Instructions
  1. In a large non stick pan on medium heat, brown the ground beef until almost cooked through, chopping it up with the spatula as it cooks. Drain off the fat.
  2. Add the onion, peppers, and garlic and cook until the onions and pepper is softened.
  3. Add the Worcestershire, beef broth, and sprinkle in the flour and stir. Cook to thicken the mixture.
  4. When thickened, stir in your favorite cheese.
  5. Serve on toasted rolls or bread of your choice.
Recipe Notes

Figure about 250 Baht for the beef. When I get some Provolone again I will be able to price this per serving. For now I will say fair cost.

This is an Arabic dish in origin, can be found in many cultures there including Lebanon and Syria. Sounds like a great dish for sure! On my to cook list. I am going to base this on a 8x8 baking dish for 4 servings. If you are looking to make a larger batch, think 7x11 or 9x13 dish.

  4. If you want to add options, such as mushrooms or bell peppers, or vegetables of your choice (sliced thin), in layers on top of the onion layer. Lastly, place a layer of tomato, always the top layer, as the juices run run down through the casserole.
  5. Pour in a cup of beef stock, or just water, season with salt and pepper to your liking, cover with foil and bake for 1 hour.
  6. Serve.
Recipe Notes

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

Instructions
  1. Layer the potatoes on the bottom first.
  2. Then add the sausage. I used Cumberland sausage for this.
  3. Then the garlic. If using yellow squash (I did not), then layer that on top of the garlic.
  4. Then add the chopped bell peppers, I used 1 red, 1 green, and 1 yellow. Pour the stock over the top.
  5. Cover and cook on Low setting for 5 to 7 hours, do not open the cover until the 5 hour mark, if the potatoes are fork tender, it is ready to be served or just set to Warm setting until ready. Salt and pepper to taste just before serving. This was perfect at the 5 hour mark using 1/4 inch thick potatoes.
Recipe Notes

I used 500 grams of Cumberland sausage that cost 178 Baht. For 6 servings, this is about 88 cents per serving.

Variants: 1. Use chopped chicken, turkey, Cumberland sausage, or shrimp, or a combination. 2. Use pork stock in place of chicken stock.

  1. Prepare your grill for medium heat.
  2. Form sausage into four 1/2 inch thick patties. Grill patties, moving and flipping as necessary, until completely cooked through, about 5 minutes per side.
  3. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add peppers and onions and cook, stirring often, until wilted and soft, about 8 to 10 minutes. Add the vinegar and honey and cook, stirring until slightly thickened, about 2 minutes, season with salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Just before the peppers and onion is done, split and grill the rolls.
  5. Serve patties on the grilled rolls, top with peppers and onion.
Recipe Notes

I can only estimate the pork sausage if made with the shortcut using ground pork, it is easier than you think, this would be about 75 Baht/750 grams. For 4 servings, this is about 55 cents per serving.

Instructions
  1. Preheat your broiler. In a large oven proof skillet (cast iron would be ideal), heat 1 tablespoon of the oil. Cook the sausage over high heat, breaking it apart with your spatula into 1 inch pieces or so, until browned, about 5 minutes. Remove to a plate.
  2. To the same pan, add the remaining oil. Cook the onion and peppers over medium heat, scrapping up any brown bits from the bottom of the pan, until very soft and caramelized, about 10 minutes.
  3. While the onion and peppers are cooking, in a large mixing bowl, beat the eggs with salt and pepper to your liking until the yolk and whites are very well combined.
  4. Add the sausage back to the pan, season with salt and pepper to your liking and spread out in an even layer. Reduce the heat to low and pour the eggs over the sausage and vegetables, making sure the pan is evenly coated with eggs.
  5. Cook until the sides are set and there’s just a shallow layer of uncooked eggs on the top, 5 minutes. Sprinkle the mozzarella and oregano over the top, if using, and transfer the pan to the broiler. Cook for 2 minutes, until the top is cooked and beginning to lightly brown.
  6. Remove from the oven and allow the frittata to sit in the pan for 5 minutes before slicing. Cut into wedges and serve alongside a simple salad as breakfast, lunch, or dinner.
Recipe Notes

Low cost, if making the sausage from ground chicken, even less cost.

Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 200 C (390 F). Get out a 9x13 baking dish.
  2. Heat a skillet with a splash of olive oil and add the cubed chicken, season with salt and pepper as desired.
  3. Cook until just cooked through for tender chicken, drain any oil, I use a colander for this and just let the chicken sit in the colander until it is needed.
  4. Cut bell peppers in half and remove the stem and seeds. Place in a 9x13 baking dish, fit them in there tight.
  5. In a large bowl, combine 2 cups Mozzarella, Parmesan, garlic, pasta sauce, parsley, and red pepper flakes, and season with salt and pepper to your liking. Stir until combined, then gently fold in chicken.
  6. Spoon chicken mixture into halved bell peppers and sprinkle with remaining 1 cup Mozzarella cheese.
  7. Pour chicken broth into baking dish to help the peppers steam and cover the dish with foil.
  8. Bake until peppers are tender, about 1 hour. Uncover and broil 2 minutes.
  9. Garnish with fresh chopped parsley and Parmesan cheese, serve.
Recipe Notes

Chicken will cost about 75 Baht/kilo, that should be 5-6 breasts, get a kilo and use the rest in another recipe. The Mozzarella will cost about 280 Baht for two 200 gram blocks. For 4 servings, this is about $2.60 per serving.

