In keeping with the traditional Thai cooking style of minimal ingredients, I put this together last night just to clean out the freezer. Actually quite good as well. I like quick, easy, and low cost meals, and this fits the bill perfectly. Serve as a breakfast or dinner.

Instructions
  1. In a cast iron pan heated with just a small splash of olive oil, add the bacon and the chicken livers. Separate the bacon as it cooks and turn the livers occasionally and cook until the bacon is just near crispy.
  2. Push the liver and bacon to one side and crack in the eggs, season with salt and pepper to your liking, and cover with a lid to cook the eggs.
  3. When the eggs are set and the whites cooked through, serve as a breakfast or as a dinner.
Recipe Notes

The bacon is 62 Baht per 200 grams, the liver is about 30 Baht. For 2 servings this is about $1.35 per serving, very reasonable.

My cast iron pan of choice is my 12 inch pan I located here in Thailand, and I am very satisfied with quality. Have a look if you are looking to buy a cast iron pan: Raro Cast Iron Pans they even have recipes listed.

My own creation.

Instructions
  1. Main ingredients prepped, purple onion, mushrooms (I used canned as I needed to rotate stock), and the chicken liver.
  2. In a large skillet, heat 2 tablespoons olive oil, add the shallot and a pinch of salt and cook over moderately high heat until the shallot is softened and golden, about 2 minutes. Add the chopped mushrooms and season with salt and pepper and cook until the mushrooms are softened and most of their liquid has evaporated, about 10-12 minutes. Stir in the thyme. Pour the mushrooms into a bowl and set aside.
  3. In the same skillet, heat the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Season the chicken livers with salt and pepper and coat them in flour, shaking off any excess. Fry liver over moderately high heat, turning once, until browned and crisp, about 3 minutes per side.
  4. Return the mushrooms to the skillet and pour in the wine (or chicken stock). Cook for 1 minute, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan. Add 3/4 cup of the cream to the skillet at a time, allowing the sauce to thicken between additions. Simmer until the sauce coats the back of a spoon, about 3 minutes.
  5. Add the pasta and toss to coat. Transfer to a large bowl, garnish with the parsley.
  6. Serve.
Recipe Notes

Chicken liver will cost about 33 Baht/250 grams, with the pasta and all other ingredients, well under $1 per serving for 4 servings. Very reasonable cost for a good meal.
