Coffee for Coffee Day

Hi Guys, this has to be one of my favorites days.  Today is coffee day and I love coffee.  The smell and flavor are just so amazing in the house.

This is a repost from some months back, but being that today is coffee day I have to share this again.  I hope you try and enjoy my recipe.

This is enough coffee for a few days which made it very easy for me in the morning before work.  Just pour and go.

Coffee Coco Goodness

Ingredients:

6 cups coffee

3 tbsp. sugar

1 tbsp.  Coco powder

1 large banana

½ cup coconut milk

 

This is made in a batch so I don’t have to make coffee for a couple of days.  You can reduce the measurements to make it a signal cup.

Brew the coffee in coffee pot and once done add in the sugar and coconut milk.  Let the coffee cool for a few minutes.  I put mine in the fridge for about 15 minutes.

Once coffee is cool enough to work with, add about half to blender, then the banana, coco and blend until well incorporated.  Repeat the step until all the coffee has been blended.

Serve over ice and enjoy.

Steps:

Put ground chicken in medium size bowl and add in the garlic powder, onion powder, chicken seasoning and salt and pepper to taste.  Then give the chicken a good mix to incorporate the seasonings well.

Start forming the ground chicken into patties then set them aside on a plate.  Continue making the chicken patties until all the chicken is gone. (The size is up to you.  I was able to get 5 good-sized burgers.)

On medium heat using a grill pan sprayed with non-stick spray add in the chicken patties but don’t over crowd the pan.  Cook on each side for about 4 to 5 minutes just enough to get grill marks.  Then turn them over and repeat.  These burgers will finish cooking in oven.

Once all the chicken burgers are done place them on an aluminum lined sheet pan with sprayed with non-stick spray.   Layer each chicken burger with a slice of ham and then a slice of cheese.   (You can put how many slices you want of cheese and ham)

Then place in a 350 degree oven for about 5 to 10 minutes just enough for cheese to melt.  (This will also finish cooking the patties) Remove from oven and let stand for about 3 minutes to cool.
