Open faced easter sandwiches

cooking with your coffee maker


  • 2 hours


(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


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…

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

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.

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


  • 1 hour


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


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!
