How to cook a Club Sandwich with your coffee maker

how to cook food with your coffee maker

Time

2.5 hrs

Ingredients

  • 3 slices of bread (I used olive ciabatta )
  • 1 plate (the amount that fits on the coffee maker plate) of bacon
  • 1 plate of chicken
  • Lettuce
  • Tomato
  • Cheese

Dressing

  • 2 tsp mayonnaise
  • 2 tsp crème fraîche
  • 2 tsps Dijon mustard
  • Chili pepper
  • Red Cabbage

Instructions

Start the coffee maker. Toast the bread slices on both sides, directly on the coffee maker plate. When finished, put them aside.

Cut bacon and fry this too directly on the plate until it becomes crispy and nice. Takes about 45 minutes. Now it’s time for the chicken! Chop chicken fillet into small pieces. Maybe you’d like to clean the plate after frying the bacon, but I fried the chicken in the bacon grease since it wasn’t too burned. Fry until the chicken is well done. As you hopefully know, the chicken should not be at pink at all. That’s not good.

While the chicken is cooking, you can fix the rest. Mix all of the dressing stuff together and chop the red cabbage. The coleslaw, that I served with the sandwich, consists of the dressing left over mixed with the red cabbage. So don’t mix the dressing with the cabbage just yet. Wait until after the construction of the sandwich.

Turn off the coffeemaker.

When all the food is cooked, it’s time for the construction. First, a slice of bread and then dressing, lettuce, chicken, cheese, bacon, tomato, bread again, dressing, lettuce, cheese, tomato, chicken, bacon, dressing and at last a piece of bread on top. No, I do not remember if it’s the exact order… But something like that.

Enjoy!

How to cook a pizza with your coffee maker – VIDEO!

When the film crew was here and recorded my web show, The Swedish Coffee Maker Chef, there was no time to cook pizza from scratch so we bought a pre-cooked dough that came with salsa as well. I have coffee maker cooked pizzas a couple of times before and I will post one of those recipes after this clip, and then you can choose how you would like to cook your pizza.

 MINI PIZZA

cooking with your coffee maker

Time

Approximately 3 hours for one mini pizza

Ingredients

It’s hard to write an exact recipe for a mini pizza, it such small amounts. The dough is a recipe for a large pizza, which you may divide into smaller pieces. It is also possible to freeze the pizza dough.

Pizza dough (for many mini pizzas)
50 g yeast
1 teaspoon salt (preferably sea salt flavored with rosemary)
A pinch of sugar
3 dl water
0.5 ml olive oil
9 dl flour
butter

Tomato sauce (also very small amounts)
Passata
Tomato paste
Pepper
Frozen herb mixture

Topping (for two or three mini pizzas)
½ small onion
1 can of tuna
1 tsp Mango Chutney
Grated cheese
Feta cheese
Peanuts
Curry
Salt
Pepper
Oil
Pizza Seasoning

Instructions

Mix the yeast, salt, sugar, oil and lukewarm water in a bowl. Stir it so that it blends properly. Stir in about 8 dl flour (a little at a time) so that the dough becomes smooth. Prover the dough in the bowl under a cloth in a half hour. Take a piece of dough, about the size of a golf ball, and knead it thoroughly on a floured surface. Add more flour if dough is too sticky. Flatten this properly and shape it so that it fits the heater.

how to cook food with your coffee maker

Like a professional! ;)

Start the coffee maker. Pour a small amount of oil directly on the heater, and heat it properly – about 10 minutes. Place the thin pizza crust on the heater and bake it for about fifteen minutes on both sides, or until it has a nice color and are no longer doughy. Remove the pizza crust and clean the heater.

cooking with your coffee maker

Pour a dash of oil in the carafe and heat it for about 15 minutes. Chop the onion in the meantime and fry all of it in the coffee maker carafe for about 25 minutes.

