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.

Bloody Valentine – How to cook three kinds of heart with your coffee maker

Valentine’s Day is called “Alla hjärtans dag” in Sweden and literally that translates “All of the hearts’ day”. So I went and bought three kinds of hearts (didn’t find any more) so it’s not really a “All of the hearts’s day”-recipe, but at least a three hearts’ recipe – lamb, chicken and pig. Well, a four hearts’ recipe if you count the love from your own heart that you’ll put in the making of this dish.

If we put this jibber jabber aside and get to the point. How do you cook heart with a coffee maker? I asked myself that question yesterday and like with the testies recipe I didn’t have a clue. The only thing I knew was that if it taste like liver it’s not right. So when it started to smell like liver during the cooking I got kind of nervous. I don’t know if I imagined the smell, or if the other ingredients hid the taste of liver, because the finished dish didn’t taste like liver.

So, this my friend, is how you cook three different kinds of heart on your coffee maker and make a romantic salad out of it.

Actually I don’t really care at all about Valentine’s Day. The “usual” celebration of this day anyway. My approach however to the day and my recipe I find is darn good. This is a recipe that contains a lot of hearts (this makes more sense in Sweden because of the Swedish name for Valentine’s – “All of the hearts’ day”)! There is a large surplus of hearts (and other parts of course) after the animals were slaughtered so this is a good day to celebrate the nose to tail eating instead. So from the bottom of my heart I wish you a lovely All of the hearts’ day.
