First of all, let me apologize for my recent lapses in writing. A combination of tax season and a year's worth of procrastination have sent me once again into the January Quickbooks scramble that always leaves me stressed and more than a little bit cranky.
On account of my slovenly ways, my family has had to endure numerous "on the fly" meals and overcooked crock pot creations. But with the tax stuff nearly behind me, I can start looking toward the big game day and some festive football watching cuisine.
I came across this recipe in a 1960 Ladies' Home Journal for Hunt's Bunburgers. As you can see, these are hamburgers baked right in the bun.
I'm not so sure this is a good idea, especially if you are watching something besides football; something like, oh, calories or saturated fat, perhaps? Nonetheless, you can cast caution to the wind and give these greasy treats a try. A followup of crushed Tums in a gelatin salad might not be a bad idea.
6 hamburger buns
1 lb. lean ground beef
2 Tbl finely chopped onions
1 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
2 - 8oz cans Hunt's Tomato Sauce
Hollow out centers of the buns, leaving bottoms and 1/2" rim. Crumble up the bread you have removed and mix well with meat, onion, salt, pepper, and 1 1/2 cans Hunt's Tomato Sauce. Fill buns. Bake on cookie sheet in moderately hot oven (375° F) for 20 minutes. Spoon remaining sauce over buns. Bake about 5 minutes more, until sauce is hot.
