Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 200 C. Oil 4 ramekins or Pyrex 10 ounce dishes.
  2. Heat the oil in a medium saucepan, add the onion and saute until soft, about 5 minutes. Add the spinach and saute until wilted, about 2 minutes, then remove the pot from the heat. If you are going to be using Pyrex dishes, let this cool to room temperature.
  3. In a mixing bowl, mix together the tomatoes, cumin, salt, pepper, paprika, and hot sauce if using. Then stir in the spinach mixture until just combined. Divide into the 4 ramekins or Pyrex dishes and make a depression in the center of each.
  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. Let the roast come to room temp by sitting it on the counter for 30 minutes. Heat a large non stick pan on medium high heat and add the olive oil. Sprinkle the roast all over with 3 teaspoons of the kosher salt and the black pepper.
  2. Add the roast to the pan and sear on all sides, rotating the roast every 3 or 4 minutes to brown all sides of the roast. When the roast is browned, remove and place in your slow cooker.
  3. Add the remaining ingredients except the parsley. Cook on Low setting for 8 hours.
  4. To serve, remove the roast from the slow cooker and let rest 10 minutes. Slice across the grain, mashed potatoes, the veggies from the pot and gravy over the potatoes, garnish with fresh chopped parsley, sounds perfect.
Recipe Notes

For the beef, figure about 300 Baht/1 1/2 kilo roast. For 8 servings, this is about $1.10 per serving.

  1. Preheat your oven to 180 C. Grease a 7x11 inch baking dish with butter.
  2. In a large skillet, brown the beef 5-7 minutes. Drain off excess fat, add onion, garlic, and chili powder. Continue to cook and stir for 2 minutes. Add the beans to the cooked meat mixture. Combine the tomatoes with the soup in a small bowl, mixing completely.
  3. Place about 3/4 of the crushed corn chips into the bottom of the casserole dish. Spoon on half the beef mixture, then half the soup mixture. Then add half of the shredded cheese. Repeat the layers, ending with shredded cheese.
  4. Sprinkle the top of the dish with the remaining crushed corn chips. Bake 30-35 minutes until bubbling and top is lightly browned. Remove from oven, let rest for 5 minutes, serve.
Recipe Notes

Figure about 150 Baht for the beef and about 180 Baht for the cheese, think a 250 gram block. For 8 servings, this is about $1.21 per serving.

Variant: Use Chorizo instead of ground beef.

Shortcuts: Corn Chips, Chili Beans, Condensed Cream of Chicken Soup.

  1. Preheat your oven to 190 C. Get out a 8 inch or 7x11 baking dish.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and brown on both sides, then remove from the pan. It’s OK if it’s not quite cooked through because it will be baked later. To the same pan, add the garlic and cook for 1 minute, then add the diced tomatoes and spaghetti sauce.
  3. Add the cream cheese and stir to melt into the sauce. Add the spinach and stir to coat in the sauce. Add the browned chicken back in then add the pasta. Stir and coat with the sauce.
  4. Spoon everything into the baking dish. Top with the mozzarella and Parmesan. Bake for 20 minutes.
Recipe Notes

The chicken will cost about 40 Baht/500 grams. The Mozzarella will cost about 60 Baht. For 4 servings, this is about 75 cents per serving.

Instructions
  1. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook the pancetta and red pepper flakes until lightly browned, 4-5 minutes. Add the wine, scraping the bottom of the pan to gather any browned bits until wine is nearly all evaporated, about 3 minutes.
  2. Add tomatoes and bring to a simmer, season with black pepper, reduce heat to low and simmer 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally, until sauce thickens.
  3. While sauce is simmering, bring a large pot of salted water to boil. Cook pasta until just tender. Using tongs, transfer cooked pasta to the sauce and about ¼ cup of pasta water, stirring quickly until incorporated. If the sauce is too thick, add a bit more of the pasta water.
  4. Remove from heat and stir in cheese. Season to taste with salt and pepper and serve.
Recipe Notes

Figure about 100 Baht for the bacon, on average, there is plenty of choices. For 4 servings, this is about 75 cents per serving.

  1. I am not sure what 4 cups of chicken would be in grams. Safe bet to go with 1 kilo of chicken, combination of legs, thighs, and breasts (skin on and bone in) for a good mix of meat. Boil that, then simply leave the chicken in the broth and let it cool to room temperature, this makes for juicy chicken. Remove the skin and bones, then chop or shred the chicken, save the broth for use in another recipe.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together first 8 ingredients. Set aside. Tear the tortillas into 1 inch pieces.
  3. Layer 1/3 of the tortilla pieces in a lightly greased slow cooker. Top with 1/3 of the chicken mixture and 2/3 cup cheese. Repeat the layers twice.
  4. Cover and cook on the Low setting for 3 1/2 hours, then remove the cover and continue to cook for an additional 30 minutes.
  5. Serve with salsa and sour cream.
Recipe Notes

Figure 60 Baht/1 kilo of chicken, the cheese would cost about 180 Baht/250 gram block. I cannot price the tortillas until I buy them and I will update the serving cost when I make this. For 6 servings, minus the tortillas, this is about $1.18 per serving.

Ingredients

Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 220 C.
  2. Add a splash of olive oil and the garlic in a large skillet and place over medium heat. When the garlic sizzles and its edges start to brown, add the tomatoes, red pepper flakes and salt to taste. Bring to a simmer and continue to cook, stirring occasionally, until the sauce thickens, about 8 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in the chopped basil.
  3. Heat a large sheet pan in the oven for at least 10 minutes while you bread the eggplant. Line up 3 shallow dishes; fill one with the flour, one with the beaten eggs, and one with the breadcrumbs. Sprinkle both sides of the eggplant slices with salt. Dredge an eggplant slice in the flour (tapping off excess), then dip in the egg, and finally dredge it in the breadcrumbs. Repeat with the remaining eggplant. Set each slice aside on a foil sheet. This photo shows the three bowls after I coated all the slices.
  4. When all the eggplant slices are breaded, carefully remove the heated sheet pan from the oven and brush it with a splash of olive oil. Place the eggplant on the sheet pan in a single layer. Bake until the undersides are crisp and browned, 8-10 minutes, then flip the slices and continue baking until they are golden on the second side, 8-10 minutes more.
  5. Both sides baked, not very brown really but almost fork tender.
  6. Top the baked eggplant with the tomato sauce, Mozzarella slices, and Parmesan.
  7. Return the pan to the oven and bake, rotating halfway through, until the cheese melts and browns and the sauce is bubbly, 20 to 25 minutes. Top with torn basil before serving.
  8. Serve with pasta on the side.
Recipe Notes

Low cost.

Variant: Use pasta sauce or make from a shortcut using tomato paste as the base.

  5. Bring the tomato mixture up to a simmer, then stir in one cup of uncooked extra long grain rice. Cover the pan with a lid and reduce the heat down to low. Let mixture cook 20-30 minutes, or until rice is tender.
  6. At the 20 minute mark, start stirring the pan occasionally so the rice does not stick to the bottom of the pan. One rice is tender, sprinkle the cheese on top. Cover the pan with the lid to let the cheese melt.
  7. Garnish with fresh diced bell peppers and green onions.
