Instructions

Start the coffee maker and prep the different tapas.

Bacon wrapped date plums
Cut the bacon slices in half and wrap the dates. Fry them on the heater until the bacon gets crispy and golden. Twist and turn occasionally.

Cheese filled peppers
Mix the cheese with chopped onion, a little garlic and season. Cut the top off the peppers and fill it with the delicious goo. Fry them on the heater until they get golden. Twist and turn occasionally.

Drizzle balsamic vinegar over the finished tapas.

Serrano Wrapped Halloumi
Cut halloumi into small pieces and wrap it with slices of serrano. Twist and turn occasionally until it seems finished.

Drizzle some honey over the finished tapas.

Camembert with tomato stuff
Heat a dash of oil in the carafe and add chopped mini tomatoes, parsley and a pinch of salt. Carafe-fry until it has become thoroughly heated.

Grease the heater and place the cheese on it. Fry it approximately 15 minutes on each side. Add the tomato stuff on top on the cheese when finished.

Turn off the coffee maker and serve the different tapas on a fresh bed of arugula.

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.

This is my favorite decoration. A cutesie little baby bunny that just got her head blown off. The brain substance is beet root salad.
