, little to no carbs.

  14. Nah651

    Wings? different meats, sauces, breaded or unbreaded? cooking methods? fried, baked or bbq?

  15. Charlie33

    What about macaroni cheese? You could do a microwave one, a standard one and a fancy one baked in the oven with breadcrumbs and gratinated cheese

    • ciarandly_14

      you could also do it with different pastas to see if macorroni is really the best pasta for it

  16. BurgerBoi04

    As shown in my name I really like burgers. So how about burgers three ways? That would be interesting.

  17. nyfranz

    How about crab, including the dark meat and roe. I dare you.

  18. Allegra

    Can you show us ways to cook unpopular root vegetables?

  19. Fantalstic

    Avocado toast? I really want to see you play with something so simple

  20. aeklak

    your perfect roast dinner with homemade yorkies and choice of protein

  21. aeklak

    bread and butter pudding or the best club sandwich or mince and tatties

  22. Danip

    Soup!
    Everyone loves soup right?
    Or other lunch items….
    Sandwiches
    Pasta salad

  23. Yumi

    3 ways to make fries/chips! I think it’d be cool to compare baked/fried/double fried versions, maybe with the potato type/cut as well?

  24. Apparently_a_foodie

    meat and 3 veg is also a really good fit. make it a simple midweek meal, something with a home made (basic)sauce and something resembling a roast

    preferably using the same meat and veg..

  25. Biancamilla

    Oooh for Christmas it would be really cool with 3 ways to make stuffing!!

  26. rissi_jo

    What about 3 ways to make tacos? I love them but I seem to get stuck making them the same way every single time. It would be nice to mix it up with different flavors or even different meats!

  27. Asommerv

    3 ways to make:
    – Rice Pudding
    – Falafel
    -Pho!
    -Risotto

  28. Biancamilla

    3 ways to make basic tomato pizza sauce and you could compare them on margheritas 😀
    (my favorite is to blanch peel fresh tomatoes and cook into a sauce with fresh oregano and thyme + a single whole sage leaf)

  29. Rhosyncoch

    Fraisier Cake? (As seen on GBBO many years ago https://www.bbc.com/food/recipes/fraisier_cake_75507 )

    Custard Slices

    Cottage/Shepherds Pie

    Beef and Tomatoes 3 ways – this could be handy for the viewers starting uni as you can batch cook the base and then make several dishes from it e.g. Spag Bol, Lasagna, Chilli Con Carne, Stuffed marrow, Moussaka

    Preserving fruit or veg 3 ways – acid (pickles/chutney), fermented (e.g. Sauerkraut/Kimchi) and sugar (jams, jellies, marmalades etc)

  30. Sweg_Potaters

    Maybe you guys could do a 3 ways salted egg yolk! Salted egg yolk dishes can be sweet, savoury, sometimes spicy.

  31. ChrisP

    A specific cut of meat, perhaps a sirloin or ribeye steak, done 3 ways! Either different levels of marbling (prime vs choice, etc) or even the same cut cooked in different styles?

    I’d love to see you guys show the different levels you can take protein. I recently did your cola marinated grilled steak for the family and it was a HUGE success.

  32. cathmanuel

    Three ways to make fried chicken? Doesn’t it really help to have a buttermilk/pickle juice brine or is there a faster and easier alternative?

    • regr3Shun

      I really like this idea, because there are definitely cheats to make fried chicken quickly

  33. Joeyshouse

    Pickles! It’s summer, there lots of stuff to pickle and lots of ways to do it.

  34. LadyMindkey

    I’d like to see you guys try nachos. There’s so many different kinds of toppings, cheeses and chips that can be used. See which of you can make the best combo. Love your show! 🙂

  35. Susiesue

    Just some ideas…

    Fish and chips
    Stirfry
    Soup
    Sausage rolls
    Mushrooms
    Rice
    Garlic bread

    • LadyMindkey

  36. GrumpyChef

    Some ideas:
    – Stroopwafel (as seen on GBBO season 8 ;).
    – Risotto
    – Taco/enchilada/burrito
    – Goulash
    – Donuts (Baked vs. fried & baking powder vs. yeast)

  37. TheSaxaphone5518

    Cookies? Everyone likes cookies right? (Ask Cookie Monster). Like the first one could be a microwave cookie, the next a generic cookie baked in the oven, and lastly some insane cookie that Ben is crazy enough to make, but it’s totally worth it.

  38. Rhea0903

    What about 3 ways/techniques to cook a fish fillet. Eg. Pan grilling or baking,with basic lemon and garlic would be easy while baking it in another crust is more complicated

    • Rhea0903

      Also – noodles; Super simple 5 min version like peanut butter and soy sauce to more elaborate wok fried noodles; BLT sandwiches; PBJ sandwiches (ever had PBJ french toast or wrapped in bacon and deep fried?)

