It was a Saturday afternoon – which is, as everyone knows, prime football watching time – and we needed something to enjoy while watching the game.

I thought chili cheese fries would be really good and I had chili leftover from the night before, but there were no frozen fries in the house and I really didn’t want to make them from scratch. There were, however, a couple of frozen hash brown patties in the freezer leftover from breakfast. Voila – a new idea was born.

I took those frozen hash brown patties, topped them with the warmed leftover chili, some shredded sharp cheddar cheese, and diced green onions. Wow were these good!

Besides being a great game day snack, these Chili Cheese Browns would be a fantastic quick weekday supper. Add a fresh green salad and you’re all set!

Prepare hash brown patties according to the package instructions. Place each patty in an individual serving dish.
