Ingredients
Topping, Optional
Servings: 2 inch squares
Instructions
  1. Add the flour, brown sugar, baking soda, and salt in a mixing bowl, and mix together. Cut in the butter with a pastry cutter or large sturdy fork, until the mixture is the consistency of coarse meal.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the honey, milk, and vanilla extract, then add to the flour mixture and mix until the dough comes together into a sticky and very soft ball.
  3. Place a sheet of plastic wrap on the counter and dust with flour, turn out the dough onto the plastic wrap and pat into a rectangle about 1 inch thick. Wrap in the plastic then place in the fridge for at least 2 hours or even overnight is fine.
  4. When you are ready to roll out the crackers, make the Topping by just mixing those two ingredients in a small bowl, set aside.
  5. Preheat your oven to 180 C. Line a baking sheet or two with parchment paper. If you have two racks in your oven, position one to lower and one to higher and use two sheets. If only one rack, then just use the center rack.
  6. Remove the dough from the fridge, cut in half and and return one half to the fridge. Lightly flour your work surface and unwrap and place the dough on the floured surface.
  7. Lightly flour the top, roll out to 1/8 inch thick, by rolling out to a larger rectangle or square. Cut into 2 inch squares with a pastry cutter wheel.
  8. Place the squares on a baking sheet, sprinkle with topping if desired, refrigerate for about 30 to 45 minutes to firm up the crackers. Repeat the rolling and chilling with the other half of dough.
  9. Make some holes in the crackers for decoration just prior to baking, about 9 even spaced holes using the flat end of a wood skewer.
  10. If using two racks and two sheets, place both sheets in the oven and bake for 15-25 minutes, swapping the top and bottom sheets half way through cooking if using two sheets, until browned and slightly firm to the touch.
  11. Remove from the oven and allow to cool, now you have graham crackers.

Instructions
  1. Place the chicken legs in a 9x13 baking dish.
  2. Mix the remaining ingredients in a small bowl with a whisk, whisk until it comes together, about 1 minute. Pour the glaze over the chicken, turn the chicken as needed to coat all the pieces.
  3. Cover and let sit on the counter to marinate for about 30 minutes.
  4. Preheat your oven about 15 minutes into the marinating time, then at 30 minutes bake the chicken for about an hour or until the chicken is cooked through.
  5. Serve with mashed potatoes or rice and a vegetable for a nice meal.
Recipe Notes

Figure about 70 Baht/kilo of chicken legs, do yourself a favor and buy quarters and use the legs for this and same the thighs for another recipe, quarters generally have larger legs and takes just seconds to cut legs from thighs. For 4 servings, this is about 52 cents per serving.

Instructions
  1. Heat your broiler or counter top oven with the top coil heated to about 250 C. Place the rack in the upper position of the oven.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, add the chicken and the next 6 ingredients. Mix together to coat the chicken.
  3. Place the thighs on a foil lined, buttered, baking sheet.
  4. Place the baking sheet in the oven and broil for 5 minutes on each side.
  5. While the chicken is broiling, in a small bowl, mix together the honey and vinegar.
  6. Remove the sheet from oven, brush the honey mixture onto the chicken, Broil for 1 minute, remove, turn the chicken over, brush the honey sauce again, broil for 1 more minute.
  7. Sacrifice one thigh and cut through to check for doneness.
  8. Serve with mashed potatoes and a vegetable for a meal.
Recipe Notes

For 8 thighs, I will guess about 70 Baht for 1 kilo, in my experience, buy 8 quarters, you get larger thighs but you will have to cut them yourself, very easy. Use the legs in another recipe. For 4 servings, this is about 52 cents per serving.

Instructions
  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.

Shortcuts: Pork Sausage, Sandwich Rolls.
