The time of the budget has risen across America in a way rarely seen in our history, so allow me to introduce the first of our budget meals: Leftover Fry Hash, a quick and easy way to use up the potato product of a previous night’s take out order. I thought I was a fucking genius when i woke up at 6 am and thought, oh my god what if I use my fries for a hash?
Turns out, I was a genius. It’s one of the few times I’ve cooked breakfast for myself and had to turn out a second plate for my husband when he woke up an hour later.
Looking for a meal that costs less than two dollars per individual serving? This Leftover Fry Hash is for you. The below recipe is for one serving. You may multiply as needed for the number of mouths you have to feed.
If you don't have leftover fries from a recent take out order or restaurant visit, feel free to use any type of frozen potato product you have on hand. Allow proper time for cooking according to the package.
Ingredients & Cost:
Final Cost by Whole Items: $7.19
Final Cost Per Serving: $1.57
