- 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
- 2 tsp mayonnaise
- 2 tsp crème fraîche
- 2 tsps Dijon mustard
- Chili pepper
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.
So what do you use to toast your bread?

Fry it thoroughly!
Obviously tapas is great to cook with a coffee maker so I’ve made lots of different dishes these past years. All of today’s tapas are delicious and very easy to cook with a coffee maker. This is how you do it.
- Bacon wrapped date plums
- Date plums
- Cheese filled peppers
- Red onion
- Cayenne Pepper
- Balsamic vinegar
- Serrano Wrapped halloumi
- Camembert with tomato stuff
- Camembert in a size that fits the heater
- Mini tomatoes
- Olive oil
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.

Sous chef Zappa helped out as always.
Everything gets better with bacon? I’ve actually tried that and will post the results in another post (it’s not true).

How to cook tapas with your coffee maker.
Have you ever eaten Flying Jakob? Before I met Dan I ate it all the time. It was one of the few dishes I knew by heart and liked to prepare before I started to cook with my coffee maker (I didn’t really cook back then at all). But since Dan has a bizarre thing against bananas I don’t cook or eat it any more (except this time recently for my web show). He absolutely hates bananas. I love bananas and especially on pizzas. I wanted to test Dan’s banana hate, because I thought he faked it, so I put just a mini piece of banana under some meat on his pizza. I mean, come on!? How bad could it be? Can you really hate a banana? Just too weird.
Well… Some people definitely hates bananas and he is obviously one of them, I know that for sure now. He got furious and spat everything out on MY pizza and then went to the toilet and almost puked.
This is how you cook Flying Jakob with your coffee maker. If you like bananas I hope you will try and cook it, it’s super tasty!
And my web show comes with subtitles now – check it out!
- 1 plate of chicken
- 1 plate of bacon
- 2 ½ dl cream
- 3 tbsp chili sauce
- A lot of ketchup
- 1 banana
- A lot of sweet chili sauce
- 1 tsp mustard
- 2 tsp tomato paste
- Chili powder
- Chili Salt
Start the coffee maker. Place bacon on the heater and fry it for like 45 minutes, it should get really crispy and golden. Replace bacon with chicken pieces and fry it throughly so you won’t get sick or die.
Once you are done with this it’s time to cook the rice. But first you must remove the chicken, turn off and unplug the coffee maker and wash the plate.
Place the rice in the coffee maker carafe, pour water into the brewer and salt into the filter thingy. Plug in and start your coffee maker again and let it cook until it’s ready. Stir every now and then so the rice won’t stick. Pour the rice in a bowl and place foil over it. Wash the coffee maker carafe.
Slice the banana and mix it with the rest of the ingredients (not bacon nor rice) into the carafe. Cook until it gets really warm and stir occasionally. Season with salt and plenty of pepper. Turn off your coffee maker.
Pour the mess over the rice and top with bacon and some more peanuts. Enjoy!

Don’t forget to stir or it will stick like hell.
How to cook Flying Jakob with a coffee maker.
- 1 potato
- 1 small onion
- ½ cauliflower head
- 6 dl vegetable broth
- 100 g Philadelphia cheese
Start your coffee maker. Fry the bacon until it gets crispy, directly on the heater. Meanwhile prepare everything else that you’ll have to cut, peel and chop. Remove bacon, unplug the coffee maker and wash it.
Start your coffee maker again because now it’s time for the soup! Melt a dollop of butter in the carafe. Add chopped onions and potato and fry this for half an hour. Pour water into the brewer, the stock cube in the filter thingy and the finely chopped cauliflower into the carafe. Cook this until everything is tender.
Mash everything together (you could use a hand-held blender) until it gets fairly smooth. Add cheese and let it melt in the hot soup for another half an hour. Season with salt and pepper.
It’s nice to serve this tasty soup with garlic bread. Mix butter and garlic together and melt it on the heater. Fry the bread for like fifteen minutes on each side. Turn off your coffee maker.
Serve the soup with bacon on top and together with the garlic bread.

Lots of new readers here, welcome to all of you! Let’s talk more on Twitter - and Instagram as well if you’d like to see some more photos of coffee maker cooking (and especially lots of photos of our cats).
After an incident in Thailand a year ago I can’t eat shrimps or crayfishes. I almost got sick just from the smell of this dish. You can probably guess what happened in Thailand so I won’t go into any details. Dan however (who didn’t share my experience) thought it was delish!
- X crayfish
- X/2 slices bacon
- X pieces of mango
- Y tbsp mayo
- Y tsp mustard
- Y tsp honey
Start your coffee maker. Tear off the crayfish head and wrap the tail with 1/2 slice of bacon, secure with a toothpick. Season with chili. Place it on the heater and coffee maker fry until the bacon gets a nice, golden color. Turn and season again.
Mix the salsa and peel and dice the mango. When the wrapped crayfish is nicely coffee maker cooked add the mango at the end of the toothpick. And sprinkle some more chili! Turn off your coffee maker.
Serve the chili spiced bacon crayfish with salsa. Hopefully you won’t get as sick as I got in Thailand when you are finished eating…