Now it’s time to prepare the tomato sauce! Mix in a little tomato puree along with the passed tomatoes and season with pepper and herb mix. Stir. Easy peasy! Mix tuna, mango chutney, curry and cheese (or whatever you like to have on your pizza) in the carafe along with the onion. Fry this in the coffee carafe for half an hour. Stir occasionally. Season with salt and pepper. Turn off your coffee maker.

Carafe-fry the topping.

Spread a layer of tomato sauce on the pizza crust and after that add tuna topping. Sprinkle the pizza spice and peanuts over your fantastic meal. Serve with a fresh salad and a cold beer. Omnomnomnom.

Traditional Swedish coffee maker made “Äggatårta” (=egg cake)

Aaaw, the “Äggatårta” (=egg cake) brings back so many beautiful memories. It’s a very traditional Swedish recipe and I don’t remember any christmas, midsummer, period party, wedding, easter or birthday without the Äggatårta. Since easter is just around the corner I will now show you how to cook an Äggatårta with your coffee maker. Do I need to tell you that the higher Äggatårta the better..?

If you don’t know how to serve your ugly eggs on your uninspiring easter table… Serve them like this.

Cooking with your coffee maker

Time

  • Depends on how high you want to make it. This one took 5 hours. Worth every second.

Ingredients

(for the Äggatårta in this post)

  • 11 eggs
  • Lots of mayonnaise
  • Lots of Kalles kaviar (oh, you’ll probably have to import that one, right?)
  • Pepper
  • Butter

Instructions

This Äggatårta is build by hard boiled and turned over eggs, glued with mayonnaise and then decorated with the Kalles kaviar.

Put six of the eggs in the coffee maker carafe and pour water into the coffee brewer. Start your coffee maker. The eggs have to be hard boiled so I coffee maker cooked them for almost 1½ hour (just to be super sure (well, I also might have forgot about them for a while…)). Pour off the warm water, dunk them in some cool water and shell them.

Melt butter directly on the heater. Crack an egg on it and fry it pretty hard on both sides. It takes about 30 minutes to make a turned over egg. The Äggatårta in the picture got four turned over eggs. Since it’s important that all of the turned over eggs are perfectly round and have the same size, the coffee maker heater is the perfect weapon of choice for this, even though it takes some time. Turn off the coffee maker when you’re done.

Construction time! Divide all the hard boiled eggs in half, except for one. Put a turned over egg on a plate. Place three egg halves onto the turned over egg. Glue them together with mayonnaise and season with pepper. Go on like that until you place the last turned over egg. Now you’ll have one whole egg, and one egg half left. Shred the whole egg and top nicely with the thin egg slices.And now decoration time – aka Kalles kaviar time! String a lot of caviar over the whole cake. Put the last egg half on top and decorate with even more Kalles. Yum!

Now, let’s get this easter party started!

Open faced easter sandwiches

cooking with your coffee maker

Time

  • 2 hours

Ingredients

(approx. 6 sandwiches)
  • 12 eggs (6 eggs for decoration)
  • 1 dl mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp sour cream
  • 1 red onion
  • 1 carrot
  • Some ham
  • Horseradish
  • A dash of lemon juice
  • Caprice
  • 1 avocado
  • A couple of radishes
  • 1 tsp of Scanian mustard (or some other kind if you’re not from Skåne and have a scanian mustard addiction like I do)
  • Chives
  • Cayenne pepper
  • Pepper
  • Salt
  • Lettuce
  • Bread
  • Butter
  • Beetroot salad

Instructions

Place eggs in coffee maker can, water into the brewer and start your coffee maker. Cook until the eggs are very hard boiled – at least for a good hour. Meanwhile peel, grate, chop and slice all of the other ingredients. Drain water and put the eggs in cold water for a short while. Turn off coffee maker. Crack egg shells and carefully peel the eggs. Mix eggs with the other ingredients (except for salad, bread, butter and beetroot salad).

