Well, here is an interesting 1950’s lunch.
I decided to cook from the Record Book, so I opened up the book, and found the most interesting recipe: Sloppy Joe Franks. Nothing screamed 1950’s to me more than hotdogs served in a tomato sauce, made by tomato soup no doubt, and yellow squash.
Not entirely sure what I was thinking, but it did end up being a kid favorite, and I am sure grown ups can fancy this up with brats and more fresh ingredients. This does make a good lunch though, and I hope that you will take this recipe and make it your own.
Sloppy Joe Franks
1/2 cup chopped onion 1/3 cup water
2 tablespoons butter 1 to 1 1/2 tablespoons steak sauce
1 pound franks (8-10) cut into thirds 1 teaspoon prepared mustard
1 can condensed tomato rice soup 4 drops tobasco
Cook onion in butter till soft. Add remaining ingredients. Let bubble slowly without covering, about 15 minutes or till sauce is nice and thick. Stir once in a while near the end of cooking. Ladle into toasted buttered buns. Makes 8-10.
Have a great weekend!
