These sound really good, on my to cook list. I have rewrote this to use a bread machine for the mixing and kneeding. This recipe involves a bread machine, some sauteing, and the rolls will be baked in your oven.

For the Filling
Servings: rolls
Instructions
  1. Place the Roll ingredients into your bread machine in the order listed, set the bread machine to Dough setting and let it run through the cycle.
  2. While the dough is getting worked over by the bread machine, heat a pan on medium heat with a splash of olive oil. When the pan is hot, add the mushrooms and about 1/3 of the garlic. Saute for about 10 minutes to evaporate the moisture released and to brown them up a bit.
  3. Remove the mushrooms to a mixing bowl and mix in the remaining garlic. Let this sit to cool. When the mushrooms are cooled, mix in the parsley, butter, and season to taste with salt and pepper.
  4. When the dough cycle is complete, turn out the dough to a flowered surface and punch it down to release any air. Flour a rolling pin and roll out the dough to about 12 inches (30 cm) by 4 inches (10 cm), smallest side towards you. Trim the edges to make it roughly straight lines, not looking for perfection here, just straighten up shorter ends.
  5. Take the mushroom mixture and spread onto to the dough. cut the dough horizontally into 10 strips (you are going to make short strips, not long ones). Each strip should be about 3/4 to 1 inch wide (2-3 cm).
  6. Roll each strip and place on its side in a baking dish.
  7. Cover the dish with a towel and let it proof for about 20 minutes. Preheat your oven to 200 C (400 F).
  8. Remove the towel and bake for 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and with a brush, use the butter in the bottom of the pan and brush the tops of the rolls. If no butter is left, just melt 1-2 tablespoons and use that.
  9. Serve as a snack or a side.

This is from a good American friend, Brian, who lives in northeastern Thailand, and he makes these often. Brian's words "Being that I live in Thailand, in a place that does not have a bakery around the corner, making my own hamburger buns allows me to enjoy a burger with a proper bun." And Brian is very correct, want a proper bun for a burger here, you have to make it yourself. I know Brian well, if he provides a recipe or shortcut to my site, he makes it often.

Ingredients
For the Buns
For the Tops
Servings: buns
Instructions
  1. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the yeast and 1/2 cup of the flour. Add the luke warm water and mix together. Let this set for 10-15 minutes or until the mixture is foamy and bubbly.
  2. To the flour mixture, add the egg, butter, sugar, salt, and whisk together until well combined.
  3. Add 2 1/2 cups of the flour. IF using a standup mixer, use the dough hook and kneed for 6-8 minutes, add flour as needed until the dough comes together and has come free of the sides of the bowl.
  4. IF mixing by hand, mix in the bowl until the dough comes together, adding flour as needed until the dough comes free from the sides of the bowl, turn out dough on a clean surface and kneed with hands for about 10 minutes, use flour as needed until the dough is tacky but comes free of the work surface.
  5. Oil a large bowl (large enough to allow the dough to double in size), and place the kneeded dough inside in the bowl, cover the bowl with a towel and set aside for about 2 hours to rise and double in size.
  6. Punch down the down and remove the dough from the bowl to a lightly floured work surface. Shape the dough into a rectangle or circle and cut into 8 equal size pieces. A pastry cutter works well, and a digital scale is a bonus to ensure you get equal sizes. Line a baking sheet with parchment or lightly flour just the sheet.
  7. Using floured hands, form each dough piece into a ball, then take each ball and form into a disk about 1/2 inch thick, place each disk on the baking sheet evenly spaced.
  8. Lightly flour the tops of the disks and cover with a towel. Let rise for an hour or until doubled in size.
  9. About 20 minutes before buns have risen, preheat your oven to 190 C (375 F).
  10. Whisk together the egg and milk. Remove the towel from the rolls and using a pastry brush, lightly coat the top of each bun. Sprinkle with sesame seeds if desired.
  11. Bake for 15 to 17 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from the oven and place buns on a rack to cool.
  12. Enjoy!

