How to cook Chicken Bruschetta with your coffee maker!

how to cook food with your coffee maker

Time

1,5 hours for 4 bruschettas

Ingredients

  • Chicken filet
  • Bread
  • Green pesto
  • Cocktail tomatoes
  • Basil leaves
  • Red onion
  • Parmesan
  • Olive oil
  • Chili flakes
  • Flaked salt

Instructions

Start your coffee maker. Cut the bread and roast it directly on the heater – approximately 15 minutes on each side. Place them on a dish and pour a little oil on the heater. Let it get really warm and thereafter place the sliced up chicken filets in it. Fry it THOROUGHLY, it can’t be pink at all. It took about 45 minutes when I did it. Turn it every now and then. Season with chili flakes. Turn off your coffee maker.

 

Spread pesto on the bread and place the well done chicken on it. Slice up some onion, add it together with a tomato, a basil leaf and a dash of olive oil. Sprinkle the bruschetta with flaked salt. Maybe some balsamic vinegar as well. Stick a toothpick through the whole thing so it won’t fall.

 

Enjoy!

How to poach an egg with a coffee maker – VIDEO

The coffee maker is also a perfect device to poach your eggs with, I’ll show you that in this YouTube episode of The Coffee Maker Chef. And – FOR THE FIRST TIME IN THE HISTORY OF COFFEE MACHINE CUISINE – I’ll show you the traditional way of cooking your coffee with a coffee maker.

Enjoy!

And, as always, I speak Swedish but it comes with English subtitles.

How to cook a birthday cake for cats – VIDEO!

Haha, this is my favorite video recipe so far. We had so much fun when we filmed it, I almost puked a numerous of times, the poor photographer couldn’t escape the disgusting smell, Zappa was all over the place, Gucci was depressed (but I cheered her up with a party hat on top of her cone of shame) and Iggy almost died (fortunately that was edited).

WHAT A PARTY!

cooking with your coffee maker

Time

  • 3 hours (including cooling)

Ingredients

  • 1 bowl of dry foods
  • 1 pkg. of liver pâté
  • Some sheets of ham
  • Wet food
  • Shrimps
  • 1 egg yolk
  • Cat treats

Instructions

Add the dry food into the carafe and pour water into the brewer. Start your coffee maker and cook it until the dry food loosen up properly. Season with shrimps, stir and drain extra water if needed. Add an egg yolk and stir some more. Turn off your coffee maker.

Happy midsummer!

Haha, I never get tired of this. Last week we went to our cabin again and some friends joined us. I’ve already told you about Zappa and his sock hat and this time it was the same procedure again when we entered the smaller road. He’s like “OPEN THE FREKKIN WINDOW NOOOOOW, HUMAN!” and tries to smash it with his wrinkly head if I won’t open right away.

First I showed our friends in the back seat what it’s like for him without the sock hat. They immediately understood the problem. Then I put the sock hat on and they were amazed and probably thought I’m the smartest crazy cat woman in the world.

Kalle filmed him (and sang a gangster song as well):

Soon (in two hours) we’re off to the cabin again! We’re going to celebrate midsummer – THE best holiday in my opinion. That and crayfish parties. Or all parties really as long as you get to sing schnaps songs and wear hats. But I especially like the Midsummer hats that are made of flowers, leaves and stuff. Even made one to Gucci last year.Swedish midsummerI always forget that this is supposed to be a blog about food and not about cats. Maybe I should post a midsummer recipe as well. Yup, I’ll do that. You know? The most popular dish we Swedes eat on midsummer (well on every holiday, because we eat the same stuff on all holidays) is the soused herring. Hell, that’s disgusting. I remember last midsummer when our guests arrived and brought lots of this shit and I almost puked in front of them by the thought of it. Now that’s a proper welcome, right? I don’t like herring at all any longer and I’ve told you the story before and you can read about it here (beware of disgusting stuff, like puke- and diarrhea disgusting).

If you should try herring, try this type. This I actually loved (but if you read the story you know why I don’t any longer).

Pickled herring with onion

how to cook food with your coffee maker

Time

  • 1 hour + preparations and cooling

Ingredients

  • 1 tin of herring fillets
  • 0.5 dl vinegar
  • 2.5 dl water
  • 2 tsp pimento
  • 2 bay leaves
  • ½ dl sugar
  • 1 onion
  • 1 red onion
  • ½ leek

Instructions

Open the tin and drain the disgusting liquid stuff. Rinse the fillets and put it in a coffee carafe filled with water overnight.

Divide the herring into small pieces the following day and chop up all of the different onions.

Place everything except the herring (and the water) in the coffee carafe and pour the water into the brewer. Start the coffee maker. Let it coffee maker cook for about 30 minutes and then let it cool. Turn off the coffeemaker. Add the herring and pour everything into a fancy jar. It’s an old Swedish tradition as well that you should decorate the jar with some kind of balloon animal.

Serve.

You could put the fillets in other bowls, but this is the coffee machine cuisine, right?

How to cook Flying Jakob with a Coffee Maker – VIDEO

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! 

Time

  • 5 hours

Ingredients

  • 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
  • Peanuts
  • Chili powder
  • Chili Salt
  • Pepper
  • Rice

Instructions

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!