  1. Reserve some of the diced bell peppers to sprinkle on top for garnish
  2. Saute peppers, onions, and garlic in a splash of olive oil over medium heat in a large skillet.
  3. Once the peppers and onions have started to soften, increase heat to medium high and add the ground beef to the pan, season with salt and pepper.
  4. Once the ground beef is cooked through, drain any excess fat, then add the chicken broth, can of whole tomatoes (chopped), tomato sauce, and soy sauce.
  5. Bring the tomato mixture up to a simmer, then stir in one cup of uncooked extra long grain rice. Cover the pan with a lid and reduce the heat down to low. Let mixture cook 20-30 minutes, or until rice is tender.
  6. At the 20 minute mark, start stirring the pan occasionally so the rice does not stick to the bottom of the pan. One rice is tender, sprinkle the cheese on top. Cover the pan with the lid to let the cheese melt.
  7. Garnish with fresh diced bell peppers and green onions.
Recipe Notes

The beef would cost about 100 Baht/500 grams. For 4 servings, this is about 75 cents per serving.

  1. Boil the potatoes until just for tender. Remove from the water and let cool so you can handle them. Once they have cooled a little, dice them into large pieces.
  2. Cook the bacon, ham, and sausage separately then remove and set aside. You can use a bit of each, or just one or two, up to you.
  3. In the same pan, heat it up with some bacon fat, olive oil, and butter, add the bell peppers, onion, season with salt, pepper, thyme, and sage.
  4. Cook until the peppers are tender, then add in the potatoes and cooked meat, mix and heat through.
  5. While cooking the peppers are cooking, preheat your oven to 180 C (350 F), put your large cast iron pan in the oven while it heats. If no cast iron pan, or you oven will not support a cast iron pan, use a baking dish. I used a baking dish.
  6. Crack the eggs into a bowl and beat slightly, then add the chopped spring onion and cheese, amount is up to you. Add this to the skillet with the potatoes and give a quick stir, remove the cast iron pan (baking dish) from the oven and pour this mixture into the pan and bake for 15-20 minutes until the eggs are set. Serve.
Recipe Notes

No cost given here, cost would be based on what you use, shortcuts will save you money as well. This would be an excellent dish to prepare for a late breakfast, brunch, as I do, a main dish for dinner.

This can range from low cost to high cost depending on what you want to use. I will say this a fair value dish as average.

Shortcuts: Sausage, Breakfast Sausage.

I was inspired to write this recipe from two good friends. There is no quantities listed, this is make what you have from leftovers, and the possibilities are endless. I made a version of this on 24 Sep 2016 using leftover Creamed Beef SOS and some shredded Cheddar cheese. The photo is what I made and topped with a fried egg on top (unwritten rule for SOS). The ingredients are simple, bell peppers of your choice, red, yellow, or green, shredded cheese if you like, or ketchup if you prefer that, and of course leftovers.

Instructions
  1. First thing you need to do is determine how many peppers you based on your leftovers available. You can use anything, for some ideas, leftover SOS, Chili, Chili Mac, Chili and Rice, Stew, Sausage gravy, any casserole, you get the idea.
  2. Preheat your oven to 180 C. Get out a 9x13 baking dish or my favorite to use is bread pans, 2 peppers each.
  3. Cut the tops off the peppers, discard the stem section and dice the tops. You can do two things with the diced pepper tops, 1. you can add to your leftovers and they go in the peppers, or 2. save for an omelette for another day. Once the tops are cut off, remove the seeds and membranes inside. Don't worry if the pepper will not sit upright.
  4. Now stuffing the pepper, you have some choices, if you like cheese, you can fill each pepper with leftovers half full, add some shredded cheese of your choice, fill the pepper to the top and add more cheese on the top. If you prefer just ketchup which is equally as good, just fill each pepper and spread some ketchup on the top.
  5. Now for the peppers that do not want to stand up, and some leftovers to the bottom of the baking dish or bread pans and put the peppers in that, now you have the peppers and some baked leftovers to go on the side with the peppers.
  6. Bake for 30 minutes, you want the peppers to be tender and the top to be browned up a bit. Serve as is or as I prefer, cut a pepper in half and top with a fried egg.
  7. This is a yellow bell pepper that was stuffed with Creamed Beef SOS and topped with a fried egg.
Recipe Notes

No pricing for this, just the cost of the peppers and cheese, this is a Leftover meal since you have paid for the main meal already. If you went with ketchup instead of cheese, easily done, this is a very low cost way to use up leftovers.

This sounds interesting, and is wide open to what you want to fill the peppers with, but the anchovies seem to be the key ingredient here. This is a bit of a rewrite from what I found originally. When I make this, I will edit the recipe even further on my findings. On my to cook list.

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 180 C, place peppers in a lightly greased with butter baking dish; set aside.
  2. Heat about a tablespoon of the reserved anchovy oil in a large heavy skillet over low heat. Saute onion until translucent, then stir in garlic. Let garlic cook for 2 minutes, then stir in the rice and chicken. Add the anchovies, olives, 1 tablespoon of the reserved anchovy olive oil, black pepper and red pepper. Mix until well blended, removed from heat.
  3. Mound pepper halves with stuffing. Surround peppers with tomato sauce and a small amount of water. Cover with foil.
  4. Bake 45 to 60 minutes, or until peppers are tender. Uncover for the last 15 minutes of baking, and baste occasionally with the sauce. Serve by spooning some sauce on pasta and topping with a pepper half.
Recipe Notes

Two cups of cooked chicken is low cost, maybe about 30 Baht, at the most. The anchovies however, will run about 125 Baht per tin. Use the shortcut to make the tomato sauce from tomato paste for additional savings. For 8 servings, this is about 60 cents per serving, great value.
