Burger Stuffed Onions

Hamburger stuffed onions recipe from 1964.
Hamburger and canned tuna were favorites for recipes in women's magazines back in the 1960's, and it would appear that Hunt's employed hoards of chefs to come up with recipes. They often had half a dozen or more in a single issue of a magazine.

This 1964 recipe features stuffed onions, which would probably be pretty good for you if you substituted ground turkey for the hamburger and eliminated the American cheese. However, if you want that true 60's flavor, then just follow the recipe.

Burger Stuffed Onions

6 large onions
2 Tbl Wesson pure vegetable oil
1 lb ground beef
2 Tbl chopped green pepper
2 Tbl dry bread crumbs
1/4 to 1/2 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
3 slices American Cheese
1 8 oz can Hunt's Tomato Sauce

Peel onions. Cook in boiling salted water about 30 minutes or until tender yet firm. Drain and cool. Slice off top third of each onion. Cut out centers to make cups. Chop 1/2 cup of the centers and sauté in Wesson with beef and green peppers for 5 minutes. (Save remaining onion for seasoning other dishes.) Mix in bread crumbs, chili powder, salt and pepper. Fill onion cups with meat mixture. Place stuffed onions in shallow baking dish. Top each onion with strips of cheese. Pour Hunt's Tomato Sauce of all and baste occasionally. Bake at 350°F for 20 minutes or until done. Makes 6 servings.
