Sounds very good. And for your educational tip for today, Indian Curry Powder is not Indian, that is a British mix of spices. True Indian curries uses curry leaves, totally different flavor. On my to cook list.

For the Chicken Seasoning
Servings: servings
Instructions
  1. Slice the Andouille sausage in half lengthwise and slice half moons 1/4 inch thick. For regular pork or beef sausage, just slice 1/4 inch thick. Set aside.
  2. In a large non stick pan, heat a splash of olive oil, when hot, add the cubed chicken and season with the Chicken Seasoning spices to taste, just a bit of each spice will do. Lightly brown the chicken, no need to cook through, over cooked chicken = tough chicken. When lightly browned, remove from the pan to a large bowl and set aside. If there is water in the pan, pour that off.
  3. Same pan, add the sausage and brown that up, remove from the pan and add to the bowl with the chicken and set aside.
  4. Same pan, add the bell peppers, saute for about 5 minutes then add the garlic and shallots. Saute for about 15 minutes or until the bell peppers are just softened yet still crunchy. If using the the optional mushrooms, add those now and saute to just soften them. Remove from heat and set aside. Now follow either Method 1 or Method 2 for the final preparation.
Method 1
  1. In a large pot, add the stock, cream, chicken and sausage, bell peppers from the pan, and the pasta. Bring to a boil then reduce to a simmer and cook for 25 to 30 minutes uncovered, to reduce the liquid amount, stirring often.
  2. Stir in the spring onion and Parmesan, simmer for 5 more minutes. Serve and enjoy.
Method 2
  1. In a pot heat the stock to boiling and cook the pasta until tender. Drain.
  2. While the pasta is cooking, add the sausage and chicken to the pan with the bell peppers, use low heat and just heat everything through.
  3. Add the drained pasta to the pan and mix together well, then add the cream and just simmer for 10 to 15 minutes. Serve and enjoy.
Recipe Notes

The chicken will cost between 30 and 60 Baht, 500 grams/1 kilo, and the sausage, going with Cumberland, 750 grams is about 267 Baht. For 6 servings, this is about $1.60 per serving.

  4. Crack an egg into each dish and sprinkle with the Feta cheese. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, until the whites are set and the yolks still soft.
  5. Serve with some toast for a breakfast, lunch, or even a light dinner.

  1. Eggs cooked and peeled, I use my fool proof shortcut for cooking these. I used duck eggs.
  2. Peel the eggs and cut in half lengthwise, remove the yolks and place those in a mixing bowl, place the egg halves on a serving tray.
  3. To the yolks, add the mayo, chopped pickles and pickle juice, dill, and mustard. Mash with a fork until mixed well and creamy. Taste and season with salt and pepper to your liking.
  4. Fill the halved eggs with the yolk mixture. Garnish with a slice or two of thinly sliced pickle, then a light sprinkle of paprika, and just a list sprinkle of chopped dill. Refrigerate for at least an hour or two before serving.

Instructions
  1. To a large pot, add the first 11 ingredients. Bring to a boil then reduce heat to a simmer and cook for 1 hour, uncovered. Remove the chops and set aside to cool.
  2. Remove 3/4 cup of broth from the pot then whisk the flour into the broth you removed. Set aside. When the chops have cooled, remove and discard any bones and fat then chop the meat into bite size pieces.
  3. To the pot, add the 5 vegetables at the end of the ingredient list and add the chopped pork as well. Stir and bring to a boil and stir in the flour mixture you set aside earlier. Reduce heat to a simmer and let cook for 1 hour, stirring occasionally.
  4. Remove the bay leaf, and optionally, you can gently mash some of the potatoes to make a thicker soup. Serve.
Recipe Notes

Figure about 100 Baht for pork loin (boneless chops). For 8 servings, this is about 40 cents per serving. When I price bone in chops I will update pricing here.

Ingredients

Instructions
  1. Add the diced potatoes to a medium size pot, add water to cover by an inch and add the vinegar as well. Bring to a boil then reduce heat to medium, cook until just for tender, about 10 minutes, don't over cook them. when just fork tender, remove from heat and drain. Set aside.
  2. Clean the leaks by cutting off the root ends and the the dark green leafy part. Rinse, then thinly slice into rings, add the slice to a bowl of cold water and stir and agitate the water to remove any sand or dirt between the various layers. Remove the slices and drain any water from them. If there is a lot of grit in the water after you removed the slices, pour that out and repeat the process just to be sure the leeks are good cleaned.
  3. Heat the olive oil in a large pan, a cast iron pan would be ideal. When hot, over medium heat, add the sliced leeks and cook until just soft, about 5-6 minutes or so.
  4. Add the diced potatoes, garlic, paprika, and salt, and cook until the potatoes are golden brown.
For Eggs Cooked Seperately
  1. When the potatoes are golden brown, place the hash on plates to serve. Same pan, crack in your eggs and cooked to your desired likeness. Place an egg on each plate of hash, serve.
For Eggs Cooked on the Hash
  1. Lower heat to low. Use a large spoon and make 4 to 5 indentations in the potatoes. Crack an egg into a small bowl, gently pour the egg into an indention in the hash, repeat for the rest of the eggs. The reason I state use a bowl, if you crack an egg directly into the hash but a yolk breaks, the egg will just disappear into the hash, still very good, not visually appealing though.
  2. Once the eggs are on the hash, season them with salt and pepper to your liking, and cover the pan with a lid. Check the eggs every minute or so to get perfect sunny side up eggs. Serve by scooping out a portion of hash with the egg already on top.
