Chili Cheese Hashbrown Bake

Happy Sunday! It is raining again, I think it was raining during last Sunday's post, yuck! At least we have had a few days of sun in between the rains this week. My menu from this last 2 weeks is about to run out, so I am working on the next menu today. I got 3 food magazines in the mail this past week, so fun! 

This is not a meal I would normally make. I found it in my Southern Living Magazine last month and decided to try it out. I used to love sloppy joe's as a child so, why not? I was not expecting J to like them because he is so weird about "heavier," casserole type, dishes. (What is it with men and casseroles???) He loved it and actually ate 2 for dinner then the left over one for lunch the next day.

Chili Cheese Hashbrown Bake
1/2 pound ground turkey
1/2 can sloppy joe sauce
1/2 can chili with beans
Frozen Shredded hash browns (2 cups)
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Preheat oven to 425. Cook turkey in a skillet, breaking it apart as it cooks.

Sitr in sloppy joe sauce and chili.
Cook until heated through.
Evenly divide meat sauce among 4 (greased) oven-proof ramekins .
Top with about 1/2 cup of hash browns. I put them in frozen and it took them so long to brown that the meat sauce started to burn. I recommend microwaving them to defrost them before adding to the bowls.
Cover with foil and bake in oven covered for 30 mins. Remove foil and bake for 10 more minutes (hashbrowns should be golden).
Add 1/4 cup of cheese to each bowl then return to oven for about 5 more minutes or until cheese is melted.
Remove and cool for a fe minutes before serving.
These were yummy even though the bottom was slightly burned. I want to make them again with the defrosted hash browns.
