Servings: servings
Instructions
For the Hash
  1. Heat the oil in a large cast iron skillet, when hot, add the hash browns and cook undisturbed for 5-10 minutes, then flip and cook 5 minutes more, until golden and crispy. Add onions and bell pepper and season with salt and pepper as desired and mix together. Cook until onions and bell pepper are tender, about 5 minutes. Then add the garlic and jalapeno and cook until fragrant, 1 minute.
  2. Sprinkle on the cheese and let that melt then mix in well.
  3. Use the back of a spoon and make for nests in the hash brown mixture, and crack an egg into each one and salt and pepper to taste. Cover and cook until the whites are set and yolk is still runny, about 8 minutes.
For the Sausage Gravy
  1. While the eggs are cooking, make the gravy. Cook the sausage in a medium size non stick skillet until browned and cooked through, sprinkle the flour on the cooked sausage, mix and cook one minute, then add the milk and bring to a boil then reduce to heat to a simmer and cook until thickened, about 5 minutes. Season with salt, pepper, and cayenne pepper to taste. Remove from heat.
To Serve
  1. Scoop up some hash with an egg and place on a plate, pour over some gravy, garnish with chopped chives if desired.
Recipe Notes

Over all, low cost.

Ingredients
Servings: servings as a side
Instructions
  1. Chicken can be prepared two ways:
  2. First way: In a medium pot, add the chicken, fill with water and a teaspoon of salt and bring to a boil then reduce to a simmer. Cook for about 15-20 minutes or until cooked through, remove chicken and allow to cool and handle, then dice that and add to a large mixing bowl. Strain the broth and save (refrigerate) for use in another recipe.
  3. Second way: In a medium pot, add the chicken, fill with water and a teaspoon of salt and bring to a boil then reduce to a simmer. Cook for about 15-20 minutes or until cooked through. Remove the pot from heat and let sit until room temp with the chicken in the broth (Juicier chicken). Remove the chicken and dice and add to a large mixing bowl. Strain the broth and save (refrigerate) for use in another recipe.
  4. Dice the potatoes and carrots to the same size and place in a medium sized pot (same pot used for the chicken would be ideal). add enough water to cover the vegetables by an inch, stir in 1 teaspoon of salt. Bring to a boil uncovered and continue cooking for 10-15 minutes or until the vegetables are tender. Drain in a colander and rinse with cold water to stop the cooking process, drain well to remove any water. Add to the mixing bowl with the chicken.
  5. Add the peas, eggs pickles, onion, and dill to the mixing bowl, give it a quick stir to mix everything, then add the mayo, salt, and black pepper and mix that in. For the mayo start out with less than a cup and add as needed to fully coat everything.
  6. Cover and refrigerate for at least two hours before serving. Serve as a side dish, or in my case, this is a light main dish for me. I can see this being a main dish with a fresh cooked cob of corn on the side.
Recipe Notes

The chicken breasts will cost about 35 Baht/500 grams. For 8 servings (as a side), this is about 13 cents per serving.

Variants: Substitute cooked diced ham or kielbasa for the chicken. Add sliced red radish or diced daikon.

  2. Slice the potatoes in half lengthwise, then slice each half into 1/4 inch slices.
  3. Cook the spinach in a saucepan according to package instructions. Drain and squeeze out excess water. If using leaf spinach, lightly chop the spinach after draining and squeezing it dry.
  4. In a large bowl, combine potato slices and olive oil and toss to coat. Add garlic, oregano, basil, and salt and toss to coat.
  5. In prepared casserole dish, coat bottom with 1/3 of the pasta sauce, 1/3 of the potatoes, 1/3 of the spinach, 1/3 of the Parmesan, and 1/3 of the Mozzarella. Repeat layers 2 more times.
  6. Bake uncovered 45 minutes or until potatoes are tender.
  7. Serve, perfect sides would be a green salad and garlic toast.
Recipe Notes

I cannot price this until I get some frozen spinach, but with the cheese, this is probably a fair cost meal. I will update this after I make it.

Ingredients
For the Sour Cream
Servings: servings
Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 200 C.
  2. Make several parallel slits, about 1/2 inch apart, into each potato top, making sure not to slice completely through. Place 3-5 garlic slices between the slits on each potato, use more if you like. I used a slice of garlic in every slit.
  3. Brush each potato, all sides, with olive oil. Place potatoes on a baking sheet lined with foil and sprinkle generously with salt and pepper.
  4. When the potatoes begin to “fan out”, about 15 minutes depending on your oven and the size of the potatoes, it’s time to add bacon. Carefully slip a chunk of bacon into each slit of the potato and return to the oven. Don’t worry if a slit breaks through, the cheese will hold it together later. Lay a piece of bacon over a slit, then use the handle of a spoon and press the bacon into the slit, folding it as you gently press it in the slit.
  5. Once the potatoes and bacon are fully cooked, use fork to test, you can leave them as is, meaning with the garlic, bacon, salt and pepper, they are delicious no matter what way you have them. If that is your choice, pour a little melted butter and chopped parsley over each potato and put into the oven for about 5 more minutes. To give you an idea on the size of these potatoes, they are in a pie dish.
  6. Or top the potatoes with the Cheddar cheese.
  7. Bake until tops are crispy. The baking process total time is about 1 hour. Transfer to a serving dish and top with the sour cream and chives.
For the Sour Cream
  1. Mix all the ingredients for the sour cream together and refrigerate until use.
Recipe Notes

Figure about 90 Baht for the cheese. For 4 servings, this is about 66 cents per serving.

Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 180 C. Get out a square baking dish, 8x8 or 9x9 is fine.
  2. Cut the potatoes into wedge shapes and deep fry until golden brown. Drain on several layers of paper towels.
  3. Chop the bacon and fry in a separate pan until crispy. Drain on paper towels.
  4. Layer half of the potatoes in the square baking dish. Sprinkle half of the Mozzarella cheese over the potatoes. Sprinkle half of the dill over the cheese. Add all of the bacon in a layer on of the dill. Add all of the Cheddar cheese in a layer over the bacon. Add the remaining potato wedges in a layer and sprinkle with some salt to taste. Top with the remaining Mozzarella.
  5. Bake for 20 minutes or until the cheese is melted and just starting to brown. Serve and enjoy.
Recipe Notes

The Mozzarella cheese will cost 140 Baht/200 gram block, the Cheddar cheese, if you buy a 250 gram block and shred 1/4 of that, the cost would be about 45 Baht. The bacon will cost about 75 Baht/100 grams. For 2 servings, this would cost about $3.82. Not cheap but sounds good.
