I made these last night, have not had one in 12 years or so, true comfort food. Bologna is here, mainly just eaten as a snack item straight from the fridge. My wife very much enjoyed these. I did not make anything that is not here, just prepared it in a way the Thais are not accustomed to, the family really likes it when I use common items to make a "new" dish they have not had before. This is a nothing more than a guide, not a recipe. Keep in mind, Thai bologna is smaller diameter than in the US.

Ingredients
Servings: servings
Instructions
  1. In a large pot, add the chicken and cover with water, this can be a whole chicken, 3-4 breasts, or 3-4 quarters (separated), simmer until tender and cooked through, you are making a broth.
  2. Remove from heat and set aside to let cool to room temperature (makes for juicer chicken). Remove the chicken to a cutting board. Strain the broth and return to the pot. Debone and chop the chicken.
  3. Preheat your oven to 200 C (400 F) and get out a large baking dish, 9x13 should be perfect.
  4. Add water as needed to the pot in order to boil your pasta. Bring the pot of broth to a boil, and cook your pasta until just tender, drain pasta and return pasta to the pot.
  5. To the pasta, add the cheese, chopped tomatoes, chicken, soup, and season with salt, pepper, and onion powder to your liking, and mix together until the cheese is melted in. If the mixture is too thick, add some reserved tomato juice or water.
  6. Pour mixture into your baking dish and bake for 15 minutes, done,
  7. Serve, and of course, enjoy 🙂
Recipe Notes

I will price this when I get some chicken, overall I will say low cost.

Variants: 1. Skip the tomatoes and go with another can of cream of chicken soup. 2. Use cream of mushroom soup instead of cream of chicken soup. 3. No need to bake, just serve after cheese is melted in on the stove top. 4. A diced bell pepper or two would be perfect in this. 5. Buy a rotisserie chicken and use that and make the stock from cube or powder to cook the pasta in.

  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.

  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.

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.

I don't know why I thought of this last night, I must have been chatting with some of my Navy friends. For anyone that has been in South Korea, in the bar districts when the Navy visited, there was a street vendor with a cart, they made and sold Ham-O, Egg-O, Cheese-O sandwiches. This is a basic sandwich, and they made bank with these! These were made when you ordered, wrapped in paper and placed in a bag. I do not remember how much these were exactly, maybe $1 each, but they were inexpensive to say the least.

  1. Keep in mind this was done on a large griddle, the woman running the cart was probably making up to 4 of these at a time.
  2. Fry the ham, while the ham is cooking, fry an egg hard, breaking the yolk, flipping it once.
  3. Spread mayo on the bottom bun, add the fried ham slice on the bottom bun, top with the fried egg, top with a slice of cheese, spread mayo on the inside of the top bun and place that on top and place that on top. As simple as that.
Recipe Notes

Low cost.

Have enjoyed these many times in South Korea.

In Vietnamese, banh mi means bread, so the translation would be sausage sandwich. What makes this unique is what is added to the sandwich such as the pickled carrot and radish. I made these on 21 Nov 2017, excellent flavor, I really like the addition of the pickled carrot and radish. Cha Lua is a fully cooked sausage that is refrigerated when you buy them, so they can be eaten as is right from the fridge. Link to the shortcut is listed in the Recipe Notes section.

  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.

Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 180 C. Lightly grease a baking sheet with butter.
  2. Lightly flour your work surface. Unroll one can of crescent rolls on your work surface (if using the shortcut, roll out one half). Using your hands, press the seams together and lightly press and stretch a little into a nice rectangle.
  3. Add a layer of cheese, can be sliced or shredded, then then add your layer of cooked bacon. Unroll the remaining can of crescent rolls on top & press all the seems together both on top and all around the edges.
  4. Using a pizza cutter or a knife slice into squares. Place the entire thing on your baking sheet using a large spatula, working in batches. Lay all the squares right beside each other, just as they were before you sliced it. You want all the cut seams to be touching so that your cheese doesn’t leak out.
  5. Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until the top of the crescent rolls are lightly browned. Remove from the oven ans cool on a wire rack for 3-5 minutes before digging in. The crescent squares will pull right apart. Serve and enjoy!
Recipe Notes

I cannot price this until I find out how many servings this will make, for now I will say this is a fair value dish based on just the cheese and bacon used.

Variants: Use cooked crumbled sausage or even just ground beef.

  1. Place the chicken strips, oil, lemon juice, and seasoning mix in a large zip lock bag, squeeze out the air and squish everything to mix and coat the chicken. Place in the fridge for 1 to 24 hours to marinate. Highly recommended to make the seasoning from the shortcut.
  2. After the chicken has marinated, drain off any excess liquid and cook in large pan with a splash of olive oil, along with the onion and bell pepper. Cook the chicken until browned and cooked through.
  3. Serve with tortillas and top with tomatoes, cilantro, cheese, and a lime wedge on the side if desired.
Recipe Notes

Chicken breasts will cost about 59 Baht/kilo. Using that number, for 6 servings, this is about 29 cents per serving.

Shortcut: Fajita Seasoning Mix.