  39. Tender-Sheep

    Perogies please! Polish pasta filled with mashed potatoes,cheese, and onion. They can be boiled, baked,and sauteed, change the fillings if you like and serve them with almost anything!

  40. mcveigh.grainne

    Ben said in the recent cheesecake video that the reason that all the cheesecakes tasted as good as they did was because of the decent vanilla and he’s mentioned before about how you gotta use extract not essence and all that. It’d be cool to see a video delving into that vanilla debacle maybe? The difference between essence, store bought extract and a homemade extract? And if a non-chefy can tell the difference (blindfolded, of course)

  41. JamMarBar

    Could you do guacamole three ways please? Like one with just mashed up avocado and up to one that includes tomatillo. Plus did you know if you keep the stone in after it is made it helps keep it from going brown? Love you guys, you rock!

    • Sorted

      Aw yeah nice one. We’ve levelled up guac but would be good to apply it to ‘3 Ways!’

      • JamMarBar

        What??? It is awesome on EVERYTHING! 🙂 We have it chips, on tacos, burritos and even with Steak fajitas! Plus how could you possibly not do my idea? LOL

  42. Hadder

    How about 3 ways to make a classic dessert treat: Sugar Cookies.

  43. NTeamGT

    3 ways to make Greek Kleftiko?, (Vegan, Vegetarian and the classic Lamb). Could be a laugh 🙂

  44. Catmay

    Could you do more recipes / challenges using vegetables like potatoes ( not just chips) squashes, carrots, cauliflower, broccoli or onions or even beetroot. If you could incorporate spices as well that would be fantastic

  45. Staceface

    Three ways to make pizza! Five minute pitta bread version.. A “no yeast” quick dough version..and then… The most amazing pizza dough ever imagined…

    I might need some pizza now. Yep.

  46. itsAdam

    Steak! BBQ? Mexican style with salsa? Um, another way?
    Pasta Bake- I don’t know why but English people seem to love it lol me included.

    I just thought of a new entire series though! “Homemade vs Takeaway” or a similar title. Basically you guys choose a style, order it from a local takeaway, and then you try and make similar dishes in the studio. You can do indian, Chinese, Italian etc the list goes on. You could also compare the cost and maybe how healthy each version is. So one team cooks while another orders the takeaway and you can have a funny cut between the cooking and maybe whatever else the other team are doing. Then you come together and compare it at the end. I think its got the potential to be popular. Maybe you can’t beat takeaway fish and chips, or maybe my local place is just really good haha. But it’d be fun to see you guys try and beat it especially because takeaways are not even cheap these days.

  47. CamrynAlaia

    Some ideas…
    Loaded Chips/Fries
    Pasta Salad
    Potato Salad
    Breakfast Casserole/Bake
    Tornado Potatoes
    Vegetable Tart
    Savoury Roulade (i.e. a courgette or cheese and sweet potato etc)
    Kedgeree
    Fudge
    Fruit Tacos

  48. gfbSnouk

    Hi guys, here are a couple more ideas:
    – Beets 3 Ways (ex: Borscht, Beet Salad, Beet Shake)
    – Cauliflower 3 Ways (ex: Cauliflower Mash, Cheese Baked Cauliflower with Artichoke, Gobi Manchurian)

  49. ChrisW

    I’m going to be selfish here and suggest a rabbit battle because I need some new recipes besides just a stew.

  50. Cici.83

    How about making something 3 ways for the World Cup 2018

  51. SBaudtler

    Hey! Not sure if this is the correct forum for this type of feedback, BUT…

    I noticed (and have before)—on your Instagram post about the Supper Club—that your plating is quite homogeneous.

    How about a “3 ways to plate” where the comfort zone is challenged? 😀

  52. daisytje

    Am I too late for this? 3 ways to make BBQ pork, the Chinese one (Char Siu). Or yakatori chicken. I’d love you forever <3

  53. tdawg1321

    Can you guys make more videos With sous vide? I just bought a set for my dad for fathers day

  54. Trigjam24

    How about a Mac and cheese as I have seen at least 5 different ways of making mac and cheese sauces some do it in oven and others on the hob but they always taste good.

  55. SBaudtler

    3 ways to make pancakes might be fun. Thin French crepes, fluffy American-style and those really tall Asian (however offensive, I’ve forgotten whether they’re Japanese or not!) pancakes.

    • Trigjam24

      The jappanise call there’s Poffertjes witch is a fluffy pancake.