Butter a slice of bread, add egg/ham salad, place a couple of lettuce leaves and finish with the egg decor. I made a little egg baby bunny and a chick. The ears of the bunny is a sliced carrot, the nose a piece of radish, the eyes are caprices and chives for whiskers. For the chick I cut a jagged line around the top of the egg. Be sure just to cut the white part of the egg so that it will look like it’s hatching. For eyes I used red onion and the beak and feet are pieces of carrots.

Make sure the hot water cover all of the eggs…

How to cook Easter Lollipops with your coffee maker.

This didn’t turn out quite as I had imagined. In my mind it would be super sweet lollipops shaped like cute easter bunnies and perfectly formed eggs. I wanted my nails to match the colorful feather decorations, but the only thing that matches is the dirt I got under my nails and the egg lollipop that looks like dog shit.

But it tastes better than it looks (I actually think it’s a quite common and popular recipe). That is if you like the taste of pure sugar.

Cooking with your coffee maker

As you can see, my fingers all cramped up when I tried to show off my (un)matching nails.

Time

  • 1 hour

Ingredients

  • 1 dollop of butter
  • 1 bag of marshmallows
  • 100 g dark chocolate
  • 1 bowl of Coco Pops
  • Stuff to decorate the lollipops with

Instructions

Start your coffee maker. Melt butter in the carafe and add marshmallows. This will melt quite quickly, after like 20 minutes. Add chopped chocolate, stir, and add coco pops into the mixture when everything has melted. Turn off the coffee maker.

Pour the batter onto a baking sheet and flatten it. When it cools a little it’s time for you to start trying to form it like bunnies and eggs. Press a stick in the bottom and decorate it as well as you are able to.

Dan wasn’t sure it was going to melt… Pfff, you can cook everything with a coffee maker!

Spring rolls!

March = Noodle month! Plain noodles were some of the very first things I cooked with my coffee maker. Back in the days this was a great revolution for me (=an introvert student preferably locked in my dorm room). Now I didn’t have to be social with the other students that I shared the kitchen with. Such a relief! But that was many years ago, I’ve advanced my cooking skillz so today I’ll spice things up and show you how to cook Spring rolls with your coffee maker.

coffee machine cuisine

Time

  • About 3 ½ hours

Ingredients

  • Spring rolls (8 small ones)
  • Spring roll wrapper
  • 50 g of rice noodles
  • 1-1 ½ dl cabbage
  • 1 carrot
  • 1 small onion
  • 1 clove garlic
  • ½ red chili
  • 15 Haricots verts
  • 3 tbsp Mango Chutney
  • 2 tbsp peanuts
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Oil
  • 1 tbsp Maizena
  • 1 tbsp water
  • Sweet Chili Sauce
  • Peanuts

Instructions

Remove the thawed spring roll wrappers from the package and place them under a damp towel.

Put the rice noodles in the can and pour the water into the brewer. Start your coffeemaker and let the noodles cook for about fifteen minutes. Meantime chop cabbage, carrot, onion, chili, peanuts and haricots verts.

Drain and stir the noodles in a bowl along with the chopped ingredients. Press down the garlic and add mango chutney. Stir and season with salt and pepper.

Heat a dash of oil in the can and add the spring roll filling. Coffee maker can cook for about an hour.

When your spring roll filling is ready, it is the time to fold them into the wrappers. Carefully cut the wrapper into four equal parts. They will fit perfectly on the coffee maker heater! Do like this:

  • 1. Place the filling in the middle of the dough.
  • 2. Take one corner and fold it over the filling.
  • 3. Keep the nosey cat away from filling.
  • 4. Fold the edges.
  • 5. Roll the spring roll.
  • 6. Keep the nosey cat away from spring roll.
  • 7. Secure by dripping some of the maizena/water mixture on the ends.

Did you get that at all? Probably not. But you will once you’re at it.

Heat the oil directly on the coffee maker heater. Fry the spring rolls (it fits about 4 spring rolls at a time) on all sides for a total of half an hour, or until they get a nice golden color. Turn off your coffee maker.

Serve with lots and lots of sweet chili sauce (if you like sweet chili sauce as much as I do).
