Sounds delicious. Smoked sausage is available here, but I would lean towards other sausages for the various flavors. Low number of ingredients as well.

Instructions
  1. Layer the ingredients in the slow cooker starting with the potatoes.
  2. Then add the long beans.
  3. Then add the sausage. Pour the broth over the top. For this dish, I used 240 grams of Italian sausage.
  4. And another 270 grams of Vietnamese sausage, it is just a recipe, not set in stone, feel free to use sausage of your choice.
  5. Cover and cook on Low setting for 6 to 8 hours. Do not remove the cover before 6 hours. When the potatoes are fork tender, you can serve after that or switch to Warm to serve later. Add salt and pepper to taste before serving.
Recipe Notes

Going with my purchase of Cumberland sausage at 178 Baht. For 4 servings, this is about $1.31 per serving.

Variants 1. Use other types of sausage, Cumberland would be a good choice, Italian, Bangers, even Vietnamese sausage would be good in this. 2. Use pork or chicken stock in place of the vegetable stock.

  1. Heat a large non stick pan (I use a pot) with a splash of olive oil, and add the onion and garlic, cook until the onion is turning translucent.
  2. then add the beef, breaking it up with a spatula as it cooks. Drain any fat. To the beef, now add the 1 1/2 cups stock, bouillon cube, salt, pepper, basil, and parsley. Simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. Add the 1/4 cup cold stock to a measuring cup and stir in the cornstarch. Cold makes it easier to mix without lumps. Pour this into hamburger mixture and simmer for about two minutes, stirring often, until thickened.
  4. Serve over mashed potatoes with your choice of sides and enjoy.
Recipe Notes

Figure about 150 Baht for the ground beef. For 4 servings, this is about $1.10 per serving.

Shortcut: Seasoned Salt.

Ingredients
For the Breakfast Sausage
For the Gravy
For the Pizza Dough
To Assemble
Servings: 12 inch breakfast pizza
Instructions
For the Breakfast Sausage
  1. First thing we need to do is make the sausage. Very easy, just mix together all the Breakfast Sausage ingredients in a mixing bowl. Mix well. Cover and refrigerate while you prepare the rest, best to make this and refrigerate overnight to allow the flavors to blend.
  2. Fry the sausage in a non stick pan, breaking it apart with your spatula until browned and cooked through. Remove sausage with a slotted spoon, leaving the fat in the pan. Drain sausage and set aside.
For the Pizza Dough
  1. Preheat your oven to 220 C.
  2. Next, we need to make the pizza dough. This is my thin crust pizza dough, the pre-baking has never failed me a crust fully cooked through.
  3. Add the flour into a mixing bowl. Add the salt and dried Italian seasoning/herbs of your choice (if using) and yeast, whisk to combine.
  4. Make a well in the center of the flour and pour in the water. Use your fingers or a wooden spoon to combine everything together. When it comes together into a cohesive ball, turn it out onto the counter along with any extra flour in the bowl that hasn’t yet gotten worked in.
  5. Knead the dough until all the flour is incorporated and the dough is smooth/elastic to the touch, about five minutes. The dough should still feel moist and just slightly tacky. If it’s sticking to your hands and counter top like bubble gum, work in more flour one tablespoon at a time until it’s smooth and silky.
  6. I use a 13 inch non stick pizza pan, sprinkle some corn meal around on the pan, the place the ball of dough in the center. Use the heels of your hands and working from the middle gently press the dough outward until it’s about 1/4 of an inch thick or less, while rotating the pan. You can also use a mini rolling pin for this part.
  7. Bake the crust for 4 minutes, then rotate the pan 180 degrees and bake for 3 more minutes. Remove pan and set aside.
Let's Make This
  1. Sausage is made, crust is made, let's make the eggs then the gravy and get this pizza baked.
  2. For the gravy, using the Gravy ingredients, Add butter to hot pan and melt together with sausage fat. Whisk together the evaporated (canned) milk and water with the flour. Add to hot fat in skillet. Add salt and pepper to taste. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly until gravy starts to thicken. Add sausage back into gravy; heat until sausage is hot and gravy is thick. You want a thick gravy for this dish, after all, you are making a pizza. Set pan aside.
  3. Now prepare the eggs, crack all the eggs into another non stick pan, season with salt and pepper as desired. Cook and fold to scramble until just set, remove from heat.
  4. Take your pre-baked pizza crust and spread out the gravy evenly. Top with the scrambled eggs, then sprinkle on the shredded cheese, top that with the spring onion.
  5. Place in the oven for 15 to 20 minutes or until the top is nicely melted and just starting to brown up.
  6. Slice, serve, and enjoy.
Recipe Notes

Figure about 50 Baht for the pork, another 100 Baht for the cheese. Figuring 4 servings, this is about $1.10 per serving. I will verify this when I make it.

Recipe Notes

Shortcut: Stove Top Stuffing.

Variants: 1. Use ground pork in place of ground beef. 2. Use loaf pans or a casserole and pour a can of condensed cream of mushroom soup over the top. 3. Shape into meatballs and place in a baking dish, then pour a can of condensed cream of mushroom soup over the top.

Ingredients
For the Cucumber Slaw
For the Chorizo Burgers
Servings: servings
Instructions
For the Cucumber Slaw
  1. Slice the cucumbers and onion as thinly as you can, think mandolin, perfect for this. Add the cucumber and onion slices to a bowl and add the olive oil, vinegar and mix well. Taste and season with salt and pepper as desired.
  2. Cover and place in the fridge for at least 20 minutes to let the flavor develop.
For the Chorizo Burgers
  1. The Spanish chorizo can be bulk or in casings. If bulk, just crumble it apart as fine as you can. If in casings, remove the casings and chop or crumble apart as fine as you can. One thought, if you grind your own beef, simply run the casing version, with the casings removed, through your grinder.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, add the beef, chorizo, onion, and garlic. Mix well but do not over work the meat, over worked ground beef = tough burgers.
  3. Divide the meat into 4, 5, or 6 patties, make a small indent in center of each patty with your thumb, this prevents the burger from going dome shaped or curling.
  4. Heat a thick walled non stick pan and melt the butter. You want the pan hot completely.
  5. Cook in batches if needed. Add patties to the pan and cook 5 minutes on the first side, flip and cook 4 more minutes for medium rare burgers. If you prefer burgers more done than that, just increase the times by a minute or so.
  6. Remove to plates, top each burger with 1/2 tablespoon of mayo and then some of the cucumber slaw. Corn on the cob and potato salad come to mind for great sides.
Recipe Notes

For the beef, about 150 Baht, for the chorizo, I can only price what I have made myself, never store bought for me, so go with about 35 Baht for the pork. For 4 servings, this is about $1.36 per serving.

Shortcut: Spanish Chorizo.

When the oil is hot, add the beef to the pan in batches to brown all sides, not cooking it through just browning it a bit. Place browned beef in your slow cooker.
  2. Once all the beef is browned and in the slow cooker, pour in the stock, diced tomatoes (these can be canned or fresh), Worcestershire sauce, vinegar, and stir, then add the potatoes, carrots, onion, celery, oregano, garlic, and bay leaf.
  3. Stir to mix then cover and set the slow cooker to Low setting and cook for 8 hours.

  5. Serve with biscuits or bread.
Recipe Notes

Figure about 300 Baht for the beef. For 6 servings this is about #1.47 per serving.

Shortcut: Tenderize Beef with Tomatoes.

Variant: 1. Instead of adding potatoes to the stew at the beginning, serve the stew over mashed potatoes. To do this, increase the stock used by a cup to allow a soupier stew that will go well with mashed potatoes.
