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 Cauliflower Soup with your coffee maker

cooking with a coffee maker

Time

  • 4 ½ hours

Ingredients

  • 1 potato
  • 1 small onion
  • ½ cauliflower head
  • 6 dl vegetable broth
  • 100 g Philadelphia cheese
  • Butter
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Bacon
  • Bread
  • Butter
  • Garlic

Instructions

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.

How to bake chrisp bread on your coffee maker

There are always at least three kinds of breads on the swedish christmas table – the wort bread with raisins, the wort bread without raisins and the crisp bread. Ah, well… We eat the crisp bread to almost every meal here in Sweden, but it is a must on the christmas table. I haven’t baked any type of wort bread yet, but this is how you bake crisp bread on your coffee maker.

Since it’s for the christmas table, let’s call them chrisp breads!

coffee machine cuisine

Time

About 1 hour/chrisp bread

Ingredients

  • 2 dl of cornmeal
  • 2 dl of mixed pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds (or whatever seeds you’d like to use)
  • 1/2 dl of canola oil
  • 2 dl of water
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • Flake salt
  • Some more seeds
  • Butter

Instructions

Pour water into the coffee maker brewer, start the coffee maker and mix all the other ingredients into a paste in a bowl. Pour the hot water over the paste and stir.

Place some paste directly on the coffee maker plate, flatten it out and leave it there until it becomes hard and crispy. Turn it over and sprinkle some flaked salt and seeds on it. Oh! Before the bread gets too hard you must also make a hole in the middle of chrisp bread. I don’t know why. I’m sure there is a good reason why it should be a hole in all of the round chrisp breads, but I don’t care so much that I want to check it out.  It was pleasant nonetheless to eat the chrisp bread when it was ready, and it looked good with the hole. Turn off the coffeemaker.

Eat the chrisp breads with lots, and lots of butter on.

I tried to use the meat hammer to make a pattern in the bread (chrisp breads often have patterns). It didn’t work though.
