Sounds like a great appetizer. Not a cheap appetizer based on the cheese and bacon. Link to the shortcut is listed in the Recipe Notes section.

Servings: loaf
Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 180 C.
  2. Using a sharp bread knife cut the bread going both directions. Do not cut through the bottom crust. Place slices of cheese in between cuts. Sprinkle cooked bacon on bread, making sure to get in between cuts. Mix together butter and Ranch dressing mix. Pour over bread. Wrap loaf in foil and place on a baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes. Unwrap. Bake for an additional 10 minutes, or until cheese is melted.
Recipe Notes

The cheese would cost about 180 Baht/250 grams, the bacon would cost about 130 Baht/200 grams. I will take a guess at 6 servings, this would cost about $1.52 per serving, not cheap but but sounds really nice for a once in a while appetizer for visiting family and friends.

Shortcut: Ranch Dressing Mix.

Excellent rolls! This recipe uses a bread machine for the hard work, and you will bake these in the oven. These rolls are large and a perfect softness.

Ingredients
Servings: rolls
Instructions
  1. Place ingredients in the bread machine pan in the order specified in your owner's manual. Select dough cycle. Check dough consistency after 5 minutes of kneading. The dough should be in a soft, tacky ball. If it is dry and stiff, add water, 1/2 to 1 tablespoon at a time. If it is too wet and sticky, add 1 tablespoon of flour at a time. Take out dough when cycle is finished.
  2. Turn dough onto a floured surface, flour the top, punch down to remove air bubbles. Divide dough into 8 pieces. On lightly floured surface, shape each piece into a smooth ball. Place on a cookie sheet lined with foil and floured. Flatten each ball to 4 inches in diameter. Cover, let rise until indentations remains after touching. If desired, brush with egg wash (combine 1 egg and 1 tablespoon of water) just before baking. Bake in preheated 200 C (390 F) oven for 15 to 20 minutes. Remove from cookie sheet and let cool on a wire rack.
  3. And with sesame seeds.
  4. These are huge rolls!
Recipe Notes

Low cost.

In addition to sandwiches and burgers, think bread bowls, scoop out the middle and fill with chowder or a good stew.

Instructions
  1. Remove the starter from the fridge and feed it, then let it sit on the counter overnight to ensure an even room temp. Remember, after you take out the 2 cups of starter, replenish the starter with 2 cups of water and 2 cups of flour, and a pinch of sugar, mix and let sit on the counter for a few hours, then return to the fridge.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the starter, sugar, egg, olive oil, and salt. Set aside.
  3. In a small bowl, mix the 1 tablespoon of water and the 1 teaspoon of baking soda, set aside until ready to make your pancakes.
  4. Now when you have a griddle or heavy pan heating up, gently fold in the baking soda mixture into the sourdough mixture, do not beat it, just fold it in. Pour the batter, a soup ladle or measuring cup works great, about 1/4 to 1/2 cup of batter at a time. When bubbles appear on the top and the bottom is golden brown, flip, this only takes 1-2 minutes per side.
  5. Serve with your favorite topping, such as butter, syrup, jam, etc.

You will need a sourdough starter for this recipe. There is no added yeast, you are going to use naturally occurring yeast. This sounds good and I am looking forward to making it. This does take time however.

Remember, after you take out the 1 cup of starter, replenish the starter with 1 cup of water and 1 cup of flour, and a pinch of sugar, mix and let sit on the counter for a few hours, then return to the fridge.
  2. In a large glass bowl, mix the sugar, oil, salt, water, and starter, mix in the flour until the last cup, add that a little at a time, you may need a bit more, or a bit less to get the right consistency. Should form a nice ball of dough. Turn the dough out onto a work surface, put a small amount of oil in the bowl and rub it around to coat the bottom and sides, return the dough to the bowl and flip that around to lightly oil that as well, cover with a towel and let rise overnight.
  3. The next day, grease 2 bread pans with a light coat of butter, then punch down the dough, divide in half, shape a little to fit the pans and put each half in each bread pan. Allow the dough to double in size. This can take hours so have some patience, and start on this step in the early morning.
  4. Once the loaves have doubled, bake in a 180 C oven for 40-45 or until the bread is golden brown and taps hollow. Remove from the oven and turn out on a wire rack to cool.

Sourdough starter is a very old technique to keep ready to use dough, breads and pancakes come to mind. The starter improves with age, the longer you keep it, the better the flavor will improve. I remember my Mom had starter in the fridge for years, and I remember the bread she made from it, delicious! Think of starter as a pet you keep in the fridge as this does require care, there is a few rules to follow as well. Now for folks in the far north, this will be straight forward to make in the cooler months you have up there, for everyone else, you may need to use an air conditioned room to get the starter going, meaning to ferment. The basic rule I have seen is you need a place that is lower than 31 C (88 F), anything over that temp and the starter may fail to ferment. Yeast is used to kick start this initially, naturally occurring yeast will do the rest, it just needs to have flour and water on a regular basis.

Ingredients
Servings: starter
Instructions
  1. In a large glass or plastic bowl, mix together the yeast, flour, and water, cover with a towel and leave at room temperature to ferment for 4 to 8 days. Each day, you are going to FEED it, add a 1/4 cup of flour and a 1/4 cup of water, mix that in. If your bowl is not that large, set it on a cookie sheet in case the dough over flows the bowl.
  2. Once it is bubbly and has a pleasant sour smell, it is ready to use, or to refrigerate for use later. Once your starter is made, it will live primarily in the fridge but needs some feeding, you can do this once a week. Feeding is just that, first you remove 1/4 cup of starter and discard or use, THEN you are going to add just a little bit to the mixture to keep the fermentation active. For feeding, if you removed 1/4 cup, then add 1/4 cup of flour and 1/4 cup of water to the mix, stir that in and let it sit at room temp for a few hours, then you can return it to the fridge. A liquid will appear, it is alcohol, just stir that back into the mix. Only need to feed it once a week.
  3. When you use starter to bake, always replace with equal amounts of a flour and water mixture. So, if you remove 1 cup starter, replace with 1 cup water and 1 cup flour. Mix well and leave out on the counter at room temp until bubbly again, then refrigerate. Most recipes will state if the starter has to be room temp or from the fridge, if room temp, then take out the starter the night before and just let it set on your counter over night.
  4. IMPORTANT: when you make the starter initially, or anytime after that, if the mixture discolors to pink or orange, or any odd color, discard the mixture.
