This would be a leftover meal for sure to use up pulled pork and any roasted green chilies. Since this is a thicker sandwich, key is to cook slower to keep the bread from over toasting, unless you have heated up the pulled pork to pipping hot just prior to making the sandwich.

This is a leftover meal, meaning leftover chicken hearts, livers, potatoes, and any sides from other meals. Low cost and cleans out the fridge or freezer. My wife makes several Thai dishes from chicken hearts and livers, she was kind enough to leave me a few to make a leftover dish, and I had the boiled potatoes and carrot on hand as well, leftover from a previous meal.

Low cost as everything was bought for other dishes.

Instructions
  1. Cook the bacon in a pan until crispy, remove from the pan leaving the fat in the pan.
  2. Same pan, add the onion and garlic and cook in the bacon fat until translucent, about 1 minute. Add the cooked white rice, bacon and chopped spring onion (reserve a tablespoon of spring onion and bacon for garnish). Mix together, then add the butter, soy sauce, salt and pepper to taste. Mix together, then set aside.
  3. Mix eggs and milk together in a small bowl. Heat another pan with a splash of oil. Add the egg mix to pan. Sprinkle mozzarella on top and cover with a lid until cheese is melted and the flat omelet is cooked through.
  4. Place the fried rice on a plate, and add the egg omelet on top of the rice. Garnish with the reserved spring onion and bacon. Dig in and enjoy.
Recipe Notes

With the cheese, this is about $1 per serving, without cheese, much lower cost.

Variants: Replace the omelet with two sunny side up eggs, add chopped bell pepper, use ground beef, pork, chicken, or even breakfast sausage in place of the bacon, you get the idea.

Ingredients
Servings: bombs
Instructions
  1. The original recipe stated 'chunks' of Cheddar cheese, I think a safe bet would be to use a block of Cheddar and cut it into 3/4 inch cubes.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the mashed potatoes, egg, and salt and pepper. In a shallow bowl, add the bread crumbs.
  3. Grab a small scoop of mashed potatoes and gently form that around a cube of Cheddar.
  4. Roll the mashed potato ball in the bread crumbs to evenly coat it, then wrap a slice of bacon around the ball and fasten with a toothpick or wooden skewer.
  5. Heat a deep heavy skillet with 2 inches of oil to near 180 C but not smoking. Fry the bombs in the hot oil until golden brown brown, drain on paper towels and allow to cool for several minutes.
  6. Serve with sour cream or dipping sauces of your choice.
Recipe Notes

Low cost. Once I make these I will figure an accurate amount.

Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 180 C and bring a pot of water to a boil. Cook the pasta in the boiling water until just tender, drain and stir in the butter to prevent the pasta from sticking together. Cook and crumble the bacon.
  2. Reheat mashed potatoes in your microwave or on the stove top. If potatoes are dry, add a little milk. Transfer to a large bowl for mixing. Fold in the Parmesan cheese, bacon, and 1 cup of Cheddar cheese and stir to combine.
  3. Gently fold in noodles until just incorporated then pour mixture into a greased 9x9 baking dish and top with remaining Cheddar cheese.
  4. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until cheese topping is bubbling and golden brown. Remove from oven and sprinkle with green onions.
Recipe Notes

The bacon and cheese would be the only thing expensive here. Figure maybe two 200 gram packs for 260 Baht, and for the Cheddar cheese, 1 block of 250 grams is 180 Baht, and the Parmesan about 200 Baht. For 6 servings, this is about $3.14 per serving, costly for a leftover meal but does sound good for a once in a while dish.

Just as the name states, this is a pineapple, filled with pulled pork and BBQ sauce, wrapped in bacon, and grilled. No quantities are given except you do need one whole pineapple to start with. You can make this with shredded chicken and BBQ sauce as well. I list this in the Leftover section as well since there is no need to make pulled pork just for this, a pineapple is not that big, but also consider friends and family, you may want to start with 2 pineapples.

Instructions
  1. Light your grill, think charcoal and get an even bed of coals going. Move the coals or lift the grate to prevent burning the bacon, no need to cook the bacon like in a frying pan.
  2. Cut the top off the pineapple, peel then slice in half lengthwise. Remove the core. With the pineapple sides lying on their sides, fill one piece, heaping with either pulled pork and BBQ sauce or pulled chicken and BBQ sauce, place the other pineapple piece on top and secure the two together with skewers or kitchen twine, then wrap with bacon, amount is up to you.
  3. Place this on your heated grill and cover, turn the pineapple occasionally to cook all the bacon but do not burn it. When the bacon is done, set the pineapple on a platter and slice and let people dig in. Serve with your favorite BBQ sides such as corn on the cob, potato salad, etc.
Recipe Notes

No pricing for this but I will list this is low cost since you would likely use leftovers to make this.
