Reconnect broken wire to nichrome plate on toaster

Testo:

Hey,

so unfortunately this morning my toaster Braun HT 550 gave up on me.  The toaster lever just did not stay down anymore. So I disassembled the toaster and figured the issue was due to  crumbs on the mechanical contact  switch that closes as the lever gets pulled down.

I was so happy to see that the toaster worked again after removing those crumbs.  Next I thought "well, now that I'm on it, let's just clean it a bit more thoroughly.  During this, I unfortunately broke a contact from a copper wire to the rear side of one mica/nichrome plate.

At first I thought  "well, let's just solder it, hopefully it won't get too hot". After testing I realised how wrong I was: the part get's hot and desolders itself pretty quickly. Also, it was indeed very hard to get a proper solder joint.

Previously, the contact was made using a cable lug and some sort of bolt through the mica-plate. The cable seems to be very brittle and mantled in some kind of ceramic?

Any ideas how to get the  wire contact back on that plate? Any advice is appreciated!
