TM 5Please note that the TM5 mixing bowl has a larger capacity than the TM31 (capacity of 2.2 liters instead of 2.0 liters for TM 31). Recipes for the Thermomix TM5 may not be cooked with a Thermomix TM31 for safety reasons without adjusting the quantities. Risk of scalding by spraying of hot liquids: Do not exceed the maximum filling quantity and observe the filling level markings of the mixing bowl!
1. Add Cheddar cheese to mixing bowl and grate, 8sec/spd8, place in bowl and set aside.
2 Add Gherkins to mixing bowl, 8sec/Spd5

5. Crisp up bacon pieces in fry pan then place on kitchen towelling to absorb excess oil and allow to cool.
