Instructions
  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.

Shortcuts: Italian Seasoning, Pasta Sauce, Sausage.

I like beans and make a lot of items using dry beans to start with, and I have a lot of time on my hands so I go with slow cooked beans in my slow cooker as the standard. This recipe can be tailored at will with what you have on hand or what you want to use. This recipe is what I make but it also changes each time.

Instructions
  1. Sort the beans and remove any bad ones or debris, soak overnight.
  2. Next day, drain and rinse the beans, add to your slow cooker. Add cut up sausage, ham, or bacon, add water to the slow cooker about 1 inch above the contents.
  3. Cook on Low setting for 8-10 hours (I routinely start my beans about noon, cook until about 7 or 8 pm, leave in the pot and just start cooking the next day).
  4. Season with some salt, black pepper, oregano, and cumin to your liking. Keeping mind, slow cookers will reduce the seasoning level the longer you cook.
Recipe Notes

Low cost, and it makes a lot of beans.

Variants: Use any of the following, chopped onion, tomato paste, chopped chilies, ham, bacon, or even chicken, use chicken stock instead of water, you get the idea, tailor this at will.

Common recipe I have been making for years, and never the same.

Recipe Notes

Minced pork will cost about 50 Baht/500 grams if making the sausage yourself. The Cream cheese will run about 150 Baht/250 grams, and the Cheddar will run about 90 Baht for half a 250 gram block. For all the meatballs, this is about $8.53, I will break this down to per meatball when I make these. I will state high cost for now.

Instructions
  1. You can use any sausage you have on hand, I used 8 small links, 95 grams each pack, of smoked pepper sausage that turned out very nice. But large smoked sausage or sausage scraps from Makro would work well, as would bratwurst or beerwurst.
  2. Heat a large non stick skillet with a splash of olive oil, then add the sausage and cook to get some browning going, then add the peppers and mushrooms and reduce heat to a simmer and cook until the peppers are tender yet still crunchy and a bit of browning on the mushrooms.
  3. While the peppers are cooking, heat a small pot of water to boiling then add the pasta and cook until tender, drain, then add to the skillet and mix together. Then stir in the heavy cream, season with salt and pepper to your liking. Remove from heat, cover for 5 minutes to let everything warm through.
  4. Serve with a vegetable of your choice for a nice meal.
Recipe Notes

I used 2 packages of sausage, 4 links each pack, each pack was 59 Baht. For 4 servings, this is about 87 cents per serving.

  1. Boil the potatoes until just for tender. Remove from the water and let cool so you can handle them. Once they have cooled a little, dice them into large pieces.
  2. Cook the bacon, ham, and sausage separately then remove and set aside. You can use a bit of each, or just one or two, up to you.
  3. In the same pan, heat it up with some bacon fat, olive oil, and butter, add the bell peppers, onion, season with salt, pepper, thyme, and sage.
  4. Cook until the peppers are tender, then add in the potatoes and cooked meat, mix and heat through.
  5. While cooking the peppers are cooking, preheat your oven to 180 C (350 F), put your large cast iron pan in the oven while it heats. If no cast iron pan, or you oven will not support a cast iron pan, use a baking dish. I used a baking dish.
  6. Crack the eggs into a bowl and beat slightly, then add the chopped spring onion and cheese, amount is up to you. Add this to the skillet with the potatoes and give a quick stir, remove the cast iron pan (baking dish) from the oven and pour this mixture into the pan and bake for 15-20 minutes until the eggs are set. Serve.
Recipe Notes

No cost given here, cost would be based on what you use, shortcuts will save you money as well. This would be an excellent dish to prepare for a late breakfast, brunch, as I do, a main dish for dinner.

This can range from low cost to high cost depending on what you want to use. I will say this a fair value dish as average.

Not sure if this is Irish but it sounds good and hearty. For this you will need a large oven proof pot with a lid or foil to cover. To make this in a slow cooker, cut the ingredients in half and cook on High setting for 4 hours.

Instructions
  1. Use hot water from your hot water pot and dissolve the beef powder in a sauce pan.
  2. Grill or broil the sausage and bacon to color them, do not over cook or dry them out, drain on paper towels. When drained, cut the bacon into 1 inch pieces, cut the sausage into large pieces.
  3. Preheat your oven to 150 C. Using large oven proof pot, layer the ingredients in this order: onion, bacon, sausage, potatoes. Season each layer with pepper and parsley. Repeat until all the ingredients are used.
  4. Heat the water with beef stock in it to boil, then pour this into the large pot and cover with a lid or foil. Place the pot in the oven and cook for at least 3 hours (4 to 5 hours does not hurt either). At the 2 hour point, check the liquid level in the point, you want about an inch of liquid in the bottom of the pot at all times. Serve, liquid at the bottom is your gravy.
Recipe Notes

The sausage, spicy smoked sausage runs about 125 Baht/500 grams, English Bangers, pork or beef will run about 100 Baht/500 grams. Brats will run about 180 Baht/500 grams. Bacon will cost about 200 to 280 Baht/500 grams. Using Bangers, this comes out to about $1.88 per serving for 6 servings. Over all, not a bad cost for a hearty meal.

To cook this in a slow cooker, cut the ingredients in half and cook on High setting for 4 hours.

I cannot, at this point vouch for the accuracy of the name, but it does sound very good, if you do not want the sausage, don't add the sausage, as easy as that. On my to cook list for sure!

  1. In a medium sized bowl mix cream cheese with chicken stock, salt and pepper, garlic, and mustard until incorporated.
  2. Slice the sauce into bite size pieces, and cut the chicken breasts into 3-4 pieces each. Place this in the slow cooker, sprinkle the onion over the top. Pour the cream cheese mixture over the top of the onions.
  3. Cover and place on High setting for 4 hours or Low setting for 6-7 hours, checking it occasionally to make sure it's not thickening too much. If it is, add more chicken stock.
  4. When you are ready to serve, you can place the meal in a baking dish and pop it under the broiler for a couple of minutes for some browning. Serve over rice, buttered pasta, or boiled potatoes.
Recipe Notes

Chicken will cost you about 55 Baht/750 grams, the sausage I will say on a low side of 100 Baht, the Cream cheese will cost about 120 Baht/200 grams. This comes out to about $1.35 per serving for 6 servings, and about $1.02 for 8 servings, either way, very economical. When I make this, I can give more accurate pricing.
