Welcome to Office Cooking!
This is our blog about the wonderful cooking creations we make for our lunch while at work in the IT Office! We got tired of the same old ham and cheese sandwiches and decided to mix it up a little.
We made this blog to share our creations, failures and office cooking masterpieces!
Hopefully you enjoy what we have to share!

I heard about this interesting meal recently, someone described it as “the best meal they ate in India”. That is a massive claim! As someone who has been to India, I found it very hard to believe. It is simply Instant Noodles, Mushrooms and Cheese. It’s is quick and super easy so we decided to give […]
We haven’t done an OfficeCooking post for a while. Someone mentioned getting one done while it was still school holidays. Then Dale saw this ‘creation’ in a vision, we knew we had to cook it. What a vision it turned out to be!
Like a lot of people, I watch a lot of Youtube videos. One day I stumbled across a Munchies episode featuring Alvin Cailan, owner of LA restaurant Eggslut. He was cooking up his ‘Ultimate Egglut Sandwich’. This sandwich looked so so good, we just had to try it for ourselves. Alvin’s recipe calls for fried spam (or pork […]
Everybody loves a burrito! We LOVE bacon and eggs! It was just obvious that we should cook our own, thus the Big Bertha Brekkie Burrito was born! This was our take on the ever popular breakfast burrito; bacon, eggs, cheese, and an assortment of fresh ingredients wrapped and and toasted in some multigrain tortilla bread…my […]
Here is another super easy but delicious office recipe… gourmet nachos with home made guacamole.
BBQ Smokey Dog, this is our variation of an Office Cooking favourite from our local bakery. Some bakeries use hotdogs or regular beef sausages, we have used some tasty double smoked kransky sausages. This recipe will make 4 BBQ Smokey Dogs, enough for 4 people, or 2 very hungry people, or 1 VERY greedy person! Enjoy […]
Onion Bombs!, an explosion of bacon, beef and onion right in your mouth hole!
Today for lunch we made Slow Cooked Pork Ribs & Sweet Potato Mash, this one required a little bit of prep work the night before. Marinating the ribs overnight in sauce, we used this Kansas City Rib Sauce sauce from Derrick Riches over at about.com which has an awesome taste with a nice chilli kick, […]
Well who would of thought we’d get the boss onside. Jas has came on-board with our first desert dish, and what dish it is. Office Coffee Ice-Cream, who would believe you could make ice cream with just 3 ingredients and at work and all in 10 minutes. Well here it is. I should also mention […]
When we saw an image of these pop up on social media last week we instantly knew we had to try them. OfficeCooking.com.au is pleased to show you our Bacon Wrapped Toasted Cheese & Avocado Sandwiches. Possibly not the healthiest thing we have ever cooked in the office but these deserve more than a 5 star rating […]
This is a simple method for some tasty garlic bread! It makes a nice snack for morning tea, or you can have it with some soup for lunch. How ever you decide to serve it up, we can all agree it tastes great! Enjoy our Crunchy Garlic Bread Loaf!
This is the Aussie version of the ‘Toad in a Hole’ (from the UK I believe), here is our Cane Toad in a Hole! This one goes back to the beginning of sandwich press time. About the time of the very first ham and cheese toastee the office nomad found themselves searching for something, something […]
Every IT office runs on the strong and powerful taste of a perfectly brewed cup of coffee. Unfortunately in the hotter months of the year a hot espresso coffee can’t be enjoyed, and a cold drink is much preferred! We tried various methods of brewing and serving, this is our favoured way. Try our simple method for great tasting […]
Today we are cooking Blaiser Potatoes! Get it… like jacket potatoes but with an office twist 😉 We are adding our favourite toppings, but you could add what ever toppings you prefer, we may make some other variations one day and share those with you! Enjoy!
The legacy of our mate Jono (former helpdesk) the good old sandwich press has come into its own here. It was Jono who gave us the inspiration here during our 6 month apprenticeship in Sandwich Press Culinary. One of his favourites was Aussie Cane Toad in the Hole (post to come). Anyway with Jono’s Sandwich […]
Whole Roast Chicken – We recently acquired a Lumina toaster oven to use in our office, up until now we had only used it to heat up some frozen pies and the likes. Nothing too exciting, so we decided to give something more adventurous a go. After some interesting discussion we agreed on cooking a small roast, […]