      • Trigjam24

        The American is sweet the French is crepés and the Scottish is more of a lighter taste with out the sweetens.

      • daisytje

        Poffertjes are Dutch pancakes. They are tiny, yummy and we have a special pan to cook them in.

      • Poffertjes are Dutch.

        Source? I’m Dutch

    • Biancamilla

      Austrian kaiserschmarrn would be cool.. I really love Swedish pancakes too :3

  56. Lethal91

    I’m thinking maybe 3 Ways to Make Pesto, have 3 different pestos and try to pair it with a certain dish or maybe pasta… maybe challenge yourself to make a sweet pesto.

  57. Skippingwinter

    How about a video about soup? Like a simple student noodle soup in contrast to a really fancy gourmet soup?

  60. Deanbf

    Chicken and waffles: Asian, American, Mexican
    Mac and Cheese: Classic, Can’t be asked, One-Pot
    Dumplings from 3 different countries

  61. Attol

    Three ways to make pralines. The last one has to be with home made chocolate (occasionally I make them at home with cocoa butter, (cocoa), icing sugar (and milk powder) ) It´s really cool to make your own chocolate…

  62. Itin

    I’ve lost track on which themes you’ve done so far.
    How about cabbage dishes, mango, swordfish or mackerel, plums, peaches, yams, cherry tomatoes, or galettes?

  63. lord_is

    I think anytime that traditionally requires a long cooking time would be a good guess.
    Boeuf Bourguignon, a good curry, chili (this one’s for you Jamie).
    Jam 3 ways could also be interesting.

  64. LucyC

    3 ways to make: pasta bake, poached eggs, and tacos

  65. DodgyJam

    3 Ways to make:
    Cheesecake
    Pancakes
    Fried Chicken
    Stock
    Icing (I know you’ve already done quite a few of these though)

    • Sorted

      YES love the idea of so many cheesecakes floating around the studio – definitely something to try!

  66. Katie J.

    Three ways to make cheese!! James did it in an hr! Are there other cheese that can be made that fast?

  67. Xenia97

    I would love a video about making cheese. James impressed me a lot with the mozzarella he made in one hour.

  68. kimseokljin

    ooo maybe three ways to snazz up spaghetti hoops on toast because i dislike baked beans and i want to snazz up some plain spaghetti hoops 😂

  69. PhilippaBing

    Three ways to make a full English and three ways to make fudge, I’d love to see you guys do a tablet recipe that strays away from tradition.

  70. SushmaV15

    Savoury breakfast options like pooris ,flatbreads and idlis which are fluffy pillows of goodness very common in the south of India . Or potatoes in desserts 3 ways !!

  71. SushmaV15

    3 ways to make bread more interesting , like a panzanella , bread and butter pudding , or a sandwich and it had to be a kind of sandwich not done before like a savoury French toast or fried fruit !! Try out frying blackberries or strawberries in panko crumbs with ice-cream or a pudding . Really creative way to use any fruit . It’s never been done on the channel before

  72. itsme.jbear

    I think you should do chicken and dumplings. Classing US comfort dish. Much like with the ramen, there are shortcuts to making this so it doesn’t become an all day process; such as using frozen dumplings instead of homemade, or using store bought chicken broth instead of boiling a whole chicken all day to make your own.

  73. givemushypeasachance

    Three Ways to Make Beans on Toast – from jazzing up the supermarket option, to a quicker DIY version, to the full bore slow cook baked bean experience.

  74. Heidicbc

    I think you should do three ways with porridge/oatmeal. You could do both sweet and savoury, vegan options, dessert oats and so on!

  75. chrella

    Spaghetti Bolognese. Here in our home the best one takes around 3-4 hours to make.

    • Jessica K.

      I like this one. I’ve seen recipes range from 30 minutes to 8 hours!

  76. SianRumble

    Scrambled eggs! I know it seems simple but even then people make it so many different ways. The 15 seconds magic scrambled eggs post by Lady And Pups might provide a little insight. 🙂

  77. Lorcian

    Coffee might be interesting, stuff like lasagne or carbonara would work well. Sponge cake would be good, going from a microwave mug cake to a full on fancy cake!

    • BenIsStinkyAndJamieToo

      Thought it would be fun to see some breakfast, I personally struggle to get creative so I always end up with a simple piece of toast. I’d love that.

      • Lorcian

        Breakfast?!?! PANCAKES! Not to mention a classic fry up, so many options there.

    • Sorted

      Cake is a really good idea, thanks!! After our attempt at a royal wedding cake maybe we’ll need a bit more help for the fancy one hahaa 😂
