What to Make in Your Coffee Maker (Other Than Coffee)

Poached Scrambled Eggs with Goat Cheese Sauce

It's the night before Thanksgiving. You've got stock simmering and potatoes boiling, soup is coming along and someone is sautéing vegetables for stuffing. You desperately want to whip up a single serving of ginger-and-soy poached salmon with couscous and steamed vegetables, but every burner on the stove is in use. Enter the coffee maker, says NPR, which has published a potentially handy (if you're ever going to find yourself with a burning desire to cook small amounts of food when a stove is unavailable) guide to poaching, steaming and perhaps even griddling (this one sounds dubious) with the appliance. In all seriousness, though, this does seem like a plausible way produce a healthy, cheap dinner for one in a hotel room, or if the gas goes out. Here, several F&W recipes that may be suitable for coffee maker adaptation. They will require adjustments, and we won't venture to guess what precisely they might be, but the flavor combinations will all hold up. Attempt this maneuver at your own risk—and please tell us how it goes.
