Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 190 C. Grease a large casserole dish with butter.
  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.

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.

  3. Remove the potatoes from the oven when they are cooked, wear an oven mitt and carefully cut each potato in half lengthwise. Scoop out the insides and place that into a bowl. Stir in the butter, cheese, then mix in the cooked sausage.
  4. Spoon mixture back into the potato halves and make a depression in the center of each one. Crack an egg into each depression.

Low cost. If no baking potatoes are available to you, use regular, large potatoes but scoop out less to make the mashed potatoes, the beauty with regular potatoes, you can eat the whole potato.

  3. Place half of the potatoes in the baking dish; top with half of the sauce. Arrange brat pieces over the sauce. Top with remaining potatoes and sauce.
  4. Cover with foil and bake for 1 to 1 1/2 hours or until bubbly, uncover and bake for 10 minutes or until the top is lightly browned, let rest for 5 minutes, serve.
Recipe Notes

I cannot price this accurately until I get brats again, but I will guess no more that 150 Baht for 8 brats. For 4 servings, this is about $1.10 per serving.
