A Random 1950’s Meal

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!