Ingredients
Servings: servings
Instructions
  1. In a large bowl, add the warm water and sugar and stir to dissolve the sugar, then sprinkle in the yeast and stir in until that is dissolved. Let this stand for 5 minutes.
  2. Mix together the flour and salt then mix in the oil. When 5 minutes have passed, add the flour mixture to the yeast mixture and stir to form a soft dough. Turn out dough onto a floured work surface and kneed for about 5 minutes until dough is soft and elastic.
  3. Shape dough into a ball and place on a lightly oiled baking sheet, flatten lightly. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise in a warm place for 20 minutes.
  4. While the dough is rising, cook the ground beef in a non stick skillet and break it up as it cooks, season with salt pepper as desired. Drain then add the pasta sauce to the ground beef and mix together.
  5. Heat your oven to 250 C. Divide the dough into 4 equal parts, pat each one into about a 7 inch circle. Should be able to put 2 on each baking sheet.
  6. Top each pizza with 1/4 of the meat sauce, then 1/4 of the Mozzarella. Bake for about 18 to 20 minutes or until the cheese is melted and the crust is golden brown. Remove from oven, sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
  7. Serve.
Recipe Notes

Figure about 170 Baht for the Mozzarella cheese, the beef about 50 Baht for 250 grams. For 6 servings, this is about $1.08 per serving, depending on the toppings you wish to add, this will increase the cost per serving.

Variants: 1. Add toppings of your choice, such as sliced bell pepper, onion, cooked bacon, cooked Italian sausage, chopped spring onion, slice green olives, pepperoni, etc. 2. Change the Mozzarella to a different cheese, like a 4 blend cheese.

This is a Macedonian dish. This comes from two friends, and there is two variants to it. This makes 8 servings so you may want to cut back on this to test it out. It does sound very good! On my to cook list. Prep and cook times are approximate.

Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 190 C.
  2. In a very large mixing bowl, add the flour, oil, milk, water, salt, sugar, and the yeast, mix and then knead.
  3. The dough needs to be soft to the touch. Quickly cut this into 8 pieces, shape each piece into a ball then flatten each ball and make a well in the center, as you will have to put cheese and an egg in there.
  4. Place each piece in a large baking dish, then crumble in the feta cheese to your desired amount, and crack an egg on top.
  5. Place in the oven and bake until golden brown on the bread, such as this photo shows.
Alternate Method
  1. Use pizza dough of your choice and follow the same steps, make a well in the center, add the cheese and egg, and bake.
  2. Serve as a breakfast or I would even serve as a light dinner.

What is a Grandma Style Pie, anyways? Fair enough question, a Sicilian pie and a Grandma Pie are both stretched in a square/rectangular sheet pan with olive oil. Grandma pies are proofed (allowed to rise) for a shorter time than Sicilian pies. Grandma pies are thinner than Sicilian pies. This makes enough dough to cover one 18x13 inch rimmed baking sheet.

Sourdough starter is a very old technique to keep ready to use dough, breads and pancakes come to mind. The starter improves with age, the longer you keep it, the better the flavor will improve. I remember my Mom had starter in the fridge for years, and I remember the bread she made from it, delicious! Think of starter as a pet you keep in the fridge as this does require care, there is a few rules to follow as well. Now for folks in the far north, this will be straight forward to make in the cooler months you have up there, for everyone else, you may need to use an air conditioned room to get the starter going, meaning to ferment. The basic rule I have seen is you need a place that is lower than 31 C (88 F), anything over that temp and the starter may fail to ferment. Yeast is used to kick start this initially, naturally occurring yeast will do the rest, it just needs to have flour and water on a regular basis.

Ingredients
Servings: starter
Instructions
  1. In a large glass or plastic bowl, mix together the yeast, flour, and water, cover with a towel and leave at room temperature to ferment for 4 to 8 days. Each day, you are going to FEED it, add a 1/4 cup of flour and a 1/4 cup of water, mix that in. If your bowl is not that large, set it on a cookie sheet in case the dough over flows the bowl.
  2. Once it is bubbly and has a pleasant sour smell, it is ready to use, or to refrigerate for use later. Once your starter is made, it will live primarily in the fridge but needs some feeding, you can do this once a week. Feeding is just that, first you remove 1/4 cup of starter and discard or use, THEN you are going to add just a little bit to the mixture to keep the fermentation active. For feeding, if you removed 1/4 cup, then add 1/4 cup of flour and 1/4 cup of water to the mix, stir that in and let it sit at room temp for a few hours, then you can return it to the fridge. A liquid will appear, it is alcohol, just stir that back into the mix. Only need to feed it once a week.
  3. When you use starter to bake, always replace with equal amounts of a flour and water mixture. So, if you remove 1 cup starter, replace with 1 cup water and 1 cup flour. Mix well and leave out on the counter at room temp until bubbly again, then refrigerate. Most recipes will state if the starter has to be room temp or from the fridge, if room temp, then take out the starter the night before and just let it set on your counter over night.
  4. IMPORTANT: when you make the starter initially, or anytime after that, if the mixture discolors to pink or orange, or any odd color, discard the mixture.
