Questions? Technical Issues? The Survival Guide / Eggs
« on: December 02, 2012, 01:37:23 pm »
I am hosting a Christmas Breakfast for friends and I am trying to work out the best way to cook eggs in the thermomix.  The only problem is that I also want to make hollandaise sauce in the thermomix.    Has anyone successfully cooked eggs in bulk?  I would ideally like the steamed/poached eggs, but I love the slow cooked ones too, I just don't know how I could do the hollandaise as well.

Anyone got any ideas?

I have this dip on my list to make for a family 21st next week.  Would it be better to roast the capsicum first?  Or is the flavour nice using raw?

Also I need double the recipe, so can I just do this in one batch?

I am also making French Onion Dip from Judydawn and Beetroot, Parmesan and Cashew Dip - but I have made both of these before and they taste excellent.

Questions? Technical Issues? The Survival Guide / Mousse problem
« on: January 06, 2012, 09:30:34 am »
I have had my second lot of thermomix chocolate mousse not set properly.

This time I used the recipe from My Way of Cooking.  The chocolate mix tasted really nice, and I cleaned and thoroughly dired the bowl before starting the eggs whites.  In the recipe you add a pinch of salt to the eggs whites while whipping with the butterfly for 5 mins on speed 3.

The egg whites were very well whipped, I actually suspect too whipped - is that possible?  When I tried to fold them into the chocolate mixture, there were little bit so of white flecks all through the mousse.  It took me ages to try and mix it in, which I know knocked all of the air out of the egg whites.

Does anyone have any idea what I did wrong?  It tasted OK, but was quite thick and not properly set.

Hi everyone

My name is Tamara and I have had my Thermomix for just over 2 months now.  I have been reading the recipes on the forum since I first ordered my Thermomix.  I am a married mum of 2 aged nearly 6 and 3, and I work part time.

Some of the things I have made include butter, jam, mayonnaise, mashed potato, beef strog, spag carbonara, custard, beetroot salad, playdough, chilli mussels, hummus, roast capsicum dip, pumpkin & cinnamon bread, steamed sausages, choc chip biscuits, gingerbread with honey.

I have been having a problem with getting drinks to the correct consistency and taste, but this weekend I finally made a recipe that I could get my family to drink - a a breakfast smoothie.

Thanks for such a great forum.