The return of Iggy the Cat

Whoa, some people went all bananas on different sites and forums because of the “How to cook your cat” post. Don’t know why? I can understand that Dan was slightly upset, since Iggy was his favorite cat. But for you other guys, I reckon this shouldn’t be worse than if I slaughtered a pig or a chicken.

Here are some of the comments, I had to censor the first one.

“I just read her blog “coffee machine cuisine” … She killed and cooked her cat…. I can’t find anything in that post that indicates it’s a joke either…. Crazy c*nt.” 

//Heidi Hamilton

This is my favorite.

“You are a cruel, mean and disgusting human who does not deserve the affection of an animal or to be allowed to have pets! I will I hope one day that someone comes up to you and holds you at gun point so you have “scared little eyes” and shoots you to put in a stew. I know you’re probably dans favourite girlfriend but if he’s as heartless as you are “he will get over it””

//G. A. Aka batshit* crazy cat lady

Interesting point there miss G.A. Do you have a recipe of human stew that I can forward to Dan? Maybe he and one of his other girlfriends (that he probably likes slightly less) can have a coffee maker cooked stew feast.

No, this can’t go on. This is supposed to be a feel-god blog, I definitely don’t want to become a stew, and since Dan misses Iggy a lot there is only one right thing to do…

…The Pet Sematary thing.

* I added that.

It’s alive!

OMG it worked! We sacrificed a chicken (that someone else shot) and whoopie doo – Iggy came back from the dead.

cooking with a coffee maker

Here’s the chicken that someone else murdered but that we bought and sacrificed to the other side.

Now the family is all back together again. Well, the best parts of this family that is. Dan’s other girlfriends weren’t invited to the reunion.

My little darling! It’s so nice to eat MEET you again.

cooking with a coffee maker

Zappa was happy to see Iggy again.

On our way back home. Don’t worry, Gucci is sleeping in the yellow bag… OR IS SHE?

Ironically Iggy almost died again just after the last photo was taken. This idiot walked his dog on the cemetery WITHOUT A LEASH (that’s forbidden here). Madness. That disgusting dog tried to attack the cats and I almost sacrificed my life to save them (so we’re like even now, right?).

Dog owners are frekkin crazy people. Ugh. KEEP YOUR DOGS ON A LEASH FFS.

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 cook a birthday cake for your cat with a coffee maker.

Today is Gucci’s birthday! I’m not quite sure how old she is (her pedigree is somewhere at my parents’ place) but I think it’s her sweet 16. For her 15th (?) birthday I made her this birthday cake. I will never do it again because the smell was horrible and I almost threw up a couple of times.

But it looks quite nice, huh? A great tip is to starve your cats for a while before serving the cake. Our cats weren’t hungry when I finally served it so all of it was for nothing.

How to cook sushi with your coffee maker

cooking with your coffee maker

Time

1,5 hour

Ingredients

  • 1 sushi making kit (with rice, rice vinegar, wasabi, soy sauce, ginger, seaweed sheets, bamboo sushi mat, sticks)
  • 200 g salmon
  • 1 cucumber
  • 2 carrots
  • 2 avocados
  • Salt

Instructions

Pour water into the brewer, salt in the filter thingy and the rice into the carafe. Start your coffee maker. Let the rice cook in your coffee maker for about… I don’t know exactly, that depends on what rice you are using. I overcooked my rice. Don’t do that.

Turn off your coffee maker.

Mix the rice vinegar with the rice. Let it cool. Meanwhile shred the vegetables and the salmon into long thin strips.

Take the bamboo sushi mat and place a piece of seaweed on top. Add rice, salmon, maybe some wasabi and vegetables in the middle of the seaweed and roll up the bamboo mat slowly. Remove the roll from the mat and leave it with the joining edges downwards. Don’t place in the fridge because this dries out the rice.

Use a lightly moistened sharp knife to cut the rolls into smaller pieces. Serve with ginger, more wasabi and little bowls of soy sauce.

cooking with your coffee maker

Even though the cats guarded the rice with their lives we completely overcooked it.

Coffee Maker Made Cheese Fondue

Valentine’s day is coming up in a couple of days. I think that cheese fondue is a great recipe for this day, and it’s perfect to cook in a coffee maker.

Here’s how you do it.

coffee machine cuisine

Time

  • 1,5 hours

Ingredients

  • 1 dl white wine
  • 1 small garlic clove
  • 3 dl grated cheese
  • Some parmesan
  • A few drops of lemon juice
  • 1 tsp dijon mustard
  • White pepper
  • Bread
  • Pepperoni
  • Basil leaves
  • (+ whatever you would like to dip in the fondue)

Instructions

Start the coffee maker. Add wine and chopped garlic into the coffee maker can. Heat it for half an hour and add cheese, lemon juice and mustard. Leave it on the heater until the cheese is fully melted. Stir every now and then, it burns quite easily otherwise. Season with white pepper.

Put basil, bread and pepperoni on those fondue thingies that you should put that stuff on (or a fork like we did since we don’t own things like that) and dip it into the melted cheese.

It’s super smart to make fondue in a coffee maker since the food has to be over a heater all the time so it won’t solidify. Just eat it directly from the can, but don’t remember to stir it sometimes (and to turn the cofee maker off when you’ve finished). We also made this with chocolate fondue a while ago and that worked just as well.
