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 Lingonberry Ice Cream with a coffee maker.

We spent the weekend in our cabin. After a long day’s work in the sun Dan drove and bought ice creams. Yum!

I have cooked a couple of different ice creams in my coffee maker and the very best is of course the Lingonberry Ice Cream…

Time

  • 6 hours

Ingredients

  • 2,5 dl cream
  • 2-3 egg yolks (the yolks I used was pretty small so I used 3)
  • 3/4 dl sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla sugar
  • 1-1,5 dl lingonberries
  • A couple of meringues
  • Basil leaves

Instructions

Start your coffee maker. Pour cream in the coffee maker carafe and heat it for almost an hour, it must get really warm. Give it a good whip every now and then, you know how easily cream burn.

Meanwhile mix eggs, sugar and vanilla together so it get’s fluffy. Pour the egg fluff with the warm cream in the carafe and put it back on the heater. Now this mixture shall coffee maker cook for a while until it thickens a bit, about 45 minutes. Don’t forget to stir. Turn off your coffee maker.

Before you add lingonberries and meringues let it cool for a while. Thereafter add lingonberries and meringues into the mixture and pour the ice-cream into forms. Place them in your freezer, stir every 30 minutes, until they get a nice ice-creamy consistency.

Eat and enjoy!
