These sound very good, and I will give two variants to try. This is a 'filled' burger as opposed to a 'stuffed' burger. Cooked on a grill and no flipping required. This is written for 2 burgers of each variant, just adjust the variant ingredients to make more or less of each. On my to cook list.

Ingredients
Cheddar & Jalapeno Filling (for 2 burgers)
Servings: servings
Instructions
  1. Heat your grill to medium with either charcoal or gas. You will be cooking over indirect heat.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the beef, Worcestershire sauce and garlic powder, divide into 4 half pound balls. Place a beer can on top of a ball and push down and form the beef around the can and just a bit up the side. Wrap two slices of bacon the burger. Twist the can to remove that, the burger should have a nice deep indentation in it. Repeat this for the remaining balls. Season each indentation and the rest of the burger with ample salt and pepper to taste.
  3. For 2 burgers, add cubed Cheddar and Jalapeno slices in each indentation.
  4. For the 2 burgers with Bell Pepper, add the bell pepper and onion in each indentation then top each with a slice of Provolone.
  5. Grill the burgers over indirect heat, and covered, until cooked through, 30 minutes should be a medium burger.
  6. To serve, place lettuce and tomato on the bottom bun, place a burger on top, top with the top bun.
Recipe Notes

Beef will cost about 200 Baht/kilo. Cheddar about 180 Baht for 2 cups cubed, Provolone about 45 Baht for 2 slices. For 4 servings, this is about $3.13 per serving. Not cheap but sounds really good for a once in a while cookout with friends and family.

Ingredients
For the Burgers
For the Tomato Garlic Jam
Servings: burgers
Instructions
  1. Peel tomatoes by slicing a small X in the base of each tomato. Place tomatoes in a pot of boiling water for 30 to 45 seconds or until skin loosens. Remove tomatoes with a slotted spoon and slip skins off when cool enough to handle. Chop tomatoes.
  2. To make tomato garlic jam, combine sugar and lime juice in a small saucepan. Warm over medium heat until sugar dissolves. Add chopped tomatoes, red bell pepper, garlic, and chili. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer uncovered for 30 minutes or until mixture has reduced by about half. Stir in fish sauce (if using) and allow to cool to room temperature.
  3. In a large bowl, gently mix together ground beef, shiitake mushrooms, cilantro, scallions, soy sauce, Chinese 5 spice, and ginger. Form into 4 equal-size patties.
  4. Add a splash of olive oil to a non stick skillet over medium heat. Place patties in the pan. Cover and cook 4 minutes. Then flip and cook 3 to 4 more minutes. Serve burgers on buns topped with tomato garlic jam and shredded cabbage or coleslaw mix.
Recipe Notes

The beef would cost about 100 Baht/500 grams, for 4 servings, this is about 74 cents per serving.

Shortcut: Hamburger Buns.

Servings: sandwiches
Instructions
  1. Cut each chicken breast in half and pound them to 1/2 inch thickness. Sprinkle each piece on both sides with paprika, salt, and pepper to your liking. Place them in a large zip lock bag or plastic bag, like a Tesco shopping bag, and pour the pickle juice over them. Press out the extra air by twisting the bag, then place that in a bowl and place the fridge for 6 hours our anytime up to overnight.
  2. Preheat your oven to 230 C and place a wire rack on a baking sheet and set aside. While the oven is heating, stir together the flour, spices, sugar, and baking soda in a bowl and set aside. In another bowl whisk together the egg and milk. Take the chicken out of the fridge, dip each piece in the egg mixture the coat well with the flour mixture making sure the entire piece is coated with flour.
  3. Place the chicken on the wire rack and generously spray each piece with olive oil, coating the flour completely. Turn the pieces over and spray the other side with olive oil. Bake for 12 minutes, then turn the chicken over and bake another 15 minutes or until the chicken is golden brown, crispy, and cooked through. Remove from the oven and top with cheese of your choice and let these rest for 5 minutes.
  4. Butter each bun and place on a sheet and bake for 3-4 minutes until toasted. Place 3-4 pickle slices on each bottom bun, top with a piece of chicken and the other toasted bun. Serve.
Recipe Notes

For 2 chicken breasts, this is low cost even if using cheese.

Instructions
  1. Place the beef in a large mixing bowl. Fold in the Island Teriyaki sauce and panko. Cover and chill in the fridge for 1 hour or until ready to cook.
  2. Prepare a charcoal grill for direct cooking over medium-high heat. Seed the bell pepper and cut it into 4 pieces. When the meat mixture is ready, shape the meat into 4 burger patties.
  3. Grill the burgers to desired doneness. Also grilling the bell pepper, pineapple rings, and lightly toasting the buns.
  4. Serve the burgers on top of lettuce, bell pepper and then topped with the pineapple ring. Include a side and you have a meal.
Recipe Notes

I am going to go with 200 Baht/kilo for beef (would only need 750 grams, but a kilo would make better burgers), how you get that beef may involve you grinding it yourself. For 4 servings, this is about $1.48 per serving. If you was to make this from pork which could very well be done, the cost would be about half of this per serving, chicken would be less.

For the Burgers
For the Sauce
Servings: servings
Instructions
  1. Make the sauce by mixing together the may and Sriracha sauce, set aside.
  2. Fry the bacon strips and drain them on paper towel, set aside.
  3. Form the meat into 3 equal sized patties, use a small drinking glass to cut out the center of each patty so you have 3 donut shaped patties, use the meat from the three circles and make a 4th donut shaped patty. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Heat a heavy non stick pan or a cast iron pan and melt the butter. Add the patties and cook for 2 minutes, then flip. Crack an egg into the center of each patty then cover and cook until the egg whites are set.
  5. Toast the buns if desired, spread with the sauce. Build the burgers as bottom bun, lettuce, burger patty, 2 bacon slices, Cheddar cheese, top bun. Serve with a side of your choice.
Recipe Notes

Ground beef would cost about 150 Baht/500 grams, minced pork runs about 70 Baht/500 grams. The bacon and cheese is probably no more than 60 Baht total. For 4 servings, this would be about $1.55 per serving if using beef, and about 96 cents per serving if using pork. Overall, not bad.

Easy, nutritious meal that is low in cost, fish is a great option. Normally when I have fish, it is just rolled in flour or breaded and pan fried, one day I wanted something different so I put this together. Link to the shortcut is listed in the Recipe Notes section.

Instructions
  1. Get your fixings ready first, slice some Cheddar cheese, get the mayo and tartar sauce out, tear off a few leaves of lettuce. Set 4 buns aside, spread tartar sauce on the top and bottom buns, then add your cheese. (I used just bread slices, my preferred way actually, home made tartar sauce, and the cheese is cut from a block.)
  2. Cut fish fillets in half and dredge in flour. Pan fry in olive oil until golden brown.
  3. Top each bun bottom with a half fillet, top that with lettuce and the top bun. Delicious! As an option, top each fillet with lump crab meat.
Recipe Notes

Pangasius is also called Shark Catfish, it does not have a catfish flavor, more like a whitefish. The meat is flaky when cooked, firm, and a mild taste.

Pangasius runs about 110 Baht per kilo, I bought 3 fillets 2 days ago for 66 Baht, that would make 6 sandwiches. Fish prepared this way is a one time deal, try not to have left overs. If you fry to many fillets, just refrigerate and fry to warm up the next day.

Even with the Cheddar cheese, imported from New Zealand, you only use a few slices per sandwich so I do not factor in that cost. Tartar sauce is Tesco brand, very reasonable prices and last many meals.

Over all, about 65 cents per meal per person.

Shortcut: Tartar Sauce.
