Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 180 C (350 F), get out a 9x13 baking dish. Spread half of the sliced mushrooms in the bottom of the dish.
  2. Place the eggs and breadcrumbs in two separate bowls, you are making an assembly line for the chicken.
  3. Heat a large non stick and 2 tablespoons of the butter. Now place a chicken breast in the egg, then into the breadcrumbs patting them on as well, add the chicken to the hot pan and cook to golden brown on both sides, about 5 minutes, not looking to cook the chicken through, just good and golden brown. Work in batches until all the chicken is browned, using additional butter as needed.
  4. As the chicken is browned, place on top of the mushrooms in the baking dish. Add the remaining mushrooms on top of the chicken, then top with the cheese.
  5. Pour the broth into the pan. Bake for 30 minutes or until the cheese is melted and starting to brown up and the chicken cooked through.
  6. Remove from the oven and let rest for about 5 minutes, serve and enjoy.
Recipe Notes

One kilo of chicken breasts will cost about 60 Baht. The cheese will cost about 180 Baht for 250 grams. For 4 servings, this is about $1.90 per serving.

I grew up on Hamburger Helper, and many times the hamburger (hamburger meat for all my friends in the deep south of the US) was substituted with ground venison. My early years in the Navy, my wife and I made Hamburger Helper to stretch those dollars between paydays. This is basically hamburger, pasta (maybe potatoes), spices, milk, and water, and a load of preservatives. So I did a bit of research on the internet and found a site that replicated all of the dishes available. The basic instruction is brown the ground beef and drain, then add in the ingredients for each version you wish then simmer. Enjoy. Links to the shortcut are listed in the Recipe Notes section.

Recipe Notes

Low cost.

Shortcuts: Italian Seasoning, Sour Cream.

Notes: 1. If using true Thai chili powder, cut the amount back by 1/3 to 1/2 as it is quite hotter than chili powder in the US. 2. The salt and sugar are OPTIONAL! I have made several of these and you can certainly leave out the sugar. Salt is used in the boxed version of this much the way McDonald's uses salt, sugar is used in the box version much the way cereals in the US are made, to get you to not like the meal, but love the meal, and buy more. When I make these, I do not add sugar, but I do add salt, a touch less than what is stated.

Ingredients
Servings: servings
Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 220 C (425 F).
  2. Heat a pot of salted water to a boil, then add the pasta and cook that until just tender, drain well (let cool for a few minutes before adding to a Pyrex dish) pour into a 9x13 baking dish.
  3. While the water is heating for the pasta, heat a large non stick pan and add the sausage and break it with a spatula as you cook it, add some chopped up pepperoni slice if want and add to the pan as well, as much as you like. When cooked through, do not drain, just pour into the baking dish and mix with the pasta until "all the pasta is coated with the yummy meatiness." (Author's words, very cool!)
  4. Add the pasta sauce and mix together, now add the pizza cheese blend and mix that in. Once mixed, smooth out the top evenly, top with Mozzarella, then a layer of pepperoni slices.
  5. Bake until bubbly, about 25 to 30 minutes. Remove and let rest for a few minutes, you have a bubbly dish of cheese lava, you are just cooling it a bit before serving.
  6. Serve. Garlic bread would be a great side dish.
Recipe Notes

The sausage if you make yourself, about 45 Baht. The cheeses will cost about 175 Baht for the pizza cheese blend, and 140 Baht for the Mozzarella. For 6 servings, this is about $1.77 per serving.

Shortcuts: Italian Sausage, Pasta Sauce.

Variants: 1. Easy, anything you like on a pizza. The author, Amy, says diced green bell pepper and sliced mushrooms is a very good addition. 2. To make this leaner, use chicken sausage.

  1. Preheat your oven to broil, if using a counter top oven, heat the top coil. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place the mushroom caps on the paper with the top of the caps upwards.
  2. Mix together in a bowl, the oil, garlic, and Italian seasoning. Brush the mushroom caps with the oil mixture, then turn the caps over so the underside is facing upwards.
  3. Spoon on the pasta sauce, divided among the 4 mushrooms, onto the mushrooms, sprinkle on the cheese also divided between the mushrooms, then top the cheese with some cooked sausage, then some pepperoni slices.
  4. Broil for about 8 minutes or until the cheese is starting to brown.
  5. Serve.
Recipe Notes

Low cost really but I cannot say for sure until I source the mushrooms. I will say Low cost for now but that may change once I make these.

Instructions
  1. Melt butter in a pot over low heat, add onions and stir, cover and stir occasionally, cooking for about 30 minutes.
  2. Add the broth and Worcestershire sauce and stir in and increase to a boil then reduce to a simmer. Simmer uncovered for about 30 minutes and the broth will reduce a lot.
  3. While the broth is reducing, preheat your oven to 180 C and grease a baking dish, I would say an 8x8 or 7x11, with butter. Lightly toast the French bread, you can do that while heating the oven.
  4. Pour the onion mixture into the prepared baking dish. Add the toast slices to the top in an even layer and space them out about 1/2 inch apart.
  5. Add the Mozzarella over the toast, then the Parmesan. Bake for 20-30 minutes or until the cheese is melted and nicely browned.
  6. Let rest for a few minutes, serve as a side dish.
Recipe Notes

Cheese is the only costly items here. Figure about 90 Baht for the Mozzarella. For 4 servings, this is about 66 cents per serving.

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.
